In a country like India where diesel is a very good word,
the news from Trident, a UK based car manufacturer, is definitely going to be
music to a lot of ears. To add to that music is the fact that the car has the
ability to run for a whopping 3219km on a single tank of mineral or bio-diesel!
Trident, the British sports car brand, has announced the
global availability of its flagship Iceni sports car, the world’s fastest and most
fuel efficient diesel sports car.
The car has a 6.6 litre Turbo Diesel V8 engine
that is mated to a 6 speed fully automatic gear box. The engine delivers 395bhp
of power with 949Nm of torque. The manufacturer is giving a series of fine features for
a customer paying more. For example, if he opts for a performance pack worth £11,300
(Rs 11.45 lakh approx.) then the car’s engine is turned increasing the
performance of the engine to 430bhp of power with 1288Nm of torque!
With a top speed in excess of over 190mph (306kmph
approx.) and the ability to run for 2000 miles (3219km approx.) on a single
tank of mineral or bio-diesel, the Iceni uses torque multiplication technology
to achieve this unique combination of speed, power and fuel efficiency, says a
Two new models to the Iceni range are also unveiled recently,
the Iceni Magna (fastback) & Iceni Venturer (estate). All three models
boast the same impressive spec, each with its own distinctive design. In
addition, the cars can store a minimum of two suitcases, as well as two
holdalls, making a 2000-mile road trip a reality.
Phil Bevan, designer & founder of Trident said, “The
Trident cars deliver incredible speed and performance combined with outstanding
fuel efficiency, achieved through our unique torque multiplication technology.”
It is widely believed that horsepower delivers power,
speed and fuel efficiency, but it is in fact torque that matters. Using this
technology in a road car increases fuel efficiency by up to 20pc. Trident has
patented a unique way of utilising torque multiplication to improve performance
and efficiency, which has been incorporated into all their sports cars.
The British designed Trident sports cars boast a
distinctive look, with clean curves and the unusual sculpted rear. The cars
also incorporate over 39 bespoke, designed and manufactured components,
including independent control of each car seat and oculight roof. In addition, every Iceni can be built to
specific customer spec, ensuring a truly unique driving experience.
Daniel Monaghan, co-founder of Trident said, “We have
worked extremely hard to reach this point and the whole Trident team is thrilled to be
bringing the world’s most fuel-efficient diesel sports cars to market.”
The three Iceni sports cars are available to buy globally
with prices starting from £96,000 (Rs 97.22 lakh). With limited availability
and a pre-launch waiting list, the three models are already in high demand
across the globe.
