De Tomaso Pantera Group 5
The extremely rare De Tomaso Pantera racing car offered here was delivered new to Switzerland to the racing driver Walter Friedrich. Friedrich had the Pantera converted to Group 5 by the De Tomaso factory and raced it in various hill climbs, including Oberhallau, La Roche and Gurnigel. The owner history in later years is well known. The car is very well documented and many documents such as the original order form, purchase invoice, work cards/workshop order from the De Tomaso factory as well as photos from the time are available. Also mentioned and described in two De Tomaso books is this desirable De Tomaso Pantera Group 5.
The last owner optimized this Pantera Gr 5 again for historic racing. The correct 351 cu-in Ford Cleveland engine is equipped with dry sump lubrication and produces 523 hp according to the dyno. The transmission has been revised and fitted with ratios suitable for circuit racing. The entire chassis was also revised and adapted by means of new shock absorbers and springs, aluminum bushings, reinforced steering column and new brake system with adjustable balance. For endurance racing, in addition to the existing 75-liter tank, a 50-liter FT3 tank was mounted at the front. With optimized cooling, also for the brakes, stainless steel exhaust system (one loud and one silenced version), additional aluminum fenders, two sets of wheels (slick and rain) and currently valid FIA/HTP papers, this Pantera is a competitive bolide for future racing.
