29: De Tomaso Pantera
Want a Ford GT40 for thousands less? Well, the De Tomaso Pantera was knocked for being a redneck GT40, but the car is the same thing. The Ford derived V8 engine and suspension are both the same as what you’d find in the GT40. The car has a lot of potential behind it and even today you can find one for a reasonable price. The De Tomaso Pantera was disregarded by the automotive community and it was quickly forgotten, but that benefits potential buyers of the car.
With a polarizing design and fun to drive demeanor, the De Tomaso Pantera is a pretty unique piece of automotive history. The car has everything that you’d expect in a vehicle of this price range, all wrapped up in a budget-friendly Ford GT40 clone.
