A Modern Day Time Machine
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, the design of the P72 is inspired by the early 60s of the racing prototype era vehicles, the sport 1000, sport 2000 and P70, some of the initial cars that were developed by De Tomaso.
The P72’s evolutionary design focuses on Le Mans prototype vehicles into the modern era. The P72 is a collaboration between De Tomaso and Wyn Design, much like the collaboration between Alejandro and Carroll Shelby.timeless beauty and timeless proportions of the ’60’s
With a continuous flow of all surfaces, beautifully bold lines, emphasized powerful wheel arches, low nose, and teardrop glasshouse architecture, resulting in perfect proportions. The P72 design language is set to stand the test of time with flawless attention to detail, combined with the most advanced engineering execution. Unquestionably powerful and sensual from every angle, the P72 truly defines the term ‘Modern-Day Time Machine’.
“We intentionally incorporated a distinctive aerodynamically optimized body for performance and to modernize the aesthetics, while the classic wing mirrors and front emblem cap pays homage to the P70.“ - Jowyn Wong, P72 designer and founder of Wyn Design explained.
He continued, “Beneath the surface, the interior showcases an elaborate combination of design and exotic materials. Polished copper and diamond pattern detailing adorn the cabin, fashioning a true sense of drama and occasion. The classically designed switchgear and circular analogue display dials take inspiration from the timeless design themes of the 60s and 70s era.”
