De Tomaso reveals its next supercar
De Tomaso has shared images and individual characteristics of its upcoming P900 Coupe. The supercar will reach production looking exactly like this, but the first deliveries will not be made until next summer.
The vehicle will weigh in at 900 kilograms (1,984 pounds) and have 900 PS (888 hp / 661 kW) at its disposal for a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio. Only 18 units will be made in total and offered starting from U.S. $3,000,000.
A special aerodynamic formula with a host of louvers and intakes, as well as a novel rear wing, is all about function before form, the manufacturer claims. The wind tunnel it was tested in is apparently normally reserved for Formula 1 racecars.
The P900 will get a carbon-fiber monocoque construction and all-carbon bodywork, which will help it offset a massive 6.5-liter V12 under the hood. The engine is currently being designed with the help of racing technology. The company says it will be able to produce up to 900 PS running on a special synthetic fuel mix.
The remaining parameters, including those related to the dynamics, will be announced closer to the production launch. In the future, the P900 is expected to be remade as a full-blown endurance racecar. Unlike most Le Mans hybrids on the track today, it will probably retain its large V12 under the hood. The first race is expected to take place in two years’ time.
