GTA Spano, 2013

  • GTA Spano, 2013

GTA Motor officially launched the production version of GTA Spano at the 2012 Geneva International Motor Show.

The main innovations included in this car compared to the prototype version, which debuted a year before at the same Swiss trade fair, lie in its exterior design.

Production model introduces new components, such as front and side air intakes, a front bonnet, rear-view mirrors and a door-opening system. At the rear, we find lots of innovative aspects, such as a new large-sized diffuser, which confer it a more modern and aggressive look, among others technical innovations.

A limited edition of 99 GTA Spano models will be produced. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 Km/h in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of over 350 km/h. Its chassis has been created by combining carbon fibres, titanium and Kevlar, which has become a reference in the automobile sector thanks to its great rigidity and its lightness. GTA Spano has its own V10 engine, which is longitudinally positioned at the rear with 820 HP and a torque of 960 nm.

After 15 years of top automobile motorsport, five years ago GTA Motor decided to go one step forward and make director Domingo Ochoa's dream come true; build a supersports car that combines all the automobile technology with perfect sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity.

So with more than 30 year's experience in the automobile sector, Ochoa set the basis to accomplish his project, a leading Spanish supersports car in an attempt to combine the select and reduced club of handcrafted constructors.

The technological experience and the development of applied innovations became the basic factor behind this project, and contributed revolutionary technical solutions in the automobile sector. GTA intends to convert this technological transfer into a launching point for a new pioneering automobile industry in Spain.

Designed by GTA Motor's engineering director, Valencian-born Sento Pallardó, GTA Spano boasts the most advanced technology, innovative aesthetics, researched aerodynamics and a good number of solutions for the future, all of which are capable of competing with international prestigious brands in terms of both image and performance.

As a sign of its exclusivity, only 99 models of this extraordinary supersports car will be built to order and several world patents have been obtained. Indeed it is a car that is the beginning of an industry which leads to job creation and to also transfer the resulting technology to other sectors of society.

The Exterior Design
GTA Motor's design department, directed by Sento Pallardó, has strived to create a unique automobile that resembles no other car in any way. In this way, a preliminary design has evolved until the present-day, which has succeeded in combining sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity in a single concept. In other words, a very different style to that which currently exists on the international automobile scene.

One of GTA Spano's main distinguishing features lies in its lateral view, where doors fit perfectly into air intakes which, apart from performing an aerodynamic function, refrigerate elements such as oil coolers, power-assisted steering and brakes, among others. Its design is original and unprecedented, which is yet another distinguishing mark of Concept. As in all true sportscars, the doors have not doorframes.

Access to the interior is accomplished by pressing the GTA logotype, rendering it a more elegant design without traditional handles.

Its frontal view affords it with a strong personality along with its two large lateral air intakes and its convex bonnet, completed with an aerodynamic streamlining zone to facilitate the air flow, thus providing it an athletic look.

At the rear, the design department has attempted to create the best way to channel the air that flows under the car. The resulting effect is a rear design with plenty of character, marked by the use of glass with its small openings that perform a refrigeration function for the engine. The wing fits perfectly into the design with under air channelling, while the two air intakes and the twin exhaust system emphasise the vehicle's sport character. There is a rear barrel to channel air and to improve the aerodynamic load.

The wing mirrors have been designed as a framework with a carbon fibre finish and a wing-like arm, built in aeronautical mechanised aluminium.

The large glazed surface affords the vehicle a strong quality, another of its distinguishing features. The vehicle has a patented interior lighting and liquid crystal shading system, and the degree of light required inside may be regulated. Its completely novel sun visors are set into the glass and boast the same technology.

Its electrically-operated windows have been made according to state-of-the-art technology, in such a way that tracks are maintenance-free and work-problem free at various temperatures.

The wheels, 19" at the front and 20" at the rear, are characterised by their angular shape. They have been designed specifically and exclusively for this car model, with offers a continuousness effect with the chassis. There is a flat exterior part that perfoms an aerodynamic function, offering greater resistance and involving less weight.

Interior Design
The interior design has been achieved with high-quality materials such as leather and carbon fibre. There is ample space; indeed a person over 2 meters high can be comfortably seated inside. Its panoramic glass roof enhances the sense of spaciousness and also improves luminosity inside.

The dashboard has been designed to transmit the car's values; although it has a sporting look, it is also elegant to give an impression of luxury and comfort.

The prevalent feature of the instrument panel is an LCD screen, which can be personalised according to the customer's requirements and provides the driver with all the necessary information. It includes every button required to adjust the high front bodywork, the rear wing and also the glass roof opacity system.

The steering wheel is made out of carbon fibre and leather, another typical sporting feature of this vehicle. A joystick is located behind the steering wheel to operate lights, wipers and indicators.

Its Recaro seats, made totally out of leather, are another feature of its sport design and are perfectly held. They display the brand's anagrams, thus affording the vehicle more exclusivity. The seats also have an electrical adjustment system with heating and refrigeration.

One of GTA Spano's innovations is that there is no central rear-view mirror; instead there is a rear camera that projects onto the LCD screen and is aptly located on the dashboard. It also has a wide-angle camera to facilitate parking manoeuvres which automatically connects after activating the rear gear. Interior lights also use LED technology.

The dashboard has a large state-of-the-art 7" LCD screen with several functions such as navigation, radio with MP3 CD, an iPod port and Bluetooth for mobile phones.

GTA has two boots; a 100-litre front one and a 200-litre rear one; which are not inconsiderable for a vehicle of such characteristics. The front boot has a reverse opening system to make the task of loading luggage easier.

There are also two glove compartments, one located in the central compartment and the other on the front passenger's side. It is possible to refrigerate them and they also include a drinks holder.

GTA Spano has also incorporated practical compartments into both doors. The interior colour range varies according to the customer's preferences.

Quality and elegance are the main characteristics of the GTA interior design, which is also fully equipped.

The Engine
GTA has developed a special engine for this car, and has opted for a V10, 8.3 litre engine placed in a longitudinal rear position. It has 820 HP and 960 Nm torque.

GTA's technicians have worked hard to enhance the compressor so that GTA achieves amazing performances at a top speed of over 350 km/h with acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in under three seconds. These figures place it directly among the five fastest cars commercialised in the world. The precision of the engine's control unit helps the engine to offer and increase in power progressively under all circumstances.

GTA Spano also has an electronic power control system, supplied according to the customer's wishes, which regulates power from a minimum of 450 cv to maximum power.

The gearbox is available in two options, all of which have seven gears: automatically sequential 7 speed with a paddle shift steering wheel or manual sequential.

Chassis and dynamic performance
The chassis has been one of aspects on which special emphasis has been placed during the construction of GTA Spano. The most state-of-the-art technologies have been applied to the automobile world, thus making Spano not only one of the few cars in the world with aeronautical components, but also a reference on the automobile scene.

The chassis has been built completely out of carbon fibre, titanium and Kevlar, whose rigidity is four times greater than that of today's presently commercialised supersport cars, which offers the best level of safety. With this technology, the weight of the monocoque is only 56 kg, while total weight is 1350 kg, with all the liquids and the most convenient equipment on board.

Thanks to its special chassis outline and the materials used, GTA has great traction capacity and is easy to drive, unlike what one might think of a car whose power is 820 hp. In this case, it offers a turning circle of 10.8 meters to assist driving, with very impressive manoeuvrability.

To bring this huge potential to a standstill, GTA's braking system includes 380 mm-diameter carbon ceramic ventilated disc brakes and 6-piston callipers supplied by AP Racing, with pneumatic assistance and ABS. GTA Spano also has a sophisticated traction control system.

The tyres are manufactured exclusively for this car by Pirelli: 255/35 on a 19" front wheel and 335/30 on a 20" rear wheel. GTA Spano also offers self-adjusting shock absorbers which are capable of raising the car by up to 8 cm to avoid potholes and regular speed bumps on roads, and to facilitate access to garages. It also has twin trapezium suspension, which enables all kinds of adjustments.

GTA has come to distribution agreements with the most important companies on the world automobile scene. GTA has previous agreements in countries such as China, United Arab Emirates, USA, Russia, Germany, Italy, and New Zealand. Nowadays, GTA Motor continues negotiating with other countries to increase and consolidate its distribution chain.

GTA's maintenance and after-sales service exclusivity are defined by firms with ample experience which fulfil all the requirements expected by GTA. In short, it has sought maximum quality in all the brand's actions with no discrimination per geographical area.

FM Auto Mazzanti Evantra V8, 2013

  • FM Auto Mazzanti Evantra V8, 2013

The carbon fiber composite body of the Evantra V8 is characterized by the new rear wing and the series of inserts realized in carbon fiber, or brushed aluminium.
The inside a new chrome-molibden rollcage is positioned under the roof while another one connects the new engine to the rear suspension hard-points, this way enchancing the structural stiffness of the chassis and in the same time helps protecting the occupants.

The Evantra's "mechanical heart" is an aluminium V8, naturally aspirated 7.0 L. which is capable of developing 701 hp @ 6600 rpm and 848 Nm @ 4500 rpm. The engine has a compression ratio of 11.0, a dry sump lubrification system, and valves, connecting rods in titanium.

The performance of the Evantra V8 equipped with a 6-speed sequential gearbox arrives up to the maximum velocity of over 350 Km/h with an acceleration of 0-100 in 3.2 seconds.

The aerodynamic development process was realized in partnership with YSIM, a company with notable experience in F1 and Le mans.

SILA Holding Industriale, leader company of gearshift systems, has developed a special version of its robotized gearshift system "silatronic" for Mazzanti.

The power of the Evantra V8 is transferred onto the tarmac thanks to special high performance tyres from CONTINENTAL 255/30 R20 front and 305/25 R20 rear, mounted on special 20" OZ alloy wheels. The braking system comes from BREMBO, formed by 380mm discs with 6 piston calipers in the front and 360mm discs with 4 piston caliper is the back (carbon-ceramic system is optional).

The tailor-made interior of the client is covered with all-natural leather prepared with special aniline leather treatment. The incredible soft touch of the leather is achieved thanks to a collaboration with a leader of the fashion/luxury sector. Every aspect of personalization is possible with the infinite options of special material, including exotic leather and precious materials.

The center console is equipped with a dash and data acquisition system from AIM and a Headunit (NAVI/CD/MP3) from BOSCH as first equipment. The engine starter button is placed onto the roof panel in "Mazzanti" style as in the "sister car" ANTAS. On the lower part of the console the modality selector is placed with different maps for the engine/gearbox, "Strada - Street" and "Corsa - Race". On the NARDI steering wheel a small display shows the actual gear, while behind the paddles are placed.

Technical specifications
  •     Engine layout: V8 naturally aspirated

Eterniti Artemis, 2013

  •  Eterniti Artemis, 2013

Eterniti Motors, the London-based boutique luxury car maker, unveiled the engineering prototype of its first car at Beijing's Auto China 2012 international motor show.

The vehicles on display are in-use, running prototypes so do not represent the final finish quality but do closely reflect the definitive interior and exterior styling.

Artemis, the car's named, is the world's first Super-SUV - a term created by Eterniti for a new class of vehicle providing the higher levels of luxury, performance and exclusivity demanded by today's wealthy car buyers but which have not been available until now.

The car's production by summer 2012, beating Bentley, Lamborghini and Maserati's luxury SUV offerings to market. Orders can be taken now through Eterniti's sales operations in Europe (London) and Asia-Pacific (Hong Kong and Taipei), for deliveries starting in autumn 2012.

The car has a limousine-like rear cabin featuring up to 100mm of additional legroom, twin reclining rear seats with heating and cooling, iPad-ready holders with electronic reveal, and a drinks chiller. This satisfies a specific need, particularly in Asian markets, for a car suitable for both being chauffeured in and driving for pleasure. Unlike a conventional limousine, an SUV can offer excellent handling and driver appeal, and the ride height and ruggedness are suitable for poor road surfaces which can make limousines and conventional high-performance cars completely impractical. The Eterniti Artemis is the ultimate crossover.

The interior is lavishly handcrafted, with a specification also including the finest leathers, quilted undercarpets and boot trim, lambswool rugs, veneers including natural woods, piano black and carbon fibre, a choice of sunroofs and starlight roof lining, and a state-of-the-art audio system.

The body panels are carbon composite and hand-built, and finished in a large choice of paint colours, complemented by different chrome trim styles. Ultra-low profile 315/25 tyres sit on dedicated 23" super-lightweight forged alloy rims in a variety of styles.

The 4.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine produces over 600bhp (441kW) and 750Nm (553 lb ft) torque, can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.5 secs and can exceed 290 km/h. Performance and handling have been developed by a race-bred British engineering team led by Alastair Macqueen. Macqueen previously developed to production the Jaguar XJ220, then the world's fastest road car, and has engineered three outright Le Mans 24 Hour race wins for Jaguar and Bentley.

The car has been test-driven by F1 Grand Prix winner Johnny Herbert, who play an ongoing role in product development as well as being an ambassador for the brand.

With a similar specification to the Beijing show vehicles the Eterniti Artemis is priced at the local currency equivalent of £210,000 plus local taxes in all markets except China, which will have a unique pricing strategy. A fully bespoke service will also be offered for customers wanting complete personalisation.

The Eterniti is establishing a network of wholly-owned showrooms in key centres. Its London headquarters also has an atelier and a build facility where vehicles can be created and hand-built on-site to any specification. The facilities completed by July 2012, followed later in the year by Eterniti-owned showrooms in Taipei and Hong Kong, which serve as the company's Asia-Pacific hub, with Tokyo following in 2013. The company is actively looking for retail partners to develop representation in China during 2013.

Cars covered by a full two-year, 100,000-mile warranty including servicing, and UK customers  have access to finance and insurance.

Ford Mustang Boss 302, 2013

  •   Ford Mustang Boss 302, 2013

The Ford Mustang Boss 302 is all about performance, and a nod to heritage comes standard with new paint options and design details for 2013.

A new hockey stick graphic featuring reflective stripes is added to the new Boss, calling back the 1970 Boss 302. 2013 Boss 302 and Boss Laguna Seca models feature new School Bus Yellow paint, honoring Parnelli Jones' 1970 Trans-Am championship car prepared by Bud Moore.

"Everything we did for 2013 is consistent with and links directly back to our 1970 heritage. The reflective stripes and hockey stick graphic in particular mean something to Mustang enthusiasts," said Dave Pericak, Mustang chief engineer. "Last year, we proved the car had what it takes to perform, and this year we focused on enhancing its eye-catching looks and celebrating its history."

The reflective stripes on Boss come to life when lights hit them, similar to how they did in 1970 on the Ford Mustang Boss 302. The new stripe follows the classic hockey stick motif by going over the fender and extending down the body panel.

Boss Laguna Seca has new Sterling Gray accents and will be available in vintage School Bus Yellow and black paint offerings, complemented by hockey stick stripes and gray interior rear cross-brace. Gray also sets off the front grille, mirror caps and rear pedestal spoiler, while Laguna Seca rear badging and unique two-tone gray and silver wheels round out the exterior accents. Unlike the previous model, the roof will not feature colored accents.

Similar to the redesigned base Mustang lineup, the front end offers a more powerful design with a more prominent grille. A more powerful splitter and functional hood extractors add to that look. Boss Mustang has new signature lighting, with standard HID headlamps and LED-surround taillamps.

The 2013 Boss 302 also offers a unique functional design feature in the grille with removable covers where fog lamps would be. For improved cooling on track days, the covers can be easily removed with a screwdriver.

The rear end features a high-gloss black panel that connects the taillamps. The taillamps deliver a smoked appearance that matches up with the sinister look up front.

The new Mustang Boss 302 includes Ford SYNC, the voice-activated in-car connectivity system, as a standard feature. With the base SYNC package, customers enjoy the core hands-free features and services that have quickly established SYNC as a must-have technology, with more than 76 percent of current SYNC users saying they would recommend the system to others.

Some features of SYNC:
  •     Hands-free, voice-activated calling via a Bluetooth-connected mobile phone and control of a USB-connected digital music player
  •     911 Assist™, the automated emergency calling service that is free for the life of the vehicle
  •     Vehicle Health Report, the on-demand diagnostic and maintenance information service

Revved up and ready
The powerful Boss engine yields 444 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque, while still offering a smooth idle and low-end torque for comfortable around-town driving. A race-inspired clutch with upgraded friction materials transmits power, while a short-throw, close-ratio six-speed manual handles gear change duties.

Power is delivered to a 3.73-ratio rear axle using carbon fiber plates in the limited-slip differential to improve handling and longevity. For those who want even more precise control over power delivery, a torque-sensing (Torsen) limited-slip differential is available, coupled with Recaro® front seats.

In keeping with the Boss mandate to provide the best-handling Mustang ever, the already strong Mustang GT suspension system has been further refined. Higher-rate coil springs on all four corners, stiffer suspension bushings and a larger-diameter rear stabilizer bar all contribute to the road racing mission, and Boss models are lowered by 11 millimeters in front and 1 millimeter at the rear versus Mustang GT. But the real key to handling is in the adjustable shocks and struts, standard on all Boss Mustangs.

Working in concert with the suspension upgrades, Boss 302 receives unique, lightweight 19-inch black alloy racing wheels in staggered widths: 9 inches in front, 9.5 inches in the rear. The Pirelli PZero summer tires are sized specifically for each end of the car, with the front wheels receiving 255/40ZR-19 tires while the rear stays planted thanks to 285/35ZR-19 rubber.

Boss braking is also up to the challenge, using Brembo four-piston calipers acting on 14-inch vented rotors up front. In back, standard Mustang GT brakes are upgraded with a Boss-specific high-performance pad compound. The combination of vented brake shields and unique Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) tuning gives Boss drivers maximum control and rapid, repeatable fade-free stops in road and race situations alike.

Boss 302 circa 1969-70
With styling tweaked by newly arrived Ford designer Larry Shinoda, the new-for-1969 Boss 302 sported front and rear spoilers, blacked-out hood treatment and racy side stripes for a look that screamed performance.

Beyond the bodywork, the Boss 302 didn't disappoint. Its engine combined a four-bolt main Windsor small-block with reworked heads from the then-new 351 Cleveland engine. A forged steel crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons rounded out the reciprocating assembly. The result was a free-breathing, high-revving powerplant making what Ford claimed was 290 gross horsepower - though actual output is estimated to be significantly higher.

The Ford engineers thoroughly massaged Mustang's suspension in an effort to meet then-boss Semon "Bunkie" Knudsen's mandate "to build absolutely the best-handling street car available on the American market." Stiffer springs and shocks, special sway-bar tuning, a stiffened chassis and wide tires led to the fastest Mustang ever to lap the Ford test track up to that point.

Ferrari SP12 EC, 2012

  • Ferrari SP12 EC, 2012

Ferrari enthusiast and great musician like Eric Clapton a one-off car just had to be produced. Designed by the Centro Stile Ferrari in collaboration with Pininfarina and the engineers from Maranello, the Ferrari SP12 EC was created as homage to Clapton's career and his long lasting experience as a Ferrari owner.

The world-famous guitar player has been attached to one particular Ferrari model: the 512 BB, of which he has owned three over the years. So his desire was to drive a car inspired by this model, with influences from the multi-award winning 458 Italia. Exclusively in the latest issue of the Ferrari Official Magazine Eric Clapton talks about his passion and how the idea of a one-off car was born.

Meticulous attention in terms of style and technology was paid to the proportions and architecture of the SP12 EC - which is part of Ferrari's One-Off Programme - making this exceptional car even more significant. Just like music is created, applying the right notes in the right places to build a musical score, so was the creative process behind the Ferrari SP12 EC.

For Eric Clapton, following the project through from what was, essentially, a blank canvas, was 'one of the most satisfying things I've ever done." Unique and irreproducible like the final car.
