How can a car that’s stripped down to everything except a tube-frame carbon fiber body and a 170 horsepower Ducati 1198’s engine be something worth the $85,000 price tag attached to it?
Well, normally cars like that aren’t worth even half of what this car is worth, but there’s something uniquely intoxicating about the Spartan V. Sure, it’s got no wipers, no doors, no turn signals, and even no headlights. But what it does have is a lightweight carbon fiber body that weighs around 660 pounds. It’s got a top speed of 280 kmh and it can blast off the starting block and reach 100 kmh in just three seconds. On top of that, the Spartan V, aptly named, if you asked us, has one mean looking, albeit headlight-less, mug.
Sure, you won’t be able to show this car off to your friends because the lack of just about every road-required feature makes this car illegal to the drive on the road. But take them to a nearby track and you can show them how this Spartan takes a back seat to absolutely no one.
