Legendary Marque ATS Automobili To Make World Premiere Of New ATS GT At Salon Privé  •ATS GT supercar to make global debut at Salon Privé 2017

•Return of one of Italy's rarest and most revered marques to the international stage

•Initial limited production of just 12 to be made

Italian automotive constructor, ATS (Automobili Turismo e Sport) will showcase its all-new supercar to the public at the UK's leading luxury automotive event, Salon Privé, on Thursday 31st August.

The global premiere will launch the legendary brand's new GT supercar more than 50 years after the company was formed by Carlo Chiti and Giotto Bizarrini, as well as other significant members of Scuderia Ferrari, who left the great team in 1961 in protest of Enzo Ferrari's actions. Created with the aim of beating Ferrari at its own game, and targeting both road and race-going cars, ATS built a road-going sports car and a Formula One race car in 1963.

Visitors to Salon Privé will be the very first to see the all-new ATS GT supercar at Blenheim Palace. Returning in spectacular style, the ATS GT blends modern-day technology, engineering and timeless style with a V8 twin-turbo coupled with a seven-speed, dual-clutch gearbox. Hand-built using lightweight composites, the all-new ATS GT is a modern interpretation of its forebears, of which just 12 launch edition models will be made initially.

'This is a pivotal day for ATS and our new supercar,' said ATS Automobili Turismo e Sport owner Daniele Maritan. 'We use words such as challenge, adventure, beauty and passion to represent the values that were shared among all the founders of ATS in 1962. Today we find the same values in the talented people bringing back this historically important brand. Salon Privé was the obvious destination for us to launch our luxury and historically important supercar this Summer, and we can't wait to show it off to the public.'

Styled by Emanuele Bomboi, ATS's chief designer, and hand-built at its Italian factory, the ATS GT uses carbon fibre extensively in its bodywork, interior and chassis, to create a supercar that is light in weight yet boasts great strength and rigidity. Designed to not only drive like a striking supercar, but to look like one too, Bomboi penned the ATS GT to evoke the spirit of its predecessors with every surface carved and shaped to perfection.

With an initial production run of just 12 cars confirmed, the new ATS GT supercar is reserved solely for the most discerning and exclusive collectors. The reveal event will take place on Thursday 31st August, the inaugural day of Salon Privé, as the company proudly returns to the limited-production supercar business after a five-decade absence. Displaying the marque's heritage, an original ATS 2500 GTS will line up alongside the new GT, providing a rare opportunity to see the marque's past and future together for the first time.
