De Tomaso is officially revived, just in time for the brand's 60 anniversary, and the auto that brings it back to our lives is the rather stunning P72. To celebrate its triumphant return, the brand De Tomaso has released images and preliminary details about their brand new auto named "P72". It might seem that the latest to jump on the bandwagon is Hong Kong-based IdealVenture, which has revealed its latest product in the form of the De Tomaso P72 at this week's Goodwood Festival of Speed. "We have created a modern-day time machine that pays homage to an integral part of history and a vehicle with its own provenance".
De Tomaso is back-and it's got a new auto to prove it.
"We created the Apollo IE from a blank sheet of paper, producing a modern day auto with true provenance".
This iconic Italian brand was relaunched by the same people who are behind Apollo Automobili, the Ideal Team Ventures (ITV). Renamed to "Ghia-De Tomaso Sport 5000", the auto first appeared at the motor show in Turin in 1965.

"A similar way the Pantera created a new category when it debuted in 1970, the P72 will create a new benchmark of its own", said Ryan Berris, De Tomaso General Manager. In the early 1960-ies the company's founder, Alejandro de Tomaso teamed up with Carroll Shelby to create the model P70 - a name that came from Prototipi and huge displacement of 7.0 liters. Judging by the first look at the De Tomaso P72, its lovely curves on the body and teardrop glasshouse will mesmerize you.
Inside the cabin, the P72 has polished copper trim elements, "classically-designed switchgear", analogue dials, and diamond pattern detailing to evoke the best of the 1960s and 1970s. What we do know is that the P72 rides on a carbon-fibre chassis shared with the Apollo Intensa Emozione.
Given that the Apollo IE is using a Ferrari-sourced naturally aspirated V12, should we expect the same for the De Tomaso P72? However, V8 has a strong as Italian company made its name by using eight-cylinder powertrains for their designed cars.
