Puritalia 427

The rebirth of the AC Cobra is a phrase we’ve all heard countless times before, but the Puritalia 427 is a thoroughly modern slant on the legend. It is also a brute; or it will be. The Naples, Italy based start-up is aiming to deliver the first cars in 2015. Weighing just 2,400 pounds, the 427 will come with two engine options. The first is a mildly mental, naturally aspirated 5.0-liter GM lump pumping out 445 horsepower. The second is a supercharged option knocking out a thoroughly indecent 605 horsepower. It also looks incredible, and we cannot wait for the finished production car, even though it will cost up to $200,000 when it finally arrives on our shores.Puritalia 427 photo1Puritalia 427 photo2Puritalia 427 back
