Ron Burgundy's Sex Panther motorcycle

For fans of Anchorman and the extremely pungent and hard to find “Sex Panther” cologne, I give you Sex Panther: The Motorcycle! Yeah, it smells like gasoline too, but that’s because it runs on the stuff! This bike is so fast it’s illegal in nine countries, and it’s made with bits of real panther so you know it’s good. Want to make this little kitty purr? Just hop on and you and the woman of your dreams will be doing the no pants dance within an hour!

Barend Massow Hemmes' custom Jaguar logo motorcycle

(To be completely accurate, this should be called “Brian Fantana’s Sex Panther motorcycle” and it’s actually a Jaguar and not a panther – but the Will Ferrell/Ron Burgundy/Sex Panther angle was better for marketing.)

The custom chopper was built by South African sculptor Barend Massow Heemes, who built the bike to resemble the hood ornament from Jaguar automobiles. He uses the bike to advertise his business but says he’s accepting offers if anyone is interested in purchasing it. Next on Hemmes’ agenda? Building a Red Bull bike!

Don’t have any idea what all these references are to? Here’s the Sex Panther cologne video clip from Anchorman that should explain everything:

Brian Fantana: I’ll give this little cookie an hour before we’re doing the no-pants dance. Time to musk up.

Ron Burgundy: Wow. Never ceases to amaze me. What cologne you gonna go with? London Gentleman, or wait. No, no, no. Hold on. Blackbeard’s Delight.

Brian Fantana: No, she gets a special cologne… It’s called Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries… Yep, it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.

Ron Burgundy: It’s quite pungent.

Brian Fantana: Oh yeah.

Ron Burgundy: It’s a formidable scent… It stings the nostrils. In a good way.

Brian Fantana: Yep.

Ron Burgundy: Brian, I’m gonna be honest with you, that smells like pure gasoline.

Brian Fantana: They’ve done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.

Ron Burgundy: That doesn’t make sense.

Brian Fantana: Well… Let’s go see if we can make this little kitty purr.
