The 1970’s beauty still looks better than most cars on the road today.
When it originally debuted at the New York Motor Show in 1970, the De Tomaso Pantera impressed with its combination of Italian styling and American muscle. The Ringbrothers attempted to recapture that emotion at the SEMA 2013 show this week by introducing the ADRNLN, a reinvented Pantera designed in collaboration with Nike’s innovation skunk works team.
Where the original Pantera had a Ford 351 Cleveland V8 kicking out 330 hp, the ADRNLN packs Wegner Motorsports LS3 generating 600-hp that’s sent to the HRE S101 three-piece alloys via a ZF five-speed from Bowler Performance and a B&M shifter. A pair of Flowmster stainless-steel mufflers ensures a sweet soundtrack, Baer calipers helps keep the De Tomaso within the speed limit, while styling cues include small wheel flares, custom rocker panels and accented engine bay.
