Preview: Aspid GT-21 Invictus (BMW V8-Powered)

Spanish specialty carmaker Aspid Cars has dropped the first teaser images of its new GT-21 Invictus, a 2+2 seater sports car. This is Aspid’s second vehicle series after the hardcore Super Sports (SS), which kind of resembles a Lotus 7 on steroids.

Aspid’s latest creation is built around a lightweight spaceframe and makes use of aerospace grade aluminium, ultra-light high-strength steels, and composites materials for the body to keep its weight at a low 990kg (2,182 lbs) when dry.

The GT-21 Invictus is 700mm longer than the SS at 4,447mm (175 in.), while also measuring 1,883mm (74.1 in.) wide and just 1,226mm (48.3 in.) tall.

Whereas the SS utilizes a 398hp (402PS) 2.0-liter turbo’d four, the GT-21 Invictus employs a BMW-sourced 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 engine producing 450-horses. A dual-clutch transmission with F1-style shift paddles on the steering wheel transfers power to the rear wheels.

The Spaniards estimate that the 2+2 seater will be capable of reaching 100km/h (62mph) in less than three seconds and top out at 300km/h (186mph).

The company said production of the GT-21 Invictus will be limited to 250 units per year with pricing to be announced.
