GTA Spano introduced at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on March 9, 2012

The GTA Spano -- the first Spanish supercar – was introduced in its full production form at the Geneva Motor Show. This project has been in development for the last five years. At last year’s show in Geneva, a pre-production concept was presented. For now, here are the full specs and details. It is powered by an 8.3-liter V10 engine that delivers 820 hp (611 kW / 831 PS) and 960 Nm (708 lb-ft) of torque to the rear-wheels through a seven-speed automatic or manual transmission. Its use of carbonfiber in the chassis and body work gave this super car a kerb weight of only 1350 kg (2976 lbs).

Just know that compared to the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta that was applauded at the Geneva Motor Show, the GTA Spano is lighter by 175 kg and yet it has 90hp more. It can sprint from zero to 100 kph (62 mph) in only 2.9 seconds and it can hit a top speed of 350 kph (217 mph). These figures instantly give the car a ticket into the super car category. All of the 99 units that are expected to be produced will be made to order. However, pricing hasn’t been announced yet.

Just like what big automobile industry companies have done, the GTA symbol has been associated with an animal figure – a wolf that symbolizes light that stands for strength and courage. The wolf is also the symbol of the coat of arms of Domingo Ochoa, the founder and company owner. The surname Ochoa has an “aquitano” origin and originates from Otxoa, and from the word Otsoa, which means wolf. Its logotype also shows a red and white checked flag, which GTA Motor has used to distinguish itself in the over 15 years that it has competed in motorsport.
