De Tomaso returns with the gorgeous P72 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed
Welcome to Good at 2019 and we've got another brand new car.
This is the De Tomaso P72.
Now we had heard that De Tomaso was coming back and we though perhaps it would be a recreation of something like the Pantera GTS.
That wonderful sort of iconic supercar shape really, but no, so this is taking inspiration from the.
Peace 70100 to tomorrow.
So, obviously, eponymous founder of the company had a project back in the 60s and Carroll Shelby to create a sports car and that was the P70 in them so a lot of day for various reasons, mostly because he couldn't actually deliver on the seven liter engine that he promised.
Anyway, that chassis went on.
Came from the valley longer went on to become the main gangster.
It was never really finished the 70s so this is a tribute to that.
And it's pretty spectacular.
It was rather beautiful.
It reminds you of the Ferrari p four or five you might remember who's done a few years ago as a one off on an Enzo.
I think that was things and clicking house car.
Inside it's very bling reminiscence of a Bugatti i think in there but even more bling with all the rose gold and stuff, one thing we can notice about it is it just a manual gearbox.
I'm told that's not just for a show car, it will make it through production as well.
We don't know what engine its gonna have.
I would be betting a V8 decades that would link back to the original P 70 but we don't know.
We'll find out in due course.
This one's is gone and it is in fact from the Apollo IE.
Because this is based on the same chassis but I've been told that save is called Monaco.
But it's got two pieces to it.
And this is a different upper half.
To the Apollo I. So it's not it's not identical.
Price must have been 662 thousand pounds and they were going to build just 72 of them.
That's no way you think.
It's rather beautiful apart from this rose gold bit over the top for me.
