REVVING UP THE ACTION: “Fast Five” Pantera is Headed to the Las Vegas Auction

Written by Nicole Ellan James

2023 LAS VEGAS AUCTION – 1972 DE TOMASO PANTERA “FAST FIVE” MOVIE CAR – NO RESERVE

Picture this: You are a part of the Fast Family we all know and love. You are hanging onto the back of a Mongo truck, an off-road-style flatbed with monster truck-style suspension built specifically for the heist, as it’s racing through the desert towards a speeding train. The truck pulls up alongside the train when Dominic “Dom” Toretto, played by Vin Diesel, and the team start cutting into the side of a train car where Brian O’Conner, played by the late Paul Walker, is hidden with Dom’s sister Mia. The first car stolen from the train is a beautiful 1972 De Tomaso Pantera.

The Pantera is expertly pulled onto the bed of the Mongo truck. The truck’s bed rises, allowing the car to roll off the bed with an expert driver behind the wheel who makes the escape and drifts through the desert. Of course, there are more cars for the Fast fam to steal, like a beautiful blue Ford GT40 and a silver Corvette. But the Pantera from this adrenalin-pumping, high-action train scene from the “Fast Five” movie, the fifth installment in the “Fast & Furious” franchise, is headed to the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas Auction, June 22-24 in the West Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center and is selling with No Reserve.

The 1972 Pantera offered is the original car from the movie scene. It has been restored to movie-correct brilliant black paint with white graphics and tinted windows and received new Vader power-window motors. The black exterior is complemented by the original movie car’s 17-inch Campagnolo wheels that have been polished and wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The black interior of the Pantera includes an aftermarket battery shutoff and roll bar for stunt safety and camera mounting. The spare tire, luggage rack, air conditioning, heater motor and windshield wipers have been removed.

Under the mid-engine hood of the Pantera is a 351ci Cleveland engine fitted with an Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, Carter 750 carburetor and thermostatic electric radiator fan with MSD electronic ignition. The engine is bolted to a ZF 5-speed manual transmission with a new clutch. The headlights, brake lights, turn signals and reverse lights all work normally.

The owner acquired the Pantera in 2013 from a Universal Studios consignor, then restored it. The Pantera has its own limited-edition Hot Wheels model car, pictured on the “Fast Five” limited-edition Hot Wheels packaging. The Hot Wheels model and a Deluxe Marti Report for the Pantera are included with the purchase.

With the winning bid, one lucky person will own a piece of “Fast & Furious” history, the 1972 De Tomaso Pantera from the iconic train heist scene in “Fast Five.” As that winning bidder takes possession of the car, they are sure to feel a connection to the Fast Family and become a part of the franchise’s legacy, owning a piece of the action-packed adventure that fans have come to love.

Beach Boy: A surf-ready Yamaha WR155R scrambler from Thailand

A surfboard rack on a motorcycle might seem like a gimmick to some, but if you live in Bali and love surfing, it’s a downright necessity. The Indonesian island is peppered with surf spots—and a small bike with a rack is the best way to get to them. It doesn’t hurt if that motorcycle looks as good as this Yamaha WR155R scrambler.

The bike was built by Dream Fast Co. for Tiw, the founder of the Laem Yah Rayong Surf Club. Both parties are based in Thailand, but the influence came directly from Bali’s motorcycle and surf culture. Tiw has Balinese friends who use vintage enduro bikes to find hard-to-reach surf spots, and wanted to capture that vibe in his Yamaha WR155R.

Dream Fast Co.’s mandate was to take the modern and reliable WR155R and inject it with a big dose of classic Yamaha dirt bike style. It sounds simple enough on paper, but in reality, it meant wading through piles of plastic to shed the WR155R’s contemporary aesthetic.

Once the Yamaha was denuded of its plastics, the Dream Fast Co. crew set about reworking its lines. The subframe was hacked off, and a new one was fabricated, this time with a kicked-up loop at the back. A new seat sits up top; it’s designed for one, but there is a smidge of space out back if you and your passenger want to get extremely cozy.
