It’s not very often that we come across a supercar that we’ve not yet heard of. Especially one that’s fitted with a 5.5L twin turbo V12 sourced from Mercedes-Benz that’s been tuned to produce just under 900hp. It’s called the Tramontana Car and it looks like a cross between a supercar and a fighter jet thanks to the tandem seating arrangement, aggressive shapes and body lines. It’s built by Atelier Tramontana based out of Barcelona Spain and this thing is pretty wild, to say the least.
Tramontana set out to create a new family of supercars that don’t follow the conventional formula of producing a high power performance machine. They first started back in 2007 and released their first model, the Tramontana R in 2009. It was a spectacular machine. Then in 2012, they released the Tramontana XTR which was a more powerful option that brought the horsepower up over 800. Since then both models have been discontinued so that they company could focus on their latest masterpiece, they’re simply calling the Tramontana Car.
The main reason you’ve never heard of this particular car, or company, is because they only make a total of 12 vehicles per year. And interestingly each one is built specifically to the customer’s specifications, making each one a unique one of one type build. Since I didn’t know a whole lot about this particular vehicle, I had to do a lot of research and I came across some conflicting information. Some reports claimed that this Tramontana Car was “a Can-AM Spyder with an extra wheel” but that implies that this is a tiny car, but it really isn’t from what I can tell. It weighs in at just under 3,000lbs, which is quite a bit more than I first expected. But then again that’s still a featherweight considering the car has 888hp on tap.
If you’re a bit concerned about having that much power on tap, you do have other engine options. Most notably the almost bulletproof 600hp 5.2L V10, which I believe is the same engine that powers the Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8. The list of options doesn’t end there either. According to the companies website, the possibilities are somewhat endless with a whole list of high-grade materials like titanium, carbon fiber, and even gold are readily available upon request. As with most other bespoke vehicles, the Tramontana comes with a hefty price tag. With there being so much variation in each build, there’s also a variation of price. However, most reports indicate somewhere in the $500,000 range depending on what option boxes you check.
