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 single concept. In other words, a very different style to that wich currently exists in the international automobile scene.
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 greater resistance and involving less weight.
The interior design has been one of the best kept secrets of the project. High quality materials such as leather and carbon fibre, aluminium and titanium have been used. Ample space is another of its characteristics and a person over 2 meters in height can be seated without problems.
The design of the dashboard feigns the lateral part of the car, and provides the interior wich much character. The instrument panel is distinguished by an LCD screen, wich can be personalised according to the customer´s
requiremens and provides all the necessary information. The steering wheel is made out of carbon sportsmanship of this vehicle. A joystick is located behind the steering wheel to operate elements such as lights wipers and
One of Spano´s innovations is that it has no central rear-view mirror, rather a rear camera that projects on to an LCD screen which is perfectly located on the dashboard. It also has a large angular camera to facilitate parking manoeuvres. This camera automatically connects after locking the rear gear. The interior lights also use LED technology.
The GTA has two boots, one 100 litre one at the front and one 200 litre one at the rear, wich are certainly not out of place for an automobile of such characteristics. The front boot has a reverse opening system to make the
task of entering luggage easier.
There are also two glove compartments, one located on the co-driver´s side and the other smaller one in the centre compartment. It also has practical compartments in both doors.
The interior colours range varies according to the customer´s preferences.
Quality and elegance are the main characteristics of the GTA interior design

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 Nw torque. As an extra option, the Concept is also available in a Bioethanol version, wich increases the power to 840 hp.
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 commercialised in the world. The precision of the engine´s control unit helps the engine to offer and increase in power progresively 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 wich have seven gears: automatically sequential or automatically sequential with a paddle shift steering wheel or manual in H.
