Captured: Spania GTA Spano

Features I By John Beltz Snyder I March 07, 2013
When you think of European supercars, Spain probably isn’t the first country that comes to mind. Unless, of course, you’re a fan of the Spania GTA Spano.
The GTA Spano’s biturbocharged 8.4-liter V-10 produces 900 horsepower, with torque electronically limited to 1000 newton meters (737 pound-feet). With all that shove going to the rear wheels, it can sprint to 62 miles per hour in just 2.9 seconds. Top speed is over 217 miles per hour.
