    I think it had a Ford V8

    Yup, it was a ford V-8. Elvis Presly actually had a pantera, and when
    it didnt start, he shot it. Its true - I swear over the XJ220.<!-- Signature -->

    This car was designed in 1970, what kind of lambo exactly does it wanna be you moron, lambo and ferrari both totally ripped off the panteras styling, if it wasnt for the pantera ferraris would still look like nissan pulsars and have 190 hp, and for lambo they made tractors when this car was designed, and dubbed the ferrari killer

    1.ferrari before pantera
    2.pantera
    3.ferrari after pantera

    any questions, if you dont know anything about this car dont post, i have restored 5 panteras, and it makes me sick when people say panteras look like other cars, the design was completely original when pantera did it, and then ferrari and lambo copied it, just look at the pictures<!-- Signature -->

    Didn't the Pantera designer also design the Maserati Merak? They look almost exactly alike.

    This is one of the best cars ever made, if not THE best.

    Hey reallythough, Lamborghini began making automobiles in 1963 with the 350GTV. And by the time the Pantera was put into production, they had the Miura; possibly the most elegant and powerful Italian at the time. This is not to say the Pantera isn't a great combination of American power and Italian styling. Your statememnt about Lamborghini though, is false.<!-- Signature -->

    actually, I know of a few better cars in this catagory (older GT).
    -Ferrari 365 GTB Daytona for one
    -Lamborghini Miura
    -and then the lambo countach
    I do actually like this car, just not as much as other cars.

    this car is pretty cool in the styling department, but a few problems hamper it:
    -unreliable
    -isn't as fast as other GT's of the time. A VW corrado SLC could beat it in top speed.
    -it's extremely uncomfortable and cramped inside, whereas the ferrari mentioned above is nice and comfortable, and no wind noise.


    I spose this thing could out-handle the ferrari, cause the ferrari was made for top speed, rather than be a nimble sports car...

    Just putting in my 2 cents.<!-- Signature -->

    When I was talking about the best Italian styling of the time I was talking about the Miura.

    ps. I'm Canadian too<!-- Signature -->

    the car isnt cramped at all inside and get ur facts straight the pantera is and will be one of the best most affordable sports cars there is u cant take a ferrari to a shop and get the oil changed u gotta take it to ferrari and spend up to 10k for oil plus u cant just go to any speed shop and get parts for a ferrari engine u can with the 351 cleveland

    i think this forum has a very immature touch... it's a lot of shit-talk... sadly... anyway back to the car...

    it is very beatiful... when i see car's like this in traffic it's hard to believe it's so old... and it has a lot more than the looks...
