Trident Iceni Sports: Um diesel que, a 190 quilômetros por hora, chega a 24.6 Km/l

The 6.6-liter Duramax V8 in the Trident Iceni is the same diesel engine used in the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and other heavy-duty pickup trucks from GM. In the Iceni, this engine produces 395 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

A performance upgrade pack boosts output to 930 horsepower and 950 pound-feet of torque. A track performance upgrade pack generates 660 horsepower and a heady 1,050 pound-feet of torque. The track pack also adds a race-spec suspension, beefier clutch and brakes, and paddle shifters, among other features.

There are three versions of the Trident Iceni. The Iceni Convertible, which was first shown several years ago, has a unique design with a brace extending from the top of the windshield between the seats to the rear of the car.

The Iceni Magna, which was just announced, is a coupe with a so-called “fastback” design. Trident said when it announced the Magna that  it also plans a third model called the Iceni Venturer, which will be a sporty wagon. The British refer to this as an “estate” body style.

The company did not say when it will begin producing the vehicles.

The name Iceni originates from a tribe in ancient Britain that rebelled against the Roman invasion.
