Panoz will roll into the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance this week with a refreshed Esperante Spyder GT sports car. The Esperante Spyder and the 2012 DeltaWing Roadster race car - a car that changed prototype sports car road racing - will also be displayed.

The 2015 Esperante Spyder and Spyder GT sports cars commemorate the Panoz motorsports heritage and Panoz sports cars of the past 25 years. The company is building no more than 25 examples, intentionally limiting production to ensure they remain special and maintaining the company goal of creating America's most exclusive, custom hand-built sports cars.

The Panoz Esperante Spyder GT features a 560-horspower, supercharged V8 mated to a heavy duty, close-ratio Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual transmission as standard equipment. A six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters is available as an option.

The car wears a lightweight SPF (Superplastic Forming, commonly referred to as 'super formed') aluminum body introduced on previous Panoz models. Carbon fiber and other lightweight composite materials were also used to ensure the total package weights just 3,300 lbs.

Besides the engine, the Spyder GT has other features that differentiate it from the Spyder, including its wide body carbon composite and aluminum panels, side exhausts like the Panoz Esperante GT2 race car, clear-coated carbon fiber front splitter, carbon fiber rear diffuser and side skirts, wider front and rear wheels, and Brembo brakes on all four corners. For those desiring more power, Panoz and Elan Power Products can custom build engines producing 800-plus horsepower.

The Esperante Spyder GT starts at $204,750, wile the less powerful Esperante Spyder starts at $179,120.
