    yeah motor trend did a comparison with a few other cars, for over 80K dollars its not worth it in my opinion, especially with just a stock ford mustang cobra engine NA and it looks like a geo convert.



    You should have thanked them for not allowing you to take a picture!

    The original car's name was De Tomaso Bigua and it was developed in Italy from De Tomaso. The designer of the car is Marcelo Gandini - the same person who made the design of Countach and Diablo. De Tomaso had some law issues with their American partners from Qvale in the end of 90's. As far as I know Qvale won the rights to produce the Mangusta in the States.

    You sure have issues with negativity don't you!

    You really need to see someone about this before it impacts other areas of your life.
    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    I think one of the best automotive designers is De Tomaso. He was also famous for the Pantera. When a friend of mine rumbled through the Tampa airport parking lot car alarms were going off everywhere. They were very fast, reliable Ford power and in my opinion, the styling was only 2nd to Ferrari.

    Personally I think the car is super ugly! Why would you not let someone take a picture? I would've done it anyway...

    Also I will agree with you on this one, it looks dated but the stance is nice and the engine setup is mint! I'd sport that ride.
