There’s no shortage of sports cars coming out of Lo Stivale (The Boot), but that doesn’t mean that this new Milanese artisan manufacturer isn’t going to follow its dreams of building a sophisticated, custom-built sports car for the world to see - and hopefully buy. Juliani Automobili, a recently launched Italian maker, has revealed the first details on their first ever sports car: the Veela. This model was built with the amount of passion it takes to take on Italian foes such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Bugatti, and that passion is clearly illustrated in the look of the Veela.
Built on a space-frame chassis, the Veela is powered by a 6.2L V8 engine mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. This combination delivers a total of 520hp at 6300 rpm, which isn’t too shabby considering the company’s short time in business. But is it enough to challenge the Italian sports car veterans? Probably not, but it will be interesting to see them try.
