This new technology, developed and patented by IAI (Innovation in Auto Industry) a holding which controls the De Tomaso group, enables a significant reduction in terms of time and investments necessary to design a car as the number of moulds is reduced to a few dozens.

De Tomaso Deauville finds its place in the new niche sector of the "Sport Luxury Sedan". The distintive features developed by the team of the De Tomaso Centro Stile, in close collaboration with Pininfarina, make it a comfortable and sporty car, with a sleek and harmonious outline and high performance with maximum safety.

The style at the heart of the De Tomaso Deauville is inspired by the highest canons of modernity and innovation thanks to the implementation of UNIVIS technology seamlessly combined with some exterior details reflecting the distinctive characteristics of De Tomaso's history.

The front view is marked by the distinctive large radiator cowling which expresses fighting spirit and sportsmanship. Other design details, such as the hexagonal shape of the radiator grill, the cut of the windscreen and the headlights, recall the De Tomaso cars of the past. Another trait d'union may be traced in the car's design: the three top wings of the radiator cowling which are mirrored in the headlights and then continue along the lateral air vent and on the taillights.

The Deauville is characterized by space frame bodywork with a chassis made entirely from aluminium allowing excellent results in terms of weight, rigidity and safety.

The Deauville, despite being a sports car, strikes for being surprisingly roomy, comfortable for those in the driving seat and for the luxuriousness of its interior.

The team of the De Tomaso Style Centre have dedicated particular interest and attention to the design of the interiors of the De Tomaso Deauville. The car interiors are built and assembled entirely by the De Tomaso craftsmen using only luxury quality materials such as leather, carbon and Alcantara.

The finishes and the seams of the upholstery are crafted by the skilled workers of De Tomaso and the completely manual assembly is a guarantee of the quality which testifies to the past and future "Made in Italy" manufacturing excellence.

The development of the De Tomaso Deauville model is centred around the valorisation of the concept of "Made in Italy" manufacturing, refreshing and refining those features of beauty and craftsmanship which belong to Italy's manufacturing history.

In each stage of the daily work carried out by De Tomaso skilled staff, these two concepts come to life: all cars are "custom-made" and the assembly of the finer details is the handiwork of specialised De Tomaso craftsmen.

From a conceptual point of view it is like reliving the work cycle of the Florentine Renaissance, in which the technical-practical approach of man is at the centre of the manufacturing process while the machines which sustain it are man's natural appendages.

De Tomaso Deauville is built following this "Renaissance" approach: the added value supplied by each action of the skilled staff amounts to much more than the value resulting from the standardised design reproduced by machinery.

Each De Tomaso Deauville is a unique item which stands alone.
