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.

    Initially I thought Cadillac is making a GT version of their ATS, but didn’t know what is Italy has to do with it.. then I saw the pics, and could’t care more!

    Interior looks pretty good , only nice thing I can say….

  • anonymous

    It’s a 12C. An early generation 12C since it uses touch-sensitive sensors for opening the door.

  • Fine-Tuning Needed

    I like the looks, but he body panel fitment is off all over the place. A shame for the money they are asking for it.

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Would do well if priced at ~$100k.
    As is it is stillborn.
    Wish them the best.

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    McLaren, Ferrari and FORD may have a little something to say.

    But still…

    ATS has been making road cars for a few years now, actually. Plus, the 2500GT has always been fairly priced, between 100 and 200 thousand euros… Are you sure this will cost one million euros?

      There’s also something called 300 Leggera: it looks quite a lot like a Cobra kit car and it only costs around 50 grand… Many websites report the 1 million price tag for the new GT, but it just seems bonkers to me.

        You’re not alone. The weirdest part is that they avoid to name the car underneath but I think it has to do something with that price tag

          Hopefully Quattroruote will do a detailed article (maybe with some interviews too) about this and we’ll know more…

      Do they actually made the new ATS 2500 GT? I’ve seen a few “official” photo but never spotted customer one… especially when the window are limo-tint level, I’d thought that’s just an empty shell.

      There’s one being shown at Top Marques 2015 but again, the same shell from official photo.

      • fabri99

        Well, I believe they actually make them upon request. I’m not sure at all, but italian magazines have been talking about it as if it were to be a real thing.

    Rebody of MP4 at silly money

  • S3XY

    Lol. Million dollar replica gasser in 2017. Lol.

  • Stephen Baxter

    Thats insane money for what looks like a 12c kit car. I do like the aesthetic of the interior, some of the pieces and the assembly look questionable though 🙂

  • Tumbi Mtika

    NICE MCLAREN.

    What a f*cking waste…

  • BlackDiamond

    RIP…

  • Six Thousand Times

    Gonna have to say no.

    About as generic a supercar shape as I’ve come across. Don’t care what this is billed as, its rather dull in its final form. When one considers a boutique luxury product with no true brand heritage or assurance of quality, it is usually because of some standout characteristic, like unabashedly beautiful design. This is not that and, I can’t see why a buyer would choose this over any of the standard bearers in this class outside of curiosity.
