Salica Cars reveals specs for new GT supercar
Two engine options are available, either a 3.5L V6 developing 400hp (298kW) or a twin-turbo version of the same engine with just over 500hp (373kW). The more powerful version is coupled with a reduction in weight and uprated brake hardware from AP Racing. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a Graziano 6-speed H pattern, fully synchromesh transaxle gearbox with a torque rating of 560ft-lb (750Nm), and for those wishing to race their Salica GT, a 6 speed sequential 'dog' engagement gearbox is also available.
Combined with a steel and carbon-fiber spaceframe chassis weighing just 1,025kg, the turbocharged version of the car will accelerate from 0-60mph in just 3.2 seconds and reach an estimated top speed of 190mph.
The Salica GT is designed as a convertible with a removable hardtop roof. The one piece, lightweight roof can be detached from the car and stowed under the rear clam within seconds. The refitting of the roof takes a similar amount of time and both operations can be carried out by one person. Inside, the GT comes with a stereo, air-conditioner and full leather trim. Carbon-fiber seats are also available as an option.
