Trident Iceni. World's fastest diesel sports car?

By Faiming_low on 03 May 2014

Attached Image Claimed to be 'the world's fastest and most fuel efficient diesel sports car', the Trident Iceni is styled like some old school British sports car. Although it does not look like a work of art to us, we could not care less as this monster packs a 6.6-litre V8 turbo diesel. Producing 395bhp and an alarming 950Nm of torque, it is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Iceni is said to hit 100km/h in 3.7 seconds and has a maximum speed of more than 300km/h. Amazingly, it claims to be able to travel 3,200km on one tank. No. It is not a typo error if that is what you are wondering... 
 
Attached Image Not good enough? You can opt for the Performance Pack which gives you 430bhp and an even more alarming 1388Nm of torque. Still worried your neighbour's supercar might be able to keep up with you? Fret not. You can tick the box for the Track Pack which gives you 660bhp and 1423Nm of torque. Yup, 1423Nm of twisting force. That is more than twice of what a Mclaren 650S can muster!
 
Attached Image Priced at £96,000 (S$202,785), Trident says there is already a pre-launch waiting list and it is limited in numbers. So... anyone keen to buy one and let us test its 3,200km range?

6.6 V8 turbo diesel... Sounds like a GM Duramax unit. Stock figures for it seemed somewhat identical as well, ~390+hp/~1000+Nm.

Sounds like a April Fool Joke come late. To hit that kind of range, it would need to tow a trailer of diesel along. 

 

Looking at the heritage of this company, I would take all the claims with a huge pinch of salt.
