It's official: De Tomaso is back!

An all-new car is coming later this year

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...

A 1971 Pantera. Perfection.

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.

  • Great news ! I remeber the old Pantera was the fastest car in an old card game (about 1980)

    • I was about to say the exact same thing. Top Trumps did use completely fabricated statistics though. They reckoned the Kreidler 50cc GP bike revved to 24000 rpm or something similar. Not something an air cooled 2 stroke can do without...
