The Pantera is a very rare unusual car which was designed by American born designer Tom Tjaarda who worked Italian design firm Ghia and was equipped with a 5.8L Cleveland Ford Engine. I'm the third owner of this car which is documented from day 1 when it was bought in New Jersey. This particular engine in this car was modified and has close to 460HP which makes it fun to ride, originally the car had 330HP. Back in the 1970s the Panteras were called Ferrari killer (V8 version) as they were much more powerful:), Pantera could accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.5 seconds according to Car and Driver.
Engine was upgraded.
