The country that gave us Ferrari and Lamborghini has got a new supercar on the way.
If there's anything we just can't get enough of, it's Italian sportscars. But this one doesn't come from Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini or even Pagani. It comes from the likes of Mazzanti Automobili. The company formerly known as Faralli & Mazzanti has apparently dropped the first partner as its Evantra nears production, with new images and details now surfacing. The radically-styled mid-engined supercar packs a 7.0-liter V8 engine with over 700 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque for a claimed 3.2-second 0-62 time and a 217 mph top speed.
The shape has reportedly been honed in collaboration with F1 and Le Mans consultant Ysim, fine-tuning the design for optimal aerodynamic efficiency. Mazzanti has also teamed up with Brembo for the brakes (including optional carbon-ceramic discs) and OZ for the 20-iunch wheels. All in all it looks like a rather compelling package, but we're looking forward to seeing the Mazzanti Evantra make the jump from computer renderings to the real deal.
