Exclusive 560 HP Sports Car Unveiled
Rowdy and rambunctious Esperante Spyder GT features TREMEC Magnum 6-speed manual transmission
Las Vegas, Nov. 4, 2014/Panoz LLC News Release — Just a few months after Panoz LLC rolled out the first 25th Anniversary Edition Esperante Spyder, the Georgia-based manufacturer of exclusive sports cars unveiled its supercharged 560-horsepower Spyder GT version at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.
The supercharged 560-horsepower engine is coupled with a heavy duty, close-ratio TREMEC® T-56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission as standard equipment.
Panoz LLC will produce no more than 25 Esperante Spyder and Spyder GT sports cars to commemorate the company’s motorsports heritage and Panoz sports cars of the past 25 years. Production will be intentionally limited to ensure they remain special and exclusive and keep with Panoz LLC’s goal of creating exclusive, American-made, custom hand-built sports cars. The Spyder GT is nicely equipped at $229,000.
About the Magnum 6-Speed Transmission
The kingpin of TREMEC’s high performance line-up, the T-56 Magnum double-overdrive 6-speed transmission takes the very best from TREMEC’s current OEM technologies and pairs it with the most popular features of the TKO 5-speed.
Able to withstand a massive 700 lb-ft. of torque while providing unbelievably crisp shifts, no other manual transmission offers as much combined strength, versatility, and general ease-of-use as the T-56 Magnum
Known in its original equipment form as the ‘TR-6060’, the Magnum is an aftermarket version of the same transmission found in many of today’s most celebrated factory super cars – including the Corvette Z06, Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Hellcat, and Dodge Viper SST – giving you refinement where you want it and strength where it counts.
