The Mangusta Legacy project is a study of a modern interpretation of the 1965 De Tomaso Mangusta supercar. It was created by designer and illustrator Maxime de Keiser.

Maxime de Keiser is a design graduate who decided to recreate a sportscar inspired by his favorite model of the past, the De Tomaso Mangusta, produced from 1965 to 1971 in just 401 units.

The design of the original Mangusta was penned by Giorgetto Giugiaro, who at the time was working at Turin-based coachbuilder Ghia.

De Tomaso Mangusta 3D model by Maxime de KeiserThe car had a distinctive silhouette with a height of just 1,100 mm, and featured a very large windscreen, gullwing doors, and an essential interior.

Fascinated by this icon, Maxime decided to create a modern reinterpretation of the car, adapting its character to the modern technologies and design trends.

The result is the Mangusta Legacy Concept, an extreme, low sportscar which maintains the main design elements and character of the original.

As the designer explains, “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”.

    Yes, a great interpretation of the De Tomaso Mangusta… but it could be the best interpretation of an actual DeLorean. Both originally designed by Giugiaro.

    I owned a Mangusta and loved the simple yet sophisticated shape and details of the entire car. This modern interpretation succeeds in side view and rear view (without spoiler), but it is overly complicated (too Lamborghini) in the front view. The rear center spine was a major design and engine access element on the original and seems missing on this design. although I seem critical, I would buy a modern Mangusta with this design. It is modern, yet not as severe as the recent Lamborghini’s and retains definate Mangusta heritage.

    Fantastic look, and definitely channels the essence of the original but seems a bit cheated on the roof height. No one with a head would fit inside.
