When it comes to any marquee event, we get to see some of the best cars even before they make their public debut. This time too, we get more than a sneak at the new Puritalia Berlinetta. It will make its official debut at tomorrow’s Geneva Motor Show on 14:15 CET. Puritalia Berlinetta looks like a lot like 427 Roadster which was revealed four years ago. Apart from some exterior changes, there is an inclusion of fixed roof. Berlinetta offers an output of 951hp (965PS) and 1248 Nm of torque thanks to hybrid powertrain.
It combines V8 engine at the front with an electric motor at the rear. However, these are not the official figures. Puritalia took more than four years to come up with Berlinetta. It heavily uses carbon fiber/aluminum chassis and carbon fiber body panels. To give a perfect 50:50 weight distribution, everything is perfectly measured and placed. To make it more enticing ready for future, Puritalia Berlinetta comes with cloud based Artificial Intelligence that will learn driver’s driving pattern so that it can manage electric power to its efficient best.
Production of Puritalia Berlinetta will be limited to 150 units and customers can personalize it based on their liking. This Italian based company also stated that buyers will get full access to a personal design team. In a statement, Puritalia stated that nowadays what is lacking from many automakers is the unique experience of handcrafting ones vehicle. This norm was quite common in Golden Years of the Italian automobile designs of the ‘50s and ‘60s”.
