At the 2011 Geneva Motor Show Gumpert announced a new two-seater Tourer model to its lineup, and now the first images of the production version Tornante have finally surfaced on the internet. A big surprise for everyone considering that just a few months ago the company was facing insolvency.
The production version Tornante looks a little bit updated when compared to the concept unveiled last year. It gets a louvred rear window, horizontal exhaust pipes and taillights inspired by the Lamborghini Gallardo. Other updates include a new front lip spoiler and redesigned headlamps.
No details have been provided on the engine to be used in the production version, but we expect to see the same engine seen in the concept: a bi-turbo V8 with an output of 690 HP mated to a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox controlled by paddle shifters. The concept was capable to hit a top speed of 186 mph, so we expect at least the same performance figures in the production version.
