1968 Bertone Panther

At the 1968 Geneva Motor Show, Bertone presented the Panther, a racing prototype for the Brescia Corse team, destined for the Prototype World Championships. The chassis was a monocoque for obvious reasons of the practicality of replacement and enhanced aerodynamics. The rear was designed to feature two large grilles for engine cooling and the exhaust pipes. The refined aerodynamics also featured a prominent, high, wing-shaped spoiler above the cockpit, which could be hydraulically controlled to vary its effect. The prototype featured many advanced solutions, such as the geometry of the suspensions, tubeless tires, and a 24 Volt electrical system that offered equal absorption but allowed for the use of smaller, and therefore lighter, conductors.
