De Tomaso Deauville 5.8 V8 Best Example One of 7 Series 2 cars in the UK

Here we have a very special and rare car indeed. An original right hand drive De Tomaso Deauville. One of only 7 series 2 cars in the UK. You may have never seen one they're that rare. Ours is probably the best example for sale as we speak. Having undergone a full restoration and completed in 2010 our example has only covered 3500 miles since. The restoration cost over an eye watering £100k and took 5 years to complete. Completed and commissioned by Three point four workshop. They are the number one and only place in the UK for restoring De Tomaso.
If you’re looking to add to your future collection of classic cars this is it! This example belongs in a museum the shear workmanship that is involved to get to this quality maybe never to be recreated. The more you read about the brand De Tomaso the more you see their passion and unique style. Possibly the most understated car manufacturer in the world! Fitted with a 5.8 V8 Ford Cleveland this car sounds fantastic! There is nothing else like it we have seen to date.
The engine has been totally rebuilt, balanced and fitted with several power upgrades. Automatic transmission fitted with an uprated valve block for crisper changes. The standard differential replaced with 2.88 ratio power-lock, for better performance and cruising MPG.
Since being with ourselves, we have MOT'd, serviced and carried out a carb refresh. This example is running perfect and a joy to drive and own.
A rare, stunning and exclusive sports saloon which would be the perfect addition to any car collection. Finished in burgundy metallic matched with original tan leather interior.
Brief overview of the company.
De Tomaso Modena SpA was an Italian car-manufacturing company. It was founded by the Argentine-born Alejandro de Tomaso (1928–2003) in Modena in 1959. It originally produced various prototypes and racing cars, including a Formula One car for Frank Williams' team in 1970. The company went on to develop and produce both sports cars and luxury vehicles, most notably the Ford-powered Italian-bodied Mangusta and Pantera gran turismos. From 1976 to 1993 De Tomaso owned Italian sports car maker Maserati, and was responsible for producing cars including the Biturbo, the Kyalami, Quattroporte III, Karif, and the Chrysler TC. De Tomaso also owned motorcycle company Moto Guzzi from 1973 to 1993.
