Panoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition

To celebrate their 25th anniversary, Panoz has released an Esperante Spyder with no compromises. Don Panoz and his group of motorsports mavericks have been a force to be reckoned with at Le Mans and found­ed the American Le Mans Series in 1999. An incredibly stiff chassis is formed from extruded aluminum with tubular-steel subframes for the powertrain. Body panels and interior are comprised of carbon fiber and aerospace aluminum. A fully independent suspension sports double adjustable coil-overs with 14-inch brakes and six-piston calipers. Engines are supplied by Elan Power Products, who builds blueprinted versions of Ford’s Coyote V-8 (rated at 430 horsepower) and the LS9 from Cadillac’s CTS-V (575 horsepower). New for 2015 is a bespoke interior wood pack­age. Sixteen species of hardwood are CNC machined into beautiful and functional interior trim. Saebelt carbon-fiber seats are covered in any color leather you desire, while the Kenwood entertainment system offers Pandora and Bluetooth. Every aspect of the car can be built to order, and customer is involved in every decision, from deposit to delivery.Panoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition photo2Panoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition photo1Panoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition backPanoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition interiorPanoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition dashPanoz Esperante Spyder 25th Anniversary Edition engine
