Tramontana XTR

The a.d. Tramontana R is a model that had its first official debut back in 2009. The car had under the hood a V12 engine developed by German carmaker Mercedes-Benz. Even if it is a little hard to believe, the 2.800 pounds coupe was capable of developing up to 760 horsepower, being available in different tunes. The carmaker is now offering a new variant, called the XTR. Even if there are no official pictures available, the Spanish manufacturer has released this set of renderings and some new information regarding their new achievement. It seems that the model will be powered by a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V12 that will be capable of developing up to 888 horsepower and a maximum of 678 lb. ft. of torque.

Apparently the output will be sent to the wheels through a new very fast competition transmission, but no official data were offered, so we can only take a guess. The new mid-engine, rear-drive Tramontana XTR model has also an improved appearance and it features new aerodynamic elements, lights, wheels and a lot more. The core airplane fuselage-like construction and cycle fenders remain, in case you were wondering. The model will be available later this year and its price is expected to be somewhere around EUR 420.000, which means approximately $ 514.000.

It seems that the carmaker will only build twelve Tramontana XTR units per year. This situation might change in the future as a.d. Tramontana specialists are working on expanding its manufacturing capabilities and also the importance of the dealers. More information on the matter is expected soon, so stay tuned.
