The very original Pink Panther’s ride called “Panther mobile” is all ready to fetch £100,000 in the coming month. This incredible vehicle was featured on the famous T.V show Pink Panther from 1969-1976. This car was an invention of creative a Hollywood automobile designer Jay Ohrberg, who also made KITT from Knight Rider and DeLorean from Back to the Future and has designed many Bat mobiles.

The “Panther mobile” was usually seen in the opening and closing of “The Pink Panther Show”, encouraged by the films starring Peter Sellers as useless inspector “Clouseau”.

Mr. Jay Ohrberg owned the car himself till he sold it out for £88,000 in 2007 at an auction. Jonathan Kay then owned this car and he gave a review that “The motor vehicle was in perfectly original condition, and would benefit from some sympathetic restoration as the car is now 42 years old”. The engine is supposedly not working currently but was believed to be running well when the vehicle was auctioned in 2007.

The ‘Panthermobile is set to be sold in an online sale run by Manchester based firm ‘Robson Kay’. This super invention is believed to fetch around £50,000 to £100,000.
