Niche Australian car maker Saprtan has launched this Ducati V-Twin-powered lightweight track special.
The two-seater Spartan V is claimed by the company to be a superbike with four wheels offering Ariel Atom V8-rivalling performance; it uses a 168bhp 1198cc Ducati V-Twin engine mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox to help propel it from 0-60mph in less than 3.0sec. Its top speed is a claimed 173mph.
Its tubular spaceframe chassis and carbonfibre bodywork help contribute to an overall claimed weight of less than 300kg. It has no roof, no doors and a speedster-style windscreen.
Just 300 units of the car will be made, each costing $90,000 AUD (£75,000).
