CLICK HERE FOR LA CARRERA PANAMERICANA HISTORICAL SCENES FROM THE FIFTIES
Speaking of time machines, today I read something that might happen in the auto world that is nothing short of simply amazing. One of the greatest cars of all time was the Packard and the Packards played a major role in the history of the La Carrera Panamericana and now there is a very good chance the Packard will make a comeback. Can you just imagine seeing a new Packard entered in the La Carrera Panamericana? These are thoughts that race car drivers only dream of.
From CLASSIC CAR.COM here are what they have to say...
Resurrecting the Packard
If the folks at the Packard® Motor Car Company have anything to say about it, it will be. The intention is for the new Packard to feature a 460-horse 525 cubic inch aluminum V12 engine with 520 ft.-lb. of torque. The New Packard Project has been in the works for some time, and the most recent news is of October 2006, when the company reported a funding proposal was nearing completion. More photos and specifications are available at the Packard Motor Car Company website. No word on potential MSRP, but the company indicates the car will compete in the ultra-luxury segment.
