The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli unveiled with more power than a LaFerrari.
Millecavalli is Italian for "1,000 horses," which makes the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli – unveiled today at the 2016 Turin Auto Show – a fitting name for the 1,000-hp supercar. Teased just a couple of weeks ago, the boutique Italian sports car maker began its foray into the supercar world after initial offerings of retro grand tourers with the Evantra, and has now reached the heights of hypercar maker with this stunning limited edition.
With a higher power output than the 950-hp Ferrari LaFerrari, the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli stands as the most powerful road-legal car to have ever emerged from Italy. Only 25 units will be made. At the heart of the Italian stallion is a 7.2-liter twin-turbo V8 built in-house, delivering 885 lb-ft of torque as well as the "millecavalli," propelling it from 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds en route to a 250-mph top speed. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential gearbox. The Evantra's monocoque chassis – made from steel and molybdenum chrome – underpins the limited edition brute, but the car's curb weight has been reduced to 1,300 kg by utilizing carbon fiber in its construction.
The chassis has also been upgraded with Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes that help the car go from 186 mph to standstill in just seven seconds. OZ Racing wheels come wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R tires. Production will begin at the end of the year. In the meantime, the car will continue development and be fine-tuned on the world's top racetracks.
