Trident is a British company that came with a new supercar that has a V8 engine and develops 550HP. Fuel consumption is very low, only 4,1liters/100km!
Obviously, the 4,1l/100km is a marketing strategy, the car consumes that low only at a constant speed of 112 km/h, but really, having a 550HP car you’ll pass that speed for sure!
The maximum power of Trident Iceni is obtained at 3800 rpm and it accelerates from 0 to 96 km/h in only 3,7 seconds. The top speed is pretty high too – 320 km/h, so, again, don’t tell me you will keep this beast under 112 km/h! The transmission is assured by a gear box in 8 steps. Trident Iceni will be soon commercialized so prepare to spend 75,000 pounds to get a beast like this!
