Exotic Perana Z-one Zagato limited production sports car for sale on eBay

Here’s a chance to buy a rare, collectible sports car that isn’t priced in the millions of dollars. One of seven Perana Z-one Zagatos in the U.S., there are only 10 in the world, is currently listed on eBay.

First shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 2009 as a concept car, the Z-one was a collaboration between South African Perana Performance Group and Italy’s Zagato coachbuilders. Zagato built its gorgeous bodywork around a C6 Corvette. The car’s power is delivered by a 6.2-liter Camaro LS3 440 horsepower engine and a six-speed high-performance Auto ZF automatic transmission. Eibach springs and Bilstein shock absorbers keep the Z-one in contact with the road. The car tops out at 185 mph and has a zero-to-60 time of about 4.0 seconds.

The Z-one listed on eBay was one of ten street-legal pre-production versions. The original Perana plan was to build just 999 cars to sell at a supercar bargain price of $70,000. That plan didn’t work out. The Z-one lingered until it was brought back to life apparently unchanged by legendary AC Cars and re-badged as the AC 378 GT Zagato, priced at $141,800 in the U.K.

According to the listing, the Perana Z-one has 2,765 miles and a clear used-car title. It has air conditioning and power door locks and windows, but don’t look for other electronic niceties, as this car was built for performance, with a body weight of just 3,230 pounds, comparable to Corvettes built the same year. The exterior is two-tone gray and the interior and leather upholstery are appropriately all black.

On eBay, the Buy It Now price for the 2012 Perana Z-one Zagato is $126,000. The listing expires Thursday, January 9, 2017, at 8:18 p.m. PT. The car is listed by Hollywood, California-based Jem Motor Corp. If you’re the lucky winner, be ready to make a nonrefundable $1,000 deposit within two days of the end of the auction and payment in full within five days of auction close. Good luck.

Photos released with the brief announcement show styling features that tie the Optiq to the larger Lyriq, such as split taillights, but other details won't be released until closer to the Optiq's launch.

Why your EV’s voltage matters, and what it means for your car’s charging speed
Front three-quarters view of a 2023 Kia EV6 GT in a desert setting.

Electric cars are slowly, but surely becoming commonplace, and they introduce a whole new generation of specifications that are worth caring about. Range is an obvious one -- but there's another metric that has a major impact on the overall experience of owning an electric car: voltage.

You'll often see the voltage of an electric car's battery pack touted in advertising. Hyundai, for instance, is proud of the 800 -volt battery in cars like the EV6 -- that's double the voltage of the 400V battery in the Tesla Model Y.

Tap the button below to grab one quickly, while they're still in stock, or keep reading for why we like it.

Why you should buy the Milwaukee M18 Inflator
First and foremost, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator provides an easy way for you to inflate your tires in a pinch or awkward situation. It is particularly great for the tires of riding lawnmowers. They tend to be awkward to get to the gas station or other place where you traditionally inflate tires and would be a pain to hand inflate. Usage of the machine is simple. Insert an M18 Milwaukee battery, set the desired PSI for the deflated tire, connect to the tire and wait until it is done inflating. The Milwaukee M18 Inflator will stop pumping air automatically once the ideal PSI is achieved. When you're done, the Milwaukee M18 Inflator is small and easy to tuck away, being about the size of a lunchbox.
