Description

1997 Panoz AIV Roadster Like New with all the books and clean history this Panoz is investment ready. Enjoy ownership of a vehicle that not only is unique but also thrives in the what is the American Dream. A man with a vision, the desire to build, and stand for something bigger than himself created this well regarded company and graced us with these performance machines for years. During the AIV's three year lifespan, just 176 examples were produced. Only 49 were produced in 1997 and ONLY 4 IN BLUE! These were vehicles that were ahead of their time, with an all-aluminum space frame chassis giving it an incredible power to weight ratio. Weighing just 2,570 lbs. curb weight and powered by a hand built, all aluminum 4 cam SVT Cobra V8 offering 305 horsepower, these were very fast. Zero-to-sixty took just 4.3 seconds. Other feathers include leather interior with a carbon fiber trim, premium sound system, white instrument dials, 18' five spoke Roush wheels, coil over suspension and Mustang Cobra brakes. The handmade Panoz AIV Roadster was introduced in 1992 by the Panoz Auto Development Company of Georgia. This was the work of Dan Panoz with the design courtesy of Frank Costin. Under the hood was a Ford power-plant that produced over 300 horsepower. Zero-to-sixty was under five seconds for this front-engined, rear-wheel drive sportster. The first cars were produced using aluminum and this was the inception for the name AIV - Aluminum Intensive Vehicle. Many of the mechanics were from the Ford Motor Car Company. The early versions of the Roadster had a stainless steel space fram chassis with aluminum body. In 1997 this was changed to an aluminum frame with steel subframe. Under the hood was now an aluminum Ford 32-DOHC V8. The suspension was independent in both the front and rear. Production lasted until 1999 with 10 being produced in 2000 as special edition Signature Edition AIV Roadsters. They were given superchargers and special paint colors. When production of the AIV Roadster ended, the Panoz Esperante began.
