Detomaso Guara

De Tomaso developed two models of the Guara: a coupe and a barchetta. Thanks to its aerodynamics the models are capable of maximum efficiency while the mechanics help obtain a light, but resistant frame. The model features leather upholstery, snug racing seats and silent air-conditioning. The engine, gearbox and central backbone chassis are made of honey-comb and integrated with the rear carrying structure that offer very good road-holding and ease of handling. The model is powered by a 4600 cc V8 engine that develops a progressive torque even at low rpm. The main objective of this supercar is to offer an amusing and relaxing driving which allows high speed but at the same time a natural and immediate introduction in the bend. Customers can choose every part among several optional accessories.
