Trident Iceni/Venturer will go over 190mph yet can do 2,000 miles on a tank of bio-diesel.
What makes the Iceni range of cars so interesting is the diesel powertrain common to each of them. The powertrain is a turbocharged 6.6-liter V-8 diesel engine, which is mounted up front and spins the rear wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine develops 395 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque?, and will rocket the Iceni from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds. Top speed is estimated to be over 190 mph.

Engine turns at 980 RPM when the car is going 70... that engine will last a few million miles at that rate!

But at a sticker price of around $161,000 I think I will stick with my old Toyota for awhile.

For example, the Iceni’s engine runs at just 980 revs when the car travels at a constant speed 70 mph, such as cruising on a highway. In this way, it can return an average fuel economy of up to 57.4 mpg and cover a range of more than 2,000 miles on a single tank.?
