The Auto Sportiva 2012 is a study by Paolo Martin that envisions a mid-engine coupé with a design inspired by the De Tomaso brand.

The Auto Sportiva 2012 (sportscar in Italian) by Paolo Martin is deliberately inspired by the original Pantera De Tomaso in terms of styling cues, proportions and DNA.

The car – currently still under development – is based on the Audi R8 and is powered by a mid-mounted V8 engine.

Paolo Martin also created a “Dream Car” variant, with scissor doors and lower side windows in “Balistic Lexan” which allow to directly see the road, increasing the driving pleasure and feel.

The study was commissioned by a private collector who wanted an affordable yet exclusive one-off supercar.
