Auto Quiz 567 - Finished

Recommended Posts

It is time to give you the solution for this weeks quiz. First of all I want to welcome some first time participants to this quiz.

 This beautiful yellow sports car has an American engine and a German transmission combined with Italian styling. It is a 1967 - 1971 DeTomaso Mangusta, the predessor of the famous Detomaso Pantera. The word "Mangusta" is Italian for moonguse, an animal that can kill cobras. It was rumored that the car was so named in retaliation to a failed deal between De Tomaso and Carroll Shelby. The engine was a 289 cui V8 from Ford with a 5 speed manual transmission from ZF and designed by Ghia. Later Mangusta's a  302cui V8 was installed.


The correct answer were sent in by:
