A large four-door sedan that was produced by De Tomasco and first exhibited at the Turin Motor Show in 1970. This car was powered by a 351 in3 (5763 cc) Ford Cleveland V8 engine that was rated at 300 hp. It had a ZF 5-speed manual transmission, and a 3-speed automatic transmission was available as an option. The car had a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph) and featured styling similar to that of the Jaguar XJ.
The Deauville had an independent rear suspension similar to that used by Jaguar, and ventilated discs in all four wheels. It shares its chassis with the Maserati Quattroporte III.
A total of 244 Deauvilles were produced. There were three variants: the early series 1 (1970–1974), late series 1 (1975–1977) and the series 2 (1978–1985). A Deauville station wagon was made for Mr. De Tomaso’s wife. Two armoured Deauvilles were also produced, one for the Belgian Royal Family and the other for the Italian government (The latter is on display in the Museo delle Auto della Polizia di Stato in Rome.)
