A white Mazzanti Evantra was present at Cars and Coffee Torino 2015, held on 19 September. In case you’ve forgotten, the Mazzanti Evantra is produced by Italian-based Automobili Mazzanti. The two-door coupe premiered at the Top Marques Monaco 2013 and only five units of the vehicle will be built annually. The name comes from the ancient Etruscan language, wherein Evantra refers to the “goddess of immortality”.
The Evantra V8 is powered by a 7.0-litre V8 engine, which according to Automobili Mazzanti, generates 751 hp. The company further states that the Evantra can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3 seconds with a top speed of 360 km/h, when equipped with the six-speed sequential gearbox (a six-speed manual is also available). The stopping power comes via Brembo brake system and the total weight of the Evantra is just 1300 kg.
The Evantra is the brainchild of car design specialist Luca Mazzanti, who accompanied his creation at the Cars of Coffee meet. His company made a transition from Faralli & Mazzanti (F&M) to Mazzanti Automobili a few years back, but one may notice that the abbreviation “F&M” is still displayed in the gold/blue logo. The Evantra has got a lot of attention among the car enthusiasts over the past couple of years, so much so it even featured in Sony’s Driveclub video game.
