Diabolic P5X. The new coupè for the Pershing brand.

[dropcap]I[/dropcap]t is the new “beautiful and damned” for the Pershing brand. With the historic design by Fulvio De Simoni, the new 16,5m Coupè shows strong distinctive features, with the “X” in its name conveying its diabolic nature, hidden in its power. It is [highlight color=”yellow”]not designed to cruise, but “to fly,[/highlight] exactly as a jet fighter does, a Dassault for example” – states the Ferretti Group CEO, Mr Alberto Galassi, during the press conference at the Boot Düsseldorf last January (Editor’s note: in the business aviation Falcon Dassault, one of the most important name in the sector, is present with the models 5X, 7X up to the recent 8X, one of the most performing aircraft in the world).
