Gumpert teases the Tornante by Touring

Gumpert has released the first teaser image of the Tornante, ahead of its unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show.

Featuring an attractive design by Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera, the bespoke supercar has an expressive front fascia with a regulator grille, aggressive air intakes, and swept-back headlights. Furthermore, the Tornante is outfitted with gull-wing doors and composite body panels.

The car will ride on an advanced chrome-molybdenum steel space frame with a carbon fiber monocoque that offers the ideal balance of strength and lightness. Additionally, the new model adopts the double-wishbone suspension and TT40e gearbox from the Apollo.

Power will be provided by a mid-mounted 4.2-liter biturbo V8 engine which produces 700 PS (515kW / 690 hp). In 2012, Gumpert will introduce an "alternative powered" variant but no word on whether it's a diesel, hybrid, or something else altogether.
