No major problems; only replacement shock absorbers and radiator needed. This car has been surprisingly trouble free for such a speciality car.
If you are searching to buy a Panther Kallista, it is well worth going for the V6, as the 4-cylinder versions are feeble. The 2.9 litre V6 in my car is the same as in the European Ford Granada Scorpio, and it provides plenty of acceleration power.
Very well made; it certainly feels like a hand-crafted low-production British sports car.
The Kallista handles pretty well and has a reasonable ride, but it can be rather prone to oversteer if pushed too hard.
Very comfortable seats too, in an inviting, but quite cramped interior.
This aluminium bodied sportster is getting pretty rare now.

Please get rid of those annoying pop up adds they spoil your good work and reports.
1985 Panther Kallista L 2.8i Ford V6
Fuel tank corrosion - leads to engine/fuel system problems.
Great fun car to drive. Scary performance, especially in the wet.
As it is old and not used very much, you have to be very careful that the petrol tank doesn't rust, as you can't easily get a new one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
