The Trident Iceni is a bespoke
two-seater sports car laid out in a traditional front engine,
rear wheel drive configuration. The Iceni was originally revealed
in 2002 as a prototype, the production model is due in 2009
The fully folded stainless steel chassis of the Trident Iceni
is guaranteed against corrosion for 100 years, and forms a complete
safety cell around the occupants protecting against front and
side impact. With its unique central spine rollover protection,
it has been tested and proven to have the highest torsional
rigidity (17000lb/ft per degree) of any car tested.
The curvaceous body of the Trident Iceni is formed from a lightweight
composite material, and can be ordered in any color.
The engine of the Trident Iceni is a GM sourced, 6.6l V8 turbo
diesel. Its location, although in the front, is behind the centre
line of the front axle, making its position more mid-engine
than front engine. The power supplied is in excess of 375 bhp
at 3100 rpm, whilst its torque in excess of 520lb/ft at 1800
rpm gives us an extremely easy car to drive with low engine
speed (maximum 4500 revs) and it will last for up to 250,000
miles. The engine is capable of running on either standard diesel
or biodiesel with absolutely no modifications needed.
Further innovations of the Trident Iceni include a fixed seating
position with electrically adjustable pedal box and steering
column and four oculight removable roof panels. The Iceni is
available in one model with a large variety of no-cost options
and color schemes to suit the buyer.
