Donto P1 - Argentinian competitor for KTM X-BOW
Everyone is getting in on the sports car action! The most recent out-of-the-blue sports car to come out of a random country was the GTA Spano that came out of Spain. Now, Donto Motor Company has announced the debut of the P1 - a sports car that will take on models like the b>KTM X-BOW and the Ariel Atom.
The P1 is a lightweight two-seater with a removable roof that will not only be race-ready, but will also be able to cruise out on the street. Made to be imported to Europe, the P1 weighs less than 700 kilos and was built using a split body with a floating exosjeleton like an invertebrae, according to Donto designer Lucas López. The P1 will utilize an engine borrowed from a German model such as the Volkswagen sourced 1.8T that produces 180 HP.
The chassis for the P1 was designed by renowned chassis builder, Hector "Tito" Perez, and is already approved by the FIA. Perez has about 400 vehicles under his belt spanning from Formula Renault, road rally cars, and touring cars.
Donto P1 will be priced at around $55,000 and will be built in limited numbers. The P1’s main target will be Europe, but Donto wants to make it available in all markets.
