With classic styling, advanced aluminum multi-cell chassis and SPF-formed aluminum body panels, the hand-built Panoz Esperante was another example of American ingenuity and a forerunner of the aluminum-intensive vehicles seen today. Launched in mid-2001, the Esperante takes much of its "black metal" structure from the Mustang Cobra-front floorpans, firewall and windshield header for example. Other elements donated from the Mustang include a 320-horse DOHC V8, 5-speed manual & automatic transmissions, front and rear suspension pieces, emissions gear and electrical componentry.
This particular Esperante has covered just 29,000 miles from new with 0 miles on brand new Michelin Pilot Sports. It's just received a full cut/polish detail along with leather conditioning. It also includes many different options and features including a black power cloth convertible top, power windows and door locks, tilt steering, cruise control, climate-controlled air conditioning, dual power side view mirrors, power driver's seat, keyless remote entry with alarm, carbon-fiber interior trim, traction control and ABS, 4-wheel power assisted disc brakes, aftermarket Kenwood AM/FM stereo with CD player, and 18" factory chrome wheels. It has a clean CARFAX report and includes all books & keys.
If you don't want to settle for having what everyone else has, give the US-made, hand-built Panoz Esperante a try and experience what Road & Track magazine called "...a sports car tailored for a gentleman's tastes."
