Morning Symphony: The Hillclimbing DeTomaso Mangusta Filling The Hills With The Sound Of Ford Power

One of my favorite cars ever filmed by sound aficionado 19Bozzy92 is this DeTomaso Mangusta. One of 401 cars made by DeTomaso and one of only a handful left at all, it’s my favorite because it’s not a museum piece or a fully-restored example. Every time this car is filmed, it’s running up a hill with the Ford powerplant in back screaming for attention. We don’t know if that’s a 289 or a 302 hiding under that funky twin-clamshell rear bodywork, and we don’t really care…we’d take it either way. It barks and snarls and howls in the ways that make your skin develop little bumps as a shiver goes down your spine. The driver does take care of the car for obvious reasons, which means no sideways, drifting nonsense, but has zero fear of the long pedal on the right. It’s that part we enjoy the most…and, we assume, the locals might bemoan. Or maybe not…it’s not everyday you get to see a car as wild as the Mangusta cut loose as Alejandro De Tomaso intended.
