Panoz Esperante--D&M Motorsports Video Test Drive Review 2012 Chris Moran
SEE OVER 100 IN-DEPTH AUTO REVIEWS @ www.SUPERCARNETWORK.com. A first drive for Chris in the Panoz Esperante. Presented by D&M Motorsports, hosted by Chris Moran. Our intentions were good. This would be the first magazine to pit two similarly priced, low-volume, Ford SVT Mustang Cobra-powered sports cars from a pair of young and eager companies in a breathtaking shootout. The fatal flaw was the timing. Qvale Modena is already shipping Mangustas to customers. The company diverted one for this test and certified that it was fairly representative of that which citizens of the land may purchase. On the other hand, Panoz Auto Development Company in Hoschton, Georgia, is still developing its Esperante. It did produce a prototype with Irish-green paint and oatmeal leather for testing, but the car was clearly yanked out of the oven while still a little squishy. Regular production of the aluminum body panels had yet to begin, the interior is still undergoing minor revisions, and raising the unperfected convertible top occupied two engineers with tools for 20 minutes. In short, the Esperante's test numbers have too many asterisks to be used in an honest comparison with the Mangusta. Not to say that the time spent with the Esperante was a complete waste. The Panoz shows promise of maturing into a shapely, competent roadster, and Danny Panoz promises the first buyers will be able to unload their extra $81,961 on one by this fall, once he obtains tops and bodies for the 100 or so completed chassis sitting in his factory. That's just a few thousand clams shy of the Mangusta's price, but philosophically, the Esperante is a completely different animal. Panoz splices in far more Mustang DNA, including the steering rack, the ABS-equipped brakes (not available on the Mangusta), the independent rear suspension (IRS) module, and parts of the floorpan and fire wall. After modifications, those bits bolt to a space frame of interlocking aluminum extrusions that form the main structural skeleton. Oddly enough, despite the high Mustang content, the Esperante feels less like a Mustang than the Qvale does. Panoz is aiming for a more classic sports-car experience and succeeds in part with a lower driving position, a compact three-spoke steering wheel that neatly conceals its airbag, and two pontoon fenders that bracket the view out the windshield. The crisply tuned Panoz also behaves lighter on its feet. It turns in with Ginsu sharpness and bites the pavement hard in corners. But the Esperante demands a smooth hand near the limit because the rear end is easy to fluster and difficult to collect after it breaks loose. Blame may lie with the Cobra's IRS module. Ford engineers designed it first and foremost to bolt directly to the Mustang's live-axle pickup points, sacrificing weight and performance for packaging convenience. Panoz adds only a cantilevered coil-on-shock assembly to make it work in the Esperante's space frame. Perhaps more tweaking will get the Panoz and Ford ends working in better harmony. Throttle response is lustier in the Panoz, and it trounces the Mustang Cobra and the Mangusta in acceleration and braking. An oppressively boomy, low-restriction Exhaust may have helped contribute to the scorching drag-strip times. Danny says they are still tinkering with different systems. Since it last appeared on these pages (January 1999), the Esperante has experienced some noteworthy revisions. "Nobody liked the pursed lips," admits Danny, so Panoz widened the tiny oval mouth that gave the first Esperante a face out of The X-Files. Inside, the company inched the shift knob closer to the driver by installing a remote shift linkage. It also repositioned the center-mounted gauges so that their binnacle is flat to the panel a la BMW Z8. Fine, except that they are even harder to read quickly and the reflection of the sky washes out the dials. The Panoz may need to bake some more, but with Qvale out booking sales, the temperature should be hotter than ever.





Panoz Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans
I film the all-new, limited edition Panoz Abruzzi Spirit Of Le Mans at it's North American debut during the 2010 Petit Le Mans endurance race at Road Atlanta. Besides possibly being the most evil-looking production car ever, it is also a technological marvel. I am pleased to present the first full video of this car on youtube. The Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans consists of only 81 examples, which in 2013 represents the number of 24 Hours of Le Mans races since the event's inception in 1923. All of the Spirit of Le Mans editions will be sold in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. The Corvette ZR1's V8 engine is used to produce over 600 hp in the Abruzzi, which, like every other Panoz, is handbuilt in Hoschton, Georgia. In addition to the mammoth power and torque from the LS9, the car is super light and super strong, being the first road car built with the new REAMS material, which is stronger and lighter than carbon fiber. I could go on about all of the incredible details incorporated into this car, but I'll let the car speak for itself. :) Enjoy! The song is Genesis by Justice.

1998 Panoz Roadster
If your into the car that is a bit more unique than the standard repetitive stuff you see at car shows then you have just stumbled across your holy grail. Many people have not heard of Panoz but if you have you are aware that these one of a kind cars are all built by hand. Taking inspiration from race cars Panoz creates extremely unique automobiles that you won't see anywhere else. One of the most amazing things about them is the fit and finish is something you would expect from a billion dollar car manufacturer like Ford or Chevrolet. When you typically think of custom built cars you don't expect the tightness you would from something that rolled off the assembly line in 2013. Well this car has that. Why so unique you may ask? Well if the overall look of the car isn't enough the fact that only 176 were produced to sell between 1997 - 1999 should do the trick. People and investors with an interest in cars are constantly looking for the next Shelby Mustangs, Hemi Cudas, and rare Corvettes. It can be difficult to predict what may be considered rare in the future but you can bet the Panoz line of vehicles will be on the list. The aluminum body has a very unique appearance with a tail similar to a Cobra and a nose more like a track t. This streamline appearance hugs the ground and creates a road racer appearance that impresses everyone who gets a chance to see it. A aluminum block 4.6 liter powers the car and as you can imagine provides plenty of torque. With a weight of roughly 2,500 lbs you can imagine what 305 horsepower can really do. These cars are extremely cool and if you ever have a chance to drive one...DO IT! You will be amazed at the performance and handling capabilities it has to offer.

Also, I talked with a few guys at the event this time as opposed to recording the whole time. It was close to 29 degrees out so I think it caused my camera to have some sort of seizure as well. I'm planning on going again next Saturday but as for this weeks video, this is all I got.

I film this wonderful green Esperante Roadster at Italian Car Day 2011. This American roadster ended the succession of Italian cars in that parking spot: before "Jenny" showed up , an Alfa Romeo, then a Granturismo S, then another Gran Turismo S inhabited the spot... Hope you like it!
