It’s a brand new model with zero mileage and, according to Tramontana, the buyer will able to have the vehicle ergonomics fully customized at the factory. Tramontana also boasts that a professional racing driver has compared the experience of driving the car to that of the McLaren F1.
Power in the Tramontana GT comes from an undisclosed V-10 engine, tuned to deliver approximately 600 horsepower. The engine is mid-mounted and paired with a six-speed sequential gearbox with paddle shifters.
Performance figures are yet to be released, but Tramontana’s road-going R-Edition
with 720 horsepower needs just 3.6 seconds to accelerate to 62 mph. Note, Tramontana is working on an even more powerful model dubbed the XTR
, which is expected to deliver 888 horsepower.
All of Tramontana’s cars are based around a lightweight chassis constructed from carbon fiber. The configuration and setup of the GT, however, is completely focused on performance at the expense of comfort and road-going ability._______________________________________Follow Motor Authority on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
