Dodge Viper GTS Race Car, Panoz Esperante GTS and more on track: NASA March 2010 (3)
I film several amazing cars on the track at Road Atlanta during the March 2010 NASA Racing Weekend. The cars include:
Dodge Viper GTS Race Car
Supercharged Dodge Viper SRT-10 Roadster
Panoz Esperante GTS
2x Ferrari 360 Challenges
You don't want to miss my next track day video! ;)
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. :)
The song is Genesis by Justice.
Panoz Esperante GT1
I film another one of Panoz's insane creations: the Esperante GT1.
Apparently only 2 of these monstrous machines exist, and this example is
finished in an awesome chameleon paint job. Unfortunately I didn't get any
shots of the GTR-1 race car behind it, but maybe next year. ;) Filmed at
the 2010 Petit Le Mans racing weekend at Road Atlanta...

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
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
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
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.

Diese Viper ist das dritte Fahrzeug für die GT2 Homologation. In 1997

Viper GTS-R at 2012 Daytona HSR Onboard - Florent MOULIN
Here is Viper chassis C27 driven by Florent Moulin during the first laps on
the Sunday morning race starting from last. Being a historic car it was
driven very carefully in the traffic.
The car qualified in 1.48sec.
This was our first time in Daytona and we are looking forward racing there
again next year.
C27 was a factory ORECA car at 2000 Daytona 24h, it was leading the race by
11am on Sunday when the gearbox broke but it managed to finish 5th OA.
