Gumpert TornanteGumpert Tornante – such name was received by the car – was one of the most expected premieres among super cars. To develop the car Roland Gumpert, this time drawn the famous Italian bodybuilder studio Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera whose nameplates also decorate the car. However, design Gumpert Tornante has turned out heavy, at all deprived of the Italian elegance and refinement. Certainly, the car is in own way beautiful and original, but, looking at it, hardly possible to believe that the suit to it was sewed by the Italian couturiers. The length a super car makes 4,47 m, width — 1,97 m, height — 1,12 m, a wheelbase — 2,70 m. Gumpert Tornante falls into the same segment that Ferrari 458 Italia and Porsche 911. However, for the reason short-run Gumpert Tornante is unlikely to compete directly with them, because it will cost many times more, so he'll have to play their own league.

The car is created under classical recipes supercar structure — a framework from chromium-molybdenum steels on which body panels from composites are fixed. "Сhromium-molybdenum skeleton" weighs only 100 kg and differs impressing ruggedness on torsion — 40 000 Nm/g. Before a rear axle take place 4,2-liter biturbomotor Audi capacity of 700 h.p. (900 Nanometers) with which is aggregated six-step sequential check point. Box, by the way, differs phenomenal rate of fire and switches drives of all for 40 milliseconds. On first hundred conquest will leave about three seconds, and the maximum speed will exceed 300 km/h. The car is put in low-profile rubber Michelin Pilot Super Sport by dimension 265/35 ZR19 in front and 345/30 ZR20 behind. Depending on equipment weight Gumpert Tornante will fluctuate within 1300-1400 kg.

All of the above characteristics yet are approximate. Exact figures aren't present for one simple reason — in Geneva, Roland Gumpert has brought just made a life-size model of a supercar. The first pre-series sample who leaves on tests will be shortly ready. In case of interest from potential buyers Roland Gumpert is ready to develop car manufacture next year. The price yet isn't called, but, considering exclusivity of the car, it is possible to assume that it hardly will be less than 300 000 – 400 000 euros.
