Gumpert Tornante production version leaked
Gumpert Tornante production trademark design sketches leaked 18.12.2012
Slightly different than the concept
The German sports car maker Gumpert has recently emerged from a provisional insolvency with new orders. Now, freshly filed trademark design drawings of the Gumpert Tornante production version have surfaced.
Looking slightly different than the Touring concept shown last year in Geneva, the production model gets a louvred rear window, horizontal exhaust pipes and Lamborghini Gallardo-inspired taillights. In addition, the front lip spoiler seems slightly updated and the headlight design has also been modestly revised.
The concept came with a bi-turbo V8 engine producing 690 hp (515 kW) which was enough for a top speed of 186 mph (300 km/h). Power was transmitted to wheels via a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox controlled by paddle shifters. For wheels, it had 19-inch alloys up front and 20-inch rims at the back, wrapped around in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
