1999 Panoz AIV Roadster
Cars Dawydiak is proud to offer for sale a 1999 Panoz AIV Roadster with only 2,900 original miles and has been registered in San Francisco CA since new. This is an incredibly rare car that that some would consider the only open wheel american roadster from that era which actually pleases the driving enthusiast community. This car has been garaged kept its whole life and its condition level is appropriate for a super low mileage collector car.
The AIV featured an engine sourced from the Ford Mustang SVT Cobra. This was one of the 4.6-liter modular V-8 engines, with DOHC and 4 valves per cylinder, generating 305 horsepower and 300 ft-lb of torque. The AIV was offered only with a 5-speed manual transmission, again from the SVT Cobra. This combination was good for a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds, a quarter mile time of 13.5 seconds, and a top speed of 140 mph.
Just 176 production examples (plus 6 prototypes) of the AIV were made from 1996 to 1999, so collectors will never have more than one or two to choose from at any given time. The research we have done suggests that we have by far the most reasonable price expectations of any AIV Roadster on the market today, especially when you consider the mileage, condition, color combo and ownership history.
