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.
