Unveiled: Aspid GT-21 Invictus Gives Menacing a New Meaning
Relatively new Spanish automaker, Aspid, has just made a huge splash in the ever-changing tides that are the supercar pool. After a few months of teasing, the GT-21 makes its official debut with some stunning new design cues. Let's find out if it's more than a pretty face.Up front, the new model takes some sharp styling lines and wrap them around lightly fendered front tires. The grille and front splitter jut out into the open giving the front end a hammerhead shark-like look. The GT-21 also gets some high-tech LED lighting that forms seamlessly into the front design.
This shark gets it's power from a BMW sourced 4.4L V8, good for 450hp, a huge bump from the 2.0L 4-cylinder engine Aspid had originally planned to use. From a standstill, the Invictus can get to sixty in under three seconds and continues on to a top speed of 189 mph. The impressive 0-60 time is thanks in part to its weight of only 2,182 pounds due to composite body panels and a space frame ultralight chassis.
So far, Aspid has yet to tell us how many of our children we will have to give up in order to own such an exquisite ride, but they do say that they are shooting for a production date of 2014.
