Puritalia Automobili will showcase its latest creation, the 965 hp super-hybrid Berlinetta on the lawns of Blenheim Palace at this year’s Salon Privé.

Following the great success of the launch during the 89th Geneva International Motor Show in March 2019, Puritalia Automobili are now taking the Berlinetta to countries where they have registered most interest and appreciation and where they will establish a strategic presence to support the development of the company brand.

During Salon Privé, the company will announce two new official dealerships for United Kingdom and Australia which Puritalia Automobili has appointed for the exclusive distribution of a dedicated right-hand version of our Fuoriserie, the Berlinetta, in their related regions.

Together with their new UK Dealer in London, Puritalia Automobili have 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 beautiful English country roads.

CEO & Founder, Paolo Parente commented: “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 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, commented, “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.
