De Tomaso

De Tomaso (De Tomaso Automobili Ltd.) – since 2009.  Previously known as De Tomaso Modena Spa, the Italian vehicle manufacturing company was originally founded by Argentinian Alejandro de Tomaso in Modena in 1959.  Over the years, the company has had various owners, including a major stake by Ford in 1971 to 1974, and more recently a Hong Kong based company Ideal Team Ventures in 2019. De Tomaso owned Maserati between 1976 and 1993 and motorcycle company Moto Guzzi from 1973 to 1993. The colours in the company logo are from the Argentinian flag and the “T” is a cattle branding symbol of the estate where Alejandro grew up.
