De Tomaso Pantera prototype – Click above to watch the video after the jump

There are some things in this world that, no matter how many there are, we can never get quite enough. Like sleep. Or Victoria's Secret lingerie models. (Or ideally, a combination of the two.) And of course, mid-engined Italian supercars.

The next expected to join the fold is De Tomaso. The long-dormant marque has been revived by former Fiat executive Gian Mario Rossignolo, but as for its first debut – the Deauville crossover – let's just say it's not what we were looking forward to most. No, that role will be filled by the revival of De Tomaso's most iconic model: the Pantera.

The new supercar is expected to debut in the fall at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which means development must be well under way by now. Exhibit A: the video after the jump, which shows a barely-disguised prototype rolling out of De Tomaso's headquarters in Modena, Italy. It looks the part and certainly sounds it, as well. But don't take our word for it – follow the jump to watch the short spy clip for yourself.
