De Tomaso Mangusta Ride, Ferrari Dino
DtRockstar1 takes a ride in an extremely rare De Tomaso Mangusta, 1 of 401
built. This particular example is a one of a kind, as it was the only
Mangusta built with a Chevy engine (all others were Ford engines.) You can
also see some great footage of a Ferrari 246 Dino driving alongside us!
Bill Michell was the designer of GM several decades ago. He was a fan of
Italian sports cars, and he wanted a Mangusta for GM. However, the rival
Ford engine that came with the car didn't sit well with him, so he demanded
that it be made with a Chevy engine. The engine was recently Dyno'd at around 345 horsepower and 370 lbs ft of
torque. I would like to thank the kind owner of this car for allowing me
the opportunity to ride and film this incredible piece of history!

DeTomaso Mangusta The Classics
The DeTomaso Mangusta was the predecessor to the now very famous Pantera of
1971. Although the cars are very similar, the Mangusta and the Pantera
shared very few parts. DeTomaso had figured out early on that there was no
way his small company could tool up to build exclusive engines and
transmissions for his car lines. He instead decided to explore the limits
of design and engineering that were too bold for Ferrari and Maserati who
were the established exotic car manufacturers and at this point,
conservative in design and innovation. Innovation can sometimes lead to
great success or to disaster, DeTomaso was chastised for the handling of
his cars as was Lamborghini's first mid engine car the Miura. A few exotic
tuners and I were able to tame the snap over steer problems with slight
geometry changes to the suspension and by increasing the the rear tire foot
print of these cars.
DeTomaso had decided get a major automotive manufacturer to supply him with
a light weight v8 to take his creations out of the realm of the limited
production Four cylinder cars he had been building to becoming a
manufacturer of thousands of high performance cars instead of hundreds.
The Shelby connection. In 1964/65 Shelby was looking for a replacement for
his mid engine sports racing car, the King Cobra. Perhaps a relationship
forged during their professional racing days from when both DeTomaso and
Shelby were racing drivers, led Shelby to consider using a version of the
backbone chassis of DeTomaso's light weight Vallenlunga sports car. The
relationship led to Shelby supplying DeTomaso with his high performance
version 289 cid engine from Ford. The Shelby version of the 289 as used in
the Cobras put out a very strong 306 horsepower. With additional
Shelby modifications the 289 could put out as much as 400 hp. This power
plant made the Mangusta a very serious performance car. The US version came
with the 225 hp engine, and I am certain that the these engines were either
modified or replaced with the more powerful versions by their owners. I can
not find any facts as to how many cars were delivered with the 289 or the
302 cid engine. Just over 400 Mangusta's were produced and it is said that
fewer than 200 survive today
Check out additional related links for this story.
The Mangusta body was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro while he worked for
Shelby's focus was drawn away from DeTomaso when Ford asked Shelby to take
over the Ford GT 40 development.

De Tomaso Pantera - Exhaust Sounds!!
Last year the circuit of Spa Francorchamps hosted the event called Spa
Italia. As the name suggests it is born as a gathering for Italian cars.
Last year it was the tenth edition and as every single edition before there
was one brand the organization focussed on. This year it was De Tomaso. You
can see and hear some really nice Exhaust sounds.
