Italians know how to make great food. But they also make some pretty sweet looking rides.
The Puritalia 427 is an Italian take on the famous Shelby Cobra 427. Notable design elements include a swooping nose, large circular headlights, rounded rear haunches, and exhausts in front of each rear wheel. It uses an aluminum space frame chassis with chromoly steel subframes and a carbon fiber shell, putting this beast at only 2,403 pounds (with a perfect 50/50 weight balance).
The base 5.0-liter V8 delivers 445 horsepower via a six-speed manual transmission, while a supercharged version pumps out 605 horses.
We should also mention that this probably won’t remain just a concept for long, as Puritalia is likely to put the 427 into limited production.
