The Spada Codatronca (sometimes called the SVS Codatronca) is an Italian-built supercar introduced by Spada Vetture Sport in 2008.
A convertible version, the Spada Codatronca Monza, was introduced in 2012.
Both cars used a modified chassis and engine from the Chevrolet Corvette C6, but featured all-new bodywork.
The Codatronca is born by the pencil of Ercole and Paolo Spada.
Released in 2008, the Codatronca TS was the first car in the Spada Codatronca line, and featured styling based on that of the Alfa Romeo TZ. The car uses a 7-litre Chevrolet LS7 V8 engine, but with the power output increased to 630 hp (470 kW; 639 PS) at 6,500 rpm, and 668 N·m (493 lb·ft) of torque. The chassis was derived from that used by the Chevrolet Corvette C6, but featured all-new bodywork. The bodywork is made from carbon-fibre, whilst the aluminium chassis features a roll cage. The Codatronca TS is claimed to be able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, and reach a top speed of 340 km/h (211 mph). It uses Brembo disc brakes all around; 380 mm (15.0 in) discs with eight-piston aluminium calipers at the front, and 355 mm (14.0 in) discs with four-piston aluminium calipers at the rear. 19" OZ alloy wheels are fitted, and shod with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres; 285/35 R19 at the front, and 345/35 R19 at the rear. A more powerful TSS version was planned, but never produced.
In 2011, Spada Vetture Sport announced that they would be building a convertible version of the Codatronca TS, named the Codatronca Monza. The Monza used a supercharged version of the Codatronca TS' 7-litre V8, and produced a claimed 710 hp (529 kW; 720 PS) and 701 lb·ft (950 N·m) of torque. The Codatronca Monza also featured the Italian Air Force roundel on the sides of the vehicle. Spada claimed that the car could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in three seconds, and reach a top speed of 208 mph (335 km/h). The Codatronca Monza appeared at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show, where a competition version was also announced.
The cars are available at SpadaVettureSport in a limited number every year.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
