IFR Automotive – based in Spain – came to London for the 2008 British Motor Show where they were given a chance to display and debut their new Aspid sportscar. We have never heard of this company and because of that we have not gotten a chance to see many of their cars. However, we are pleased with the Aspid and have the reason to believe that they have good taste.
The Aspid is lightweight and is pure luxury and class. Underneath the hood is a supercharged 4-cylinder 2.0 liter that can push out 400 bhp. It utilizes a curb weight of 1,543 pounds and according to their reports it can hit 62 mph in only 2.8 seconds.
The Aspid sits on an aluminum extrusion composite paneled chassis weighing just 175 lbs., and all of its suspension components are aluminum as well. IFR also reduced the complexity of the car’s electrical system, deleting processors and wires wherever it could.
Drivers will find touch screens in the interior of the car that relay all essential info and allow extreme customization of the car’s mechanicals. You can change the rev limit, valve timing, overall power output, brake balance, ride height and a whole lot more all from the comfort of the driver’s seat.
