Based on the Pontiac Solstice

Tauro Sport Auto has unveiled their new V8 Spider.

Based on the Pontiac Solstice (aka Saturn Sky, Opel GT and Daewoo G2X), the model features bespoke bodywork which borrows a few cues from the Fisker Karma and Alfa Romeo C8 Competizione.

Unfortunately, the interior is straight out of the GM parts bin. The only notable exceptions are a leather-wrapped dashboard, Alcantara trim and an aluminum gear knob on models equipped with a six-speed manual transmission.

Power comes from a GM-sourced 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 440 PS (324 kW / 434 hp) and 586 Nm (432 lb-ft) of torque. The company also offers a couple of performance packages which boost the engine's output to 480 PS (353 kW / 473 hp), 530 PS (390 kW / 523 hp) and more than 650 PS (478 kW / 641 hp).

Production will be limited to 30 units and pricing will start at approximately €100,000 ($125,740 / £80,590).

Why pay $125.000 for a redo Pontiac Solstice or Saturn Sky when you can convert your own....just because an other brand added a kit and leather wrap G.M interior parts and badging...

A copy of a Ferrari California with 350Z headlights. It looks good, but it reminds me to much to the Cali

This is not a crap platform. Its been long overdue for a revival by a small manufacturer - preferably one that is defunct and need of revitalization.

Why they changed name it`s just a body kit and different engine. I have seen more better tuned cars than this

I think they should offer a conversion for solstice/sky owners.
