Perana Z-one Background 

The Perana project is the result of legendary Milanese coachbuilder Zagato's nine-decade-long expertise in constructing specially-bodied sports cars and GTs for some of Europe's most established makes. The first car to be designed as a bespoke project, the Z-one is very much a back to basics, no frills sports car which demands driver input beyond that required by the established players in this segment of the market. 

The use of emission-compliant GM E-Rod LS-series crate engines ensures high performance, drivability, reliability and serviceability. The General Motors Performance Parts crate engines also come with a full 24-month, 50,000-mile warranty from GMPP. Limited to just 99 units per annum, there is no car currently available that boasts this level of exclusivity, power, performance and styling...especially at such an unparalleled price.
