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.
