De Tomaso's replacement for their successful Mangusta in 1971 was the avant-garde and stylish Pantera. Maintaining the best of the ingredients from the Mangusta, including the mid-mounted 300 horsepower, Ford 351ci, V8 Cleveland engine, five-speed ZF transaxle and dramatic styling, the Pantera also added monocoque construction into the mix, the first instance of De Tomaso using this construction technique. The Pantera was produced until 1991 with the last one being delivered to a customer in 1992. It was designed by American, Tom Tjaarda, making its public debut in Modena in March 1970 and was presented at the New York Motor Show a few weeks later. Power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes and rack and pinion steering were all standard equipment on the Pantera which could accelerate from 0-60mph in an eye-watering 5.5 seconds. The cars sold well with various derivatives emerging from the factory although it is the early cars that have a certain purity ensuring they remain the most attractive and thus collectable

This stunning lefthand drive example is presented in white with a black interior, manual gearbox and air conditioning. It has been in California all its life and has recently been imported into the UK when it was registered into the present owner's name for importation purposes.  It has been dry stored since importation as part of a small private collection. The mileage is believed to be genuine and it comes with a current V5 with a MoT test certificate expiring in September 2018. This absolutely superb example of one of the most famous of all Italian muscle cars must surely be one of the finest available today. Sure to turn heads both in looks and its glorious V8 soundtrack howling at high revs or indeed burbling at low speeds, simply awesome.
