London Concours 2018. A walk around the 1970 De Tomaso Mangusta

This is such a super cool car.

You don’t see them often, but it’s got some lovely design features. First exhibited at the Turin Motor Show in 1966, the De Tomaso Mangusta‘s production run began in 1967, ending in 1970 with a total of just 401 examples built. Powered by a 5.0-litre V8, the car was a vision of Alejandro de Tomaso and designed with Giorgetto Giugiaro. The Mangusta (mongoose) name was a swipe at Carroll Shelby – the mongoose being the only animal able to tame the Cobra.  How cool is that?
