The new De Tomaso SLS will be presented in Geneva in a few days... :|

4x4, three engines: V6 - 300hp,V8 - 550hp, and a diesel V6 with 250hp.

Apparently they already have 1450 orders!







Btw, there is a new coupe and sedan on the way too.. (thank god!)

It's not bad looking, and a 550 HP V8 is respectable... except I can't tell if it's supposed to be a car or an SUV!

DeTomaso was purchased by ex-Fiat marketing executive and Lancia CEO Gian Mario Rossignolo
Marketing, and fiat, not a good combo and he seems to have forgotten any lancia heritage as well, im betting he was responsible for those shitty lancia sedans too

yet another affront and name cash grab

The new trick in the auto industry: buy an old brand with a bit of heritage.... build a an ugly pointless pile of crap... paint it with all the brand halo you can lay your hands on..

This is NOT the return of the De Tomaso!! This is plain generic crap

Looks like a Chinese Volvo knock-off. Or Fiat Linea rebuilt to look like one. Awful and pitiable.

So a :bmwpoo: X6 raped a Mitsubishi Lancer and the Lancer eschewed the termination option?

I was hoping for a long time to see De Tomaso back. When I saw this couple days ago, it made me so angry. Please make cars like Pantera or Mangusta, not a diesel powered SUV.
