The GTA Spano Will Make its Silver-Screen Debut in "Need For Speed"
In case you haven’t seen the trailers and ads that are scattered across TV, internet and movies screens nationwide, the "Need for Speed" movie is coming. The new car-packed film from DreamWorks Pictures is loaded full of some of the hottest metal to hit the silver screen in years. Names like Bugatti, McLaren and Koeingsegg
are all present and accounted for, but there is another name in the movie you may not have heard of.
Meet the GTA Spano. This slab of yellow awesomeness is made by a small Spanish company called Spania GTA.
With 925 horsepower and a top speed well over 200 mph, the GTA Spano has the performance to match its motorized co-stars in the upcoming film. Thanks to a limited run of less than 100 cars, this movie is likely the only chance most will have to see a Spano in motion.
I have my reservations regarding the quality of the Need for Speed movie but one thing is certain; DreamWorks has thrown some of the best nameplates into the mix for the true enthusiast.

The GTA Spano is powered by an 8.3-liter V10 that is fed by pair a pair of turbochargers. The final result is 925 horsepower and 950 pounds of twist. All that power is enough to drag the ultra-light Spano to a top speed of 230 mph. The car itself is made of carbon fiber, titanium and Kevlar to keep weight down. Thanks to that low weight, acceleration is also brutal, as 0-to-60 blows by in less than 3 seconds.
The new Need for Speed movie, along with the GTA Spano, hits theater screens on March 14, 2014.
