In 1980, the Pantera was available in two versions: the L and the GTS Euro. L stands for Lusso, which means luxurious in Italian, and the corresponding model was a more comfortable option alongside the sporty GTS. The first 5,500 examples of De Tomaso Pantera sold in the US were imported and distributed by Ford. In 1974, De Tomaso took its independence back and third party companies imported the Pantera onto the American market. Post-1974 examples can be identified by design cues such as new cooling vents on the hood, smaller side blinker lights, and a new De Tomaso logo. The panels used for the engine compartment also lost their rounded shape on later models. Both Lusso and GTS models were fitted with the very enjoyable V8 engine and the car provided satisfying acceleration and great handling.
