Recently, information has emerged that the delivery of new models, a tribute to De Tomaso Panther will begin this year in May. We need to say that this news is great as well as the car itself that kept the retro style. Let’s remember the earlier camouflage which was not exactly the best fitted. In contrast, Panther ProgettoUno now looks much, much better.
Dany Bahar, the founder of Ares Design, said his company has sold 9 units so far. In addition, we learned that the production will be relatively limited because in the next few years only 60 to 70 such cars will be produced
He also stated:
“Once we have the car ready, which will be around three to four weeks’ time, I believe we will close our target of 17 cars this year very, very soon.”
Let’s take a look at some of the features of Panther ProgettoUno.
As far as the engine is concerned, the same one from Lamborghini Huracan will be installed in the new Panther ProgettoUno, and if you look at several images, you will be able to easily conclude that this is a similar design as with the Italian supercar.
According to Bahar, his company focused primarily on “the pleasure of driving”, in contrast to other models that aim at speed and power. He also added that they “mainly modify the engine characteristics, the calibration, the gearbox changing times and the way the gearbox changes and, of course, the exhaust system.”
In this way, users will have a better driver experience.
The Panther ProgettoUno has a 5.2-liter V10 power unit, which can produce 650 bhp (brake horsepower). It also reaches a speed of 62mph in 3.1 seconds. As for the maximum speed Panther can reach, it is over 200 miles per hour. We must also mention the fact that the 7-speed direct-shift gearbox (DSG) is installed into this car, the same as that in the Lamborghini Huracan.
As for the design, the exterior is made of carbon, and the situation is similar inside of the Panther. However, since Ares Design deals with design and personalization, as the name suggests, it is possible to make changes according to customer’s wishes. This is confirmed by Bahar:
“Each car will be personalized and personalized to the maximum. No request or demand from the customer is too hard. ”
Although you may think that only very wealthy people are able to afford this, the situation is actually different. As the owner of the Ares Design says, so far, the car has been bought mostly by people who are in some way connected with the original De Tomaso’s cars.
The main goal of Ares is to give its customers a retro outlook, but also reliability and quality. According to Dany Bahar, this car passed a test that involves a distance of 200,000km, so they are convinced of its quality.
