American Muscles meet the Italian Design. Puritalia Automobili builds exclusive Italian sport cars designed for purist drivers and car enthusiasts. Our cars are handmade in limited series, leveraging Italian traditional craftsmanship skills. Puritalia follow a bespoke customer-centric approach. Customer is actively involved in the specification and building process of the car. A truly unique piece of art that is a clear expression of your personality and taste.

The Puritalia 427, is inspired by the classic body shapes of the iconic 1965 Shelby Cobra, updated by modern style and enhanced by the distinctive Italian design fingerprint. A light and powerful 2-seater roadster with a prestigious background, designed to offer the best driving experience without giving up comfort and daily driving use.

"We decided to design and engineer the 427 simply because a similar car doesn't exist. It is unique in design, in style, and most importantly in the way we build it. As in the past, simplicity was the idea behind the development of the true 2-seat sports car leaving exotic and extreme solutions out of the equation. The constant research of simplicity is the 427 refinement. The result, a powerful car using best in class technologies and materials to enhance and elevate the drivers experience. An exclusive item to own and designed for those (like us) who still love the pleasure of driving their own car and not be driven by it."
