Mazzanti shows upgraded Evantra supercar
Since we last looked at the Mazzanti Evantra, the Italian supercar entered production. That isn't stopping Mazzanti from revealing newly specced Evantra models to tantalize the eyes and minds of the rich and famous, however. Last month, the boutique supercar maker once again added some flair to Top Marques Monaco, revealing a marble-white Evantra with an upgraded 751-hp powertrain.
The Evantra is a low production, handbuilt-to-order supercar, and Mazzanti likes to advertise it to potential buyers by showing slightly updated versions. Since last year's Top Marques Monaco, the car has been splashed with new "White Dolomite" paintwork. The paint's reflective flakes come to life in the sunlight, creating a look reminiscent of Tuscany's Carrara marble. The white, marbled paint is offset by the carbon fiber aero kit.
The highlight of the 2015 prototype is the 50-hp boost that brings the 7.0-liter V8 up to 751 hp. The car rides on a new set of Pirelli PZero tires and features Brembo brakes.
While none of the upgrades are earthshaking, they do increase the estimated performance of the suicide-doored super coupe. Mazzanti now says that the Evantra will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) from standstill in a flat 3 seconds, two-tenths faster than 2014's estimate. The plenty-fast top speed of 217 mph (350 km/h) bounces up to 224 mph (360 km/h).
During the Top Marques festivities, Mazzanti also showcased the blue 00-chassis Evantra inside the Casino de Monte-Carlo. It says that the Evantra was the very first car to ever be put on display inside the casino, and it certainly looks good sitting amidst the casino's powerful columns.
Mazzanti tells us that it began production eight months ago. Prices vary according to customer specifications, and the white 2015 car slots in at a cool €751,000 (US$852,000).
