Known History

The 1969 DeTomaso Mangusta featured here is finished in stunning all black with a highly original leather interior. This particular example was reputedly sold new in California and has only had three owners since. The most recent owner, a highly respected vintage motorsports enthusiast, acquired the DeTomaso from a friend in 1982 and meticulously maintained the Mangusta for the following 37 years! It presents and performs wonderfully having previously undergone a full engine rebuild as well as a full repaint. Having only traveled 47,760 miles, the interior is largely original with its original instruments and most of its original leather still intact. An excellent assortment of documentation accompanies this investment-grade Mangusta including its owner’s manual, factory brochure, invoices, period publications and magazine articles. We are proud to offer this exceptional Mangusta to the most astute collector or investor who appreciates this legendary model that perfectly blended American power with Italian design and craftsmanship.

HISTORY OF THE DETOMASO MANGUSTA

The Mangusta was first offered in 1967. Designed by the great Giorgetto Giugiaro during his time at Carrozzeria Ghia in Turin, the Mangusta showcased the classic Italian wedge shape. Featuring a heavily reinforced chassis based on the Vallelunga, the Mangusta was equipped with a mid-mounted Ford V8 behind the passenger compartment. Access was granted by a set of gullwing doors which concealed the engine and manual ZF 5-speed transaxle. In North American specification, the model utilized the 302ci (5.0 liter) V8; tuned to 230 horsepower. Suspension was fully independent and disc brakes were at all four corners while steering was especially responsive courtesy of a rack and pinion steering gear. The interior was dressed in full leather and featured full instrumentation which added to the race car feel. The Mangusta offered supercar level performance with an incredibly stylish Italian flair. Only 401 examples were produced in 1971, of which around 250 are known to still exist today. Well-kept examples have become difficult to procure and rarely come to market. As such, high caliber Mangustas are highly sought after by collectors today.
