One of the most gorgeous shapes to ever grace four wheels, the DeTomaso Mangusta is impossibly rare and after almost 45 years, still stunningly seductive. Meaning “Mongoose” in Italian, the Mangusta was the first car of DeTomaso to see mass production; if a total of 401 units can be considered “mass.” Powered by a high-performance Ford V8 believed to be producing well in excess of 300 horsepower, the big V8 is backed by the same ZF 5-speed transaxle used in the famed Ford GT-40 racers. Top speed is estimated at 155 m.p.h. and with a total height of only 43 inches, the sensation of speed is further magnified. The Mangusta rides on 15” Campagnolo cast-magnesium wheels, hulking beneath aggressively flared fenders, and a fastback tail with a distinctive dorsal rib on which twin-engine access covers are hinged gullwing-style. The images speak for themselves: this car is breathtaking.

The incredible DeTomaso Mangusta featured here is finished in stunning dark red over a gorgeous black leather interior. Originally delivered new in Europe to its first owner and then brought to the United States where, reportedly, Carroll Shelby was commissioned to rebuild and blueprint the engine to his specifications; eventually ending up in a prominent collection for many years. This exquisite example has been meticulously maintained and recently serviced including new Michelin XWX tires and is now ready to be shown or driven. Accompanying this investment-grade DeTomaso Mangusta are its original owner's manual, sales brochure, toolkit and more. We are proud to bring to market what we believe to be one of the very best examples on the market today! Offered to the most sophisticated collector, investor or enthusiast who understands and appreciates the investment potential of this iconic model.

The investment potential of this amazingly rare Italian exotic is immense. According to London-based investment research firm, Historic Automobile Group International, classic cars have appreciated an average of 13-percent per year since 1980 – while stocks averaged 11-percent over the same period.
