The GTA Spano first broke cover at the Geneva Motor Show only a few short years ago, followed by an update in 2013 that saw a substantial power increase. This year, Spania GTA will once again unveil an updated version of its exclusive supercar at the 85th Annual Geneva Motor Show, with several revisions that make the vehicle even more extreme than before.
For those of you who didn’t know, the GTA Spano is a Spanish-built supercar hailing from the workshop of GTA Motor in Valencia, a sister company to GTA Motor Competicion. The cars are hand-built, devastatingly fast, and quite rare. The GTA Spano has even been featured in movies and video games, such as Need For Speed and DriveClub.
This year, the GTA Spano returns to Geneva sporting a redesigned look and a more powerful Viper-derived engine.

When it comes to driving some of the coolest and most unique cars on the planet, video games are as close as most of us are going to get. This has led a lot of game makers to “debut” cars in games so that the world at large can have a chance to check them out in an environment that is familiar to them. This has been going on for years with games like Forza Motorsports 5 debuting the McLaren P1 and Forza Horizon 2 coming to market with the new Lamborghini Huracán. Now Spania has piped up and said that the new Playstation 4 game, DriveClub, will come with the GTA Spano.
If you are a fan of the Spanish car company that creates the GTA Spano, DriveClub may be your only chance to ever even see one as production was limited to only 99 examples of this supercar. With an 8.3-liter, V-10 engine that makes 900 horsepower, we expect this to be one of the fastest cars in the whole game. The car will hit 60 mph from a stop in less than three seconds and it has a top speed of 230 mph. Yeah, it is a really quick machine.
DriveClub is next in what appears to a large wave of racing games that focus on the love of cars and the social side of car ownership. DriveClub sees racers team up in large car clubs to race, compete and otherwise enjoy bombing around a beautiful landscape. The game is not set up to have players blast through the open countryside, though; if that is more of what you are after, you might want to wait for the upcoming Ubisoft game The Crew.
You can pick up your copy of the new game on October 7, 2014 here in the States. Note, it is only available for the Playstation 4 gaming console. Sorry Xbox and PC fans.

A month after it was announced that the Spanish supercar was also making an appearance at the new Need for Speed movie, the Spano is making it 2 out of 2 for the Need for Speed franchise. It’s a great way for the Spano to get some much-needed publicity after being largely in the shadows of more popular competitors. But one thing we do know is that the Spano is all sorts of ridiculous and it deserves its turn in the spotlight.
Being in the new Need for Speed game accomplishes that. It’s not so much the fact that the franchise is one of the most popular and successful video games in history, having sold 150 million copies in its long and storied existence, but it’s also how NFS has managed to successfully cross over into other media platforms, like the NFS movie that’s scheduled to hit theaters this week. And guess what; the Spano is one of the main supercars featured in the film.
The Spanish sports car will be joined by other cars in the “Need for Speed Rivals, Movie Cars Pack,” and will be available in a digital format for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Video and more on the GTA Spano after the jump
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 was the first Spanish sportscar, and it turned out to be more successful than everyone expected. Of course that just means that GTA would be crazy not to crank out a few more versions of this Don Juan. So during the latest testings done at the Valencian Community Ricardo Tormo Circuit test unit, GTA discussed two future versions for the Spano sports car: a Spyder and a track-focused R version. There aren’t any details on either of these future models, but we expect them to deliver the same performance numbers as the coupe version and also only be offered in limited numbers.
As a reminder, the GTA Spano is powered by a V10 engine which is longitudinally positioned at the rear and delivers 780 HP and a torque of 920 NM. The car sprints from 0 to 60 mph in under 3 seconds and can hit a top speed of 207 mph. It is built on a chassis created by combining Kevlar, carbon fiber, and titanium, and sits on a set of wheels manufactured exclusively for this car.
GTA Motor has revealed some new images of their first supercar, the GTA Spano. The Spano is powered by a mid-mounted V10 engine rated at 780 HP. It makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3 seconds while top speed goes up to 217 mph. The supercar will feature a combination Kevlar, carbon fiber, and titanium chassis. It will also feature 380-mm-diameter carbon ceramic ventilated disc brake system and 6 piston calipers supplied by AP Racing. The GTA Spano will finish off with a cool, glass panoramic roof, front 19" wheels, and 20" rear wheels.
The supercar will be limited to only 99 units which means there will be at least 99 lucky people that can bet on themselves if they ever come head to head with a Lamborghini Murcielago or a Ferrari 458. The status of "supercar" is definitely deserved by the GTA Spano. Way to go, Spain! Or should we say, "Bien hecho, España!"
After being displayed at the Top Marques Monaco, theGTA Spano has been spotted cruising the streets of Madrid in all of its Spanish glory. Of course, this supercar wasn’t being driven by the owner (considering the GTA Spano won’t go on sale until the early summer), but the Director of GTA Motor, Dominic Ochoa taking the Spano for a little drive.
