Drive: P72 Supercar on Legendary F1 Track.

V12 Prototype: Aural Splendor

Although De Tomaso might not boast the same brand prestige as Ferrari or Lamborghini, that doesn’t signify its vehicles are any less emotive or thrilling. Recently released onboard movie clips have given us a glimpse of what it would be like to drive the remarkable P72 supercar.

The P72 recently delighted in a spirited trek around the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, zooming round the 2.89-mile course while accompanied by a ravishing V12 engine sound. It generates awe-inspiring noise, yet unfortunately, it isn’t the motor that customers will get.

A prototype such as this one is driven by an ear-splitting twelve-cylinder engine. When it reaches its production version, however, the vehicle will be powered by a 5.0-liter Coyote V8, taken from the Ford Mustang GT.

On the whole, it’s evident this P72 will be somewhat atypical from the regular Mustang V8. The De Tomaso vehicle will feature a potent Roush-generated supercharger which boosts its performance to an impressive 700 horsepower and 608 lb-ft of torque. This arguably compensates for the possibility of disappointment in the form of a six-speed manual gearbox that dispatches the power to the back wheels.

Beneath the exquisite exterior lies a carbon fiber monocoque frame from the mighty Apollo Intensa Emozione. The chassis is the driving force that lends strength, durability, and performance to this astonishing vehicle.

Despite a V12 often being symbolically aligned with the notion of an Italian supercar, let us not neglect the reality that Ford’s V8 was likewise utilized in De Tomaso Pantera – likely the brand’s most remarkable car.

Despite appearing like a supercar, De Tomaso maintains the P72 is an extravagant grand tourer. A single glance of its inner’s may have you nodding in accord.

In stark contrast to the Intensa Emozione and a plethora of other supercars manufactured by exclusive firms, the P72 boasts a perfectly designed interior. Admirable metal craftsmanship is combined with lush leather and juxtaposed with glimpses of carbon fiber and visible gear linkages to create a truly spectacular sight.

The outwardly appearance is simply fabulous, fusing classic race car styling with modern details. We would say it appears to be a cutting edge Ferrari 330 P3. Admittedly, not every person is pleased with the look.

Initially, the P72 was to be constructed in the United States of America. Instead, the firm positioned itself near the Nurburgring Nordschleife where it will fabricate all 72 models. Absolutely, De Tomaso has reserved only seventy-two cars for the global industry.

At a whopping cost of more than one million dollars, it may not be inexpensive, however, the unmatched beauty, performance, and exquisiteness makes it well worth it. Furthermore, those wanting something even more extraordinary can take into consideration the De Tomaso P900 track-only model.

In direct contrast to the P72, purchasers of the P900 can only buy it with either a V12 or V10 engine option – however, there is an extremely limited stock of just 19 models available, costing a stunning $3 million apiece.
