Geneva 2019 - Puritalia Berlinetta [w/Video]
Puritalia unveils the custom- made, 965hp super-hybrid Berlinetta at Geneva International Motor Show
Only 150 will be made for demanding car enthusiasts who want the experience of having their unique car built to their specifications.
Puritalia Automobili, the custom-made, handcrafted, high-tech Italian sports car maker, presents its new car, the Berlinetta: a super-hybrid 965 hp, total carbon fiber body fuoriserie at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show.
Puritalia Automobili was founded by Paolo Parente, who partnered with car designer Fabio Ferrante, to build fuoriserie cars in the spirit of the Golden Years of Italian automobile design using the most advanced technologies.
The Berlinetta, a project that was four years in the making, is the Puritalia experience at its best. A handcrafted, custom-made Italian sports car that offers a super-hybrid engine – managed by Artificial Intelligence based proprietary software – in a Berlinetta style carbon fiber body that offers the ideal 50/50 weight distribution for the perfect driving experience.
Exclusively built-to-order for the demanding car connoisseur, the Berlinetta will be unveiled for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show on March, 7th, 2019.
What is missing in today's supercar market, is the unique experience of having your car handcrafted to your own specifications, like it used to be in the Golden Years of the Italian automobile designs of the 50's and 60's.
The Puritalia experience provides this unique experience to the most demanding car enthusiast and collector. You can't buy a Berlinetta: it will be made-to-order, to your personal specifications. A real fuoriserie a totally unique car in the world today.
Only 150 Berlinettas will be made.
Each Berlinetta requires an enormous amount of time to make: 800 hours just for all carbon-fiber painting and finishing. That is more than some "industrial" supercars take for the entire building process to be completed.
"We like to think that we don't sell our cars. We entrust them to owners who can take care of them and enjoy them, because they understand and appreciate the exacting technical details and the care we put into building them."
– Paolo Parente, CEO & Founder
