  Panther 6  (1977 - 1978)

Profile

The extraordinary Panther 6 could well have been the first road car to achieve the mythical 200mph barrier. While only 2 examples of this incredible 6 wheeled convertible were ever made, a massive 8.2 litre twin-turbo V8 producing 600bhp goes a long way to validating Panther's claim that this was the worlds fastest production car of its time.

Not only was the '6' an incredible performer but it offered luxury trim and advanced in car facilities as well. Electronic instrumentation, a telephone (in 1977!), television and even an automatic fire extinguishing system were all standard fitment on the '6'.
