Here's something that hasn't been said for quite a while: A new De Tomaso is on the way.
If that name rings a bell, you're probably remembering De Tomaso's iconic supercar, the Pantera. It was a symphony of Italian styling and American grunt, produced from 1971 all the way through to 92. Feast your eyes...
Now, it's been announced that after a long absence, the De Tomaso name has been revived and a new model, celebrating the brand's 60th anniversary, will be revealed at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed. We don't know much else at this point, but there is reason to be hopeful that the new car might be rather special. The new De Tomaso (known as the 'Project P') is coming from the same team who created the stunning Apollo IE; a naturally-aspirated V12 hypercar that sounds like an old F1 racer and looks like something out of space.
So we can probably rest assured that that whatever their vision is for the new De Tomaso, it's not going to be a crossover SUV.
