It’s been a couple of years since we last heard about the gorgeous De Tomaso P72 and thankfully the company shared an update from its cold-weather development.

This short video released by De Tomaso Automobili shows a camouflaged P72 test car power sliding across a frozen lake in Switzerland. While we don’t get a good idea of just how potent the P72 will be from this video, it does show that on the move, it looks every bit as beautiful as it does in glamourous showroom photographs.

Here’s what we know about the De Tomaso P72. The company itself is owned by Ideal Team Ventures which also operates Apollo Automobili. As such, the P72 is based on the same carbon fiber monocoque chassis as the otherworldly Apollo Intensa Emozione (IE) but doesn’t feature the Apollo’s Ferrari-derived naturally-aspirated V12.

Instead, De Tomaso confirmed in late 2019 that the P72 would rock a 5.0-liter supercharged V8 built in collaboration with Roush, retaining at the same time the brand’s historical bonds with Ford-sourced V8 powertrains. This engine should be good for upwards of 700 hp and over 608 lb-ft (825 Nm) of torque. It should also rev to over 7,500 rpm and will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission driving the rear wheels.

De Tomaso originally planned to build the P72 in Italy but in October 2020, the company revealed that it was planning to move its core operations to the United States and will build the car locally. It is not yet clear precisely where exactly De Tomaso will establish its U.S. headquarters but we know that it will be capped at just 72 units worldwide with each starting at around €750,000 ($819,000).
