‘New British supercar is worlds fastest diesel’ on Yahoo Cars. New British firm Trident has unveiled three new supercars promising an incredible combination of performance and economy. The Iceni GT comes in coupe form, as well as the Iceni Magna fastback and the Iceni Venturer estate, all of which are powered by a vast 6.6-litre V8 diesel engine delivering 395bhp and 700lb.ft of torque. Trident says this is enough to power the Iceni from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and to a top speed of over 190mph. Even more remarkably Trident claim that the Iceni GT can travel up to 2,000 miles on a single tank of fuel, and that the strength of the diesel engine means it can run on conventional fuel as well as used cooking oil, virgin rapeseed, linseed, palm, soya bean oil, kerosene and paraffin.
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 worlds most fuel-efficient diesel sports cars to market. The Trident team claims the impressive efficiency is down to torque-multiplication technology, using the torque of the engine to provide easy acceleration.
All models of the Iceni come with features such as huge 400mm brakes, a six-speed automatic transmission, air conditioning and electric seats, while the option packs include a track pack with maximum power and a lux pack with a fitted luggage set and a high specification audio system.
