1 OF 14 SILVER PANOZ AIV ROADSTERS PRODUCED IN 1999 AND 1 OF 176 TOTAL EVER PRODUCED FOR THE PUBLIC BETWEEN 1997-1999.
DON’T YOU DESERVE IT?
NEAR FLAWLESS, ULTRA LOW MILEAGE EXAMPLE OF WHAT HAS BEEN TERMED “THE GREAT AMERICAN ROADSTER”
I have had the unique pleasure of owning a total of 6 PANOZ ROADSTERS in the past 3 years. I say unique because there were only a total of 44 Pre-AIV Roadsters built and a total of 176 AIV Roadsters sold to the public. Of those I have owned 1 Pre-AIV and 5 AIV models. This particular AIV that you are viewing is as near flawless as any I have owned. I think after you have a chance to view all of the pics and see and hear the videos you will agree that THIS IS THE ONE TO OWN!
Each of the Panoz Roadsters I have sold have gone to individuals who are real car people, meaning they have or have had a great collection of cars including American Muscle, Hot Rods, and other exotics. The first AIV Roadster I sold went to a great car guy in VA who owned a Viper, Shelby Cobra, Prowler, Chevy SSR among others and the week after he got it he sent me an email saying that the AIV Roadster was now the family favorite. I assure you that if you enjoy owning a unique, investment quality, performance piece of automotive history then you need to own one of these at some point in your lifetime. Lets face it, what better time of year then now to have one in your garage waiting to be driven. This Silver beauty was acquired from a gentleman who was meticulous and absolutely loved this car, however a bad car accident left his wife with some serious injuries that prevented her from getting in and out of this car as well as some large medical bills that needed to be addressed. This car was extremely well cared for and was taken to the local car shows where he enjoyed the attention he always received from people who had never seen a Panoz. These are just amazing and unique cars that a true car aficionado needs to experience! I am far from an expert, but having driven 6 other Panoz AIV Roadsters in the last few years I can tell you that this one is as strong if not stronger then any of them and puts a smile on my face every time I drive it….truly awesome performance! Keep in mind this one has under 6600 miles!! I will do my best to honestly describe it and provide enough pictures and a video of it running to help you decide if this is the one for you. Enjoy!
NEAR FLAWLESS best describes the body on this Silver AIV Roadster. I ran a carfax prior to buying it and there have been no accidents and I do not see any evidence of paintwork on this amazingly low mileage 2 owner exotic. There is a small spot when you open the drives side door where the clear coat has peeled just a bit. This is all that I see that keeps me from saying that this car is completely perfect. These cars sit very low and the open fender design tends to send small rocks flying which is why Panoz designed the rear fenders with the black rock guards. Most of the AIV roadsters will have small stone peck marks or chips in this area…this one does not! The paint has fantastic and mirror-like luster to it and shines up great. Chrome headlights, suspension, bumper guards and trim all look great. These cars do have tops which fold up and can be stored in the trunk. I have never driven one of these with the top on but I guess its nice to know it’s there if you need it. It has zip out windows and a carrying case. Overall the body presents itself like it came off the factory showroom floor and you need to be ready to get stares, whistles, and questions wherever you go in this truly unique modern muscle machine. Here are a group of pics to show off the body.
The Tan interior of this particular roadster is beautiful and looks close to new! Leather wrapped dash neatly laid out and the center console is painted in the same Silver color as the body. Nardi D Shaped Steering wheel makes getting in and out a bit easier. Very nice Alpine AM/FM/CD player for your listening enjoyment with speakers mounted below the dash, but lets face it the real music is coming out of the dual rear pipes. The ’99 interior has a small storage compartment between the front seats not offered on the ’97-98 models This roadster sits on a set of awesome BBS Rk 18 inch wheels wrapped in an almost brand new set of BFG Radials 295/35/18 rears and 245/40/18 fronts. In addition, this AIV comes with 2 sets of Panoz Logo floor mats. One set was used only for shows and look brand new. Ice cold A/C and plenty of heat if you need it. All of the gauges and electronics are working perfectly. There is also a car alarm security system installed with 2 remotes included. A custom Panoz logo car cover will also be included. Climb in this cockpit, strap in and enjoy the ride of your life! Check out the beautiful interior:
This ’99 Panoz AIV has barely been broken in and has just under 6600 original miles!!
