- Comment: A debate rages
amongst Panteraistas as to which Pantera is the best of them
all. Unless you have about $300-500,000 in your wallet, a factory
Group IV is probably out of the question for nearly everybody.
Besides, those cars really were meant more for the racing
circuits of Europe than Main Street USA. We have never seen a
legal Pantera Si in the U.S. and doubt that any of them are headed
for our borders anytime soon. A terrorist can sneak into this
country easier than a Pantera Si could. Fortunately, the
EPA/DOT curtains parted long enough for a few factory GT5-S cars to
legally enter the country. This is one of probably less than a dozen
that made it to these shores. This is a real GT5-S factory Pantera,
not the AmeriSport version. Not satisfied with the
original Ford V8, the original owner of this car took it to
Panteras by Wilkinson with a blank check. Built especially for the
owner was this 4.6 DOHC Ford engine with a Whipple
supercharger. We figure there are around 600+ angry horses
under that rear bonnet. The custom-made billet
aluminum and steamroller size tires complete the package. You
are not likely to find a car like this at any car shows
soon. Priced slightly higher than a plain-jane GT5-S, this amazing
car can be yours.
