Gr 5 Chassis 

Original 1984 DeTomaso factory GT5 Pantera, chassis #9313, converted to full race Group 5 “tribute” or “re-creation”.


Far rarer than the factory DeTomaso Group 4 Panteras, there are only a few original Group 5 Panteras ever built. This “re-creation” has been designed and modified based on the originally homologated Sala-Marverti Group 5 Pantera, chassis #001, as raced in Europe and the Hugh Kleinpeter IMSA GTX Pantera as raced in the USA.

Tube frame front/rear sections are integrated into full safety cage built beyond the original Gr 5 standards. Front/Rear composite body sections mount to tubular sub-frames for light weight and facilitating quick maintenance similar to the Sala-Marverti Gr5 and Kleinpeter IMSA Panteras. (Molds for front/rear clips included.)

Options to complete the car available include:​

  • (2) engines from ex-LeMans ADA racing Pantera (need rebuild)

  • Motec ECU, Ignition Expander, relays and full chassis and engine wiring harnesses

  • Original ZF gearbox & bellhousing

  • (2) Polished stainless Tech-Craft mufflers with custom mounts

  • (2) Willwood 6-piston GN calipers and disks (new)

  • (2) AP 6-piston brake calipers

  • (1) set of new Kodiak race wheels (will be built to your specs)

  • Multiple other wheel/tire options including Gotti or Jongbloed wheels

  • Set of molds to convert body to late model Pantera Si

  • Many misc parts including: engine/trans mounts, sway bars, spare suspension parts, etc.


Aside from the original Sala Group 5 and Kleinpeter IMSA GTX, this is one of the most modified race chassis while still being based on a production Pantera chassis. It goes far beyond the changes made for the more common Group 4 racing Panteras and with improved safety and performance. This Pantera provides a unique option to race alongside epic Gr 5 cars such as the Porsche 935 but at a fraction of the cost!
