1982-1990 PANTHER Kallista specifications Classic and Performance Car

After financial troubles forced owner Robert Jankel to sell Panther, the marque ended up in the hands of a Korean conglomerate. Under them, the Lima evolved into the Kallista. Instead of a glassfibre body, it used aluminium over a steel chassis, and the Vauxhall mechanicals were replaced by a series of Ford engines from four-cylinder 1597cc up to 2935cc V6. Although manufacture came to an end in 1990, the SsangYong Motor Company came back with a badge-engineered version of the roadster in 1992, but a mere 73 were made.
