Wheels protruding out of the body, the driver seating area that looks more like a fighter jet cockpit and all those weird air intakes and manifolds all point at one think. A car that is built to race. The only car that we are yet familiar with, coming from the Spanish a.d. Tramontana is the Tramontana R supercar. This road legal race car was seen first back in 2009. The Spanish company has now come with its successor or rather just a couple of rendered images of it. It is called the Tramontana XTR.
For those who haven’t heard of the earlier Tramontana R, it was a supercar weighing at 3000 pounds, made almost entirely out of carbon-fiber and a massive, twin turbocharged, V12 Mercedes-Benz engine producing 700 horses, powering it. The engine was capable of propelling the Tramontana R from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds and pushing it to a top speed of 214 miles per hour. Take a glance at the image above to see what Tramontana R looks like.
So after the introduction to the not too distant model from the past, we come to the present. As of now, the most we know about the Tramontana XTR is how it will look when it hits production and a few basic tech specs. But from the two image renderings it is clear what some of the exterior changes are over its earlier model. As for the powerhouse, it is still reported to be powered by the same V-12 Mercedes-Benz engine but improvements have been made in the form of racing-spec transmission system and a new aero-package. The engine has been tuned and will now produce a crazy 876 horsepower. This could very well mean faster 0-60 mph timings and higher top speeds.
The Tramontana XTR is expected to be priced at 420,000 euros or about $514,000 will likely be available by the end of the year.
