Spanish sports car manufacturer Aspid (formerly IFR Aspid) has revealed the first teaser image of its new flagship model, which will be shown in rendered form in the coming weeks.

The new model marks a departure from the firm’s 700kg, low-slung and open-wheeled body Aspid SuperSport, but will inherit the characteristic and unique elements of that car, according to the marque.

The flagship car will be considerably larger than the SuperSport, too, and will feature lightweight materials, possibly carbonfibre.

Included in the engine line-up will be a V8 petrol motor or Hybrid KERS system.

The firm is tight-lipped about the new model’s price, but judging by the 400bhp SuperSport’s £100k price tag, a substantial six figure sum is expected.

Just hope it is visually more appealing than their last car, which looked like the love child of a Caterham Seven and a Mercedes SLS.

 

 

 

It's all about the twisties........
