Production-ready version of the Tramontana will come across the mountains from Spain (the name means "across the mountains") to the Geneva Auto Show next week.

COSTA BRAVA, Spain Just about exactly one year ago, Inside Line reported on a prototype of the Tramontana that was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. At this year's event, the production version is set to appear.

A.d. Tramontana is a newcomer on the exotic sports-car scene. It has been developing a quirky two-seater roadster for three years now and recently announced that the production version is ready. It will feature a 5.5-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 engine churning out 720 hp (825 Nm). The ultralow car only 47.2 inches tall weighs a mere shade over 2,000 pounds and has a length of 192.9 inches. The claimed top speed is 186 mph.

Power to weight: 1.6 kg/hp
Max speed: +300 k/h
Acceleration: 0 to 100 km/h in under 4 seconds
Weight: 1150 kg

Most of the features on production Tramontanas will be custom suited to the tastes of individual buyers. Prices have not been announced yet.

What this means to you? The super sports-car scene will have one more newcomer, for those who don't want to see themselves coming and going.
