Puritalia 427 Teaser Video

by Paul Strauss

While most of today’s Italian sports cars take the form of modern supercars like the Ferrari 458 or Lamborghini Huracan, Puritalia Automobili is looking to the past for their inspiration. Their upcoming Puritalia 427 looks like it was teleported from the 1960s, but infused with modern technology. We’ve already seen some work-in-progress images of the powerful Shelby-influenced roadster, but the completed car is now slated for its first public showing.

As previously revealed, the 427 will be powered by a 5.0-liter Ford V8 engine with either 443 horsepower or 605 horsepower if supercharged. Wedded to a car that weighs just 2,535 pounds and has a perfect 50/50 weight balance, it’s sure to be an impressive car.

According to the notes accompanying this video, the car will make its debut in Milan, Italy on December 16, 2014. In the mean time, we’ll just have to appreciate some concept renderings…
