The 2015 GTA Spano, also known as the 2015 Spania GTA Spano, is an updated version of the GTA Spano supercar built by Spanish supercar maker Spania GTA.

Description

The 2015 GTA Spano debuted at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It is a visually and mechanically refreshed version of the 2010 Spano.

The 2015 Spano uses butterfly doors which are opened by pressing the Spania GTA logo that is located on each door, just between the window and engine. The doors lack door frames.

The front of the car features two large lateral air intakes and a convex bonnet, complete with an aerodynamics streamlining zone to help the flow of air. The rear of the car uses glass with small openings that refrigerate air for the engine. The active rear wing uses under air channeling, fitting into the newly revised rear, while two air intakes and a twin exhaust system emphasize the Spano's supercar character. At the rear is a rear barrel to channel air flow and improve aerodynamic performance.

The car is powered by a 8.0L (7,990 cc) twin-turbocharged, intercooled V10 based on that of the Dodge Viper. The car produces 912 hp (680 kW) and 900 ft·lb (1220 N·m). The car uses a seven-speed CIMA-developed sequential automatic transmission with paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

The 2015 Spano is claimed to accelerate from standstill to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed in excess of 230 mph (370 km/h).

Summary

2015 Spano stats (S) (2)

The 2015 GTA Spano was added in the Rio de Janeiro Update as a VIP-exclusive car, unlockable at VIP Level 15, the highest possible VIP level.

The 2015 Spano appears as a mid Class S car with the following rank statistics:

  • Starting rank: 1544
  • MAX rank: 1681
  • MAX+PRO rank: 1770
  • Tuning Kit bonus: +32
  • Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 226

Performance

The 2015 GTA Spano acts as a Class S, Elite Car version of the Lotus Exige S Coupe, with a high rate of acceleration due to using a high nitro stat. Nitro efficiency has been improved from the 2010 Spano, with 6/12/16.

On a different note, though, the 2015 Spano now has a wider drifting radius, as well as slightly worse handling. This makes the 2015 Spano an impractical choice for tracks like Venice, Sector 8, and Patagonia. Inherited from the base GTA Spano is a speed multiplier of 97.14%.

Price

As of the 2019 Spring Update, the 2015 GTA Spano is priced at A8Credits 2,026,000 for maxing out and A8Credits 674,400 for Pro Kits. The 2015 Spano requires 18 of each Class S Part, 32 V12 Engines, 36 Mid-Techs, and 24 Advanced Techs.

To obtain the 2015 Spano, a minimum of 40 Vault of Tokens / Master Credit Pack purchases must be made, a total of US$3,892.84 - 4,000 for an equivalent price of A8Credits 120,000,000 or A8Tokens 600,000. Its debut update required an additional A8Tokens 2,400 to be paid even after reaching VIP Level 15 but has since been phased out.

This huge paywall, coupled with the Elite Car status and very high upgrade costs, makes the 2015 GTA Spano the most expensive car in the game. Due to the extremely absurd high cost and a very low "bang for your buck" level, it is NEVER VIABLE to go through the VIP levels to get this car.

Usage

Overall, the 2015 GTA Spano remains nothing more than a collector's item and a showcase of its owner's wealth as, practically, every other high-end Class A/S car is significantly less expensive in comparison to purchase and upgrade while performing similarly or even better. Even the Mosler GT3, McLaren 675LT, Jaguar XJ220S, and Aston Martin One-77 perform similarly or even slightly better yet are still much cheaper (even if the One-77 either costs A8Tokens 13,000 or must be assembled with 18 Legendary Blueprints).

Given the high number of V12 Engine cards this car requires (x52)(contrary to the fact that it actually uses a V10 engine), there are much better alternatives like the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid (x12), Lamborghini Aventador SV (x24); the SV also behaves much like the Spano albeit with more efficient nitro and a much higher rank), Pagani Huayra BC (x28), Aston Martin Vulcan (x32), and Ferrari Enzo Ferrari/Apollo Intensa Emozione (x48).

Even the TRION NEMESIS is a better choice, as it can be obtained for A8Credits 3,275,000 - 4,000,000 (worth one Master Credit Pack and an extra A8Credits 275,000 - 1,000,000) and McLaren P1™ GTR is priced at A8Tokens 13,500(worth one Vault of Tokens), respectively; although the NEMESIS requires 60 Forced-Induction V8 cards and is still the most expensive Credits-purchasable car but has been superseded by the likes of the Vulcan, McLaren MP4-31, and Apollo Intensa Emozione, and the P1 GTR requires 60 Hybrid Engine cards, both are still better choices than the 2015 Spano, especially due to lacking Elite Car status yet still being better than the Spano in terms of overall performance.

In fact, the amount of Credits that can be obtained from 40 Master Credit Packs is equivalent to buying a TRION NEMESIS 30 times. The MP4-31 also has the advantage of requiring only A8Credits 1,415,480 for its Pro Kits even though it requires 52 Custom Racing Engines.

In terms of Car Mastery rewards, the 2015 Spano awards only A8Licenses 100; while that is the most for any one car in the game, the 2015 Spano does not award any other useful rewards than Licenses and Credits, much like the GT by CITROEN.

Being an Elite Car, the 2015 GTA Spano is not capable of being fully utilized for farming in its Mastery Challenge 15 (set in Ipanema Showdown and a Flawless race), something which the aforementioned McLaren 675LT, GT by CITROEN, and McLaren MP4-31 are capable of (with Dubai Reverse, The London Eye, and Dubai respectively as the Mastery Challenge 15 tracks for the latter three cars).

Tune-ups cost A8Credits 3,500 and takes 2h 30 min to finish.

Alternate procuring methods

2015 Spano alternate price

With a short-lived glitch, the 2015 GTA Spano could be obtained more easily outside of the VIP System, but was priced at A8Tokens 13,500. This has since been patched with the 2015 GTA Spano no longer viewable in the garage or selectable for races.

Certain YouTubers that played the game and were promoted as the "faces" of the game, such as NEKON, did receive the car for free as a gift from Gameloft, regardless of their VIP level.
