GTA Concept in Final Testing Stage

The century old Spanish sportscar manufacturing tradition will... Wait, what? Is there such a thing as a Spanish sports car manufacturing tradition?

Actually no, there is none and apart from the a.d. Tramontana, the Spanish have done little to impress the automotive world with home made sports cars.

But this doesn't mean they can't try. And even if the name doesn't ring any bells, Spanish manufacturer GTA Motor is getting ready to unveil, towards the end of April, the GTA concept, a -you guessed it- new Spanish sports car.

The concept is in the final testing stage on the track, but its builder is yet to decide on a name for the vehicle. We only hope they do a better job at building cars then they do at picking out names (we did plan to name this article "GTA's GTA concept in final testing stages", but this doesn't sound right, now does it?).

We'll have to wait and see. GTA (the company) says that GTA (the car) has five world patents used in its development. The engine propelling it is a V10, mounted in a longitudinal rear position, that develops a whooping 780 horsepower and 920 Nm of torque. That makes it go from naught to sixty in under 3 seconds and reach a top speed of 350 km/hour.

The engine is controlled via a seven speed sequential gearbox, but GTA (the company) offers the option of an automatic transmission with paddle shift in the steering wheel.

The body of the car can be raised or lowered thanks to multi-regulation shock absorbers and double wishbone configuration suspension systems. The tires were manufactured by Pirelli exclusively for the concept and measure 255/35 on a 19 inch wheel at the front and 335/35 on a 20 inch one at the rear.

As we said, it (the car) will be here sometimes in April. The manufacturer says it will build only 99 units (they do like simple names and numbers, don't they?), to be distributed at dealerships across the planet. The price is yet unknown, but if you asked us, we'd say it's worth it. Even if it's Spanish and has no name.
