Spania GTA´s design department, directed by Sento Pallardó, has strived to create a unique automobile that resembles no other car in any way. Thus, a preliminary design has evolved until the present-day, which has succeeded in combining sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity in a single concept. In other words, a very different style to that currently on the international automobile scene.
One of Spano's main distinguishing features lies in its lateral view, where doors fit perfectly into air intakes which, apart from performing an aerodynamic function, refrigerate elements such as oil coolers, power-assisted steering and brakes, among others. Its design is original and unprecedented, which is yet another distinguishing mark of concept. As in all true sportscars, the doors have not doorframes.
ENTERING THE COKPIT
Access to the interior is accomplished by pressing the GTA logotype, rendering it a more elegant design without traditional handles.
Its frontal view affords it a strong personality along with its two large lateral air intakes and its convex bonnet, completed with an aerodynamic streamlining zone to facilitate the air flow, thus providing it an athletic look.
At the rear, the design department has attempted to create the best way to channel the air flowing over the car. The resulting effect is a rear design with plenty of character, marked by the use of glass with its small openings that perform a refrigeration function for the engine. The wing fits perfectly into the design with under air channelling, for a better aerodynamic work, while the two air intakes and the twin exhaust system emphasize the vehicle's sport character. There is a rear diffusor to channel air and to improve the aerodynamic downforce.
The large glazed surface affords the vehicle a strong quality, another of its distinguishing features. The vehicle has a patented interior lighting and electronic shading system, and the degree of light required inside may be regulated. It,s completely novel sun visors are set into the glass and boast the same technology exclusive in the world.
Its seats, all leather, are another feature of its sport design and are perfectly held. They display the brand´s anagrams, thus affording the vehicle more exclusivity. The seats also have an electrical adjustment system with heating and refrigeration.
One of Spano´s innovations is that there is no central rear-view mirror; instead there is a rear camera that projects onto the LCD screen and is aptly located on the dashboard. It also has a wide-angle camera to facilitate parking manoeuvres which automatically connects after activating the rear gear. Interior lights also use LED technology.
CONNECTIONS AND HI-TECH
The dashboard has a large state-of-the-art 7” LCD screen with several functions such as navigation, radio, total connectivity, USB and Bluetooth for mobile phones.
The GTA Spano has a rear luggage compartment of 150 litters, not insignificant figure for a car of its features. There are also two glove compartments, one located in the central compartment and the other on the front passenger’s side. It is possible to refrigerate them and they also include a drinks holder. There are also incorporated practical compartments into both doors. The interior colour range and the total finishing varies according to the customer´s preferences.
