Puritalia Automobili will announce two new official dealerships for the United Kingdom and Australia plus the company will showcase its latest hyper-fast 965 hp super-hybrid Berlinetta on the lawns of Blenheim Palace at this year’s Salon Privé.

The Naples based company are ‘passionate petrolheads’ striving to redesign the future of the supercars; embracing automotive history and new technology.

The end product is an exclusive and ostentatious sports car designed from a unique fusion of distinctive Italian design and quality which is uncompromised.

Launched in Geneva at the 89th International Motor Show, the 208mph plug-in hybrid is a lightweight stallion that will get the outlandish pilot from 0 to 60 in 2.7 seconds, but will cost the affluent purist around $625,000 although that figure would most likely increase quickly with customisations.

Whilst at this year’s Salon Privé, the company will announce two new official dealerships for the UK and Australia which Puritalia Automobili has appointed for the exclusive distribution of a dedicated right-hand version of their Fuoriserie (custom), the Berlinetta, in their related regions.

Together with their new UK Dealer in London, Puritalia Automobili has arranged a very exclusive and private event for selected customers after Salon Privé to give them the opportunity to see and test drive the Berlinetta on the winding and not so level English roads.

CEO & Founder, Paolo Parente:
“We are thrilled to present our Berlinetta for the first time in the UK at this year’s Salon Privé. The ambience and atmosphere are what makes Salon Privé such a unique boutique event and I believe it is just perfect to present our Fuoriserie to the most demanding car enthusiasts and collectors in the UK. The Berlinetta is not for everyone, but only for true connoisseurs that appreciate artisanal cars in every detail. The huge interest we have received from the UK proves how much the British motor culture still appreciates traditional skills and craftsmanship where Italians cars, just like the British ones, are second to none.”

David Bagley, Co-Founder & Sales Director Salon Privé: “The concept of classic styling with modern technology is not new in itself, but the Puritalia Berlinetta really is something different. Hand-crafted and beautifully designed, it engages the owner at every stage of its build to create not only a truly unique experience but also a stunning, high performance GT car at the end of it and with only 150 scheduled to be built, it will be a very rare sight indeed.
