Nuttiest hypercar you never heard of...

...well, at least I never heard of the Tramontana. It does qualify for insane though and not just because of the looks. Something like an Ariel Atom pushed by a 720bhp twin turbo V12. Except it's not at all like an Ariel, it has a full carbon fiber chassis (and "bodywork" naturally) and given the 2700lbs weight, I'm guessing that's a Mercedes V12.

Engine 12 cylinder in V 60º biturbo with intercooler

720 Hp - 529 kW at 5.750 rpm

Max. Torque 900Nm at 3.500 rpm
920Nm at 4.000 rpm
Weight / power 1,7 kg / Hp
Diameter of cylinder ∅82 mm
Displacement 5.513 cm3
Compression 9:1
Turbo pressure 1.3 bar
Lubrication system Dry sump
Fuel Unleaded 98 Octane

Full specs in .pdf here

And for your consideration, the following from a.d.Tramontana:

"Chassis Number: Each unit of the Tramontana will be differentiated with an engraved
verse in the chassis of a poem written by Carme Pagès, Catalan poet, that refers to the wind tramontana."
That must make the service appointment call amusing: "thank you sir, and may I have your serial number please..."

Anyway, we love to promote irrational insanity so, enjoy the very bombastically over produced clips and pictures.


  1. So, what exactly DOES it cost to license a U2 song these days...?


  2. probably less than a set of Magnesium carbon fiber 20" wheels ;0)
