The first De Tomaso Pantera was revealed at the New York Auto Show in 1970 and succeeded to the Mangusta model. The Pantera was a mid-engine supercar created for the American market and distributed using the Ford network. The styling was handed to Ghia while the body was supplied by Vignale in Turin and assembled by the De Tomaso factory in Modena. Standard Ford components were used for the engine in order to make it more reliable and the car was fitted by a high-output version of the 5.7-liter V8 linked to a 5-speed ZF transaxle. Horsepower was rated at 330 for the European models, 310 for the American version and down to 250 hp by 1973 due to increasing emissions controls. The Pantera was the top selling model of the brand and stayed in production until 1992.
