De Tomaso used the Goodwood Festival of Speed to unveil the new P72 and it appears not everyone is a fan.

While the car is pretty stunning, it also looks a bit familiar. James Glickenhaus believes there’s a good reason for this as he suggested the model is nothing more than a copy.

In a tweet posted by Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, he accused De Tomaso of putting “tracing paper over our P3/4” and then pasting “much” of the design from the P4/5. He also accused the company of stealing interior design details from Pagani.

“They put tracing paper over our P3/4, pasted on much of our P4/5, stole an interior from Horacio, pumped it up like a Vargas Girl and turned it into Anime. I see Koons not Caravaggio.”-Jim Glickenhaus

He summed up his sentiments by saying “I see Koons not Caravaggio.” This appears to be a reference toAmerican artist Jeff Koons and Italian painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio.

The tweet also quoted Jesse Glickenhaus as giving Google’s definition of a copy as “A thing made to be similar or identical to another.”

We’ve reached out to De Tomaso for comment, but the P72 does share a number of similarities to the P4/5. The whole front end looks like an evolved version of the P4/5 and canopy is also similar. However, there a bigger differences further back as the P72 features more flamboyant bodywork, larger intakes and unique side skirts.

While we’ll update this article when / if we heard back from De Tomaso, but the company has previously said the P72 was designed by Jowyn Wong and inspired by the P70. That car was a joint project between Alejandro de Tomaso and Carroll Shelby. The partnership frayed and was eventually dissolved “on the eve of the car’s completion.” De Tomaso pressed forward with development and tapped Ghia to help him complete it. The finished model was eventually displayed at the 1965 Turin Motor Show as the Ghia-De Tomaso Sport 5000.

I knew it looked familiar, but couldn't put my finger on it.
