THE DE TOMASO PANTERA

Ford Motor Company was De Tomaso's partner at the time of the Pantera's introduction in 1971 and thus the Pantera, like the Mangusta, relied on Ford V-8 power. Styled by Tom Tjaarda at Carrozzeria Ghia, the stunning coupé body was in fact built by Vignale -both companies being part of De Tomaso's empire in the early 1970s.

The first major revision of the Pantera's body style occurred in 1980 with the introduction of the GT5 which, with its deep front air dam and delta-wing rear spoiler, represented one of the earliest examples of these aerodynamic devices being applied to passenger car design. Introduced for 1985, the GT5-S incorporated further revisions to the bodywork while its interior was significantly upgraded, rivalling that of many a luxury limousine.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This GT5-S was used by the Shelby team as the testbed for the upcoming Dodge Viper. Throughout its life, the car saw numerous powertrains and suspension setups during testing. Carroll Shelby was pushing for the viper to be powered by a twin turbo 360ci V8 engine, which had shown great promise in this GT5-S. The twin turbo setup looked like it would be the powertrain of choice, until Dodge ultimately decided to move forward with the new V10 powertrain which they thought would give the car a more exotic appeal.

Today, the car is void of a powertrain, but its unique history and rarity, make it a great candidate for resurrection. Its next owner can experiment with the powertrain of their choice and build the car to their own tastes.

Although the car is sold without an engine, it does come with a Shelby vehicle authenticity certificate certifying that it was owned by Carroll Shelby, something that no other GT5-S can claim.
