15. De Tomaso Pantera
From the 1976 movie Cannonball starring David Carradine as a participant in an illegal trans American road race from Los Angeles to New York.
The Yellow Pantera is driven by the ‘baddie’ Wolfe Messer played by James Keach.
The Pantera is an Italian designed sports car built by an Argentinian with an American Cleveland V8 engine coupled to a 5 speed gear box. it produces 330 bhp with a top speed of 159 mph and 0 to 60 in less then 6 seconds. Great performance, handling and reliability with the bonus of easy to find Ford engine parts. It had a airy, yet quirky, cabin with air conditioning.
