2012 GTA Spano

The Spanish automaker GTA has returned to the Geneva Motor Show, this time with a production version of the company's Spano supercar. The coupe boasts a laundry list of exotic materials on hand, including a unibody shell constructed of titanium, kevlar and carbon fibre. All told, the package tips the scales at a scant 1,347 kg.

A total of 840 horsepower comes courtesy of an 8.3-litre V10, all of which is dumped on the rear tires through a seven-speed transmission. According to GTA, the Spano can hit 100 km/hr from a dead standstill in just 2.9 seconds. If you're keeping track, that's faster than the just-unveiled Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

As impressive as the go specs are, the vehicle has some stout stop-ware to match. AP supplied a set of front discs that are nearly 15 inches in diameter squeezed by mighty six-piston calipers. Too cool.

Of course, you'll pay for the privilege of being faster than the new Prancing Horse. No list price has been announced just yet, but with the stack of wild materials and heady horsepower on hand, you can bet your last penny this thing won't come cheap. GTA expects to deliver the first models by late 2012.
