Italian coachbuilder Aznom reached out to the Spada design team to create a new version of a previously released Codatronca, and a few months back, the Codatronca Monza was released. But the specs had been left out… until now.
Spada is design team made up of father and son Ercole and Paolo Spada, and are known for their work with Zagato. Their latest creation, first revealed at the Top Marques Monaco, boasts the 7.0-liter twin-supercharged V8 as its predecessor. In just three seconds the car hits 62-mph, and can reach top speeds of 208-mph. The difference here is that the 710-hp engine comes packaged in a car with no roof.
But the rest of the car has some stand out features as well. The steering wheel mimics that of the F1, and you can sit behind it courtesy of the Sabelt bucket seats. Apart from the full data acquisition system, there isn’t much else to see in the cockpit, as it has been otherwise stripped.
Stopping power is provided by Brembo and uses the same ABS system as the FIA GT3 series. Housing the breaks is a set of Ultraleggera wheels that are covered by Pirelli PZero Corsa tires.
Aznom’s intentions for the car was for it to strictly be a showpiece, but the Spada team notes that they are taking orders, with customizations for practical use and comfort.
Hit the jump for the high-res gallery and the press release.
Spada Codatronca Monza:
SPADA CODATRONCA MONZA
After the last track tests to find the right set-up of May and June, Spada Codatronca Monza is ready to show herself to press
11 July 2011 – The one off designed by Paolo, Ercole Spada and Domiziano Boschi of Spadaconcept, and built by Spadavetturesport was requested by Aznom, a well known company of Monza specialized in the world of luxury and corporate partner of Spadavetturesport. Aznom (that realized the interior design of the car) wanted a special car dedicated to the Monza circuit for show it in all the luxury events and to strengthen the connection between the world of car design and luxury.
The one off Codatronca Monza is based on the line of the 2008 Codatronca coupe but has much more extreme characteristics: its design and racing interiors bring back to memory the spyders of the ?60. A extreme car as extreme and technical are the Carbon business collection products of Aznom for sportcar lovers.
Aznom chose Monza for its strong attachment with the city that houses its historic venue and the famous track Autodromo Nazionale Monza, recently main stage of the Cars 2 presentation. In that occasion Codatronca was chosen as VipCar for its uniqueness. Codatronca Monza will be only a one off, but Spadaconcept will produce a spyder (barchetta) version of the Codatronca on demand. Codatronca Monza has a tubular chassis made of aluminium that was coated with a light carbon fiber and composite materials body. The engine was developed by Italtecnica starting from a V8 7 liter engine hardly modified. Now we can find 2 rotrex centrifugal superchargers that deliver the incredible power of 720 CV with over 90 kgm of torque. The car is able to reach the 100 km/h speed in only 3 seconds (in first gear) thanks to the 6 speed transmission with a very short gear ratio, and to reach the impressive top speed of 335 km/h.
The weight of the car is only of 1.180 kg, thanks to the racing interiors requested by Aznom with Sabelt seat and belts, and the Aim steering wheel that integrates the instrumentations with data acquisition (can, GPS). The on board camera Aim Smartycam records HD videos with the overlay of the telemetry and data captured by the steering wheel. The technical package is completed with the performance Pirelli PZero Corsa mounted on lightweight Oz Ultra-leggera wheels, and Brembo brakes, used for the cars of the FIA GT3 racing with abs and a fully adjustable suspension system always derived from FIA GT3.
The Monza Codatronca will inspire a new stock model for street use for all the spyder lovers.
The Barchetta Codatronca and the Codatronca Monza are available on demand from Spadaconcept Srl and Aznom Srl
