British car-maker Trident has revealed an all-new supercar, the Trident Iceni , named world’s fastest diesel sportscar.
The Trident Iceni powered by 6.6-liter turbo diesel V8 producing 395 hp and 700 lb-ft of torque, reaching a top speed of over 190 mph, and from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
The Trident diesel sportscar is priced at £96,000.
The Trident Iceni represents the culmination of a dream to produce a Grand Tourer with unique features and innovations.
Dedication, enthusiasm and belief have driven Norfolk based Trident to pursue its Torque Multiplication innovation, allowing compatibility with the new Euro 6 emissions legislation, due in 2014 (for CO2 and NOx) as well as investigate a greener engine whilst maintaining a performance-driven philosophy.
To maximise the potential of Torque Multiplication, the Trident Iceni has a mid front mounted 6.6litre turbo diesel engine, complete with common rail, direct injection, 4 valves per cylinder and a variable vane turbo.
The basic engine (using our own control module – ECU) at standard specification produces 397bhp and 700lbs/ft of torque. Figures of 430bhp with 950lbs/ft of torque and 660bhp with 1050lbs/ft are attained with performance package upgrades.
