Description

This wonderful car is one of only 34 group 3 Pantera's made and has excellent Belgian & French in-period race history (see the History section below). After the current owner bought #5006 from USA in 2005, a complete cosmetic and mechanical restoration was done by its former racing driver Bernard De Dryver.

Repainted in its original Bang & Olufsen livery and offered with a full and lengthy report prepared by respected Pantera historian and Le Mans racer Claude Dubois, this historic Group 3 Pantera is currently in perfect condition and comes with FIA papers ready to resume its competition career with a lucky new owner. This car goes very well and is eligible for all top historic events including LeMans Classic and Tour Auto where it will be welcomed as a rare and beautiful classic GT. Arguably the best Pantera Gr3 ! 

History

 Chassis number 5006, was originally ordered from the factory in 1973 prepared to FIA group 3 specification on behalf of the Bang & Olufsen importer in Belgium for the Belgian pilot Bernard De Dryver. Bernard competed successfully in various events such as the 1973 GP de Nivelles and Tour De France. In 1974 the Pantera was entrusted to Hervé Regout for the Belgian championship who finished in 2nd place overall. In Dijon, for the GT race during grand prix week-end meeting, the car finished a brilliant 3rd behind two works Porsche. In 1976, #5006 was repainted red and sold to Cavan. In 1980, the car was exported to USA. In 2005 the original Belgian De Tomaso importer Claude Dubois, discovered the car in California upon which #5006 came back to its home country where its current owner then commissioned a total cosmetic and mechanical restoration.
