Perana Z-One coming to the US market
Zagato unveiled the Perana Z-One as a concept at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show and followed it with a production version in 2010. The Perana Z-One was the first sports car to come from South Africa and we are pleased to inform you that the vehicle will now be available for the US market. An official debut will be made in August at the Concorso Italiano and the Z-One will then go on sale at a price of aprox. $100,000. The US market will have 99 units allocated just for them with Superformance being the US distributor.
The Perana Z-One is powered by either a 436-HP E-rod LS3 or the 505-HP LS7 engine from the Z06. The two engines will be combined with a six-speed manual transmission and a ZF limited slip differential. There’s no word yet on if this rear-wheel drive car also borrows other bits from GM’s part’s bin, but we do know that its weight is down to a svelte 2634 lbs. This should be good for a 0 to 60 mph time in about 4 seconds.
