Ares Design has released new details of ‘Project Panther’, the company’s highly anticipated supercar inspired by the legendary 1970’s De Tomaso Pantera. Having announced the limited-run project in January this year, Ares Design has now confirmed the car will be called the Panther and revealed footage of the test car in its final weeks of handling and ride set-up on the roads of Italy. Just 21 Panthers will be built from October 2018 and all of 2018’s build slots have already been ordered and production of each car takes approximately 24 weeks depending on the level of personalisation requested by the client.
Shining through the car’s protective cover is the return of one of the automotive world’s coolest and emotive design features – pop-up headlights. Meanwhile, at the back, special attention has been given to the exhaust system and pipes. Their dramatic style only matched in drama by the specially tuned soundtrack that they deliver. The Panther is the first creation from Ares’ “Legends Reborn” series – a programme that will deliver unique automotive projects focused on the resurrection of iconic sports and supercars. Design, development and production of the Panther is all undertaken at the new factory in Modena.
