A New Logo and a New Car
The good Lord of cars saw fit to let one of the supercar icons return to this lovely earth. De Tomaso is coming back from the dead. Apollo Automobili is the company that revived the brand and will bring a new car and a new logo to the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 4.
Currently, the new De Tomaso car is code-named Project P. According to CarBuzz, the De Tomaso return has been several years in the making. The start of its rise from the ashes came in 2014 when Ideal Team Ventures, which owns Apollo Automobili, acquired the rights to De Tomaso.
Over the next five years, Ideal Team Ventures had to get De Tomaso in order. Now Project P is close to being a reality. The details on Project P are still scarce at the moment. However, there are two images of the car floating around. We have included them in this post.
The car looks like it could be a spiritual successor to the old Pantera from De Tomaso. That car came out in the 1970s. We’re all for that. This is a smart move by the company. The Pantera was the brand’s best-known model, and using the nostalgia people have for it could help the company get the buyers it’ll need to be a success.
