Mazzanti unveils Evantra 771 with updated looks, aerodynamics and engine

Article by Christian A., on December 2, 2016

When Italian supercar maker Mazzanti Automobili introduced the Mazzanti Evantra coupe in 2013, the company immediately gained international fame with the vehicle, which had a 7.0-liter V8 engine that could deliver 751 hp and that allowed it to reach a top speed of 224 mph. Middle of this year, Mazzanti Evantra surprised us once again by revealing the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli hypercar, which has a 7.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine – sending power to its rear wheels via the six-speed sequential gearbox – could develop 1,000 hp of max output along with 885 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

Now, Mazzanti is revealing that a new version of the Mazzanti Evantra coupe is coming to town, and it is better than the 2013 original model. Let us welcome the Mazzanti Evantra 771, which will be available starting spring 2017. According to Mazzanti, the atelier applied all the knowledge and all the expertise gained from creating and developing the Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli hypercar to work on a very important update for the 2013 Evantra.

Interestingly, the basic design of the Mazzanti Evantra 771 remains essentially the same as the original Evantra coupe. However, there are noticeable differences and improvements on the exterior, thereby effectively refreshing the looks of the Mazzanti Evantra. These improvements include several aerodynamic tweaks. For instance, the Evantra 771 features a new front splitter, a refreshed air intake on the roof, as well as new designs for its mirrors and its rear wing.

Inside, the design of the Evantra 771 also received noticeable updates. In fact, compared to that of the Evantra Millecavalli, the interior of the Evantra 771 looks similar, laden with a number of new digital elements. More importantly, the cabin of the Evantra 771 now features simpler styling, which would allow its owners to personalize the interior according to their taste and preferences.

If you are wondering where the updated Evantra got its “771” name, this number is actually derived from the max amount of output that its 7.0L V8 naturally aspirated engine could deliver – 771 hp. Yes, without any turbocharger or assistance from an electric motor, the new Evantra 771 could deliver this much output – a 20 hp increase from what the 7.0L V8 in the original Evantra could provide.

Torque levels of the standard Evantra stand at around 634 pound-feet (860 Nm) at 5,000 rpm, and there is no confirmation yet on whether this figure went up as well. How the Evantra 771 got its name is not surprising, as the Evantra Millecavalli was named the same way. In fact, the term “millecavalli” is actually an Italian word that means “1,000 horses,” and the Evantra Millecavalli actually provides 1,000 hp from its 7.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.

Good news is that owners of the original Evantra could have their rides updated to the specs of the Evantra 771. This way, they won’t have to purchase the new Evantra 771 just to work like one.

Press Release

Mazzanti Evantra 771

After the great success for the world premiere of the Hypercar “Evantra Millecavalli”, the Atelier of Luca Mazzanti is working on a new pack for the Evantra, called “771” which will be available from spring 2017.

Evantra Millecavalli is a totally brand new project and Mazzanti Automobili’s team was challenged to work and develop every aspect; starting from the mechanics, focusing on the aerodynamics and designing a new interior with a dedicated digital dashboard and infotainment system.

Thanks to all the gained experience, an important update for the Supercar Evantra was developed. The pack “771” remarks the muscular lines of the Supercar. The new aerodynamic developments are present all over the body: the new splitter in the front, the renewed air intake on the roof, the design of the mirrors and the rear wing which improves the aerodynamic efficiency, also refreshing the style.

The interiors reflect the personality and the exigencies of each client; the design is updated too, making this version “771” looking more similar to the Hypercar Evantra Millecavalli. The choice of adopting new digital elements as well as more simple styles, underlines the unique characteristic of all the Mazzanti cars to be extremely customizable, appearing as blank portraits on which the client is guided in drawing his or her own wishes.

The pack “771” interests also the mechanics: the 7.0 L V8 naturally aspirated engine gets and increase up to 771hp (from which the pack gets the name) with the aim of making the driving experience of this Supercar even more unique.

“The new pack 771 brings Evantra one step ahead” Luca Mazzanti Explains “we increased our resources to bring this project to life and the inspiration came directly from the project of the Hypercar Evantra Millecavalli which is now facing the advance stage of development. The pack 771 interests all the aspects of the Supercar, from the increase of 20 hp to the actual power of 751 hp, to an important development of the aerodynamics and the aesthetics of the interiors. This is another step forward for the most exigent clients who desire an Evantra far from its classic design and closer to a race project. Moreover, this solution allows also the current owners to update their own Supercars. The pack 771 will be available for the Supercar realized from 2017 on, or customizable for the previous versions. This is just the beginning; in the next months there will be several news on which we will keep you informed regularly..”
