Innotech’s £117,000 track car, the Aspiron, has had its world public debut at the Goodwood Festival of speed.
The car is offered with a range of Corvette-derived V8 engines, developing between 500-800hp, and a six-speed manual gearbox – the same Ricardo unit used in both the Ford GT and the Hennessey Venom GT. “It’s a proven gearbox,” says Innotech owner Zdenek Mrkvica. “It can take the power with no problem, it’s durable.”
A kerbweight of between 760-860kg, depending on specification, is aimed at aiding durability and performance. An aluminium spaceframe underpins the car, while inside lightweight Tillet carbon fibre racing seats, with a carbon fibre dashboard containing a single digital display, form the cabin.
Styling wise, there are plenty of nods to the Caparo T1, though Mrkvica says the brand has always been an inspiration for him. “When I first saw the Caparo T1 I was in Vegas and I was very impressed with what I saw, the look and the concept. I thought that would be the way to go for us on our next project.”
