Please click image for enlarged view 

The Amazone Pantera 4502 is proof that a new agricultural machine does not only perform by its potential for efficiency but also by the perfect design. So, at Agritechnica 2013, the newly introduced Pantera also gained the iF Product Design Award 2014 and thus now belongs amongst the winners of the renowned iF label. For more than six decades outstanding design achievements have been honoured by the iF Design Awards.

This prestigious award acknowledges the work of the Amazone’s designers and of the firm ErfoForm Design. They have managed to develop a striking, dynamic and clearly structured design which communicates its performance and high operational speed of the machine just by its appearance. The Pantera also scored well for the optimum all-round visibility from the cab and the functional filling and access concept because operator comfort and service friendliness of the design were also assessed positively.

With this teamwork of design and performance, the Pantera 4502, which is registered in the category “transportation design/specialist vehicles”, convinced and inspired the iF Jury which consists of experts and designers from all over the world. The evaluation criterions of the Jury also included, apart from the design concept, its finish and selection of materials, the level of innovation and the environmental friendliness, the functionality and ergonomics and finally its intuitive use and safety.
