Vehicle Description


2015 Panoz Esperante Roadster GT
Offered for sale by K2 Motorcars is this immaculate 2015 Panoz Esperante Spyder GT finished in Alubeam Silver MB-AMG Paint over a two-tone Black and Perforated Gray Leather Interior w/ Alcantara Trim showing just 381 miles on the odometer! This beautiful Panoz is just one of only three examples built and the only Esperante Spyder GT to ever be delivered to the client, with the first two being kept by Panoz in their museum.

Debuted at SEMA 2014, the Esperante Spyder GT is essentially a street-going version of the proven Panoz GT2 racecar from the American Le Mans Series, sans roof and finished to high-end standards. Panoz built 25 commemorative Esperante examples for the company rsquo;s 25th anniversary, but only three in the Spyder GT configuration. Its proportions and scale project a traditional look in the spirit of a 1960s-era roadster, though nothing about the car is retro, and in fact, the design still looks fresh today and is likely to survive into the future without appearing dated.

What rsquo;s also definitely not dated are the materials used in its fabrication, aimed at keeping the Esperante Spyder GT down to a fighting weight of 3,350 pounds. The body manufacture employs superplastic forming so that the end result is rigid, lightweight, and strong. Components made of carbon fiber abound, including the front splitter, rear diffuser, and tonneau cover.

Notable, and giving the variant an even more aggressive stance than others in the Esperante line, are wider carbon-composite body panels with unique side exhausts. The car rsquo;s underpinnings are an all-aluminum chassis with tubular steel subframes and carbon-fiber composite superstructures. The suspension system uses independent upper and lower control arms with adjustable coil-over springs and shocks, and steering is power-assisted rack-and-pinion. Brakes are by Brembo; 14-inch two-piece floating discs with six-piston monobloc calipers in front and 13-inch discs with four-piston calipers at the rear. Added style comes from BBS one-piece wheels, fitted with 275 front tires and 325s in back.

The car rsquo;s strength is in both power and handling. Under the hood is a Chevrolet LSA aluminum V-8 engine displacing 6.2 liters. Supercharged and upgraded by Panoz/ Eacute;lan, it develops 560 hp. And a Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission stirs things up in traditional sports-car style.

Inside, the Alcantara-and-leather interior features attractive carbon-fiber trim and the soft top stows in the trunk. This Esperante Spyder GT is finished in special-order Alubeam Silver, a Mercedes-Benz paint color that complements the soft curves and aggressive stance of the roadster.

K2 Motorcars are offering this Panoz on behalf of the original owner, recently underwent a fresh annual service which included an oil and filter service, spark plug replacement, and brake service and flush. Done miss this rare opportunity to own a unique piece of Panoz history and a car that nobody else will have!
