De Tomaso Pantera Can Get Back Over Gallardo's Base

 De Tomaso Pantera Can Get Back Over Gallardos Base
De Tomaso Panthera Concept

Clear Candidate to Resurrect

Most people that nowadays dream of having a De Tomaso Pantera must wait for a used one to reach the market. If any does get there, prices could be as high as US$ 100,000. What if you could have a modern version of this famous De Tomaso, built over a reliable and fast structure, such as the Lamborghini Gallardo’s? Well, if the designer Stefan Schulze manages to sell his idea to any investor, you might be able to do buy your Panthera (with an H) someday.

The De Tomaso Panthera Concept, as we have already told you, is a project based on the Lamborghini Gallardo’s platform, or else, it would have a V10 engine, 4WD system and a unique style, what would make this machine an easy target for wealthy buyers that want an exclusive piece of machinery. And, as we all know, they are not so few.

The sad part is that, with a Lamborghini Gallardo platform, the Panthera would cost much more than the original vehicle. And, considering the inherited capabilities this car would have, the additional price would be worth it.

i remember when i was small i had cards, with cars. and i was playing with my mates. and i remember i had a few red DeTomatos...i just could't lose those cars, they were so dear to me. so when they stoped making them, i thought it was game over. i just didn't heard a thing about de tomaso for i dont know how many years. and now...now, this. incredible...they are back. it's stupendous, it's great, it's colossal...it's new. neautiful and high-tech. i dont care about the AWD. maybe it'll have a diff, and move the power down to the rear, to satisfy the weirdos like Bremen_Koenigsegg (and etc)...but even if not, it will be, immensly...beautiful

Should have been built on the ford gt body and frame they look very similarly proportioned. I think the gallardo body frame should be reserved for the glorious comeback of the Miura but with a V12 :)

The Gallardo does seem an odd choice. What about co-developing with the new Lotus Esprit, then we'd get 2 70's/80's legends for the price of one

the design needs to be spiced up a little ,looks like the DMC , and with the v 10 engine and platform of the gallardo ,i think we,re just expecting a new lambo with a different body shape, so nothing new at all! a soulless car!

I agree with B_K. As it has nothing to give it a common theme with the original, why bother. The Gallardo is a great car already and the Panthera body adds nothing. I would MUCH rather see a continuation of the Ford GT, say, with a Pantera body than this. I just can't see a reason to pay to have this done to a Gallardo.

why so many haters? i think this car has potential, and even though the design is alittle bland at least its clean and uncluttered making for a nice overall shape. people should learn to be alittle more eclectic when it comes to car design.

Can someone explain why this car must have a Gallardo platform? Since Lamborghini is affiliated with Audi and the whole VW group couldn't you use the platform on the S5 which is still AWD and get a much cheaper product without sacrificing much of its better counterparts?

Great idea, good implementation. If they find an investment banker, and can keep the price between $150K-$250K, they might have a market.

I cannot express how bland this idea is. Aesthetics aside, this car ignores everything interesting about Pantera. The Pantera was never AWD; it was powered by a filthy, rumbling American V8; and it was designed by a Dutch-American famous for his Italian design. (This designer sounds German.) The only reason it will sell, if it should be so lucky, is because it is an exclusive Gallardo in a fancy frock. It doesn't even share the same name! I would like it if it weren't based on a car it has zero mechanical relation to.
