Perana Z-One: South African-Built, Zagato-Bodied And Corvette-Powered

This is the Perana Z-One. With a beautiful skin lovingly crafted by Zagato and a 6.2-liter V8 Corvette engine under the hood, there's nothing about this 999-unit two-seater that doesn't scream hot sex.

We're still waiting for the full press release, but here's what we know — the Perana Z-one is the first fruits of a collaboration between Milanese coachbuilders Zagato and a newly formed South African Vehicle Manufacturer called Perana Performance Group. It'll be built in South Africa as a 999-unit limited-run (as opposed to Zagato's normal 99-unit run) 2-seater coupe. Thanks to a Corvette LS3 under the hood, it'll also be fast — with a 0-to-62 time of under four seconds. The price? Around R750 000 (or around $115,400 $75,000 for those of us who barter in greenbacks).

The Perana Z-One will be revealed officially at the Geneva Motor Show next month, so for the moment, we'll have to make due with the renderings and sketches above. Frankly, if it's this sexy rendered, we can't wait to see what it'll look like in the real-life sheet metal.
