The Spano is the product of GTA Motor, a racing team based in Valencia, Spain.

The Spano was in development for five years
after the company director Domingo Ochoa decided to produce a supercar. The car itself was designed by Sento Pallardó, GTA Motor´s engineering director, and only 99 are scheduled to be built.

The chassis of the GTA Spano is formed using aerospace derived technology and the structure is built from a mixture of carbon fibre, titanium and Kevlar. Yet while the styling of the GTA Spano has all the right ingredients including a low, wide stance, visible mid-mounted engine, sleek headlights and lateral air intakes it is quite generic and lacks any defining features which set it apart from the rest of the supercar pack. However the panoramic glass roof is an intelligent idea which cleverly helps to increase the feeling of space in the cockpit and improve the drivers field of vision.

Access to the interior is of the GTA Spano is done by pushing the GTA badge located just behind the side window. Once inside the occupants are met with a range of high quality materials like leather, carbon-fibre, aluminium and titanium. The interior is spacious (for a supercar) and can be trimmed to suit the buyers tastes. Other features of the interior include a rear view camera which relays video to an LCD screen in the dashboard instead of a rearview mirror, electronically adjustable sports seats, CD/MP3/iPod capable stereo system, carbon fibre steering wheel and navigation system.

Powering the GTA Spano is a mid-mounted 8.3 litre, supercharged V10 which develops 780 hp @ 6,300 rpm and 920 Nm of torque. The Spano is also available in a Bioethanol version which produces a colossal 840 hp @ 6,250 rpm. An electronic power control system means the driver can regulate the peak power output of the car from 450 hp up to the maximum. The power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed transmission available in three different flavors, automatic, sequential paddle shift, or manual. This potent drive train means the GTA Spano can rocket to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds on its way to a 217 mph top speed. To compensate for this performance the Spano is fitted with AP Racing 6 piston calipers and carbon ceramic discs. A traction control system is also fitted as standard.

The wheels, 19" up front and 20" at the rear, have been designed specifically for the GTA Spano and are wrapped in tires manufactured exclusively for the car by Pirelli. To make the car more usable on the road GTA have equipped it with an adjustable ride height system which can raise the front end by up to 8 cm when going over speed bumps or potholes.
