Conceived and designed as the first example of ARES DESIGN’s ‘Bespoke Creations’ service, its Project ‘Panther’ is a comprehensive modern reimagining of the iconic 1970s Pantera. It will be exquisitely constructed from carbon fibre and will have a unique mix of traditional craftsmanship and modern engineering and manufacturing technologies.
The basis for the conversion – ARES DESIGN’s clients’ donor cars – will be one of today’s most revered Italian supercars, powered by a 5204cc naturally aspirated V10 that develops 640-660hp and 560Nm of torque. The original Pantera and the modern-day donor cars share broadly similar dimensions. The donor is considerably wider, but with a wheelbase that is only 12 centimetres longer than the original Pantera it is an ideal basis for the transformation.
