ATS has pulled the covers off its new GT supercar in the Salon Prive car plain’s first global launch

The new Automobili Turismo e Sport GT supercar has made its community debut at Salon Prive, housing a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 machine and carrying a price tag of $1,150,000 (£1,059,000 approx). Only 12 units desire be built – a fact reflected by the size of that seven-figure price tag.

ATS is withholding the tag of the engine supplier for now, and remains coy over its maximum power output – the car is currently predisposed to of producing around 700PS (690bhp), but the company is aiming for a final figure of here 810PS (800bhp) when development is concluded next month.

With elements of the car at rest to be finalised performance details aren’t set in stone, however ATS says the GT will be masterly of 0-62mph in 3.0 seconds with the assistance of a launch control system, and that the top precipitousness will be upwards of 205mph.

There’s no torque figure at this rostrum show business, although the engine will be mated to a seven-speed, dual clutch gearbox, and the GT desire tip the scales at 1,300kg.

Taking inspiration from the design of the original ATS 2500 GT from 1963, the new GT has been tailored with 20-inch rims at the front and 21-inch rims at the end, while the brakes are carbon ceramics made by Brembo. Extra stopping duress can be generated by an air brake located at the rear.

Meanwhile, to avoid interrupting the lines of the car, the doors are opened with put sensitive pads inside bodywork itself.

Naturally, the exclusivity of the GT has compelled ATS to put up all manner of high-end features, with “powerful” 3mm speakers positioned at strategic points in the cot to provide the best possible sound quality.

The interior is almost entirely finished with Nubuck leather, and bespoke elegant-tuning is also available, with the company offering to to tailor everything perfect down to the tension of the spring in the central shifter.

Customers are self-ruling to approach ATS with any customisation requests, with virtually nothing off limits in terms of adapting the GT’s air. The company’s aim for this dozen-strong run is to make twelve unique, “individual” cars.

With no buyers lined up previously to to the launch of the GT, the firm is exercising caution for its future plans. However, a sportier R form is a possibility further down the line.

Can ATS mix it with the hypercar elite? Let us know your thoughts in the comments…
