de Tomaso Deauville Late Series 2

The de Tomaso Deauville late series 2 entered the market somewhere in 1978. Again it wasn’t officially launched as such, but gradually evolved into this new version. The late second series started with the same interior as the early 2nd series, but from 1980 posh full leather interior with electric seats as option. The same interior also featured in period Maserati Quattroportes, Bi-Turbos, and the Bitter SC. Other extras were the digital clock, central door locking and electric side mirrors. The main change of the last series of the Deauville was that the engine was moved about 10 centimeters towards the passenger cabine in order to achive a better weight distribution. The ventilation louvres were maintained for better engine cooling, but the car also got twin cooling vents. The rectangle de Tomaso Logo in the grille was replaced by a large Isis symbol resembling the letter T. From 1980 the de Tomaso also got the robust thicker chrome bumpers with black plastic caps.
The late 2nd series Deauville was produced roughly from 1978 to production end in 1985 and can be recognised with the last 4 serial number digits between #2000 and #2164 (last car produced).
