The first model of the reborn De Tomaso brand, the De Tomaso P72, premiered at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
At the heart of the P72 is an all-carbon chassis from the Apollo IE atmospheric monster, which in addition meets FIA LMP safety requirements. The shape, proportions, and overall styling of the supercar hark back to the historic Le Mans 24 Hours and De Tomaso P70 racing prototypes.
The chassis support members are also made of carbon fibre reinforced plastic, which significantly increases the cost of construction. They are bolted to the monocoque and can be replaced in the event of a minor accident. Exterior body panels are also made of carbon fiber. Suspension is pushrod type. Brakes, of course, are carbon-ceramic.
