De Tomaso Pantera 1971 BOEING STEARMAN zw.psd
The De Tomaso Pantera from 1971 a true sports car is an Italian sports car that was the very first and only car to win the 24-hour classic race. It also holds the distinction of being the first car to cross the finish line of the Le Grand Prix in Italy. The De Tomaso didn't really take off in its class due to financial problems and the rest of the Italian classic car makers found their way into the race by putting out new cars that were faster and more technologically advanced than the Pantera.
The De Tomaso however never managed to regain the speed it had in its first race and after a few seasons the car was withdrawn from the sport. Only time will tell if the revived De Tomaso can equal the achievements of the originals and if it will be able to challenge for supremacy once again. Regardless, many automotive fans still find the Pantera to be a classic car, a car with class and a personality that can't be matched by any other modern-day sports car. If you are in the market for a true Italian classic then the Pantera might just be the right vehicle for you.
Perhaps one of the most striking features of the De Tomaso Pantera from 1971 is its stance. A sporty two-door coupe, the De Tomaso Pantera looks almost like an SUV or a truck. Its long hood and low rear window accentuate this look, giving it a sporty look. Even with its modern day upgrades the Pantera still manages to carry its roots from before and deliver a powerful and stylish ride for modern day drivers who want to enjoy a powerful, classic ride that can be as unique as the driver himself.
