Panoz Esperante

The Panoz Esperante is a two seat rear-wheel-drive convertible with an all aluminum chassis and aluminum body panels. It is powered by a 305 hp 4.6-liter V8 engine with the choice of either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic.

The Esperante may sound like an exotic European supercar, but it is, in fact, an all-American high-performance roadster. Panoz build each of these cars by hand in Georgia, USA.
