H.R. Owen has been appointed the official UK retailer to Puritalia Automobili, makers of the hand-crafted ‘Super Hybrid’ Berlinetta. This 965hp high-tech Italian sports car is limited to only 150 units, each inspired by the golden age of Italian automobile design.
Puritalia Automobili is the third new brand to now fall under the H.R. Owen umbrella this year, joining all-electric performance car brands Rimac and Automobili Pininfarina. H.R. Owen will be supporting all three brands with their presence at the prestigious Salon Privé event, taking place at Blenheim Palace from 5-7 September.
H.R. Owen is the UK’s leading luxury motor dealer group, representing some of the world’s most sought-after brands; Bugatti, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Bentley, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini and BAC. The addition of Puritalia Automobili consolidates H.R. Owen’s position at the very highest level in the automotive sector.
H.R. Owen’s reputation for exemplary customer service makes it the ideal fit for the Puritalia Berlinetta, which necessitates a different sales and ownership experience to most traditional sports cars. Given each Berlinetta requires 800 hours for carbon-fibre painting and finishing alone, the creation of each example will be a highly personal and involved process requiring passion, dedication and patience. Despite the artisan craftsmanship and highly advanced technology in each Berlinetta, prices start from just 465,000 Euros plus VAT, depending on the country of delivery.
Puritalia Automobili was founded by Paolo Parente, who partnered with car designer Fabio Ferrante, to build fuoriserie cars in the spirit of the Golden Years of Italian automobile design using the most advanced technologies. The Berlinetta, a project that was four years in the making, is the Puritalia experience at its best. A handcrafted, custom-made Italian sports car that offers a super-hybrid engine – managed by Artificial Intelligence based proprietary software – in a Berlinetta style carbon fibre body that offers the ideal 50/50 weight distribution for the perfect driving experience.
