DE TO­MASO LONGCHAMP GTS

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING -

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.
