The De Tomaso Pantera created quite a ruckus when it made its public debut at the New York Motor Show in 1970. Combining Italian styling with American horsepower, the Pantera was both beautiful to look at and blindingly fast on the road. Now, custom vehicle builder and billet parts manufacturer, Ringbrothers, is poised to once again capture the attention of car enthusiasts worldwide with the 2013 SEMA Show debut of ADRNLN – a re-imagined take on the Pantera designed in collaboration with Nike’s innovation skunk works team.
At the heart of the extraordinary car lies a Wegner Motorsports LS3 pumping out a healthy 600hp through a ZF five-speed gearbox from Bowler Performance Transmissions. The Pantera’s signature roar is created by a set of Flowmaster stainless steel mufflers while Royal Purple synthetic oils keep everything lubricated and running smoothly. Putting all that power to the ground is the job of a set of HRE forged wheels wrapped in Nitto tires with stopping power produced by Baer six-piston calipers at each corner. Tastefully subtle design cues like small wheel flairs and custom rocker panels with brake cooling ducts adorn the Pantera’s steel monocoque body which is finished off in BASF’s Glasurit 90-Line paint system to deliver the signature Ringbrothers look.
This is not the first time that we have featured the work of the Ringbrothers. At last years SEMA they brought along an epic Ford Mustang GT that looked spectacular as you can see from the images below!
