A beauty… perpetual
Seeing, even just glimpsing the supercar is enough to make us even more hooked. To sum up in a few words, De Tomaso P72 is a modern classic which brings together elegance and purity. Its chassis is made of carbon, it is powered by a engine with a power of 700hp. Inside, we find padded seats in white leather, aluminum in the center of the steering wheel and above all a manual gearbox. This superb De Tomaso P72 was supposed to be produced in a factory in the USA. But the Covid has been there and this forecast could not be finalized. Finally, the production will be European! The production of the 72 copies will take place in a factory near the Nurburgring. The De Tomaso P72 will be sold at €750,000 each.

De Tomaso P72: quite a story
De Tomaso P72 sounds the resurrection of the Italian brand who disappeared for more than 10 years. In reality, the brand ceased all activity in 2004, following a rather chaotic financial situation! It has been redeemed so that it can now be reborn from its ashes. The P72 was created to revive the brand and celebrate with dignity the 60 years of De Tomaso! True ode to the P70 of the 60s developed in collaboration with Carroll Shelby.
The De Tomaso P72 which, like the Phénix… We’re talking about a thermal V8 and a manual gearbox, going against the current trend; I would wait a bit before signing a check#TheQuail #DeTomasoP72 pic.twitter.com/FJc99NNnP3
