De Tomaso Deauville

The De Tomosa name is sin ominous with the Panthra, (a car I’ll get round too) but it also produces 240 four door saloons, the Deuville. Aimed at the luxury market it came fully loaded with all 1972 could muster including rear air conditioning and the usual all round power assistance from steering to windows. Powered by a 5.7ltr Ford V8 with 300bhp it was no slouch, reaching 60mph in 6.4sec’s and continued up to 146mph. Production stopped in 1984 after 3 series. At a time when all the supercar makers are looking at producing high performance saloons its nice to see one was at it nearly 40 years ago.
