News Could De Tomaso Rise Again?

Could De Tomaso Rise Again?

As a certified carnut, you’ve heard of De Tomaso and have seen pictures (or the real thing) of their most popular model, the Pantera. The Pantera was sold from the early 70s to 1992 and all shared one item of trivia that we all remember: It was powered by a Ford 351 cu Cleveland V8.

Just over 7,200 of them were produced. It served as the beautiful Mangusta’s successor and sadly, the company struggled to survive afterwards and died in 2015. De Tomaso is dead… Long live De Tomaso?

According to the UK intellectual Property Office, Ideal Team Ventures Limited has revived the name and become its new owner. A quick search reveals that a number of the famed car names remain associated with the company. An application was received in mid-July of this year and as of only a few days ago, the name DE TOMASO AUTOMOBILI LIMITED has been registered.

We’re excited to see what will come of this. We’ll let you know as we learn more.
