So I recently heard

The absolute greatest news in current supercar events: The new De Tomaso Pantera.


I cannot bring to words how much I've wished to see those words glowing at me from an LCD screen. The god damned Pantera is coming back! I (oddly, I suppose) never really bothered with fancy Italian supercars when I was younger. I know it sounds strange, but it ill what it ill. That is, until I saw this car at a car show for Fords back in high school.

I mean just look at it!


And the best part for a muscle car obsessed 14 year old was they used the Ford 351 Cleveland. My bloods always bled blue, so to me, this was the pinnacle of exotics. And hell, they weren't even all that expensive compared to most. I remember a guy at the show saying he;'d picked up his fiery red one for just thirty grand. Well out of reach for me, and it still is, but a thirty grand car these days is a Mustang or low end 3 series. I'd Much rather have that fire breathing Pantera


It's not the fastest, craziest or most radical supercar ever made, I think that's fair to say, but it was everything I ever wanted in a car. The Pantera was perfect.

In closing, I'd like to leave with you with this fantastic video of the camo'd Pantera leaving its factory. Enjoy.




Now if only they stuff one of these bad boys in there.. hehehe...

  5. $30k for a supercar? Even back then, that would have been a good deal for an exotic. Do you know how reliable it was?
