    Spania GTA Spano 2010-

    Spania GTA Spano 2010-
    The Spania GTA Spano is a limited-production sports car produced by Spanish automobile manufacturer Spania GTA, a sister company to GTA Motor Competición. Only 99 units of the GTA Spano are expected to be built.

    Development
    After 15 years of racing experience in various leagues with Spania GTA Competición, team director Domingo Ochoa wanted to pursue his goal of bringing a Spanish sports car into production. On April 29th, 2009, After five years in development, the GTA Spano was first presented to a select group at L'Hemisfèric in the City of Arts and Sciences, Valencia. This pre-production model used an 8.3 L twin-turbocharged Viper V10 engine, rated at 780 hp (582 kW) and 920 N⋅m (679 lb⋅ft) of torque on regular pump gas and up to 820 hp (611 kW) on E85 biofuel.

    The GTA Spano was first displayed to the public at the 2010 Top Marques Monaco exhibition. It was displayed with the same specifications as the previous year's prototype.
    The Spano GTA made its first Geneva Motor Show appearance the following year, in March 2011. This version of the car also used the 8.3 L V10, with three transmission options: a 7-speed automated manual, a 7-speed automated manual, with paddle-shifters, and a 7-speed manual

    First generation (2013–2015)
    The production version of the GTA Spano was unveiled at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, four years after the initial presentation of the prototype in Valencia. This version of the car used a revised, supercharged version of the V10 engine now displacing 8.4 L and rated at 900 hp (671 kW) and 1,000 N⋅m (738 lb⋅ft) torque. Only two of the original three transmission options were available for the production version of the GTA Spano; the 7-speed automated manual and the 7-speed manual.

    According to the manufacturer, performance figures for the first generation GTA Spano were estimated to be; 0–97 km/h (60 mph) acceleration time of 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).

    Second generation (2015–present)

    At the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, Spania GTA introduced an overhauled version of the GTA Spano. Several internal and external changes were made to differentiate this from the first generation model, including completely revised styling. Like the pre-production model, the second generation's Viper V10 is twin-turbocharged, however it is now rated at 925 hp (690 kW) and 1,220 N⋅m (900 lb⋅ft) of torque. The only transmission now offered is a new 7-speed paddle-shift automated manual, produced by CIMA.

    In the development of the second generation of the GTA Spano, Spania GTA partnered with Spanish nanotechnology firm Graphenano to incorporate graphene materials into the car's chassis. The manufacturer claims that the use of graphene in the bodywork increases the car's structural rigidity and decreases weight. The second generation car also features more extensive use of carbon fiber body panels.

    The new GTA Spano is estimated by the manufacturer to accelerate from 0–97 km/h (60 mph) in 2.9 seconds, and achieve a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph).
