…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca?

Spada Vetture Sport TS Codatronca

Spada Vetture Sport’s TS Codatronca looks like the car Batman would dive if the Batmobile got a bit boring one day.

The front looks like a cross between a Ferrari, a Lamborghini, and a Corvette, and the rear looks like…like…well, it doesn’t really look like anything else on the market right now, since a giant Tetris tail and stealth bomber lines aren’t exactly in vogue over at GM’s design shop.

The interior however is both beautiful and functional, with plenty of suede and carbon fiber to remind you that you aren’t in a car that will serve fleet time as part of a rental program.

The engine also reminds you that you’re in a race-bred car, with 600 horses on tap, and a short ratio gearbox to compile with FIA GT1 regulations.

For the green lovers, there’s an ad-hoc “converter kit” that allows you to fuel the car with E85 ethanol and also gives you a slight increase in torque and power.

It’s definitely not your daddy’s supercar, but then, who wants that anyways?

…Porsche plays video games?

Porsche Steering Wheel

For those that game with nothing but the best, this Porsche setup is as close to a 911 as you’re going to get.

With a “fully licensed” wheel, six speed gearbox, and pedals, this set features wireless connectivity, force feedback, 100 hours of battery life, table clamps, and a custom Porsche USB stick to save your best lap times on.

Plus, it’s a “to-spec” reproduction, so it’s about the closest you’re going to get to driving the real thing if you still spend all of your time driving around inside of a video game.
