Behold: the 1975 De Tomaso Pantera GTS Prototipo – the archetypal hybrid of American muscle car and Italian mid-engined sportscar.

This particular GTS – commissioned by Greek industrialist Tony Mantas, a personal friend of Alejandro de Tomaso – was kitted out with a raft of custom extras starting with a white leather dashboard, no rear bumper and a lowered chassis and continuing with further modifications over the years, recorded in de Tomaso’s own handwriting and included with the sale.

Currently up for auction in Paris, accepting bids between €180,000 and €220,000.

    I had the earlier De Tomaso Mangusta in yellow. No, really.
    Sadly it was about 4″ long, (no libelous comments please), and was made by Corgi.
