Back in 2009, Zagato and Perana Performance Group attracted some attention with their new Z-one. However, the Perana Z-One has now resurfaced under a 111-year old brand known as AC, which will be renaming and selling it as the the AC 378 GT Zagato.

The 6.2-litre V8 outputs 440hp and 537Nm of torque. If that doesn’t excite you the 6-speed manual gearbox can transfer all that power to the rear wheels and hits 100km/h in 4 seconds.

If the performance still doesn’t excite you, how about the price tag of just $113,879(S$141,927) besides being one of only 999 people owning this South African beauty. For all that money you’ll get air-conditioning, a touch-screen infotainment system with sat-nav, bigger Brembo brakes and optional Recaro seats.

AC and Zagato first collaborated in 1957, where they built the AC Ace Bristol Zagato one-off. Along with that car, AC and Zagato will show up to Pebble Beach 2012 with the AC 378 GT Zagato to celebrate their partnership.

AC Cars said, throughout 2011 the car went under a bunch of handling and performance upgrades to maximize driving characteristics.
