Design influenced by elegant Fabergé egg aesthetic.
Following their earlier announcement this month that the stunningly vintage P72 has been approved for manufacturing, De Tomaso has released a more detailed view of the interior, particularly focusing on the intricate shifter and its visible linkage mechanisms. And what a magnificent shifter it is. Drawing parallels to Pagani’s mechanical controls, a Faberge egg, or any other elaborate artwork of your choice, the P72 features a sleek copper gear lever with delicate etchings of the De Tomaso logo and a diamond motif.
“The design of the P72 shifter is a testament to the meticulous craftsmanship of our team,” states the automaker, teasing us with the promise of even more detailed revelations to come.
De Tomaso is dedicated to producing only 72 units of their latest model, and they intend to take their time in perfecting each and every car. We have high confidence that a wide array of unique finishes and materials, beyond what has been revealed thus far, will be presented to each purchaser. It would be inappropriate for anything less than perfection when the cost stands at €750,000 (equivalent to roughly $815,000).
When De Tomaso unveiled the P72 at Goodwood in 2019, the initial lever design was not unappealing, but it did have a touch of flashy extravagance. However, the latest iteration shifts the focus to the transmission lever, elevating it to the main feature of the console rather than simply blending in. It is possible that both fully exposed and partially covered transmission hardware options will be available.
The latest redesign of the shifter boasts a minimalist approach by incorporating leather, while also sporting a sleek silver finish (possibly made of titanium or billet aluminum) and less shiny copper accents. Every fastener, lever, spring, and bezel adds to the overall impressive look, though it should be noted that these images are merely digital mock-ups, despite their realistic appearance.
A more accurate depiction of the original prototype design can be observed in the video provided later on.

According to De Tomaso, the shifter in the P72 is not just a mere component, but rather a “masterpiece of engineering” that is also likened to a “tactile symphony.” It serves as a crucial element in ensuring that the driver’s connection with the road is transformed into an intimate and soulful experience, characterized by a graceful balance of power and finesse. Speaking of finesse, the P72 boasts a six-speed manual gearbox that delivers power exclusively to the rear wheels. With a rear axle that can handle up to 700 horsepower and 608 lb-ft of torque, courtesy of a Coyote V8 engine similar to the one found in a Mustang Dark Horse, the P72 is no stranger to raw power. However, unlike its counterpart, this V8 is equipped with a Roush supercharger, resulting in a significant increase of 200 horsepower.
