Tauro Sport Auto V8 Spider revealed image

Tauro Sport Auto has recently pulled the wraps off its latest creation, the V8 Spider, which is based on the Pontiac Solstice.

According to the guys at Tauro Sport Auto, the V8 Spider is coming with a bespoke bodywork which is borrowing some cues from the Alfa Romeo C8 Competizione and from the Fisker Karma. If the exterior design of the sports car is quite attractive, the interior is coming straight from General Motors and some notable exceptions are the Alcantara trim, the leather wrapped dashboard and the aluminum gear knob on models with a six-speed manual transmission.

The Tauro Sport Auto V8 Spider is powered by a 6.2 liter V8 engine, borrowed from General Motors, which is developing a total output of 434 horsepower and it has a peak torque of 586 Nm (432 lb-ft). Tauro Sport Auto is also offering some performance packages and the engine’s output can go up to 473 HP, to 523 HP and even to 641 HP. The guys at Tauro Sport Auto are saying that production of the V8 Spider will be limited to just 30 units and the sports car starting price will be set at around 100,000 euros (125,740 USD).
