1984 Panther Kallista 2.8 V6


  • Two owners from new
  • Lovely condition
  • Very low mileage
  • Soft top hood

The Background

The Panther Kallista was a direct descendant from the Lima, built by The Panther Westwinds Company in the late ’70’s. 1984 was to prove the most successful year ever for Kallista with 401 cars built and UK registration of 238 cars.

The History

The car was a one owner car up until 2018.

There are three owners shown because the lady owner was the wife of the original owner who bought the car new, she registered it after her husband’s death but hardly drove it and reluctantly sold it to the present owner in 2018. For the following two years it was kept stored in his garage.

The MOT certificates show the mileage is very low, from 33,000 to 36,000 in about 10-15 years!

The present owner has done a lot to the car mechanically with a replacement gearbox and a new heavy duty clutch, and new starter motor around two years ago. The fuel pump has also been replaced including the front pads and rear shoes. Most of the servicing was done by both sellers.

The car drives beautifully, and is a solid honest real head turner wherever you go!

The Paperwork

The usual V5 is present along with a record of the MOT tests since 2006 up to the current ownership. There are some of the receipts of the work carried out along with the the Kallista's owner's handbook and service book.

The Interior

The interior is in lovely condition. The seats are immaculate with lovely red piping all round. Additionally, the dashboard is very clean for its age with no visible damage.

The clocks and gauges are in fantastic condition also.

Under the drivers side floor mat, there is some carpet wear on the floor, as can be seen in the pictures, but nothing serious.

The seats easily fold forward for access to the boot area.

The Exterior

The body looks stunning in RED and overall is in fabulous condition!

There is a small ding on the bonnet that can be seen at certain angles and one on the side fender, but you need to look hard to see the one on the side.

The Mechanics

The engine has had very light use over the years hence the low mileage.

As noted above, gearbox and heavy duty clutch, starter motor fuel pump and brake pads and shoes all round have been replaced and that certainly will reassure you this car has been cherished thought its life.

The Pull down roof is in good condition all round, although there are very slight signs of wear were it joins to the windscreen.

The Appeal

This car appeals to anyone who loves and enjoys driving in all conditions wet or dry!

If you want a drivers car with sporty handling and plenty of road presence, and a reliable solid car, you won't be disappointed.

It’s the type of car that puts a smile on your face weather your driving or a passenger.

Certainty a sound investment all round owning a British Classic!

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 5-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
