The organising committee for Monaco’s very own motor show chose a newcomer to the scene, the GTA Spano, as its official image for promoting the event and the new Spanish marque was placed centre-stage at the Grimaldi Forum as the event kicked off this morning.

Today was the GTA Spano’s first appearance at an international show and the GTA team made the most of the occasion by updating the Spano’s interior with an abundance of leather and carbon fibre.

Featuring a longitudinally mounted V10 engine producing 769 bhp, the GTA Spano is claimed to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 Km/h) in under 3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 218 mph (350 km/h).

Top Marques Monaco, which celebrates its seventh running this year, will be open until 18th April exhibiting more than 100 cars from 60 different brands.
