First and foremost, a supercar needs an exhilarating sounding name. Spanish manufacturer, Tramontana, have got that aspect of their proposed supercar very well sorted. I mean how convincing does the Tramontana XTR V12 sound? We swear we can hear that thing coming from a mile away.
On the styling front it is quite another story however. The small Spanish manufacturer, based in the Catalonian town of Girona, has clearly taken inspiration for its supercar from the Caparo T1 and the idea of F1 performance for the road. The only thing is F1 cars are probably the least attractive things on four wheels and the Tramontana XTR (pictured above) still insists on having a closed bubble cabin like the Tramontana R (pictured below) that came before it, and makes it look a bit like the Dutch, three-wheeled Carver.
Styling fan or no, what you cannot deny is the performance the XTR V12 promises. It is like the Tramontana R but now with added cojones. It will feature a turbo-charged, Mercedes-Benz sourced V12 engine that will make 140 kW more, pushing the total output to 662 kW. The sprint to 100 km/h should happen in 3.0 seconds, and top speed should easily surpass 340 km/h.
Tramontana are a company that‘s been around since 2007 and they only hand-make around 12 cars a year. The cars already sell for prices around the € 500 000 mark. This means their clientele are clearly not affected by the whole pesky Euro debt crisis thing.
