The Pantera (Italian for "Panther") was a mid-engine sports car produced by DeTomaso of Modena, Italy from 1971 to 1991. The Pantera logo included a version of Argentina's flag with a T-shaped symbol that was the brand used by De Tomaso's Argentinian cattle ranching ancestors. The car was designed at the request of Ford’s Lee Iacocca for the North American market to replace the Shelby Cobra at specially selected Lincoln/Mercury dealerships. After the Ford agreement ended in 1974 De Tomaso continued to build the car in ever-escalating forms of performance and luxury for the rest of the world. By 1985 the DeTomaso Pantera Group 5 had evolved into the upscale GT5 and GT5-S and was one of the most iconic sports car in Europe. The Pantera uni-body combined captivating coachwork designed by Ghia and a mid-engine chassis designed by DeTomaso. The Pantera had the qualities of both an Italian sports car and a muscle car, it was beautiful and at the same time brutish. In the 80’s the wide body look was "IN" and car fanatics had become infatuated with exotic Italian sports cars/supercars with the likes of the Ferrari 308 or Testarossa and of course the Lamborghini Countach. The GT5 featured the same mechanical specification and coachwork as the GTS with the addition of fiberglass flares to the wheel arches, a deep frontal air dam, ground effects side skirts, the same 10 spoke magnesium wheels and those outrageously wide Pirelli tires. In 1985 the Pantera changed to a smooth flared all steel body and this GT5-S is an example of even more rare in the rank of production. It is estimated as one of 187 GT5-S built and one of 50 legally imported into the US. The plush GT5-S interior is quite roomy and well laid out for a mid-engine car. A surprising amount of space for soft luggage is to be found in the tail behind the engine and under the nose around the inflatable mini-spare. The Pantera, powered by a Ford 351 cu in Cleveland engine produced a severely underrated 330 hp. Stock dynos over the years proved that power was more along the lines of about 385 HP. Pantera had Manual Rack and Pinion Steering and the power was transmitted to the rear wheels via the German ZF Five-Speed Manual Transaxle which is the same transaxle that had been utilized in Ford's Le Mans winning GT40 race car. A popular option offered with the GT5 was the large delta wing rear spoiler very similar to the spoiler found on the Countach. This '85 DeTomaso Pantera GT5-S is powerful in Black with a tan interior with exquisite burlwood accents. The Pantera has never had trouble generating excitement with the incredible looks and strong performance – for Pantera fans the GT5-S was the fulfillment of their wildest dreams with the distinctive wide-body look and outlandish wing. The paint finish is deep and rich as it flows over the exotic lines of this supercar. Slipping inside the GT-S supple leather body-hugging sports-car seats with the performance-oriented seat belts you is an experience few have. The real excitement is the road hugging, heart pounding performance this machine has to make you feel one with your driving experience. The luxurious like new condition interior compartment has a burled wood dash. The Pantera came with an abundance of convenient features such as Power Locks, Power Windows, Power Dual Mirrors, Air Conditioning, Rear Window Defrost and Tach.
