The 1,000-hp Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli made its debut at the 2016 Turin Auto Show as the most powerful car to ever come out of Italy. Although it is not as widely recognized as Ferrari or Lamborghini, Mazzanti is in the same league as these brands illustrious brands in terms of performance and design.
The Evantra Millecavalli is a further development of the basic Evantra model and its name Millecavalli is Italian for “a thousand horses,” to mark the car’s power output, which tops even the 950 hp of the Ferrari LaFerrari. The power comes from a twin-turbocharged 7.2-liter V-8 engine of Mazzanti’s own design. It is responsible for a peak torque of 885 pound-feet and acceleration from 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds and on to a top speed of over of 250 mph.
Power is not the only impressive feature of the limited edition Evantra Millecavalli as the model exhibits a sophisticated chassis on top of other things. A wider track, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, OZ Racing lightweight wheels, and sticky Pirelli Trofeo R tires are some of the core elements that transform the design into something truly spectacular.
The car is still in its pre-production stage, leaving a great deal of the model’s specifics yet to be revealed. However, one thing is for certain at this point and that is that the Evantra Millecavalli will surely grace some of the world’s best racetracks for fine-tuning.
Only 25 units of the exclusive vehicle will be produced for now and 3 have already been sold to unknown buyers. The first hybrid supercar boasts a starting price of £600,000 – which is more than a Ferrari. It is completely handmade and comes with a choice of an aluminium or carbonfibre body. The latter option allows for the shortest construction time of 8 months and is likely to be favoured by most customers. The styling is defined by bold, rear-hinged doors and large 20in alloy wheels.
