A new player in the British sports car market, Trident, today announced their flagship Iceni sports car will now be available globally. The Iceni is the world’s fastest and most fuel-efficient diesel sports car.
The Iceni is one of the first production vehicles that can reach a top speed of 305 kmph. It can also do around 3,200 kilometres on a single tank of mineral or bio-diesel fuel. The Iceni uses torque multiplication technology to achieve a unique combination of speed, power and fuel efficiency.
There are three variants of the Iceni. Besides the standard car, there is a ‘Magna,’ which is a fastback, whilst the ‘Venturer’ is an estate (station wagon). All three models have the same specifications, each with their own distinctive design. The boot in all the cars is generously specced allowing a decent amount of luggage to be carried...
Phil Bevan, designer and founder of Trident said, “The Trident cars deliver incredible speed and performance combined with outstanding fuel efficiency, achieved through our unique torque multiplication technology.”
While most believe that horsepower delivers power, speed and fuel efficiency, in reality it is the torque that matters. Using this new torque amplification technology in a road car increases fuel efficiency by up to 20 per cent. Trident has incorporated this technology into all their sports cars. The British designed Trident sports cars boast a distinctive look, with clean curves and the unusual sculpted rear. Upto 39 independent parameters can be specified according to personal preferences, including the trick roof called , ‘oculight.’ In addition, every Iceni can be built to bespoke customer specifications, thereby ensuring that no two cars are the same.
Daniel Monaghan, co-founder of Trident said, “We have worked extremely hard to reach this point & the whole Trident team is thrilled to be bringing the world’s most fuel-efficient diesel sports cars to market.” The three Iceni sports cars are available to buy globally with prices starting from Rs. 2 crores (including 121 per cent import duty in India.) With limited availability and a pre-launch waiting list, the three models are already in high demand across the globe.
