Two Amazing Cars At the Same Event
The De Tomaso P72 marks the revival of the iconic brand. The car was revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It’s a beautiful supercar inspired by the P70 that came from the brand back when it earned its reputation as one of the most iconic supercar brands. Now the two cars will both be at the Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance in California in August, according to Motor Authority.
This will mark the P72’s first public appearance in North America. It will also mark the first time that the P70 has appeared with the P72 at the same venue. It will be nice to see these two cars together to be able to compare them both side-by-side.
The original P70 was a car that came from a collaboration between De Tomaso and Carroll Shelby. The car used the De Tomaso’s Vallelunga sports car as its basis, but it had a Ford V8 engine in it and some special bodywork. It was presented as the Ghia De Tomaso Sport 5000 at the Turin auto show in 1965. It was an important car for the company, but not the best-known. If you can, we highly suggest you catch it and the new car in California.
