Perana Z-One by Zagato: more details and photos revealed

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Within two weeks, two new performance vehicles were announced in the country making South Africa rapidly become a center for sports car development.

Previously the Barnard supercar was unveiled, a menacing, all-black Le Mans style racecar with the powerplant derived from Porsche. Now, information is coming in about a handmade Grand Tourer powered by a Corvette-derived V8.

This new GT will be in time for next weeks Geneva Motor Show and also the time when the team behind the tourer will start receiving orders.

The available images point to really stunning interior design with high-end materials. There will only be 999 models of the GT expected to be built and each will come with a $115,400 price tag.

The reason for this limited run is because each Perana Z-One body will be made by hand in Italy by coachbuilder Zagato and then shipped in pieces to South Africa where they will be attached to the chassis of the car, which was thought out and developed by Perana engineers in South Aftrica.

Power under the hood comes from a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 unit gotten from GM. The engine is capable of producing a sprint rate of 0-60mph in under 4 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 200mph.

The car, with the absence of electronic driving support like ABS or ESP, will be totally a driver’s car.
