Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Panther 6 1977 Inspired by the Tyrrell P34 Grand Prix car, Panther-Westwinds owner Robert Jankell started work on his six-wheeled supercar late in 1976 with it making its debut at the London Motor Fair the following October. At the front there were two sets of Vauxhall Viva suspension while power came from a front wheel-drive 8.2 litre Cadillac V8, mounted beneath a vast rear deck complete with its automatic transaxle and suspension. As this was intended to be the fastest car in production, a pair of turbos was added for good measure. Only one car was officially built and its whereabouts are unknown, but a second was assembled from parts after Panther folded. The car was re-painted a few times and is modelled in what appears to be its second incarnation, with the original black paint but the chrome trim removed. The overall shape of the model looks very good and the paintwork is excellent. On our sample the windscreen trim hasnít been fitted quite centrally, so thereís a gap on one side and a crease on the other. Also, in press photos of the rear car the folded roof is visible, but there is a clean area behind the seats on the model. Not perfect but a great subject.
Very well finished mass-produced resin models. As the name suggests, subjects chosen are often the more unusual cars to have raced. Paint finishes usually very good. Some models feature photo-etched components. Made in China.
