It’s a sequential shift, attached to a six-speed Cima ’box with a clutch (there’s a semi-automatic paddleshift on offer, too).
by EVO (May, 2009)
The thrust in the back in full-bore mode is insane, and keeps coming from 1500 revs all the way to the 6000rpm redline.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

Just a word of warning: if you take a passenger they had better be a close friend as rubbing legs is a standard part of the Tramontana experience.
by EVO (May, 2009)
Add the intoxicating note of the engine, steering so direct it feels like an extension of your limbs and every piece of racing tech that could reasonably cross over and you have a recipe for something quite extraordinary.
by EVO (May, 2009)
Then the next gear brings a similarly insane surge of acceleration that’s just as savage, just as ferocious, while the turbos whistling away inches from your ears give the whole car an aura of brutality.
by EVO (May, 2009)

Performance

The top speed is electronically limited to 201mph.
by EVO (May, 2009)
The factory crew have recorded 0-62mph in 3.6sec and 125mph in 10.15.
by EVO (May, 2009)
With 250kg of downforce there’s more grip than anyone could reasonably break on a public road.
by EVO (May, 2009)

Handling

The cornering speeds belong in high-end motorsportJosep Rubau never wanted to build a sports car for everyone, he didn’t want just another generic supercar project with a smattering of Ferrari at the front and Lambo at the rear.
by EVO (May, 2009)
I would, however, lose the show-orientated steering wheel and take the plain round one, as grabbing fresh air mid-corner could be seriously uncool… Pulling the canopy shut with a dull thud, a firm shove on the lever through a central point of resistance and we’re away, accompanied by the chirrup of the turbos.
by EVO (May, 2009)

Engine

They run 1.4 bar of boost and apart from the noise and the low-down torque they’re inconspicuous, but then we haven’t engaged the full works yet.
by EVO (May, 2009)

Transmission

So it keeps the same 720bhp headline figure as the ‘standard’ Tramontana but with fewer revs – peak power comes at just 5000rpm as the Spaniard likes low- end torque.
