Geneva 2011 – De Tomaso Deauville – rpmGo.com

De Tomaso Deauville

If this isn’t your first time on rpmGO, you’ve probably heard that De Tomaso is back in business and at this year’s Geneva Motor Show they’ve brought their new model, dubbed Deauville (previously known as SLC and SLS).

I have to say that the design of this car is rather boring, just like the one on the BMW 5-Series GT – when they’ve designed the car they probably had a picture of the bimmer in front of them as the resemblances are obvious. I was expecting more from Pininfarina as they are responsible for the design of this crossover. Inside the cabin, the Deauville has a plus, handcrafted interior where Alcantara, leather and carbon fiber were used, nothing out of the ordinary.

This “sport luxury sedan” (SLS) will have a four-wheel drive and is going to be offered with one of the following engines: a V6 turbocharged unit that will develop 300 hp, a more powerful V8 that cranks out 550 hp and a diesel V6 that will output 250 ponies.

The De Tomaso Deavuille will hit the showrooms this September and my guess is that nobody will buy it. They should have stick with the old recipe, like the Mangusta and the Pantera, those were some great cars while this is just a 5-Series GT clone, and a bad one I’m afraid.
