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.

I am not really impressed with this body; but I know it’s Perana Z-One’s trademark. A simple yet competitive car can actually standout on its high power performance.

I think its not ugly. I’ve seen its photos and its perfectly high engineered developed car. One of its secret weapon is its powerful engine.

Will that tube steel chassis pass NHTSB crash tests? Or will it be sold like the Super performance Cobras, a completed car minus the engine?

As I can see, It reminds me of the Chevy-powered Cheetah of the mid-60s, but this one has a bigger schnoz. Am sure this car is going to be a
very competitive car in the market.

I’ve never seen a car thats so hit and miss, depending on which angle you’re looking from.

I saw this as an opportunity to pursue my dream. I built the car with local guys — a small but competent, enthusiastic and professional engineering production team at St Albans.
