DeTomaso P72 For Sale
Be the first in line for one of only 72 of these stunning DeTomaso P72 supercars for sale, recently announced at The Goodwood Festival of Speed, July 2019.
The DeTomaso P72 took to the track and received a frenzied welcome. Shades of the Jaguar XJ220 in profile, the attention to styling detail was like something never seen before. Breattakingly, jaw droppingly beautiful, the car sounded as good as it looked, and that is high praise. Offered for sale at $850,000 plus taxes, the DeTomaso P72 will be available to just 72 buyers as a part of the re-introduction of the brand. The history of DeTomaso is well documented. with a partnership between Italian Alejandro De Tomaso and Carroll Shelby to produce the iconic mid 1980's supercars that included the Pantera.
Engine for the P72 is as yet unknown although logic would suggest a screamih V8 to maintain the traditions of the DeTomaso brand as well a s the looks and nauture of the P72. The rose gold wheels, mirrors and interior suggest something particularly special and it is hard to imagine a hybrid motor sat behind the driver in such a stunning looking car.
The P72 is built around a carbon chassis that was originally developed by HWE, supplier to AMG.And guuess what - no flappy paddle gearshift but a manual stick - what joy.
De Tomaso P72 For Sale - Powertrain Update
Finally De Tomaso have released some information about the powertrain for use in the stunning new P72, announced at Goodwood earlier this year.
Hostorically DeTomaso have always used Ford engines and it looks as if the P72 will continue this trend with a Roushe tuned supercharged V8 delivering a whopping 700+ BHP. Whats equally exciting is that the massive power and torque will be delivered through a 6 speed maual gearbox.
The Ford engine redlines at over 7,500 rpm and promises a power curve “reminiscent of the purity of natural aspiration” as well as a soundtrack similar to V8-powered American performance cars of yesteryear. Exciting stuff. The engineers focused on minimising the sound generated by the supercharger in an attempt to mimic the noise of a normally aspirated engine as much as possible to evoke the heady sound of American muscle cars from the 1960s.
The P72 has been developed as a GT with an engine that will fully comply with emissions regulations in European markets. A “symphonic exhaust system” is being promised, more details to follow. Using the Ford Mustang GT's 5.0-litre supercharged V8 as its base, owners won’t have problems getting replacement components since the engine benefits from a solid after-sales support with many parts available.
The DeTomaso P72 will be produced in only 72 examples, with each carrying an estimated starting price of €750,000 (about £650,000). For such a stunningly beautiful car with promised performance to match we think that this represents an absolute bargain.
