ARES Design Reveals 21st Century De Tomaso Pantera Super Car
|   Tuesday, February 27, 2018
ARES Design presented the first images of its future supercar, named Project Panther.
The Italian workshop, specializing in design and bodywork, belongs to Swiss businessman Dany Bahar, who was Lotus's executive director. Project Panther is a modern interpretation of the De Tomaso Pantera supercar produced in the 1970s.

The new Panther is based on the Lamborghini Huracan, uses the same platform, aluminum chassis and carbon fiber, 5.2-liter V10 engine that will deliver about 610 hp coupled to the dual-clutch automatic gearbox and 7 speeds.


The chassis for Project Panther is absolutely unique, designed by ARES specialists, adopting a perfect combination of retro and modern style. The super car has daytime running lights, the pop-up LED headlamps and small radiator grille integrated into the front bumper.

Most important is the fact that Project Panther is not a concept but a production car that will be produced at the company's factory in Modena. Prices have not been announced yet, but Dany Bahar said the first copies of the super car will be delivered to customers in the second half of next year, and now the car is subjected to testing, including safety tests.

Dany Bahar expressed his intentions regarding ARES: “We started ARES three years ago with unprecedented demand to work on the personalisation of clients’ cars, and have satisfied well over 200 customers with unique interiors, exterior design elements, bodywork engineering and performance upgrades. Our new Modena facility allows us to move above and beyond this normal personalisation service, bringing together new design and engineering technologies, teams of skilled craftsmen, and passionate experts who have joined us from local supercar businesses.”
