It’s not a trendy electric supercar. Italians build De Tomaso P900 is another kind of anomaly in the automobile upper deck where it exists: the P900 is powered by a V12 engine that only runs on synthetic fuelup to 12,300 rpm.
Priced at around $3 million and limited to just 18 pieces, the carbon-bodied P900 weighs less than 2,000 pounds. Its 6.2-liter engine makes up about a quarter of that weight.
In spite of De Tomaso is covering the full specs on the car except for those customers who have ordered, the engine is expected to make around 900 hp; it is still under development until 2024, although the model will be officially launched in the spring.
For customers looking to show off their P900s, it will be available before 2024 using De Tomaso’s F1-sourced V10. The design of the two-seater is completely sci-fi, adapted De Tomaso P72used one carbon fiber LMP1-built monocoque chassis and 5.0-liter engine turbochargers Ford Coyote V8.
Norman Choi, CEO of De Tomaso, said: “As an automotive enthusiast, it is difficult for me to accept a silent future driven by electric vehicles. “We believe that alternatives do exist, and developing our new platform, fueled by synthetic fuels, is our solution to perpetuating this shared passion for home. sing the internal combustion engine.”
In pursuit of zero-emissions mobility, Choi said the new venture does not envision a future that sacrifices “a vital element we all hold dearly — the soul and symphony of engine.”
