Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to present this 1997
Panoz AIV Roadster! Haven't heard of one before? That's okay! Take
Carrol Shelby's recipe for the Cobra, modernize it, and this is
pretty close to what you might get! Weighing in just over 2,500
pounds with an aluminum chassis and a 32-valave 4.6-liter V8
(Mustang Cobra motor!), and the recipe is ready sound great! Bolt
up a manual 5 speed and all of sudden the part is starting! The
drivetrain is proven and Ford's 4.6 was a modular design and highly
serviceable. The same drivetrain was used in the 96 Mustang Cobra!
These were produced in very limited number/ Only 176 from
1997-1999. For this model year this example is 1 of only 49 made!
The AIV stand for 'Aluminum Intensive Vehicle' and these were one
of the first vehicles to receive this designation in the US. Almost
nobody you run into with this car will know what it is, and you
will benefit from the modern technology applied to an old
principle. The idea of a driver's car was founded on the open
cockpit design. This stays true to it's roots while applying modern
material (vehicle is 70% aluminum) and technology to enhance the
performance, drivability, and YES safety too. This 1997 Panoz AIV
Roadster is offered by the St. Louis sales staff and can be seen in
full detail on our website. Our listing all include 100+ HD photos
and a detailed video! GatewayClassicCars.com Video:
