A Tribute to Celebrate
De Tomaso's 60th Anniversary
"When I was told this new De Tomaso is an “homage” to my P70 Sports racer I was honored. I had no idea my concept from the mid ‘60s would in any way be influential to a car being presented today. My first impressions of the new DeTomaso are all so positive I hardly know where to begin. The exterior form is so well done it invites you to keep walking around, admiring every subtle detail. In this day of modern super GT’s it’s difficult to stand out for more than a short time. With its design and engineering I think this De Tomaso P72 will set a new standard."
-Peter Brock, Original P70 designer
A Modern Day Time Machine
An homage to the original De Tomaso P70
This year marks the 60th Anniversary of De Tomaso. To commemorate, our owners are proud to announce the launch of our new project, formally named the P72. The P72 is a tribute to the original P70.
Speaking about the new P72, Norman Choi, of De Tomaso, said, “We are delighted to announce the launch of this exclusive car. We have devoted numerous days and nights developing a car that can live up to its predecessor. The P72 evokes the spirit of Alejandro de Tomaso, the brand and the eras that this car represents.”
A true modern-day time machine, the P72 will create a new segment in today’s market. A segment for those who have been yearning for a modern-day classic that is not only dressed with a timeless shape and an unspeakable elegance, but one that will provide a grand touring experience, making you feel as if you are back in 1960’s.
“A similar way the Pantera created a new category when it debuted in 1970, the P72 will create a new benchmark of its own. We have created a modern-day time machine that pays homage to an integral part of history and a car with its own provenance. When the final specifications and pricing for the car is revealed, people will realize how it adheres to the six core foundational pillars of De Tomaso: Heritage, Passion, Racing, European Design, and World-Class Performance at Extreme Value.” - Ryan Berris, De Tomaso General Manager and CMO.
The car we are presenting is our statement car, to showcase not only the new design, but also the level of engineering execution and refinement instilled into everything we produce. This car represents a glimpse into our future, whilst an ode to the past.
The P72 will remain highly exclusive and only 72 cars will be produced. Whilst having a cutting-edge world-class chassis the Project P features a design with perpetual beauty and a proper manual transmission. This is a car for all generations.

A homage to the Original P70
Words by designer, Jowyn Wong -
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, the design of the P72 is inspired from the early 60s of the racing prototype era vehicles, the sport 1000, sport 2000 and P70, some of the initial cars that were developed by De Tomaso.
The P72 evolutionary design focuses on timeless beauty and timeless proportions of the 60’s Le Mans prototype vehicles into the modern era.
With continuous flow of all surfaces, beautifully bold lines, emphasized powerful wheel arches, low nose and teardrop glasshouse architecture resulting in perfect proportions. The P72 design language is set to stand the test of time with flawless attention to detail, combined with most advanced engineering execution. Unquestionably powerful and sensual from every angle, the P72 truly defines the term modern day time machine.
We intentionally incorporated a distinctive aerodynamically optimized body for performance and to modernize the aesthetics, while the classic wing mirrors and front emblem cap pays homage to the P70.
Discover the Exterior
Discover the Interior
The architecture of the interior takes a minimalist design approach with minimal tech intervention and complexity. Highly focused on analogue theme and tactility, the classically designed switchgear and circular analogue dials takes inspiration from the timeless design themes in the 60s and 70s. The interior design language signifies a story and relationship between De Tomaso and Ford.
Discover the Chassis
Timeless Design with a Modern Foundation
Bespoke, all-carbon fibre chassis
A timeless design paired with a state-of-the-art chassis.
The P72 is based on the state-of-the-art all-carbon chassis from the Apollo IE, featuring the first all-carbon fiber production chassis of its kind, consisting of the monocoque, as well as subframes and crash structures that adhere to respective FIA LMP safety requirements and features a carbon mono-cell.
A similar approach to what Alejandro had done with his state-of-the-art chassis by sharing it with the Vallelunga, P70 and Mangusta. By conducting a technology transfer from the Apollo IE, the P72 has a tested and proven platform which will ensure the highest level of quality and performance with an accelerated development timeline.

The P72 will remain highly exclusive and only 72 cars will be produced. Whilst having a cutting-edge world-class chassis the Project P features a design with perpetual beauty and a proper manual transmission. This is a car for all generations. Full technical specifications and pricing will be revealed in due course. We are forecasting a base price for the P72 of approximately 750,000 euro and are currently accepting Registrations of Interest via soft deposits for the limited run while we finalize the production specifications and pricing. The exterior and interior designs will remain largely the same and we will disclose final details on the powertrain and other strategic partnerships in the coming months as we plan for the full homologation process for our target markets.
