De Tomaso P72 (2025)


A Timeless Tribute
A modern-day classic dressed with a timeless shape evoking unspeakable elegance. Designed to be enjoyed, the De Tomaso P72 harps back to the days of mechanical synergy between man and machine. Offered exclusively with a 6 – Speed manual transmission, this is a car that is bred to bridge the gap between generations.

Lightweight & Analogue Focused
Whilst having a cutting-edge, bespoke all carbon-fibre chassis the P72 features a design with perpetual beauty and a proper manual transmission – a car for all generations.

Unique Unibody Design
Over the past year, De Tomaso have embarked on a journey to unify the key structural components of the P72, merging the glasshouse and outer shells to create a true marvel of engineering. The unibody, single-tool approach is cutting-edge and significantly improves the longevity of the vehicle’s underpinnings. With zero connecting joints or adhesive bonding, further weight savings, and occupant safety optimizations, the latest and final iteration of the P72 monocoque boasts a unique, singular, and continuous form – a marvel of carbon fibre craftsmanship.

Ergonomic Enhancements
In response to feedback from custodians who have experienced the pre-production cars, significant ergonomic changes have been implemented by optimizing the interior surfaces. Custodians will now benefit from an expanded interior cabin, thanks to an 80 mm reduction in the driver’s seating position, providing additional legroom and enhancing overall driver comfort. Additionally, after thoughtful consideration of custodian feedback, De Tomaso teams have diligently engineered a notable 120 mm reduction in the sill for production, improving the ease of entry and exit to the vehicle.

Improved Saftey Measures
Significant attention has also been devoted to safeguarding the core structure of the monocoque during minor collisions. De Tomaso now introduced an all-new carbon fiber bumper on the front crash structure, providing additional cross-bracing with a tubular design to facilitate a linear flow of forces. Similarly, the rear crash structure has been noticeably enlarged to improve stiffness and fitted with an additional low-impact retaining bar, providing maximum protection for the monocoque in the event of a light collision.

Optimized For Road Compliance
In the suspension department, extensive track testing demonstrated the maturity of the design under aggressive driving conditions. Yet, the dual nature of the P72 demands a refined approach to road dynamics, melding characteristics of both road and race cars. With dimensional enhancements to the vehicle’s core structure, a complete redesign of the suspension became imperative to align with new mounting points and desired road-driving capabilities.

As it is the first priority, De Tomaso engineering teams have once again expanded the overall dimensions of the upper and lower wishbones, resulting in notable enhancements to road compliance, longevity, and mechanical grip. Included in this change, De Tomso initiated a thorough overhaul of the double wishbone packaging to improve lateral grip during aggressive driving and reduce camber gain in the corners. Overall, this latest suspension geometry represents the culmination of years of motorsport experience, condensed into a package that excels both on the road and on track.

Hardware Updates
Consistent with this ethos, De Tomaso teams took the decision to upgrade the suspension bearings to fully sealed derivatives sourced from the latest GT4 race cars. These enhancements guarantee seamless suspension operation in any weather, with a keen focus on maintaining the system’s durability. As a result of the geometry refinements, the vehicle now boasts significantly improved balance both front and rear, instilling an unparalleled sense of encouragement and confidence when conditions allow for spirited driving.

Furthermore, the new layout facilitates an improved packaging of the steering rack and ensures exceptional performance even under bumpy conditions or high loads. Integrating a design derived from LMP race cars, The fully hydraulic evolution now boasts the smallest possible turning radius achievable for the P72. Finally, the connection mechanism has now been optimized, seeing a reduction from three to two universal joints, resulting in a more direct feel and predictable linear behaviour.

The P72 remains highly exclusive with only 72 timepieces allocated worldwide.
