Car Description

Over 7260 De Tomaso Panteras were built during their 21 year run from 1970 - 1991. Automotive enthusiasts still mention the Pantera with a look of awe.

The De Tomaso Pantera was Ford's answer to the venerable Chevy Corvette. The Pantera is a mid-engine car and was designed by Lee Lacocca who had already gained fame for previous car designs.The mid-engine design improved the vehicles weight distribution and handling while the down pointed nose, wheel flairs and aggressive looking tires and wheels gave the Pantera a race ready look that helped to make the Pantera a symbol of motor racing.

Pantera continued to grow and change over the years giving rise to several new models like the Pantera L, Pantera GTS, Pantera GT4 of which only 6 were produced, Pantera GT5 and finally the Pantera GT5-s

The Pantera races in several different forums like the Le Mans,Imola, Hockenheim, the Mulsanne circuit, and 6-hours of Vallelunga. Two of the vehicles came off the line almost race ready, the 1972 Pantera group 3 and the group 4.

In 1972 De Tomaso made plans to introduce the Pantera in the US market. To meet US mandates several changes and additions were made, one of the most notable was front and rear safety bumpers, these were painted black to keep the Pantera's aggressive look. For the US market only one option was offered, a AM-FM stereo radio.

Many years later and the De Tomaso Pantera is still considered one of the greats in Sports car history. A legend both on and off the racetrack.
