A new luxury sports car has been developed in the Costa Brava, Spain. It mixes old timers philosophy and air craft technology. The new A.D. Tramontana starts his own history at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2005. Seeing an A.D. Tramontana on the high street, however, will not be easy, as the European company will produce only 12 units a year.

The Tramontana is not just another luxury sports car, it combines exclusivity and differentiation with the best materials and a handmade production. A.D. Tramontana is a rescue of certain elements of the long-forgotten classical models. The other main source of inspiration for the Costa Brava-based company is no other than fighter planes, for example lateral intake vents and, especially, the tandem-like position of the two seats, that allows the perfection of the equilibrium. Lovers of sports cars will appreciate the perfect weight symmetry offered by the position of the seats. Each unit will be unique, as the production process will include a large amount of customer-ordered specifications, from customized inscriptions on the chassis to an ergonomical study of the client. But this is not all, as the car will also have a powerful mechanical selling point, its central V12 engine with more than 500 hp.

The chassis is made of aeronautical aluminium and has been developed from scratch, contributing to a new structural system that combines a non-deformable area with eight impact-absorption areas. These characteristics offer such a safety level that is comparable to a professional racing car. The main (most important) material for the body is carbon fibre, although one may/might point out that the insertions (used) are with the finest materials in the world (wood, stainless steel and gold) worked thoroughly. The wood, for example, is treated with very ancient Japonese method, URUSHI (natural lacquer).
