The Panoz Auto Development Company prides itself on creating innovative designs that combine luxury as well as performance. This fairly young American brand competes with other brands such as Ferrari and Lamborghini. One of its well-known models is the Esperante
Panoz Auto Development Company places auto quality above overall production. This belief is standard among many other luxury lines in the same class, such as Ferrari or Lamborghini, though it has not been established as long as many of these manufacturers. According to those at Panoz (www.panozauto.com), Daniel Panoz began the line after the Irish car company called Thompson Motor Company, who he had been working for, was liquidated. He purchased the rights to one of the chassis designs used by the company as inspiration for his company. This luxury American line is best known for its Esperante.
James M. Flammang of Valvoline (www.valvoline.com) writes that for car enthusiasts who are looking for a car that doesn't fall into the crowd one option for them to consider is the Panoz. The Esperante's sleek design, including its wide, low-lying body, helps it stand out among other automobiles. It comes in two versions: the Esperante coupe, which is the standard two-door model, and the Esperante convertible.
The amount of horsepower one can expect depends upon the model chosen. The convertible comes with a 4.6 Liter Cobra SVT V8 engine, giving this model 305 horsepower. With the coupe, drivers can purchase the GTLM coupe model that has a supercharged 4.6 Liter V8 engine, powering the car with 420 horsepower. Those at Panoz place as much time into the interior as they do with the engine. The sumptuous leather provides comfort for the driver and all passenger.
