Just copying the City tbh...

Quote :
Question: what connects graphic artist Frank Miller, an ancient civilisation, and a Ducati motorcycle? The answer, most unexpectedly, is this - the Spartan-V track car.

Built by Spartan, a small Australian company, this curvy little track-only speedster uses a 170 horsepower 1199cc Ducati motor to power along a steel spaceframe chassis and carbon fibre body that weighs a scarcely credible 300kg.

As a result the Spartan-V, claim its makers, is capable of 175mph and of sprinting to 62mph in a mere 3.0secs.

More weirdly, the car has been created, according to the company website, "in honour of the brave Spartans that fought so many years ago, so there will only be 300 Spartan-V track cars manufactured worldwide." (There's your Frank Miller connection).

Deposits for the Spartan-V are being taken now, and the total price will be $90,000AUD (£55k).

The clean looks of that mixed with the lovely deep noise of a ducati engine = awesome! Let's hope it handles as well too!

The badge is the make of the car and where they got all the idea's from so IMO the badge should stay, makes it unique Cool ...well unless into the whole debadging scene!
