DeTomaso Mangusta – Perfect as is? | Chip Foose Draws a Car – Ep. 18

Italian carmaker De Tomaso was popular for their Pantera cars, but the Mangusta was both the Pantera's precursor and called after a pet that's a natural killer to snakes like the venomous cobra. While this Italian cars may or might not be a "cobra killer" in reality, there's no doubt it has a long, sleek as well as sophisticated style that Chip Foose values. So let's see what he can do for this neglected piece of Italian history.

  1. The design of the Mangusta was decades ahead of its time and still my favorite car out of every car ever made, ever …

  2. I would like to see Chip’s version of the Zonda or Huayra (cars from the other Italian factory funded also by an Argentinian)

  3. Ballsy move Chip… hard to improve on perfection.
    I had the privilege to see and photograph one at the ACM in Tacoma.

  4. I love the color you came up with…perfect for that car! Mangusta is so beautiful to begin with so i appreciate the subtle changes.
