The latest Italian supercar comes in with a 520-hp V10 and a €1.5m price tag
And a funny name
This is the Pambuffetti PJ-01, named after the company's founder Juri Pambuffetti, and it is an Italian-made and Italian-designed supercar with - drum roll please - a V10. Yup yup, no electric powertrain and no supercharged/turbocharged V6. Just a good ol' layout with 10 cylinders arranged in a proper V. So far so good.
Unveiled a little over a week ago at the 2021 MI.MO. Milan Motor Show, the PJ-01 is built on a stainless steel and carbon fibre chassis and it utilizes a Lamborghini-sourced 5.2-litre V10, tuned to 820 hp and paired with a 6-speed sequential gearbox with flappy pedals. The top speed is 200 mph and because it only weighs 1,110 kg (2,425 lbs), it only takes 3 seconds to get to 60 mph.
The cabin is 100% track and driver-focused, as you can see from the yoke-style steering wheel and the sporty (and digital) instrument cluster. They're clearly trying to do everything they can to hammer the point home: this is a track monster, not just a Sunday car. Only 25 units will be built, with a price tag of €1,495,000 price tag ($1.7m / £1.28m).
