It’s UK Debut
Since the Puritalia Automobili Berlinetta made its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show, we’ve not heard much about the stunning supercar. Now, reports indicate that the car will make its UK debut at the Salon Privé in September. The model is a beautiful blend of Italian styling, high horsepower, and a modern hybrid powertrain. Paolo Parente, the CEO and co-founder of the company, sounded excited about the event. He said the following, according to EVO:
“We are thrilled to present our Berlinetta for the first time in the UK at this year’s Salon Privé. The huge interest we have received from the UK proves how much the British motor culture still appreciates traditional skills and craftsmanship where Italians cars, just like the British ones, are second to none.”
The hybrid powertrain of the Puritialia Berlinetta is one of its many notable features. The V8 engine and electric motor put out 965 hp and 920 lb-ft of torque. For perspective, that’s more powerful than the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari.
That kind of power output is said to make the car’s 0-62 mph time a mere 2.7 seconds. The car is said to have a top speed of 208 mph. It has a carbon-fiber body and a perfect 50:50 weight distribution, making it an excellent car to drive in just about any road or racetrack.
Each of the Berlinettas produced will be made to the customer’s exact specifications. Each car will take well over 800 hours to build. Only 150 of the cars will be made.
