Giorgetto Giugiaro unveiled the original design of the De Tomaso Mangusta back in 1965. And now, after more than 40 years, design graduate and digital artist/illustrator, Maxime de Keiser has unveiled a modern interpretation of the car, that we have to admit looks pretty cool.

The original car was built between 1965 and 1971 and was limited to just 401 units. The car was easy to recognize thanks to its distinctive silhouette, its very large windscreen and gullwing doors. Maxime de Keiser has created a modern interpretation of the car that follows the main design elements and character of the original. In designing his car he used modern technologies and design trends of today.

"Like the original, it had to be spectacular and communicate an impression of wild ferocity and power while recalling the serenity of a feline at rest, and the elegance of the animal that doesn’t need to fear anything," said designer and illustrator Maxime de Keiser.

Wow! Looks like similar with George Bush vehicle due to its amazing and high-tech doors. But I prefer this one because I like the metallic body paint, it looks elegant. I’m wondering how much will these cost.
