FM Auto presents the Mazzanti Evantra supercar

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 13, 2013

Photos of the Mazzanti Evantra, the latest supercar to be released, have come out. Hungarian Zsolt Tarnok designed the Evantra. It will be produced in Italy. From these images, it appears that the Evantra is already ready to enter production. It will be available with two engines. The first is a turbocharged six-cylinder unit with an output of about 600bhp while the second one is a 7.0-litre V8 engine that can deliver 700bhp and 625lb ft of torque. The power can be sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed Sila Holding sequential gearbox. The dynamic package also includes the OZ wheels and Brembo brakes. The Evantra has aluminium wheels so it is expected to be light. It’s believed to have a kerb weight of 1300kg. It could be made even lighter with carbon brakes and body panels.

It’s claimed that the car can accelerate from zero to 62mph in 3.5sec and can reach a top speed of 217mph. The most stand-out feature of the Evantra is the rear-hinged doors, a system that’s unique to Mazzanti. Its interior is as distinct as style. It is equipped with a gearshift indicator positioned in the steering wheel, a roof-mounted engine start button and big amounts of purple leather. Mazzanti said that just five will be built every year. Each car will be personalized individually.

 "I am really proud to present the Evantra V8 .With her an enormous work is finished, that mainly focused on conciliating elements difficult to harmonize to each other: a personal concept that is absolutely out of todays market trends, a really precise and tipically italian stylistical identity and a powertrain with " absolute" performance are perfectly united in forms and function. Evantra V8 was not born to please everyone, instead to be herself and to generate emotions with her character and exclusivity" said Luca Mazzanti.

Press Release

Mazzanti Evantra

The carbon fiber composite body of the Evantra V8 is characterized by the new rear wing and the series of inserts realized in carbon fiber, or brushed aluminium.

Inside a new chrome-molibden rollcage is positioned under the roof while another one connects the new engine to the rear suspension hard-points, this way enchancing the structural stiffness of the chassis and in the same time helps protecting the occupants.

The Evantra's "mechanical heart" is an aluminium V8, naturally aspirated 7.0 L. which is capable of developing 701 hp @ 6600 rpm and 848 Nm @ 4500 rpm. The engine has a compression ratio of 11.0, a dry sump lubrification system, and valves, connecting rods in titanium.

The performance of the Evantra V8 equipped with a 6-speed sequential gearbox arrives up to the maximum velocity of over 350 Km/h with an acceleration of 0-100 in 3.2 seconds.

The aerodynamic development process was realized in partnership with YSIM, a company with notable experience in F1 and Le mans.

SILA Holding Industriale, leader company of gearshift systems, has developed a special version of its robotized gearshift system "silatronic" for Mazzanti.

The power of the Evantra V8 is transferred onto the tarmac thanks to special high performance tyres from CONTINENTAL 255/30 R20 front and 305/25 R20 rear, mounted on special 20" OZ alloy wheels. The braking system comes from BREMBO, formed by 380mm discs with 6 piston calipers in the front and 360mm discs with 4 piston caliper is the back (carbon-ceramic system is optional).

The tailor-made interior of the client is covered with all-natural leather prepared with special aniline leather treatment. The incredible soft touch of the leather is achieved thanks to a collaboration with a leader of the fashion/luxury sector. Every aspect of personalization is possible with the infinite options of special material, including exotic leather and precious materials.

The center console is equipped with a dash and data acquisition system from AIM and a Headunit (NAVI/CD/MP3) from BOSCH as first equipment. The engine starter button is placed onto the roof panel in "Mazzanti" style as in the "sister car" ANTAS. On the lower part of the console the modality selector is placed with different maps for the engine/gearbox, "Strada - Street" and "Corsa - Race". On the NARDI steering wheel a small display shows the actual gear, while behind the paddles are placed.
