After 15 years of top automobile motorsport, five years ago GTA Motor decided to go one step forward and make director Domingo Ochoa´s dream come true; build a super sports car that combines all theautomobile technology with perfect, sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity.
So, Ochoa, with more that 30 year´s experience in the automobile sector, Ochoa set the basis to accomplish his project, a leading Spanish super sport car in an attempt to combine the select and reduced club of handicraft constructors.
The technological experience and the development of applied innovations, became the basic factor of this project, and contributed revolutionary technical solutions in the automobile sector. GTA intends to convert this technological transfer into a launching point for a new pioneeering automobile industry in Spain.
Designed by GTA Motor´s engineering director, Valencian-born Sento Pallardó, the GTA Spano boasts the most advanced technology, innovative aesthetics, studied aerodynamics and a good number of solutions for the future, all of wich are capable of competing with international prestigious brands in terms of image and performance.
As a sign of its exclusivity, only 99 models of this extraordinay super sport car will be built to order and several world patents have been obtained. Indeed it is a car that is the beginning of an industry wich leads to job creation and also to the transfer of the resulting technology to other sectors of society.
GTA Motor´s design department , directed by Sento Pallardó, has strived to create an unique automobile that does not resemble other cars in any way. In this way, a preliminary design has been evolving until the present-day, which has succeeded in combining sportsmanship, elegance and exclusivity in a singleconcept. In other words, a very different style to that wich currently exists in the international automobilescene.
One of Spano´s main distinguishing characteristics lies in its lateral view, where the doors fit perfectly into the air intakes, wich apart from performing an aerodynamic function, refrigerate elements such as oil coolers, power-assisted steering and brakes, among others. Its design is original, never seen to date, this being yet another distinguishing mark of Concept. As in all true sports cars, the doors have not doorframes.
Access to the interior is accomplished by pressing the GTA logotype, rendering it, a more elegant design without the traditional handles.
In its frontal view affords it with a strong personality along with its two large lateral air intakes nd its convex bonnet, completed with an aerodynamic streamlining zone to facilitate the air flow, providing it with an athletic look.
At the rear, the design departament has attempted to create the best way to channel the air that flows under the car.The resulting effect is a rear design with plenty of character, marked by the use of glass, wich has small openings that perform a refrigeration function for the engine. The wing fits perfectly into the design with under air channelling, while the two air intakes and the twin exhaust system emphasise the vehicle´s sport character. There is a rear barrel to channel air and to improve the aerodynamic load.
The design for the wing mirrors has been a framework with carbon fibre finished with a wing-like airm, built in aeronautical mechanised aluminium.
The large glazed surface, affords the vehicle a strong quality, which is another of its distinguishing traits. The vehicle has a patented system of interior lighting and liquid crystal shading and the degree if light required inside may be regulated.Its completely novel sun visors are set into the glass and boast the same technology.
The electrically operated windows have been made according to the lastest technology, in such a way that the tracks are maintenance free and work problem free at various temperature.
The wheels, in 19” at the front and 20” at the rear, are characterised by their angular shape. They have been designed specifically for this model. Their design is exclusive for this car with offers a continuousness effect, with the chassis. There is a flat exterior part that perfoms an aerodynamical function, offering greaterresistance and involving less weight.
The interior design has been achieved with high-quality materials such as leather and carbon fibre. There is ample space; indeed a person over 2 meters high can be comfortably seated. The panoramic glass roof enhances the sense of spaciousness and also improves luminosity inside.
The dashboard has been designed to transmit the car’s values; although it has sporting look, it is also elegant which gives the impression of luxury and comfort.
The prevalent feature of the instrument panel is an LCD screen, which can be personalised according to the customer´s requiremens and provides the driver with all the necessary information. It has all the buttons required to adjust the high front bodywork, the rear wing and also the glass roof opacity system.
The steering wheel is made out of carbon fibre and leather, another typical sporting feature of this vehicle. Ajoystick is located behind the steering wheel to operate lights, wipers and indicators.
Its Recaro seats, made totally of 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 which 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.
The dashboard has a large state-of-the-art 7” LCD screen with several functions such as navigation, radio with MP3 CD, an iPod port and Bluetooth for mobile phones.
GTA has two boot; a 100-litre front one and a 200-litre rear one; which are not inconsiderable for a vehicle of such characteristics. The front boot has a reverse opening system to make the task of loading luggageeasier.
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.
Spano also has practical compartments in both doors. The interior colour range varies according to the customer´s preferences.
Quality and elegance are the main characteristics of the GTA interior design which is also fully equipped.

GTA has developed a special engine for this car, and has opted for a V10, 8.3 litre engine placed in a longitudinal rear position. It has 780 horsepower and 920 Nm torque.
The GTA technicians have worked hard to enhance the compressor, so that GTA achieves amazing performances, at a top speed of over 350 km/h with acceleration from 0 to 100 Km/h in under threee seconds. These figures place it directly among the five fastest cars commercialized in the world. The precision of the engine´s control unit helps the engine to offer and increase in power progressively under all circumstances.
Spano also has an electronic power control system, provided according to customer´s wishes, which regulates power from a minimum of 450 cv to the maximum power.
The gearbox is available in three options, all of which have seven gears: automatically sequential or automatically sequential with a paddle shift steering wheel or manual in H.
Chassis and dynamic performance
The chassis has been one of aspects on wich special emphasis has been places while constructing Spano. The most state-of-the-art technologies have been applied to the automobile world, thus making Spano one of the few cars in the world with aeronautical components, which makes it a reference in the automobile scene.
The chassis has been built completely out of carbon fibre, titanium and Kevlar, whose a rigidity is four times greater than that of many of the presently commercialized super cars, which offers the best safety level. With this technology, the weight of the monocasc is only 56 kg, while the total weigh is 1350 kg, with all the liquids and the most convenient equipment on board.
Thanks to its especial chassis outline and the materials used, GTA has a large traction capacity and is easy to drive, which is unlike what one might think of a car whose power is close to 800 hp. In this case, it offers a turn ratio of 10,8 meters to assist driving which makes very impressive manoeuvrability.
To bring this huge potential to a standstill, GTA´s braking system includes 380 mm diameter carbon ceramic ventilated disc brakes and 6 piston callipers supllied by AP Racing, with pneumatic assistance and ABS. GTA Spano also has a sophisticated traction control system.
The tyres are manufactured exclusively for this car by Pirelli: 255/35 on a 19” front wheel and 335/30 on a 20” rear wheel .
Spano also offers self-adjusting shock absorbers which are capable of raising the car by up to 8 cm to avoid potholes and regular speed bumps on roads, and to facilitate access to garages. It also has twin trapezium suspension, which enables all kinds of adjustments.
GTA has come to distribuition agreements with the most important companies in the world automobile scene. GTA has previous agreements in countries such as China, United Arab Emirates, USA, Russia, Germany, Italy, Hong Kong and New Zealand. Nowadays, GTA Motor continues negotiating with other countries to increase and consolidate its distribution chain.
GTA´s maintenance and after-sales service exclusivity are defined by firms with ample experience wich fulfil all the requirements expected by GTA. In short it has sought the maximum quality in all the brand´s actions with no discrimination per geographical area.
GTA Motor has a number of partners and coworkers which participate in the undertaking of its project, which directly apply their products and technologies, or participate by directly contributing financially.
These partners enjoy a number of exceptional conditions to diffuse their participation in the project, as well as a good number of clear advantages when it comes to negotiating their conditions as suppliers for the project. GTA has contracts with different Spanish, American and Italian companies, which provide GTA with their know-how and the use of their patents. This relationship enables increased technological knowledge of all the company’s components, and the collaborating parties could also benefit from this collaboration relationship with GTA Motor.
