The Tramontana R won’t exactly win any beauty contests, but what it lacks in overall physical appeal, it more than makes up for in power. It pushes out 720 HP from its V12 engine, bringing the supercar to a top speed of 201 mph, and now it has a little brother that exceeds even those expectations. Tramontana has announced the development of a new supercar that will deliver no less than 888 HP.
The first details revealed by the Spanish company suggest that this new supercar will be called the XTR (Xtreme sensations) and will feature radical chassis modifications and will clearly be oriented towards pure performance. That performance will come out of the same V12 engine found in its older sibling, but tweaked to pump out a total of 888 HP with the use of a new, ultra-rapid competition gearbox. Tramontana will also be offering additional aerodynamic elements to optimize the vehicle’s performance at high speeds.
Expect to see the new Tramontana XTR launched by the end of 2012, but get those speedy hands and checkbooks ready, only 12 units will be built a year and each will set you back $514,000.
