Puritalia 427: First official photos and info

Puritalia Automobili, an Italian limited series sport car manufacturer, presented their 427 model, a sports car influenced by the legendary history of the American muscle cars that the designers wanted to give a touch of Italian design. The two-seater roadster is a homage to the Shelby Cobra 427 which incorporates some key lines of design, recasting them in a modern style. The body is composed of panels made of carbon fiber and composite material, while the aluminum frame presents some structural reinforcement steel. A very good choice of materials for this type of car.

As the car from which it was inspired, the proud Puritalia 427 philosophy “many horses, little weight” stands, stopping the scales at only 1,090 kg divided equally between the two axles of the car. It is 4.35 meters long, 1.95 meters wide and 1.25 meters high. The car has a wheelbase of 260 cm and the chassis has been developed for fluid handling in order to maximize driving pleasure. The suspension consists of a double wishbone on all wheels combined with adjustable dampers and antiroll bars to get the perfect setup for each path.
