Aspid, the company of the former Mitsubishi and Seat developer Ignacio Fernandez Rodriguez, revealed last month the production version of the GT-21 Invictus. With a Batman-esque look, the sports car is powered by BMW’s S65 4.0 liter V8 engine that develops 450 horsepower. The package provides a power to weight ratio of 2.2 kgs per hp.
All that power is sent to the wheels via the exceptional 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, or through an optional six-speed manual. In its first iteration, Aspid GT-21 Invictus was powered by a supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder.
Aspid says the GT-21 Invictus runs to 60 mph from a standstill in under three seconds while achieving a top speed of 189 mph. To 124 mph, the car needs only 10.6 seconds. The suspension can serve up 1.6 g on the skidpad.
All this performance is achieved primarily due to the amazing weight saving techniques, such as the use of composite body panels and a spaceframe chassis. But safety has not been compromised and the GT-21 Invictus comes equipped with adaptive airbags, stability control and anti-lock brakes, among many others.
Inside, there’s a 2+2 seating configuration.
The company will only produce up to 250 vehicles per year.
