De Tomaso announces its latest stunning creationSeptember 17, 2020
The Italian automaker is preparing another exclusive supercar. The new product will be announced later this month.
More than a year has passed since the retro-styled De Tomaso P72 debuted, an incredibly gorgeous supercar inspired by 1960s racing car prototypes, including the P70. Since its debut at last year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, De Tomaso has been suspiciously quiet, but it turns out that the automaker is preparing something special.
As development continues on the P72, De Tomaso has released a series of teaser images announcing their next stunning creation. Unfortunately, there are very few details about the new project, but the images show that it is based on the P72. De Tomaso claims it will be launched as part of the automaker’s new informative AAR mission, but did not provide any further details.
In an announcement on social media, De Tomaso also confirmed that he will be sharing new details about the P72, so everyone is intrigued to see how the project has progressed since the prototype was unveiled last year.
“Although our marketing has stalled, our P72 development program has continued. We’ve also worked hard on something new and very special. We look forward to sharing with you updates to the P72 program and our new initiative, Mission AAR, ”says the manufacturer.
At the moment, what De Tomaso is actually preparing remains a matter of debate. It can be a new special edition P72 or a new personalization program that allows you to create a customized version of an exotic supercar exactly according to personal requirements.
If the mysterious design is based on the P72, it should have a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 tuned by Roush, producing over 700 horsepower and 824 Nm of torque, paired with a 6-speed manual transmission developed in-house by De Tomaso.
Production of the De Tomaso P72, which uses the same chassis as the Apollo Intensa Emozione, is limited to 72 units, and prices start at 750,000 euros. As for the Mission AAR program, we will find out more soon, as De Tomaso will make an “imminent” announcement this month.
