*** HISTORY OF THE DE TOMASO MANGUSTA ***
The Mangusta was first offered in 1967. Designed by the great Giorgetto Giugiaro during his time at Carrozzeria Ghia in Turin, the Mangusta showcased the classic Italian wedge shape. Featuring a heavily reinforced chassis based on the Vallelunga, the Mangusta was equipped with a mid-mounted Ford V8 behind the passenger compartment. Access was granted by a set of gullwing doors which concealed the engine and manual ZF 5-speed transaxle. In North American specification, the model utilized the 5.0 liter 302ci V8, tuned to 230 horsepower. Suspension was fully independent and disc brakes were at all four corners while steering was especially responsive courtesy of a rack and pinion steering gear. The interior was dressed in full leather and featured full instrumentation which added to the race car feel. The Mangusta offered supercar level performance with incredibly stylish Italian flair. It is no wonder why examples today have been highly sought-after by collectors. With only 401 built until 1971 and only around 250 known to exist recently, Mangustas have been increasingly difficult to procure, especially in finely restored, original specification condition.
