ARES’ 2018 car produced under ‘bespoke creations’ is a stunning supercar that takes inspiration from the de tomaso pantera and combines it with one of the truly great modern chassis: the 2017 lamborghini ‘huracan’ – a car that recently smashed the nurburgring production car lap record. the ‘project panther’ is undergoing final design and aerodynamic and crash-test engineering assessment at the modena facility, and will be built in very limited numbers, going on sale in the second half of 2018.


dany bahar, ARES’ founder and CEO comments, ‘this factory and project panther give a clear sign of our intent to design, engineer and produce the world’s most stunning bespoke and coach-built cars.’ he continues, ‘project panther feels right now like our halo car, but I can guarantee there is much more to come in 2018.’
