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.

Loretta Lynn's Eagle tour bus is for sale, but the 40-foot vehicle has an even deeper history of transporting award-winning musicians and bands. Grammy Award-winner Vassar Clements, Country Music Hall of Fame singer Faron Young, Loretta Lynn's guitarist Perley Curtis, and the Badfinger and Sugarland bands all owned or toured in the 1977 Eagle tour bus currently up for auction on eBay. The bus still has "Coal Miner's Daughter" on the front, but it can be removed.

The bus has one private bedroom and six bunks that can accommodate eight or more people. There's a bathroom but no shower. There is, however, an empty closet adjacent to the bathroom that was originally intended for a shower, so conversion should be easy.
