What is a DeTomaso Pantera you ask? Well in my opinion it is one kick-ass exotic muscle car! Yet good examples can be found for a fair price. It has the best of both worlds with Italian design and a Ford 351C engine. Having the 351 Cleveland engine gives the Pantera '70s muscle car status, yet being Italian designed and built also puts it in the ranks of an exotic Italian sports car. Its mid-engine design gives it exceptional handling and balance. The car was available in the US at Lincoln/Mercury dealers in the early '70s.
