Italy is known for two things: delectable cuisine and extreme hypercars. But did you know that Lamborghini and Ferrari are not the only superstar supercars to hail from Italy? There are the usual suspects– Pagani, Maserati and DeTomaso, but there is also an emerging start-up exotic carmaker revving things up—Puritalia!
Puritalia 427 teaser
The goal of this unique new carmaker is to provide “simplicity and purity of the driving experience”. Puritalia’s first model will be called “427”—clearly a nod to the most iconic roadster in existence, the Shelby Cobra. You can experience the best slice of automotive history personally when you rent a Shelby Cobra from your friends at Imagine Lifestyles! (Available in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Miami, Chicago and LA!).

The Puritalia 427 will be compact, luxurious and fresh. It will feature a V8 engine kicking out 445 horses with the possibility of a supercharger to bring it up to 605 HP. The official unveil will be this summer, and it will be exclusive, with just 427 units available in 2013.
From the teaser photo, the Puritalia 427 looks like a cross between a Shelby Cobra and a Porsche. What do you think of this swanky newcomer? Comment below! Check out our Porsche rentals and entire fleet of rentals from all the top exotic car brands on your way out!
