De Tomaso P72 2019
The De Tomaso P72 is a sports car manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer De Tomaso. Based on the underpinnings of the Apollo Intensa Emozione the car is meant to be a homage to the De Tomaso P70 prototype racing car.
The company introduced the new sports car at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The P72 uses a carbon fibre monocoque chassis constructed to LMP1 standards and is based on the Apollo Intensa Emozione sports car. Unlike the Intensa Emozione, the P72 is meant to be a grand tourer.
Designed by Jowyn Wong of Wyn Design, the exterior design is based on the P70 racing car and the LeMans race cars of the 1970s and combines modern elements with the classic shape. The interior is upholstered in diamond stitched leather and has opulent instrumentation featuring polished copped elements along with an open linkage gearshift lever finished in copper of the manual transmission installed in the car. The interior also has circular analogue and digital instrumentation design to recall the car interiors of the 1960s and 1970s.
72 units of the P72 are planned to be produced.
Engine: supercharged 5.0 Coyote V8 (Ford Mustang), tuned by Roush to 700 hp / 824 Nm.
For reference: the original DeTomaso Panthera also used a Ford V8; also the 1965 De Tomaso P70 used a Ford V8 (tuned by Shelby).
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
