Trident, will display its all-new Iceni at Salon Privé 2012, held at West London’s Syon Park from 5-7 September. The Iceni’s uses Trident’s patented Torque Multiplication technology to deliver a claimed top speed of nearly 200mph and a 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds. The Iceni is built to order in Norfolk and priced from £75,000.
A mid-front mounted 6.6-litre turbo-diesel capable of running on mineral diesel, bio diesel, palm oil and linseed oil delivers 430bhp and 950lb ft at under 3250rpm. An option to upgrade to 660bhp is also available, delivering 1050lb ft.
At a constant 70mph the specially tuned engine runs at just 980rpm, is capable of 68.9mpg and will keep going for over 2000miles on one full tank of diesel. Some clams – we can’t wait to try this muscle-car, which could evoke some pre-war sensations thanks to the lazy delivery of its truck engine.
Trident Sports Cars managing director, Phillip Bevan, says: ‘We are very pleased to be at Salon Privé which this year is a great celebration of all things British and home grown talent – something we feel very strongly about at Trident. It is also a place where sports cars and super cars of this calibre are sold, and we look forward to taking new orders for the Iceni at Syon Park this September.’
