- NEW CAR NEWS – TRIDENT ICENI
BRITISH sports car brand Trident is heralding what it says is the world’s fastest and most fuel efficient diesel sports car.
Called the Iceni, the car is claimed to have a top speed in excess of 190mph and the ability to run for 2000 miles on a single tank of mineral or bio-diesel.
It uses something called torque multiplication technology to achieve the combination of speed, power and fuel efficiency.
Using this technology in a road car is said to increase fuel efficiency by up to 20 per cent.
All three models boast clean curves plus an unusual sculpted rear and can store a minimum of two suitcases, as well as two holdalls.
There are also 39 bespoke manufactured components, including independent control of each car seat, though every Iceni can be built to specific customer spec.
Trident co-founder Daniel Monaghan 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.”
Prices start from £96,000, though there is limited availability and a pre-launch waiting list.
