A car with two names and two brands: this example of Mangusta was presented as De Tomaso Biguà then, at the end of the 90’s became Mangusta when Qvale family financed the project. Health and financial problems forced Alejandro De Tomaso to leave the project letting it be sold as Qvale Mangusta.

This prototype remained inside the factory with the typical specs of the De Tomaso Biguà/Mangusta: it is the car that was photograped for the marketing/press purposes and it appears on a leaflet under the brand De Tomaso; it is easily recognizable for the specific wheels, the black front headlamps, the door handles, the absence of side marker lights and the back-red interior.

After the company closed in 2002 the car was purchased by the current, first and unique owner, together with the prototype of the coupè, driving it rarely. It was sold as a Qvale Mangusta, but it is easily recognizable as a De Tomaso, main feature for collectors and enthusiasts: this is the last running sample of De Tomaso ever produced. Before the bankruptcy, De Tomaso tried to launch the “new Pantera” but it was just a style model: the complete story of the last years of the argentinian-modenese company are carefully described on an article published on the issue 11-2017 of the british magazine Auto Italia; this car is one of the characters, the eldest remained, with chassis number 002. The first Biguà, painted in silver and used as a show car at Geneva Auto Show 1996, was crashed and went destroyed. 

Even if it is a prototype with many handcrafted parts, just for photos and shows, the car runs perfectly and had been recently serviced. It still has the first license plates and was driven for less than 6000kms.​

This car could be seen in Bologna by appointment. Soon further details.


Historical notes:

The Qvale Mangusta was produced in almost 270 cars from 1999 to 2001. Name and company were from San Francisco but the factory was located in Modena.  By the name of the model you’ll understand that its origin is tighten to another DNA: the Mangusta would have been the hommage made by Alejandro De Tomaso to his first Mangusta, a GT presented in late 60’s. At first it was presented under the name of “Biguà” at the 1996 Geneva motor show, but we know it as “Qvale Mangusta” because Qvale family, the US importer for many European prestige cars noticed the car and provided funding to develop the show car into production car, which would be called “De Tomaso Mangusta” instead. Kjell Qvale, with his son Bruce, was the Maserati importer for the States since the 70’s: he also funded the San Francisco auto show, imported Jaguar, Austin Healey and Rolls-Royce and designed the “corkscrew” corner at Laguna Seca raceway.

Inspired by the british TVR, Ing. Casarini chief designer imagined a simple chassis based on a Ford V8: then they added a very special retractable roof, the “Roto-top”,which could transform the car from coupe to convertible or targa.

Qvale was was receiving a strong demand from the US market, the car was very suitable for that market but De Tomaso increased its financial problems and Qvale finally took over the project in 2000, going into production under the name Qvale Mangusta. Qvales expected to produce 900 Mangustas in 2001, but that did not come true. Market reaction to the car was poor, probably due to its general inability to match Porsche, Ferrari and other european sports cars. After less than 300 examples produced, the production ceased.

The “new” Mangusta handling was pretty good thanks to a very rigid chassis, 50-50 weight distribution, all double wishbones suspensions, strong Brembo brakes, powerful and progressive. It rode well with an excellent body control and a power oversteering to play with, thanks to a V8 engine with 322hps from the Ford Mustang Cobra. Its 2670mm wheelbase was among the longest for a 2-seater and enabled the big V8 to be positioned virtually completely behind the front axle and resulted in a perfect front-to-rear weight distribution. The stock V8 inherently complied with Federal emission standards. Qvale also engineered the car to satisfy Federal safety laws. 

The styling was penned by Marcello Gandini, the father of the Pantera, Lamborghini Miura, Countach and various Maseratis: the angular shape of rear wheelarches, was his signature. Its shape echoes the american muscle cars in the big side skirts, the side air intakes and the rear lamps covered by the grid: at the time it didn’t convince but now we can find a precise style of the mid 90’s was maybe appreciate more.

Inside there are many components derived by Ford production cars (which is a good resource for spare parts), mounted into a full leather interior comprehensive of air-conditioning, power seats, windows and mirrors, ABS and remote control lock.
