ATS or Automobili Turismo e Sport is an Italian Supercar manufacturer that was operational from 1963-1965 and launched an F1 car in hopes to beat Ferrari. We certainly don't know if they were successful enough to accomplish the feat, but what we know is that they wrapped their operations within 2 years. And now they are back again with a new Supercar.
The automaker has recently unveiled the ATS 2500 GT supercar ahead of its official launch at the Top Marques to be held in Monte Carlo. This is the first car to be launched after 50 years and has a distinctive "classic and modern” styling on the outside and a “sporty and retro” touch inside the cabin, while the performance is ought to be “worthy of a race car.”
The power to the supercar is delivered by a V8 naturally aspirated engine that generates more than 640ps of power at 10,000 rpm. The power is sent to the rear wheels via a manual or a sequential 6-speed gearbox that houses a limited slip differential. ATS claims that the 2500 GT can do 0-100 kmph in a mere 2.9 seconds, while the top speed is more than 340 kmph.
ATS also claims that the two-seater sportscar is made of a carbon fiber monocoque chassis with integrated roll cage for enhanced safety. To reduce the weight, the GT is made of aluminum under body panels while the exterior panels are all carbon.
