Puritalia 427 sports car teased image

Puritalia has recently released the first teaser image with its latest creation, the 427 sports car, which is actually a modern day representation of the legendary Shelby Cobra.

Puritalia is the name of the newest brand of high performance vehicles and even if the economic crisis in Europe is getting worse, the car companies are breeding by the day. Puritalia is a name which is not telling us too much but starting today we will hear more and more about it and, considering the fact that it’s born in the same country as Ferrari and Lamborghini, it makes us wonder if this will be the new Pagani, but to find out the answer to that question we have to wait a couple of years.

Enough is enough and we’d better move on to more serious stuff, like the 427 sports car signed by Puritalia and teased above. The Puritalia 427 is coming with a large grille, ventilated front fenders, LED-infused headlights, side-mounted exhaust system and interesting alloy wheels. Power to the Puritalia 427 will come from a V8 engine which will put down 439 HP in the regular version and 597 HP in the supercharged variant. The 427 is weighing less than 1,000 kg (2,205 lbs) but this is about all we’ve got on it. The Puritalia 427 will be officially unveiled on the 1st of July and it will hit the production line in early 2013.
