After a warm reception in Europe, Zagato has announced it will sell its Chevy Corvette-based Perana Z-One in the U.S., with the official news and the car’s North American premier taking place at Concorso Italiano. The car will be imported through Superformance out of California, with pricing sure to be significantly higher than the Vette on which its based.

A standard Corvette chassis is available, with its 436-hp 6.2-liter LS3 V8, as well as a Z06 chassis with the 505-hp 7.0-liter LS7. Both of these options are mated to a six-speed ZF limited-slip differential equipped transmission. Inside, the Perana gets reworked with Recaro seats and plenty of Alcantara.

Zagato says a limited production of 999 units will be made with a small number making it to America. The rest will be sold in Europe and the Middle-East.
