The Panther Lima was a retro-styled roadster of the 1970s that was built by Panther. It used Vauxhall Viva and Magnum mechanicals, including that car's 2.3 Litre engine. A later Mark II model used a purpose-built chassis. The body was built of fibreglass in a roadster style reminiscent of an Allard or Morgan. The Lima was produced in volume, with over 500 built by the time of the introduction of the Lima Turbo in February 1979. The Turbo Lima was fitted with 14-inch alloy wheels, and had a TURBO graphic on the bonnet. The turbocharged version, with an engine developed in Southern California, had 178 hp rather than the 108 hp of the original and a claimed 0-100 km/h acceleration time of less than six seconds.

Production lasted from 1976 through 1982 with 897 cars produced. It was replaced by the similar Panther Kallista.

This rare Panther Lima is described by the vendor as being in very good condition and to drive very well. The car comes with chrome wire wheels including the spare, and benefits from a new cam belt which was done in June when the car was recommissioned and MOTd. The recorded 52,000 miles is warranted, and the car also comes with a good hood and tonneau cover. the last owner had the car for 13 years and was a Panther Club member.
