2012 Spada Codatronca Monza

Images of the Spada Codatronca Monza boutique sports car have leaked onto the internet ahead of its debut at this year’s Top Marques Monaco show. The Codatronca, you’ll recall, is a Chevrolet Corvette Z06-engined low-volume supercar cooked up by Ercole Spada. Spada cut his teeth working for Zagato, BMW, and IDEA Institute before starting his own company, Spadaconcept.

The Codatronca is the company’s first attempt at a supercar and it uses an aluminum spaceframe and magnesium engine cradle coupled with the aforementioned Corvette engine. To make things just a tad more interesting, Spada adds twin superchargers to the already-potent 427, bringing the horsepower total to a heady 700.

As quoted by AllCarIndex, the Monza will have a scant 2,500-pound curb weight, meaning that Spada’s creation ought to hit 60 mph in three seconds flat and top out at nearly 210 mph.

Hyundai Sonata 2.0T configurator hits the interwebs

Filed under: Sedan, Hyundai

Time to get your creative caps and color swatches out, because it’s configurator time again. Next up is the Hyundai Sonata 2.0T, the sedan that continues to show a ton of strengths and few weaknesses.

Of course the palette is slightly limited, necessary when the package is so thorough and priced at just $20,865 for the SE. For instance, that trim offers just one interior, gray leather with cloth (nope, not making that up). You have to step up to the Limited trim, for another $2,900, to get one more interior hue. We don’t expect that to stop the car’s assault on the mid-size segment, so get to the configurator and arm yourself. Hat tip to Mike N.
