Spanish car manufacturer Aspid Cars has rolled out the first of the teaser pictures of its new GT-21 Invictus, sports car. This is the second vehicle series from Aspid after its pretty serious Super Sports (SS) series which resembled the Lotus 7 somewhat.
The GT-21 Invictus matches the Aspid Super Sports, but it is quite bigger and churns out more power, according to the words of Ignacio Fernandez Rodriquez, Chief designer of the car and company’s founder. He also added that this has been a challenging designing exercise but he was grateful to have team of such talented and dedicated designers.
The latest Aspid is built over a lightweight chassis and uses space grade aluminum. Composite materials and high strength steels on the body to keep the dry weight at the minimum possible value of 990kg or 2,182 lbs.
The New GT 21 is about 700 mm longer than the Super sports at 4447 mm, while it measures about 1883mm wide and just 1226 mm tall.
While the SS use to exploit a 398 hp 2.0 liter turbo’d four, the new GT 21 Invictus uses BMW made 4.4 liter turbocharged V8 engine which produces a peak power of about 450 horsepower. A dual-clutch transmission with F1 inspired shift paddle on the steering transmits energy to the rear wheels. The company hopes that the car will be able to reach 100kmph in less than 3 seconds and will have a top speed of 300 kmph.
