(from GTA Press
Release) GTA Spano “A date with history”
“There was a time
without time, where the moon shone high in the sky. One night,
absent-mindedly, she approached the Earth and got caught in the
branches of a tree.
From the Darkness, a wolf appeared, projecting its Majestic shadow
on to the hill. Howls and moonlight were witnesses of their
relationship. But all stories come to an end, and the wolf returned
to the wood while the Moon climbed back up into the sky”.
As legend has it on this magical night, the wolf caught the shining
of the moon in its eyes, and the moon stole the wolf´s shadow to be
dressed at night. Since that time, the wolf howls at the Moon for it
to return his shadow.”
Following the example of the large automobile industry companies, an
animal figure was chosen as the GTA symbol, in this case the wolf
being a symbol of light which represents the qualities of strength
and courage. Besides, this animal happens to be the symbol of the
coat of arms of the founder's and company owner´s surname, Domingo
Ochoa. Of aquitano origin, the surname Ochoa comes from Otxoa, and
from the word Otsoa, meaning wolf. The logotype also depicts a red
and white chequered flag, these being the distinguishing marks of
GTA Motor with more than 15 years´ motorsport competition behind it.
With the Spano´s construction, GTA Motor intented to go down in
history in Spain and around the world, by following with the legend
of sports cars manufactured by other Spanish mythical makes.
Nowadays they are considered masterpieces, and are very much
appreciated by collectors and at times, are of an incalculable
value. Spano was born as the fastest and most powerful automobile
ever built in Spain for commercial purposes. In short, it is the car
that will mark an era.

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 the automobile 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 single concept. In other words, a very
different style to that wich currently exists in the international
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
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
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 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. A joystick 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
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 luggage easier.
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.

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
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.
