Trident prepares 320kW GT

2012-08-27 08:17
British sports car maker, Trident, will display its all-new Iceni Grand Tourer at Salon Privé 2012, to be held at West London’s Syon Park from September 5 to 7, 2012.

The Iceni’s outstanding performance and vital statistics are, the automaker said, thanks to its patented Torque Multiplication technology.

With a top speed of nearly 321km/h and a 0-96km/h sprint in just 3.7 seconds, the Iceni is built to order in Norfolk, England, and priced from £75 000 (about R985 000).


A mid-front-mounted 6.6-litre turbodiesel is used to capitalise on the Torque Multiplication technology and is capable of running on mineral diesel, bio diesel, palm oil and linseed oil. It delivers 320kW and a staggering 1292Nm at under 3250rpm, although power hungry drivers have an option to upgrade to a 492kW/ 1428Nm version.

At a constant 112km/h the specially tuned engine runs at just 980rpm, produces 952Nm, is capable of 3.4litres/100km and will keep going for over 3218km on one full tank of diesel, the automaker claims.

Trident Sports Cars managing director, Phillip Bevan, says:“We are very pleased to be at Salon Privé which this year is a great celebration of all things British and home grown talent - something we feel very strongly about at Trident. 

"It is also a place where sportscars and supercars of this calibre are sold, and we look forward to taking new orders for the Iceni at Syon Park this September.”
