Updating Back to the Future with a DeTomaso PanteraFebruary 8th, 2015
Despite being an incredibly iconic and cool looking car, the DeLorean DMC-12 was actually a pretty crappy car. On the other hand, the DeTomaso Pantera not only looks amazing, but it drives like a bat out of hell. Sporting a 330hp Ford V8, I’m pretty sure the Pantera would have hit 88 mph in less than 1/2 the time of the DeLorean with its 130hp V6.
So with that in mind, automotive artist Khyzyl Saleem decided to show us what it might have looked like if Doc Brown had built his time machine from a Pantera instead of the DMC-12.
“I’ve always wondered what a DeTomaso Pantera would have looked like as a time machine instead of the not-so-trustworthy Delorean haha. So here it is, a mixture of photo bashing & painting, just my modern-ish interpretation of one. I had to add Marty in as well because..well..it’s Marty (his face is a little odd but the time issue got in the way). Haha”
The end result is pretty awesome, don’t you think?
