Meet Italy’s Most Powerful Car: Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 17, 2016

Look out, LaFerrari! The bane of your existence is coming sooner than expected. The hypercar that is set to challenge the Ferrari LaFerrari’s existence in the hypercar Holy Trinity is expected to go into production by the end of this year.

The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli is a vehicle that stands true to its name. The term “millecavalli” is actually an Italian word meaning “1,000 horses”, and so the Evantra Millecavalli is expected to pack a thousand horses under its hood.

First introduced during the 2016 Turin Auto Show, the Evantra Millecavalli is a majestic piece that has captivated the hearts of car enthusiasts. A reworked version of the previous Mazzanti Evantra, the Millecavalli is set to become a game changer in the field of high performance vehicles once it hits production.

Since its debut, the Millecavalli has been dubbed as the most powerful Italian-made road-legal hypercar because it packs so much power in its 7.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine. It sets loose its stored power down to its rear wheels via the six-speed sequential gearbox featured in the vehicle. As a result, it can produce up to 885 lb.-ft. of torque alongside 1,000 horsepower. With all this power and ferocity, the Millecavalli can sprint from zero to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and has an estimated top speed of 250 mph.

The Millecavalli will be geared up with the same monocoque chassis as that of the Evantra’s – the same steel and molybdenum chromed ones. However, it will be lighter than the latter, weighed at only 1,300 kg due to its carbon fiber build. Also, helping this hypercar go from 186 mph to a complete standstill (at only 7 seconds) are the upgraded Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. The Millecavalli will also suit up with OZ Racing wheels wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R tires.

The anticipation grows stronger as days pass by and more information is revealed of the Mazzanti Evantra Milecavalli in the next couple of months. No pricing information has been revealed so far but we’re guessing it to be greater than the Evantra’s. Moreover, the Millecavalli will be a rare gem in the automotive world as Mazzanti Automobili plans to make only 25 units of this road beast. Yes, you read that right – the Millecavalli will follow the footsteps of the Evantra, its also-limited edition predecessor.

Mazzanti Automobili, the brains for this ferocious road-legal hypercar, has been in the automobile industry since 2002. It was founded by Walter Faralli and (of course) Luca Mazzanti, a well-known car enthusiast. It first started out as a workshop specializing in the restoration and development of supercars but was soon split into two: the “Mazzanti Automobili” and the “Faralli Restauri”. Now, the former is well-known to specialize in producing handcrafted high performance cars.

Mazzanti Automobili has gained international recognition because of the Mazzanti Evantra coupe which was first produced in 2013 – the vehicle is powered by a 7.0-liter V8 engine producing 751 horsepower and a top speed of 224 mph.

Now, it is on the rise and is seriously out to outshine its hypercar rivals once the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli sees the light of day. Its founder, Luca Mazzanti, has shared his excitement with this new masterpiece. He says that the development of such vehicles such as the Millecavalli will help push the company to do better and to aim “to reach new targets”. We’re counting on that, Luca!
