NEAR FLAWLESS, ULTRA LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLE OF WHAT HAS BEEN TERMED "THE GREAT AMERICAN ROADSTER"...1 OF 14 SILVER PANOZ AIV ROADSTERS PRODUCED IN 1999 AND 1 OF 176 TOTAL EVER PRODUCED....AWESOME MODERN HOT ROD COLLECTIBLE, READY TO SHOW AND GO!!! This particular Silver '99 AIV is in near flawless condition and has just under 4450 pampered miles. 1999 was the final year of production for the AIV and just 55 were produced that year with 14 of them being Silver. I recently acquired this Silver beauty from a collector who deals primarily in Italian Sports Cars. He had also gotten the Panoz bug years ago and this was the second one he owned. He had planned on keeping it for years along with another one he had but was running out of space and money for his primary business so he decided to let it go for the next lucky owner to drive and enjoy. This AIV was originally sold at the end of 1999 to some folks in Florida who kept the car until 2008 when they sold it to a couple in Georgia. The Carfax report shows the car only had 4159 miles at that time and now, 8 years later only has a little over 4400 miles on it. This should give you an idea of the type of care and usage the car had. As a result the paint and body are in near flawless condition. Of course the Carfax report shows that were never any accidents. The only flaws I noted were a small scratch on one of the rear fenders that was touched up and a couple of unavoidable rock chips that are extremely small. As you will see, the rear fenders are protected with a rock guard material as the open front fender design tends to kick up loose gravel. All of the chrome on the suspension looks great and the stainless bumpers look great. The styling on the body is gorgeous and looks classy from every angle with just the right amount of muscle letting others know that this baby is built to perform. I think the walk around photo tour of the body will show you what you need to know. he AIV roadster is a car you should plan on driving with the top down as often as possible!!! However, if needed, there is pretty cool convertible top that gets stored in a custom bag that can be installed quite easily. At some point the original top to this car got lost and I had Panoz, located here in Georgia, make us a brand new one. It also has side window inserts that have never been used and to be honest these were not known to be a car you want to be driving in the rain very long as the top did not seal up perfectly and you can expect to get a little wet. But lets be realistic, this roadster is like a Shelby Cobra and deserves to be driven on the sunny days or cool evenings topless so that you get the full experience. Complimenting the glistening Silver Exterior is a comfortable and simplistic black interior. The black bucket seats have a custom red and light gray stripe and looks close to brand new. Leather wrapped dash is neatly laid out and the center console has a carbon fiber insert. The Nardi D shaped steering wheel gives the driver a little more room and is race inspired. Nice sounding AM/FM/CD player neatly mounted in the dash with speakers neatly hidden below the dash. The '99 has a small storage compartment between the seats that was not offered on the earlier years. Ice Cold A/C that was recently serviced. All of the gauges and lights are functioning correctly and are neatly laid out. Nice set of custom Panoz floor mats finish out the interior. While this AIV is certainly a nice piece of eye candy, there is no doubt that this car was designed and built to perform and handle like a true high end sports car. Climb in the cockpit, turn the key, and enjoy the ride of your life!! This particular car has really just been broken in with just under 4450 miles. Each Panoz AIV roadster has the same hand assembled Ford SVT Cobra engine and Borg Warner T-45 5-speed transmission originally introduced in the 1996 Mustang Cobra. This 305 horsepower, all aluminum, modular 4.6 L V-8 had the DOHC 32 Valve configuration. Brakes came from the Mustang Cobra as well with 13 inch vented twin piston discs up front and 10 inch vented single piston discs in the rear. All Panoz AIV Roadsters have 4 wheel independent suspension with the 8.8 Ford limited slip differential. All have the large bore aluminum chassis rails with an aluminum backbone frame and mild steel tubular subframes. The bodies were super plastic formed (SPF) aluminum with fiberglass fenders and hood scoop. Weighing in at a lightweight 2500 lbs this Panoz will get you from 0-60 in the 4 second range and do the 1/4 mile in the low 13's all the while handling like it is on rails. Brand new front tires and the rear tires are close to new. This AIV roadster is performing beautifully with no issues. I personally drove the car about 30 miles and it drives and handles amazingly. The great thing about this modern hot rod is that it can be serviced at any authorized Ford SVT dealership or service shop. The trunk can hold some small overnight bags if needed and this car does come with all of the original manuals. Make sure you also listen to the deep throaty sound from the stock factory exhaust in the video that follows. Asking price is $42,900 and serious buyers can call me at 770-359-8400
