Jiotto Caspita was a super car concept designed and constructed
by a Japanese company, Jiotto Design, in 1989. Jiotto Design
was a company set up in 1988 by Dome (a race car manufacturer)
to act as an automotive design agency.
The initial Jiotto Caspita prototype was powered by a detuned
Formula One engine (a Motori Moderni flat 12). In 1990 Jiotto
descided to replace the 12 cylinder engine with a Judd V10.
Both engines were transversely mounted, and powered through
a 6 speed gearbox built by Weismann. The Caspita made its debut
at the 1990 Tokyo Motor Show.
Unfortunatley the Jiotto Caspita project was cancelled in 1993
due to the global recession which meant lack of demands for
supercars. With the 577 horsepower V10 engine, the Jiotto Caspita
was capable of reaching 199 miles per hour, and reaching 60
mph in just 4.7 seconds.
