History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Puritalia Berlinetta page on 22 March 2021, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Puritalia Berlinetta is a hybrid grand tourer manufactured by Italian automobile manufacturer Puritalia Automobili. Introduced at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it is the first car produced by the company. The car is intended to be a representation of the classic grand touring cars produced in the 1960s.

The Berlinetta is an evolution of the 427 Roadster, a modern interpretation of the AC Cobra, introduced in concept form in 2012.

Production of the Berlinetta will be limited to 150 units and each car will be hand-built according to the customer's desire. The cars will be sold to selected "brand ambassadors" who appreciate the car as stated by the company.

Internal Combustion Engine (ICE)

The ICE is a 5.0-litre Ford double overhead camshaft V8 engine accompanied by a 2.9-litre twin-screw type supercharger. The block of the engine is cast from aluminium by a US supplier and is shipped to Italy for completion. The engine has a power output of 750 PS (552 kW; 740 hp) and 848 N⋅m (625 lb⋅ft) of torque. The buyers have the option to engrave their name on the block of the engine. The engine has a longitudinal front mid-mounted position in order to achieve a 50/50 weight distribution.

Electric motor

The axial-flow electric motor is supplied by Britain based YASA Limited and weighs 25 kg (55 lb). It is mounted on the rear axle of the car and has a power output of 215 PS (158 kW; 212 hp) and 370 N⋅m (273 lb⋅ft) of torque.

The combined power output of the powertrain amounts to 965 PS (710 kW; 952 hp) and 1,248 N⋅m (920 lb⋅ft) of torque.
