    1988 De Tomaso's Pantera GT5-S Test Drive



    An uncomplicated supercar, the Pantera was a charming amalgam of Detroit grunt and Italian glam. Launched in 1971 and sold in North America by Fordís Lincoln-Mercury Dealers, it was powered by a mid mounted Ford 5.7 liter V8 that could muster159mph and belt to 60 mph in under six seconds.

    The Pantera sure didn't age gracefully...........it was always tronced by the Corvette in Motorsports. A few of them were competitive in IMSA racing.

    I see these cars every so often at a local cars, and coffee and with big displacement Cleveland V8 power they are quite fleet of foot.
    I want a car so violent that the mere thought of full throttle would cause a heart attack. That actually going wide open throttle in would result in nothing less than instant death!
