Response to the global launch of the “world’s fastest diesel sports car” and the unveiling of two new models by a Swaffham company has “exceeded” expectations”.

Trident, the British sports car brand, which has its design team and manufacturing base at The Complex in Norwich Road, made its flagship Iceni sports car globally available last month.

And at the same time it pulled the wraps off two new models, the Iceni Magna (fastback) and the Iceni Ventura (estate). All three cars have price tags starting at £96,000.

A spokesman for Trident said that she was unable to confirm the number of orders placed, but added: “It has certainly exceeded initial expectations.”

With a top speed in excess of over 190mph and the ability to run for 2,000 miles on a single tank of mineral or bio-diesel, the Iceni sports car uses torque multiplication technology to achieve its unique combination of speed, power and fuel efficiency.

All three models boast the same impressive spec, each with its own distinctive design. In addition, the cars can store a minimum of two suitcases, as well as two holdalls, making a 2,000-mile road trip a reality.

Phil Bevan, designer and founder of Trident, said: “The Trident cars deliver incredible speed and performance combined with outstanding fuel efficiency, achieved through our unique torque multiplication technology.”

It is widely believed that horsepower delivers power, speed and fuel efficiency, but it is in fact torque that matters. Using this technology in a road car increases fuel efficiency by up to 20 per cent. Trident has patented a unique way of utilising torque multiplication to improve performance and efficiency, which has been incorporated into all their sports cars.

The British designed Trident sports cars boast a distinctive look, with clean curves and the unusual sculpted rear. The cars also incorporate over 39 bespoke, designed and manufactured components, including independent control of each car seat and oculight roof. Every Iceni can be built by hand to specific customer spec at the Swaffham base.

Daniel Monaghan, co-founder of Trident, said: “We have worked extremely hard to reach this point and the whole Trident team is thrilled to be bringing the world’s most fuel-efficient diesel sports cars to market.”

With limited availability and a pre-launch waiting list, the three models are already in high demand across the globe.
