Spanish supercar brand AD Tramontana has officially launched in the UK at the Salon Privé event at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
Although it's road legal, the Tramontana is pitched as a track-focussed special. It will be powered by a choice of two engines in Europe, with the entry-level Tramontana R featuring either a Mercedes-sourced twin-turbocharged 5.5-litre V12 with up to 710bhp or an Audi-sourced naturally aspirated 5.2-litre V10 with 592bhp, depending on specification.
The V12 powerplant also features two power modes, allowing drivers to select between 542bhp and 710bhp outputs. A top speed of 186mph is promised, along with a 0-62mph sprint time of less than 3.6sec.
The mid-range Tramontana XTR also features the V12 engine and is geared more towards pure track performance. In this form, the Tramontana has a top speed of more than 202mph and can reach 62mph in less than 3.3sec, the company claims. The XTR is the model Tramontana will be pushing in the UK.
The top-level XTR-GT gets another power boost, taking the V12 engine's output to 838bhp.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission, although the company says it plans to offer an eight-speed sequential option in the near future. Based around an Italian-made lightweight carbonfibre tub, all three Tramontana models have a dry weight of 1350kg. Each car is built to customer specifications, even down to paint specifications and interior layouts.
The company has so far sold seven cars in the last three years, and plans to sell three models in the UK during its first year on sale. Tramontana's factory in Barcelona has the capacity to build twelve cars annually.
