AD Tramontana

Nostalgia, love, cutting edge technology, engineering, pursuit of perfection and hand-crafting. This is AD Tramontana.

Some of the following information has been extracted from the Press Release:

At the beginning of the twentieth century, the Spanish automotive industry was created and a tradition of excellence and superior craftsmanship was born. Today, one hundred years later, a group of young engineers has developed a new automobile instilled with these same values. Building upon the foundations of these first concepts and designs, a.d. Tramontana has created a custom-made, hand-crafted vehicle that is distinguished by its unique character.

With a glance towards the past and a vision of the future, with passion, initiative and perseverance, a.d. Tramontana has reinvented the automotive industry in Spain and throughout the world. The Tramontana embodies a revolutionary concept that incorporates the design qualities of the iconic Italian sports cars and the mechanical expertise of the classic British models. Tramontana has brought together technical precision, personalized design, and superior craftsmanship using only the finest materials. The Tramontana is unique because its design combines visually stunning lines and personalized accents with powerful machinery and high safety standards.

The car is custom-designed and built according to the personal requirements of each client. This is done first by conducting an ergonomical study of the measurements of the driver, then by using the materials of his or her choice and, finally, by differentiating each unit with an engraving of a poetic verse in the chassis of the car. These characteristics assure that each Tramontana is a unique work of art modelled on the specific desires of the client.

It is made of aeronautical aluminium and has been developed from scratch, contributing to a new structural system that combines a non-deformable area with eight impact-absorption areas. These characteristics offer such a safety level that is comparable to a professional racing car. The main (most important) material is from carbon fibre, although one may/might point out that the insertions (used) are with the finest materials in the world (wood, stainless steel and gold) worked thoroughly. The wood, for example, is treated with very ancient Japanese method, URUSHI (natural lacquer). Not only is the Tramontana visually attractive, it is also an extremely powerful piece of machinery, including a central V12 bi-turbo engine and over 500 horsepower (From Mercedes).
