Zagato's New Perana Z-One in Person at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show
Of all the countries in the world producing sportscars, South Africa may not spring to mind first. A small sportscar-maker called Noble operates there, and we recently reported on the new Barnard, but at the ongoing Geneva Motor Show this year, a new player called Perana popped onto the scene with the Z-One. Designed by venerated Milanese styling house Zagato - the same people who brought us the one-of-a-kind Ferrari 575 GTZ, the Spyker C12 concept car and the $1.7m Bentley Continental GTZ - the Z-One was perhaps the most beautiful new car presented at this year's Geneva Motor Show...and that's saying a lot. Power is provided by a Corvette-sourced V8 engine, and prices start at 50,000 euros. Not chump change for most of us, but a steal nonetheless for one of the most breathtaking sportscars money can buy. See for yourself in the gallery below.
