De Tomaso Deauville (Ghia) 1971-1985
By the time the DeTomaso Pantera was introduced in 1971, DeTomaso Automobili was already taking steps to flesh out its model line. The design house "Ghia" was selected to design and provide body construction for two new cars, the Deauville 4-door sedan and the Longchamp 2-door coupe.

Tom Tjaarda was chosen as the lead stylist for both. The Deauville was designed to deliver high-performance luxury transportation for four. Tjaarda developed a flowing-yet-muscular design, handsome from any angle, and retained the inverted trapezoidal grill concept first seen on the Mangusta.

The chassis, a full monocoque unit, employed fully independent suspension, the rear system featuring inboard disc brakes and dual coil-over shock absorber units.

Twin fuel tanks and twin fuel pumps were fitted, with a dash-mounted switch and gauge so the driver could select which tank was being employed. The first Deauvilles were built in 1972. For power the Deauville relied on the same 5.7 litre (351 cu. in.) Ford Cleveland V-8 as employed by the Pantera, rated at 300 horsepower (DIN) and mounted in front for this application.

Backing the engine was a Ford 3-speed automatic transmission; no manual transmission was offered. The Deauville is noted not only for its on-road performance, but its interior comfort.

The comfortable yet supportive seats could be had in a variety of leather and leather/cloth combinations, and the dash and door panels were wood trimmed. Full instrumentation, factory air-conditioning, power window lifts, power steering and a tilt steering wheel were all standard.

The centre console extended into the rear of the passenger compartment, providing heat and air to the rear occupants. Approximately 240 were constructed, making it the second-rarest production DeTomaso (next to the Vallelunga) and the only 4-door sedan built to date by the company.

Алехандро Де Томазо имел общительный характер и никогда не отказывался от хороших идей со стороны, используя их по своему усмотрению. Классическим примером тому стал седан Deauville, появившийся в 1971 г.

Модель Deauville, за исключением кузова, была типичным творением De Tomaso: полностью независимая подвеска на сдвоенных рычагах и 5,8-литровый двигатель V8. Внешне же автомобиль походил на Jaguar серии "XJ"

Де Томазо хотел создать собственную альтернативу "XJ6" под необычным названием, с лучшей репутацией и менее сложной ходовой частью. Поэтому он использовал тот же двигатель Ford V8, что и для модели Pantera, а также механическую коробку передач ZF или автоматическую Ford. Фирма Ghia создала жесткий каркас несущего кузова, подвеска спереди и сзади была независимой на сдвоенных треугольных рычагах.

Это был скоростной и элегантный автомобиль с отличной управляемостью, который не продавали в больших количествах. Де Томазо никогда не организовывал постоянной дилерской сети вне США, а Deauville никогда не продавался в США. Подобно автомобилям компании Iso, с которыми машины De Tomaso конкурировали в начале 70-х гг., игнорирование Deauville рынка США дало о себе знать. По сравнению с Ferrari или Lamborghini машина, как источник прибыли, не удалась. Максимальный объем производства составил 46 штук в 1972 г., к концу 70-х гг. было построено всего 208 автомобилей.

Тем не менее, Deauville собирали до 1988 г. К этому времени мощность двигателя снизили до 270 л.с., было продано 350 автомобилей. Если бы Longchamp не был создан на укороченном шасси Deauville, a Maserati Kyalami не стала бы в свою очередь развитием Longchamp, история Deauville закончилась бы намного раньше. Еще одной неожиданностью стало создание модели Quattroporte III на основе Kyalami. Этот 4-дверный седан на платформе Deauville имел всего лишь на 2,5 см меньшую колесную базу и ту же подвеску.
