Spanish company GTA Motor has announced that final testing of the GTA Concept Supercar has been completed. The official launch of the GTA is now expected towards the end of this month.

Is it fast you ask? You bet. With over 580kW (780hp) and 928Nm (678 lb-ft) of torque it’s damn quick. Think 0-100km/h in less than three seconds and a top speed of 350km/h (217mph).

This is all thanks to a mid-mounted V10 engine which channels power through a seven-speed paddle-shifted sequential gearbox.

Pulling the show up are 380mm carbon-ceramic ventilated discs with six-piston AP Racing calipers. These sit within a set of custom rims with 255/35 front and 335/35 rear rubber.

According to GTA only 99 of the titanium, kevlar, and carbon-fibre beasties will be created. Price? Well, if you have to ask…
