The De Tomaso Mangusta, a design masterpiece penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro while working at Ghia, is one of the most stunning cars built in that wonderful era of the mid to late 1960’s. Standing just 43 inches / 1,10 meters tall, the Mangusta is the epitome of exotic. One of the most gorgeous shaped to ever grace four wheels, the De Tomaso Mangusta is impossibly rare and after almost 45 years, still stunningly seductive. The cars came equipped with a ZF five-speed transmission, Campagnolo cast-magnesium wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, independent suspension, rack and pinion steering, power windows, Ferrero wood and leather steering wheel, and the very exciting gullwing doors that cover the engine and trunk.
In total only 401 Mangustas were built between 1967 and 1971 and only about 150 were the European spec cars with the smaller but more powerful engine (289 cu V8 / 305bhp against the 302 cu V8 / 221bhp US spec cars). Of the two design variants available (4 fixed headlights against 2 pop-up headlights) the 4 headlights version is the much more desirable.
The car on offer is of the most sought after European spec 289 cu / 4 headlights type, exquisitely restored to original specification. The Mangusta is presented in Red with a Black leather interior, and is a left-hand drive car that was sold new to a Mr Norman Dube of Nova Scotia, Canada. In April 2002, the car headed to the sunnier climes of California.
Within a couple of months of landing the car, it was decided that it would benefit from a full restoration and so entrusted vintage & historic racing specialists, TSR Enterprises, Inc. of Sonoma California, to carry out a complete overhaul of the car. The history file contains extensive bills exceeding $70,000 from the aforementioned restorer detailing all works undertaken. A must-have feature on any car in California is air-conditioning and this too was fitted at the time of restoration.
After a decade of enjoyment from the Mangusta, the second keeper sold the car in August 2012, to the would-be purchaser, a British businessman, who resided in Sai Kung, Hong Kong. He exported the Mangusta to the UK in June 2013 and registered the car ‘HHY 59G'. In early 2014 the car was sent to well-known specialist Simon Furlonger for a full service and MoT, whilst also attending to a few minor niggles that were remedied easily enough. At the end of that year, 8MA820 was acquired by the VOLANTE Collection to highlight the exhibition at the opening season of the VOLANTE Museum in 2015.
Since then, the Mangusta only was taken out for short rides, just to move the mechanical parts. No German road registration, but the car can be test driven with dealer plates at any time. With the odometer now reading 34,800 miles, the Mangusta represents a masterpiece in design flair combined with brute engine power.
This example is most likely one of the best preserved Mangustas in existence and as such presents a
special opportunity for any collector of Italian Supercars.
Almost mint , unrestored Mangusta ( except respray approx 8 Years ago)
rebuilt gearbox, extensive Service History, , must be one of the best
7000 Miles believed to be correct.
