By Staff
HOSCHTON - Hundreds of Panoz fans, followers and owners were on hand as Panoz LLC executives unveiled the first 25th Anniversary Edition Esperante Spyder Thursday night at company heaquarters in Hoschton.

The first example of the exclusive two-seat sports car features a red exterior, carbon fiber accents, a tan leather interior with the latest technologies, a powerful V8 engine, and it was signed by the Panoz craftsmen who hand built the all-new creation.

Panoz LLC President and COO Bill Orr kicked off the presentation and introduced Don Panoz and his son Dan, who both shared anecdotes from the Panoz sports car and endurance racing history with the crowd.

According to John Leverett, Snr.vice president of sales and marketing, the 25th Anniversary Edition Esperante Spyder is a special exclusive model which celebrates the company's racing heritage as well as Panoz sports cars of the past 25 years. It is the direct result of close technological collaboration among the various Panoz affiliates, including Élan Motorsports Technologies, Élan Composites, Panoz Engineering Services, and Panoz LLC.

Panoz LLC expects to produce about 25 examples of the 25th Anniversary Edition Esperante Spyder and Spyder GT to commemorate the anniversary milestone. Production will be intentionally limited to a handful of custom builds for select customers, keeping with the Panoz LLC's goal of creating America's most exclusive custom sports car.
