De Tomaso Longchamp is a front-engine coupe based on the Deauville sedan platform with a shorter wheelbase
The De Tomaso Longchamp was introduced at the 1972 Turin Motor Show and went on sale the following year.
The angular body with a long, wide bonnet gave the Longchamp a similarity to the Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC. The front headlights were borrowed from the Ford Consul/Granada, the rear from the Alfa Romeo 1750/2000 sedan.
The Longchamp was the basis for a better-known car, the Maserati Kyalami.
