Following in the footsteps of Zagato's long tradition of designing some of the most beautiful sports cars made in the last century, the Perana Z-one is no mere dream car. The Zagato Design Centre has styled the Perana Z-one with the same spirit as they have designed all their prestigious limited series marques, mainly for Collectors.

The Perana Z-one is Zagato's first car specifically designed for low volume commercial production. In line with Zagato's new direction, sales of the Perana Z-one will be limited to 999 cars per annum within Europe, thereby assuring ongoing exclusivity and to commemorate the 90 years of Zagato design.

Functionalism and Rationalism are elements that have always inspired Zagato-designed sports cars and the design of the Perana Z-one resonates with the Zagato styling heritage "Simple, Light and Aerodynamic".

The Perana Z-one is defined by its particularly aggressive front and the sculpted sides that rise over the rear wheel arch. That, along with stylish interior appointments, contributes to the overall feel of speed and fluency.

By effortlessly encapsulating the Perana Z-one's uncomplicated flowing lines, lightweight construction methods and a return to purist racing traditions where driver input reigns supreme, makes the Perana Z-one breathtaking.

The iconic Perana Z-one was designed with the intent of returning to driving fundamentals, where driver input reigns supreme. From the innovative tubular and box section chassis to the exciting interior styling, the Perana Z-one is a concentration of advanced design and engineering that synthesises raw power, racing technology and design excellence to deliver the ultimate driver's car.

Fully certifiable for the road, this ultra high-performance, front-engined sports coupé uses a powerful 6.2 litre V8 engine to drive the rear wheels. The Perana Z-one is a genuine 2-seater coupé that enjoys the benefits of 50/50 weight distribution allowing for exhilarating, balanced and predictable road manners.

The powerful 6.2 litre V8 engine produces 330kW and allows the Perana Z-one to attain a 0-100km/h figure of under 4 seconds and reach 0-160km/h in under 10 seconds.

The secret to the Perana Z-one's iconic performance is the near perfect combination of its supremely powerful engine, light weight design, balanced weight distribution and 6-speed performance transmission.
