A Mangusta Is Irresistible

by Mike – 

The De Tomaso Mangusta is irresistible, I cannot resist looking and taking pictures. I think it is one of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s best designs.

Approximately 400 Mangustas were produced between 1967 and 1971; 150 were the European version using the Ford V8 289 cid engine with 305 hp, and 250 were the US version, with the Ford 302 cid engine with 230 hp. There are thought to be fewer than 150 Mangustas left in existence.

This red beauty was at the Pacific Coast Dream Machines event in Half Moon Bay, California in May 2011.

My previous article about the Mangusta is here.

Panteras were there too.
