DE TOMASO LONGCHAMP GTS
Offering the unassuming presence favoured by Bristol, the De Tomaso Longchamp was, in many ways, a serious, if rather less subtle rival to the British Euro-American hybrid. De Tomaso favoured Ford engines over Chrysler units, and the Longchamp offered sophisticated low-key looks, reasonable passenger accommodation and a colossal boot, along with running costs far lower than those of a Ferrari. This particular car looks as though it could benefit from some minor cosmetic attention – particularly a tired-looking driver’s seat – but is a genuinely rare find that’s well worth a closer look. A potential Italian GT bargain.
