Panoz Esperante is an American sports car introduced in 2000.
The Panoz Esperante is almost completely aluminum, allowing
for a lower weight. Using the aerospace industrys technique
of Superplastic Forming, body panels are molded from aluminum
in a completely new way that is stronger than steel, but also
was more dent-resistant and paint-friendly. In addition, the
chassis is assembled by using aluminum extrusions that are bonded
together as opposed to welded, making the chassis much stronger.
Power for the Panoz Esperante comes from a variety of Ford sourced
engines. The base Esperante is fitted with a 320 horsepower,
aluminum 4cam V8.
Panoz offers a long list of options to custom build the Esperante
for just about any individuals taste or needs. Customers
are encouraged to visit the factory in Georgia and review options
before ordering a car from their dealer.
