Anyone have 100 Grand I can borrow?

My favorite Mangusta race car, profiled a while back on Automobiliac is suddenly available on ebay!  I want it so badly.

Check it out HERE

Mangusta Love

This lovely example was on ebay a while back, and was so hot I had to save the pics. I don't think I have seen a better looking color combo on this car than black with the gold rims.  I'm not a fan of aftermarket hoods, but in this case, I think the extra "power bulge" on this car's front adds a certain aggressiveness even beyond the stock appearance. I wish I had been in a position to purchase this car. Which reminds me, please click on my google ads!!


Mangusta Racecars: All kinds of hotness...

As many readers know, only a paltry sum of 402 De Tomaso Mangustas were ever produced, so that makes racing Mangustas even more hyper-rare -- especially when compared to their more populous Pantera brethren who raced in various forms for many years. In fact I would wager that the 4 racing Mangustas in this article might just be the only ones ever to turn a wheel in anger. (Please correct me if I'm wrong!).  What a pity they are so scarce, because these race-prepped Mangustas are some of the meanest, hairiest looking racecars I have ever seen.

De Tomaso Mangusta - the ultimate gallery

The De Tomaso Mangusta is, for my money, the finest-looking Italian sports car of its time.  Though notorious for its unpredictable driving dynamics, it sure looks the part when it's standing still!  This stunning black over burnt orange example was recently sold by Exotic Classics of Syosset, NY. What I really love is that Exotic Classics doesn't just buy and sell vehicles in a mercenary fashion. They lovingly and artistically photograph each car in their own high end photo studio as well. I have provided their full Mangusta Gallery here on Automobiliac. Please have a look at their site for more achingly beautiful shots of a variety of cool cars!
