GTA Motor has just rolled out its brand-new supercar, the V10-powered, 820-horsepower Spano here at the Geneva Motor Show. The car has a carbon fiber-kevlar composite and aluminum chassis, and will be limited to a run of 99 examples worldwide.

With all that power and very little weight, the Spano makes it to 60 mph in under three seconds, and GTA says it will top out at 217 mph. The car carries massive 380 mm (nearly 15-inch) six-piston caliper AP Racing disc brakes with ABS, and the brakes sap off speed with the help of a ridiculous wide set of Pirelli PZero Rosso 330s (19- and 20-inches wide, respectively).

The car is designed with performance in mind, but it's not a totally stripped-out track-day car, keeping things civilized with a panoramic roof and a carbon fiber luggage compartment complete with fitted bags.

Amazing GTA Spano debut

GTA Spano has made its debut, a great success, at the 81st edition of the Geneva International Motor Show, considered the most important car show in Europe and one of the most important in the world.

During the two first days of the fair, which are reserved for specializing press, the 100-m2 stand prepared by GTA Motor for this occasion, was one of the most visited stands and amazed by the international press.

GTA Motor took this opportunity to launch the GTA Spano version, with a 820 hp V10 engine.

The International Geneva Motor Show, with more than 10.000 accredited journalists, will open its doors to the public between 3-13th March.

A limited edition of 99 models of GTA Spano will be produced. This brand is characterised by its exclusive look and high performance, which accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h in under 3 seconds and has a top speed of over 350 km/h, figures proving its potential.

Experience in competition has been a key factor to develop this car, which has several world patents. Its chassis has been created by combining Kevlar, carbon fibres and titanium, and it has become a reference in the automobile sector. It has a V10 engine which is longitudinally positioned at the rear with 820 HP and a torque of 960 nm.

It comes with the latest Pirelli Pzero tyres, which measure 255/35 on a front 19" wheel and 335/30 on a 20" rear wheel. These wheels are manufactured exclusively for this car.

Its braking system is ABS-based with a 380-mm-diameter carbon ceramic ventilated disc brake system and 6 piston callipers supplied by AP Racing. Its glass panoramic roof provides it with a feeling of openness, makes it sporty and elegant, and has a patented system of interior lighting and liquid crystal shading thus rendering its interior a feeling of generous space.
