Conceived and designed as the first example of ARES DESIGN’s ‘Legends Reborn’ service, its Panther ProgettoUno is a comprehensive modern reimagining of the iconic 1970s Pantera. It is exquisitely constructed from carbon fibre and has a unique mix of traditional craftsmanship and modern engineering and manufacturing technologies.
The basis for the conversion – ARES DESIGN’s clients’ donor cars – is one of today’s most revered Italian supercars, powered by a 5204cc naturally aspirated V10 that develops 650 hp and 600 Nm of torque.
The original Pantera and the modern-day donor car 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.
