Panoz GTR 1

This is the first entrance into the world of sportscar racing by Panoz Auto, owned by pharmaceutical giant Donald Panoz, also owner of Road Atlanta and Sebring, and has drawn quite a following so far. It recently won the GT1 class at Sebring, finishing second overall only to a WSC class Ferrari F 333SP. Panoz intends to bring out a street version of this beast, which, if I was 16 and could afford it, I'd buy it in a second.
