The Vallelunga was an extremely rare mid-engined sportscar produced by De Tomaso from 1965 through 1967. The Vallelunga was based on De Tomaso's Formula One racing technology, and the spider version was first shown as a concept car at the Turin Motor Show in 1963. It entered production (by Ghia) two years later, with 53 coupe models built.
The Vallelunga became one of the first mid-engined cars ever built when it entered production. It served as an inspiration to Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Lotus who all introduced mid-engined cars within a few years of the De Tomaso.
