The work on Project P became known in 2019, when two camouflaged cars – Apollo Intensa Emozione and, presumably, a new version of the legendary De Tomaso Pantera – appeared on the streets of Geneva, where another international auto show was held.

It is still unknown whether the new car will be a restaurant or a modernized version of an Italian sports car, but in the photographs its similarity with the original is obvious. True, according to Western journalists, under the film on the teasers, a real Pantera of the 1970s style is hidden. It is known that the development of the car involved in the people responsible for the hypercar Intensa Emozione.
