Meanwhile, the Panoz is an extremely rare offer. One of only 10 AIV Roadsters were ever produced as it was made as part of the 10th Anniversary Edition. And only three of the AIV cars had a Kenny Bell supercharged version of the 4.6-liter V8 from the Mustang SVT Cobra straight from the factory. It is also equipped with a five-speed Borg Warner T45 manual gearbox.

The Panoz also have an AIV (Aluminum Intensive Vehicle) designation meaning that it is made from 70% aluminum including its chassis and frame that has a central backbone. This equates to a total weight of only 2500lb.

The Panoz was given a titanium gray finish and a blue leather interior and sport seats. The blue leather extends to the dashboard, door cards, and center console. The center console was also given carbon-fiber trim inlays.
