A Car Worthy of De Tomaso’s Name
De Tomaso revealed its new P72 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The company was revived just in time for its 60th anniversary, and the P72 is a car worthy of the company’s name and reputation. We knew the company was coming with something, but this is on a whole other level. The vehicle is said to be a modern-day classic by De Tomaso. It definitely takes cues from the company’s history books and past iconic supercars in general.
Ryan Berris, De Tomaso General Manager said the car is a special one that will help define a new area of the market. “A similar way the Pantera created a new category when it debuted in 1970, the P72 will create a new benchmark of its own,” said Ryan Berris, De Tomaso General Manager. “We have created a modern-day time machine that pays homage to an integral part of history and a car with its own provenance.”
Ideal Team Ventures acquired the rights to De Tomaso in 2014. Since then it has been working to revive the brand and the P72 is the car that will do it. The P72 features some of the sleekest and sexiest curves we’ve seen in a long time. Inside, the cabin looks like it was crafted for a king. It has polished copper and thick-looking leather all over the place. The gear shifter looks extremely intricate. The whole car has a kind of expensive and exclusive look to it that isn’t found elsewhere.
De Tomaso decided to keep technical specifications under wraps for a while longer. While we’d like to know, we’re also kind of glad. This allows people to fall in love with the P72 visually, and that’s not hard to do. Every inch of the car is like a piece of artwork. The details are important here, and that means the car should be quite good.
