Following the teaser in May, we can now show you the first official images of the Aspid GT-21 Invictus. The sports car released by Aspid Cars features a distinctive semi open wheel look at the front of the car and builds on lightweight technologies developed for the Aspid Super Sport. Both models will enter production within two years.
The Aspid GT-21 Invictus is bigger and has more interior space compared to the Aspid Super Sport, increasing the level of comfort for the driver and passengers. It is also more powerful and more technologically advanced. The GT-21 uses the same chassis design that weighs a mere 80kg in the Super Sport. The GT-21 Invictus styling has been undertaken by IFR Automotive, which is also responsible of the design and engineering of the Aspid Super Sport which preceded it.
The Spanish sports car features a BMW V8 engine capable of delivering 450 horsepower while being linked to a dual-clutch transmission with F1-style shift paddles on the steering wheel. The power is converted to the rear wheels. It will also have a new generation of sports car hybridization, but it is unclear what type of hybrid system they are planning to use.
The Aspid GT-21 Invictus will offer the same acceleration as the Super Sport, reaching 100km/h in less than three seconds, but with a higher maximum speed exceeding 300km/h and a cornering ability in terms of g forces. The dimensions are 4.447mm long, 1.883mm wide and a height of 1.226mm. The total dryweight is less than 990kg.
The Invictus is aimed squarely at the premium sports car market and production will be limited to 250 a year to retain its exclusivity. Each car will be custom made and hand built in its own production bay. There is no production line as such. Each client can choose more than 100 different options and order their car from a group of twenty dealers across Europe, which still need to be appointed.
