Inspired by the 1965 Shelby Cobra, the 427 roadster from Italy’s Puritalia is a sleekly built super-lightweight rear wheel drive sports car. The vehicle features an aggressively styled front fascia on a carbon fiber/composite body, supported by 19 and 20-inch alloy wheels (front and back) with Pirelli P-Zero tires. Engine options take the form of a 5.0-liter V8 good for 439 horsepower and 391 lb-ft of torque, or a supercharged variant with a total output of 597 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque, both of which are mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, combined with a twin-disc clutch and limited slip differential. The 427 will be handmade in small batches, allowing for a high level of customization. Check out the first official images of the sporty roadster in the gallery below. via: WCF
