Spain finally throws its hat into the European supercar wars

While all sorts of countries from around the world are getting into the Supercar market — such as Poland with its Arrinera De Veno, India its DC Design Avanti, and Mexico its Mastretta MXT — Spain has kept conspicuously out of the dialogue. Not any more. Spanish auto manufacturing startup Aspid has just unveiled its plans to produce a GT-style supercar powered by a 4.4L V8 mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox or six-speed manual. The BMW-sourced engine is tuned to generate 450-hp, with a 0-60 time of under 3 seconds and a 189 miles per hour top speed. Visually, the GT-21 Invictus looks a bit like a Mercedes Benz McLaren that’s gone to the same hairdresser as the Lamborghini Reventon or Aventador, a pure brute sure to crane necks should Aspid ever go into production. Another positive is the Aspid GT-21 Invictus’s weight: 2,182 pounds due to its composite body panels and spaceframe chassis. Production is slated for 2014, but no word yet on pricing.
