The best De Tomaso Pantera that can be found on the market today!

Arguably the best example in existence!

A collector’s dream!

The 1983 De Tomaso Pantera GTS featured here is finished in stunning red over a wonderfully original tan leather interior. This particular example is a rare and desirable GTS model that was not sold new in the United States. It was imported to the U.S. by AmeriSport Inc. and gifted to Carroll Shelby by De Tomaso to encourage him to spearhead bringing the Pantera back to the U.S. market. Though Carroll Shelby passed away in 2012, the Pantera remained in his personal collection until 2018. Today it presents in highly original condition and only has 7,356 km (the equivalent of 4,571 miles) on the odometer. Its highly original condition, low mileage and ultimate ownership provenance make this De Tomaso simply the best example that can be found on the market today! We are proud to offer it to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage and excellent condition. Ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy? Classic cars have proven to be among the most resilient and rewarding investments in recent years with the Historic Automobile Group Index (HAGI) jumping 39% in 2013, 16% in 2014 and 17% in 2015 while posting gains of 467% over the last 10 years. Please contact one of our expert sales consultants for more information. They will be happy to give you a complete walk-around, supply you with a more detailed description and answer any questions you may have. Trades welcome. Financing available. Buy with confidence.

HISTORY OF THE DE TOMASO PANTERA GTS
The De Tomaso Pantera was introduced in 1971. Designed by Tom Tjaarda during his time as Carrozzeria Ghia, the Pantera initially utilized the same mid-engine drivetrain set up as the Mangusta. However, the Pantera featured a steel monocoque design that was incredibly rigid. Ford’s legendary 351 Cleveland V8 was refined for more power which was transferred through a ZF 5-speed manual transaxle. While the Pantera was originally available through select Lincoln-Mercury dealerships, increasing emissions standards resulted in Ford dropping the model from the U.S. market in 1974. Despite this, De Tomaso would continue to produce the Pantera until 1992 with further refinements as production continued. The Pantera GTS was introduced in 1974 with a more powerful engine courtesy of an increased compression ratio. Interest in mid-engine cars was strong throughout the United States in the early 1980s, and the idea of reintroducing the Pantera to the U.S. market was considered. At this time, De Tomaso gifted two different Panteras to Carroll Shelby in hopes that he would spearhead the reintroduction of the model to the U.S. market. Unfortunately, this idea never came to fruition though a number of later model Panteras were imported to the U.S. during the 1980’s by AmeriSport Inc. These examples rarely come to market and are highly sought-after by collectors to this day.
