that's not how I remember De Tomaso -- it's too much a F430 in the haunches and far too much Pagani bling in the cabin.

I see more of Ferrari P4/P5 and LaFerrari influences and yes also some Pagani, which isn't a bad thing at all for in my opinion. But yes, not so closely related to "good old days" design, but the last De Tomasos before this weren't either. If you like the Pantera-Style the Ares Panther is a nice re-interpretation.

It's supposed to be a remake of P70, which, as far as I know, only existed as prototype.

As such, it does look similar. But I understand what you are saying. I am not a fan of "brand-only companies" - the only thing common with this P72 and classic DeTomasos is the name.

Chinese have lots of money and increasingly good manufacturing processes. What they lack is only the brand history and pedigree, which is what this Chinese businessmen understood well when he bought the DeTomaso name.

Saw one of these today. Love the sound of the NA NA NA engine/exhaust combo (MCR, anyone?)

De Tomaso plans to reborn the Pantera but they do not have enough money.

I think Elvis Presley had one, he once shot it when it wouldn't start.

I still remember fondly how great they looked brand new on a Lincoln-Mercury car lot back in 1972. The sticker price on the windows was around $10,000 in U.S. currency. Mustang Mach 1s were selling for about $4,500 and Corvettes for a bit over $5,000 at the time. Panteras were one of the few exotic mid-engine cars that I was able to see in person in the 1970s.
