Irvine, CA, United States, 2010/12/17 - Barrett-Jackson, David Yurman, Planet Color and Perana have united to offer a limited edition 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one package for collectors.
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, the two companies have partnered with high-end jewelry designer David Yurman to create a limited edition 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one supercar and a specially designed DY 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 model, of which only 40 will be made, will receive a commemorative David Yurman watch customized to compliment the car in color and design. The watches will feature the Perana logo engraved on the reverse and the first 20 watches will additionally be adorned with 20 diamonds each. The watches will be presented to each car buyer in a limited edition box set with a DY keychain.
The special edition 40th Anniversary Perana Z-one will make its debut along with the exclusive DY watch 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 Pearl and Red Hot Chili Pepper to match the Barrett-Jackson logo, using two hues from the new Barrett-Jackson Planet Colors line of automotive paints from Sherwin-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. Superformance Distribution will be the sole U.S. Distributor of the Perana Z-one, which is being limited to just 99 units per year in America.
