Trident announces Iceni Grand Tourer ahead of Salon Prive 2012

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 23, 2012

At this year’s Salon Prive, Trident will bring its all-new Iceni Grand Tourer. According to the well-known British sports car maker, the Iceni Grand Tourer is built to order in Norfolk and priced from £75,000, but what’s more interesting is that the vehicle features the patented Torque Multiplication technology.

Thanks to this, the car has a top speed of almost 200 mph and can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. What is even more interesting is that the car is powered by a mid-front mounted 6.6-litre turbo-diesel engine, capable to run on mineral diesel, bio diesel, palm oil and linseed oil.

This engine delivers 430bhp and a staggering 950lbs ft of torque at under 3250rpm, but can be upgraded to 660bhp and 1050lbs ft of torque. According to the official press release, at a constant 70mph the specially tuned engine runs at just 980rpm, produces 700 lbs ft of torque, is capable of 68.9mpg and will keep going for over 2000 miles on one full tank of diesel.

Trident Sports Cars managing director, Phillip Bevan, says: “We are very pleased to be at Salon Privé which this year is a great celebration of all things British and home grown talent - something we feel very strongly about at Trident. It is also a place where sports cars and super cars of this calibre are sold, and we look forward to taking new orders for the Iceni at Syon Park this September.”
