The acclaimed Zagato-styled Perana Z-one supercar will officially arrive in the United States as a 2011 model. The year 2011 also happens to be the 40th Anniversary of the Barrett-Jackson automotive auction organization. As a tribute to that milestone Perana USA and Planet Color have partnered with David Yurman, America’s premiere jewelry and timepiece designer, to create a limited edition 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one supercar and a specially designed David Yurman watch, which will be presented to the lucky 40 buyers who claim one of these future collectibles.
Customers who purchase the limited edition 40th Anniversary Perana Z-One, of which only 40 will be made, will receive a commemorative David Yurman timepiece. The first 20 customers to purchase the Perana Z-one will have the opportunity to upgrade to a highly exclusive version of the timepiece featuring a black diamond bezel. All of the limited edition watches will feature the Perana logo engraved on the smoked sapphire crystal case back. The watches will be presented to each car buyer in a limited edition box set complete with a David Yurman for Barrett-Jackson keychain.
The special edition 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one will make its debut along with the exclusive David Yurman timepiece at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in January, 2011. While Barrett-Jackson VIPs will get an exclusive early look at the watch and the car, all 185,000 attendees who flock to Scottsdale for the 6 day event will have a chance to see this unique pairing. The 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one will be painted a striking Black Cherry which is a hue from the new Barrett-Jackson Planet Colors line of automotive paints from Sherman Williams.
All during 2011, the 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one will be displayed at Barrett-Jackson events around the country. The Perana Z-one made its world debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show before appearing for the first time in the United States at the Concorso Italiano event in August. Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas was the first televised showing of the Perana Z-one, where it garnered much praise for its elegant looks, outrageous performance and attainable pricing.
Perana Z-one Background
The Perana project is the result of legendary Milanese coachbuilder Zagato’s nine-decade-long expertise in constructing specially-bodied sports cars and GTs for some of Europe’s most established makes. The first car to be designed as a bespoke project, the Z-one is very much a back to basics, no frills sports car which demands driver input beyond that required by the established players in this segment of the market.
The use of emission-compliant GM E-Rod LS-series crate engines ensures high performance, drivability, reliability and serviceability. The General Motors Performance Parts crate engines also come with a full 24-month, 50,000-mile warranty from GMPP. Limited to just 99 units per annum, there is no car currently available that boasts this level of exclusivity, power, performance and styling…especially at such an unparalleled price.
