Mazzanti Automobili has released new images of the Mazzanti Evantra V8, the new Italian supercar that boasts 701 horsepower and 848 Nm. Only five examples will be produced in a year. The style of the Evantra was designed by Luca Mazzanti and the company’s chief designer, Zsolt Tarnok, as a concept of perfect balance between classic and modern.
The body is 2-seater coupe made of two different types of equipment. Owners can opt for either the Pro-Body, which is made of carbon-fibre composite materials or the One-Body, which is an entirely handcrafted all-aluminium shell that can be personalised by the client.
The engine benefits from dry-sump lubrication as well as valves and connected rods made from titanium, and it should be able to accelerate the Evantra V8 from 0-60 mph in around 3.0 seconds and see it reach a top speed of 217 mph. Drive is sent to the rear wheels via a paddle-shifted, six-speed sequential gearbox.
The supercar is equipped with 20-inch OZ alloy wheels wrapped in 305/25 R20 Continental tyres at the back and 255/30 at the front. The powerful braking system, supplied by Italian company Brembo, consist of 380 mm discs with six-piston callipers at the front and 360 mm discs combined with 4-piston callipers at the rear.
Inside, Mazzanti promises full luxury, with leather and carbon fiber trim available. Mazzanti likes to stress that almost every aspect of the car can be personalized, especially its interior. One key feature is the roof-mounted starter button, which is the same design found in the original Antas V8.
