The Spartan V is a sleek and stylish track car featuring Ducati 1198S engine capable of producing 170 horsepower.

With a tubular space-frame carbon fibre chasis that makes the car lightweight but extremely tough, other features of the Spartan V include fully-adjustable racing shock absorbers, and exposed suspension components. Only 300 of The Spartan V units will be produced and they are available at a price of about $84,000.

Implications - While there may be other cars faster or newer than the Spartan V, it has firmly established itself as my official "dream car." Not only am I attracted to the gorgeous red paintjob, but the Spartan V is a specialty creation that looks ready for anything. Especially a sunny summer's day.
