The Prius might have made hybrids synonymous with slow drivers, but the Puritalia Berlinetta will never be associated with that stigma. A powerful V8 engine sits at the front of the Berlinetta, while an electric motor can be found at the rear. In total, this hybrid powertrain produces 951 hp, 920 lb-ft of torque, and the ability to easily launch drivers forward in a rush of adrenaline-inducing speed.
From the 50/50 weight distribution to the use of a carbon fiber and aluminum chassis, everything about the Puritalia Berlinetta was carefully measured. The car even features futuristic artificial intelligence that can learn driving styles to better manage electric power.
The Puritalia Berlinetta is limited to 150 units, which means that drivers will have the flexibility of customizing to their heart’s content. And with a personal design team at the ready, customizing the Puritalia Berlinetta will be much more than simply choosing from preset trim levels. Like the good old days of the 50s and 60s, when Italian cars were handcrafted to exacting specifications, each of the 150 Puritalia Berlinettas can be entirely unique. Stay tuned as the true beauty and scope of this car is revealed in the upcoming months.
