Perana Z-One is a South African supercar styled by the famous
Italian design firm Zagato.
The Perana name is well known amongst performance car fans in
South Africa as the name was given to a range of Ford vehicles
tuned by Basil Green Motors in Johannesburg back in the 70s
However unlike the old Perana vehicles the Z-One is powered
by a GM sourced engine, a 6.2 litre LS3 V8 to be exact. Mounted
up front this engine should give the coupe fantastic performance
while also being easily serviced and long lasting.
Each curvaceous body of the Perana Z-One will be individually
created by Zagato before being sent to South Africa where it
will be joined to the chassis and drivetrain.
The body itself manages to be both classically proportioned
and contemporarily styled. It also incorporates a number of
Zagato trademark styling details like the double bubble roof
and hidden 'Z' built into the b-pillar.
In total only 999 examples of the Perana Z-One are due to be
