Rebuilt from a very good quality road going Pantera that was first registered in 1972, this fully race-prepared Pantera has competed, and won, in many historic race events.
Built by Denmark’s biggest car manufacturer "Aquila racing cars", this Pantera boasts a Cleveland 351 cubic inch (5.8 L) V8 producing 503bhp with 4 twin Weber carburettors, all calibrated on a dyno and with dry sump lubrication. Power is fed to the wheels via a modified gearbox with dog shift and AP clutch.
Cooling the massive power plant is a specially manufactured aluminium radiator with 2 effective fans and oversize expansion container with integrated swirl pot and a Laminova heat exchange to control cooling/ heating of the gearbox and electric gear oil pump, which ensures the Pantera´s normal problem with cooling doe
