Six years after its debut, Spania GTA is now set to introduce the next iteration of the Spano at the Geneva Motor Show next week. The Spanish boutique supercar manufacturer teased the model with a photo yesterday, the aggressive rear-end peeking out menacingly from underneath its cover. From what we can see here, the rear fascia gets quite an update that includes new lighting and exhausting piping as well as a new shape.

But, when it arrives, the biggest news about the Spano will be that engine. While the old Spano had an 8.4-litre V10, the new model will feature a slightly smaller 8.0-litre V10 powerplant, in the intertest of, err… efficiency. But, more significantly, power has been bumped up from the already monstrous 900hp to 925hp now, thanks to twin turbos, while the torque figure now stands at 1220Nm.

 That’s good enough to endow the new Spano with a 0-100kmph time of 2.9 seconds, and a top speed of over 370 kmph should you find the road to stretch its legs.

GTA states that the Spano will be built in collaboration with another Spanish company called Graphenano. As you might have guessed from the name, Graphenano is an R&D leader in graphene production and the Spano is reportedly the world’s first sportscar to take advantage of the exotic material, with chassis and bodywork composed of carbon fiber, titanium, Kevlar and graphene.

Other details about the GTA Spano will be revealed as it nears its Geneva unveil, but if you’re one of the lucky souls with the will – and the means – to get your hands on one these, we suggest you book yours right now. GTA is producing just 99 of these exotic machines, so don’t expect to see it at your local car park anytime soon.
