The ATS GT Is The New Italian Supercar In Town

| |

ATS Automobili revealed its new GT supercar during the Salon Prive in the UK.

53 years after the company stopped producing road cars, ATS returns with a very limited supercar called simply the GT. The relaunched company says they will make just 12 units of their new creation, each reportedly priced at $1,150,000.

Built on a carbon tub, the new ATS GT is powered by a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Although the company doesn’t reveal who supplied the powertrain, it’s not that hard to connect the dots just by observing the pictures.

The twin-turbo V8 is producing 650hp as standard, with ATS offering an optional upgrade to 700hp. Combined with a dry weight of 1,300kg (2,866lbs), the ATS GT hits 60mph from a standstill in 3 seconds flat while 120mph arrive in 9.9 seconds. Top speed is more than 206mph.

The cabin is covered in Nubuck leather and features an ultra-thin TFT screen with an aluminum surround behind the steering wheel and a central touchscreen for other functions. ATS has added Google’s 3D navigation system with full screen maps and a wireless charging function among others.

The new ATS Automobili is backed by Daniele Maritan and Emanuele Bomboi, with the company having established a production unit and a Centro Stile in close proximity of Torino in Italy.
