It’s been more than a year since we were first introduced to the Puritalia 427, but it looks like the low-weight, high-horsepower roadster is one step closer to hitting the road. As an update about the car’s progress, Puritalia has released three images of the first production 427 as it prepares for testing.
According to the car’s building, the Puritalia 427 is a modern-day interpretation of the Shelby Cobra, and it’s hard to argue with specs that include a 2,403-pound curb weight and engine options consisting of a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 producing 445 horsepower or a supercharged option cranking out 605 hp.
Puritalia has not revealed any information the car’s testing or details as to when it will go on sale – let alone at what price – but we’re still enamored by this reimagined version of the most iconic roadsters of all time.
