World’s First Supercar To Use Graphene At Geneva 2015
As much as I love being at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show 2015, my fingers don’t like all the writing that I’m doing here. I love talking about these cars and I’ve been forcing my hands to work really hard. Sorry dudes!
Back to my next update from Geneva. GTA Motor’s new GTA Spano was presented on Wednesday, featuring a completely new taillight design, new headlights, new bumpers and a repositioning of the exhaust. More importantly, it’s the world’s first supercar to use graphene, an ultimate material that is about 100 times stronger than steel by weight, conducts heat and electricity with great efficiency and is nearly transparent.
Only 99 models of the Spania GTA will be built, and they combine all the automobile technology with perfect sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity. Its frontal view affords it a strong personality along with its two large lateral air intakes and its convex bonnet, completed with an aerodynamic streaming zone to facilitate the airflow in order to provide it an athletic look.
At the rear, the design department has attempted to create the best way to channel the air flowing over the car. The wing fits perfectly into the design with under-air channelling, while the two air intakes and the twin exhaust system emphasize the vehicle’s sporty character. There’s a rear barrel to channel air and to improve the aerodynamic load.
The large glazed surface affords the vehicle a strong quality, another of its distinguishing features. The Spania GTA has a patented interior lighting and liquid crystal shading system, and the degree of light required inside may be regulated. Its completely novel sun visors are set into the glass and boast the same technology.
Inside, the dashboard has been designed to transmit the sporting look yet elegant and comfortable. The steering wheel is made out of carbon fiber and leather. The prevalent feature of the instrument panel is an LCD screen, which can be personalized according to the customer’s requirements and provides the driver with all the necessary information. It includes every button required to adjust the high front bodywork, the rear wing and also the glass roof opacity system.
Power to the car is a Dodge’s twin-turbo, 8.0-litre V10 engine, spitting out 925 hp and 90 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed sequential gearbox sends all those ponies to the rear wheels, allowing a 0-62 MPH within 2.9 seconds and a top speed of 230 MPH.
Likewise, Spania GTA has developed a new carbon monocoque chassis which is unique among all the supersport car manufacturers, with innovative components such as titanium and graphene, which offers the best rigidity and lightness — total weight is 2976 lbs.
This new GTA Spano is quite a bit more powerful, faster and, I think, very expensive. Only 99 models will be shipped, so it’s not a car that you’ll often see on any street around the world.
