Written By:

Italian supercar manufacturer Automobili Turismo e Sport (ATS) has revealed its first ever supercar in over 50 years in the form of the GT at the 2017 Salon Prive. The ATS GT is currently limited to just 12 launch edition cars each carrying a price tag of $1,150,000 (Rs 7.35 crore).

The new ATS GT is powered by a 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine producing 650bhp and 678Nm of torque. ATS will offer owners an upgrade that ups the engine's output to 700bhp and 750Nm of torque all of which is sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed twin-clutch automatic gearbox.

With the upgrade package selected, the ATS GT sprints from 0-60mph (96.5kph) in just 3 seconds, 0-120mph (193.1kph) in 9.9 seconds and onward to a top speed of 332kph.

The ATS GT is offered with three driving modes - Viaggio (road), Sport and Corsa (track) which tweak the suspension, gearshift speed and power output of the engine.

The new ATS GT is inspired by the original ATS 2500 GT from the 60s and the car's unveiling comes just a few days after an ATS 2500 GTS won the prestigious "Rolex - Best of Show - The Quail" award during the famous Monterey Classic Car Week in California.

The interiors of the car are done up in Nubuck leather but ATS will allow customers to customise the ATS GT in any way they want to make twelve unique cars.

DriveSpark Thinks!

The ATS GT marks the revival of a famous Italian supercar marque which was formed after the great walk out at Ferrari which saw numerous Ferrari designers and engineers walk out on the company after clashing with its founder, Enzo Ferrari. To see the brand come back to life after 50 years of nothingness is brilliant and let's hope the company does a lot better than it did in those three crazy years in the 60s.
