Article by Christian Andrei, on July 11, 2011

Technical details as well as official images and a video have been released for the Codatronca Monza exotic racer from Spada Vetture Sport that will debut this April. Fans have been eagerly waiting for the arrival of this Corvette-powered hypercar with no windscreen.

Aside from a comprehensive image gallery of this hypercar, a video and official details of the Codatronca Monza have also been revealed. Aznom commissioned the one-off Codatronca Monza.

Aznom realized the interior design of the car that was based on the line of the 2008 Codatronca coupe. The car was designed to pay tribute to the Monza circuit, evoking images of the roadsters in the 1960s.

But the retro look is the only old aspect of the Codatronca Monza, which bears the most modern components, such as the aluminum chassis, a composite body, Brembo brakes and OZ Racing wheels covered with Pirelli PZero Corsa tires installed on the cars of the FIA GT3 racing, with ABS and a fully adjustable suspension system also derived from the FIA GT3.

When it comes to performance, the Spada Codatronca Monza is powered by a supercharged 7.0-liter V8 engine with an output of 710 hp and 950 Nm (701 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is partnered to a six-speed manual transmission, enabling the 1,180 kg (2,600 lb) supercar to accelerate from zero to sixty in 3 seconds and hit a top speed of 335 km/h (208 mph). It’s claimed that the Codatronca Monza will lead to a new stock model for street use that will be offered on demand.

True to its original design formula, Spadaconcept Studio Atelier has launched another exotic sport car out of the new Codatronca TS. There is really something so immensely unique about its form and front design. The truth is that the Spada Codatronca Monza doesn’t need try too hard to get all these attention.

Founded by Paolo Spada, Ercole Spada and Domiziano Boschi, the design studio has become an instrumental part in putting together all the elements and ideas to bring out the attitude in every car. The three designers were blessed with experiences in various design institutes before Spadaconcept came into existence. Boschi worked at the Mc Kinsey, Paolo Spada was a designer at Honda and Smart while Ercole Spada worked with the IDEA Institute, BMW and Zagato.

Spadaconcept Studio derived its formula not just based on the design but also on economic feasibility. Because of this, the studio was able to create outstanding works that landed them the Best Design award. Eco Globe acknowledged their design for watches, motorsport accessories, boats, and eclectic van among many others. The studio-atelier also designs for racecar driver Sebastien Loeb as well as the renowned Stilo Helmets.

Spadaconcept’s Ercole and Paolo Spada unleashed their racing instincts once again after a special client requested for a fully-customised Codatronca TS. With this exotic racecar, SpadaVettureSport is seeking first to build a smaller version to study the factors that contribute to pleasurable driving, aerodynamics and its lightness.

The Codatronca Monza also possesses similar characteristics and requirements particularly in designing the shape of the rear. Now, it’s up to Spadaconcept and Ercole Spada to conceptualise the legendary TZ1 and TZ2 as a source for inspiration.

Taking into consideration all the specs required for the same project, ITALTECNICA was assigned to develop the electronic and mechanical components of the Codatronca Monza TS. The Spada Codatronca has a V8 aluminium engine with dry pump emitting a powerful 700 horsepower at 6200 rpm. It also comes with an amazingly impressive torque of 950Nm at 4200 rpm. Bringing power above all is the rear wheels courtesy of the 6-gear transmission. The range limit of the 6th gear is at 7000 rpm, allowing the car to accelerate from 0-100Km/hr in only 3 seconds.

To answer the need for quality driving pleasure, Spadaconcept has focused more on this aspect than anything else. In order to do this, the designer team came up with a specially designed 3- level traction control system. This will provide the driver with an excellent performance under any road condition.

The customised vehicle is also equipped with GPS tracking system, lap timer, single tyre speed, lateral and longitudinal G-Meter and steering angle tracker. The equipment system is basically for checking the car’s performance. It currently has 40 active channels that can record as many as eighty hours of track driving.

Codatronca’s chassis is built with lightweight tubular aluminium coupled with roll bars for optimum safety. Meanwhile, the car’s body is built with durable and lightweight fibre to conceal the engine, chassis and other mechanical components.
