Beautiful Photos of the 1971 DeTomaso Pantera

The De Tomaso Pantera is a mid-engine sports car produced by Italian automobile manufacturer De Tomaso from 1971 to 1993. Italian for "Panther", the Pantera was the automaker's most popular model, with over 7,000 manufactured over its twenty-year production run.

The first 1971 Pantera models were powered by a 5.8 L (351 cu in) Ford Cleveland V8 engine having a power output of 335 PS (246 kW; 330 hp). The high torque provided by the Ford engine reduced the need for excessive gear changing at low speeds: this made the car much less demanding to drive in urban conditions than many of the locally built offerings.

The 1971 Pantera could accelerate to 97 km/h (60 mph) in 5.5 seconds according to Car and Driver.

Here are some beautiful photos of the 1971 DeTomaso Pantera.

  1. A beautiful car sold at Ford dealerships, no less, which was a good idea since the Pantera had a Ford 351 under the hood, er, bonnet. In the 1970's all I could do was drool over the occasional Pantera you got to see from time to time. Few around since while having a comparatively dependable Ford motor, it was next to impossible to service, many mechanics simply pulled the engine out to service it and then did everything at once. Seems worthwhile to at least bring the body design back for another try -
