View 26 Photos
Back when it wasn't so easy for a visionary gent to build his own supercar (but the results were just as mixed as today), Alejandro DeTomaso managed to maintain production of the DeTomaso Pantera for 20 years – and that was his third car. This 1972 DeTomaso Pantera GT5-S 'Prototipo' one-off
being auctioned on eBay Motors has is said to have won numerous trophies, including Best of Show in the Pantera division at the prestigious Concorso Italiano. Even if you're not on board with the polished wheels setting off the claimed $60,000 in bodywork, the workmanship appears top-notch, as is the the white-striped House of Kolors Candy Blue paint job. This Pantera is claimed to have just 19,000 original miles.

Behind the cabin is a polished 7.2-liter V8 from Pantera Motorsports dubbed "the Hammer," pushing out more than 600 horsepower even before you flip the switch on the nitrous setup with two tanks. It looks like nothing has been left untouched, with leather-wrapped cabin set off by white-faced gauges and turned aluminum, custom mirrors and turn signals, a Wilwood racing brake system and a trunk that's full of Alpine and Kenwood electronics.

The Buy It Now price is $99,500. If this sort of thing is your bag, it might not be too late to return all of your Christmas gifts for a down payment.
