It looks like Mazzanti Evantra prototype had been caught as it was being tested on the road. Italian boutique supercar maker Mazzanti handcrafts just five cars per year, so to spot a prototype is a seriously rare experience.
The sports car is wearing the typical monochrome camouflage, as you can see from these exclusive spy shots, so the automaker clearly has something to hide. The original Mazzanti Evantra is powered by an aluminum 7.0-liter V-8 engine capable of producing 701 horsepower and 625 foot-pounds of torque. Combine it with a six-speed gearbox, and you get a top speed of more than 217 mph and the ability to hit 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds.
Creator of Italy’s most powerful supercar Mazzanti Evantra set to unleash another very special model.
The Evantra started life as a retro grand tourer but it evolved into a hypercar in the shape of the “1,000 horses” and in a limited production of 25 units. As you can see in the spy shots, the prototype is wearing the same roof air intake and front splitter. However, it’s hard to see whether the 771’s new rear wing is also on the test mule.
Given that each Evantra is made to order, we expect buckets of horsepower, somewhere around the 800-900 horsepower range would be our best guess. The new model will be rolled out in the coming months.
