Mazzanti Automobili has just announced that they will be officially presenting the Evantra concept’s production variant at the 2013 Top Marques Monaco auto show. Mazzanti Automobili has recently officially made the transition from being F & M (Faralli & Mazzanti) though the brand’s former logo in blue/gold is still displayed in abbreviation form on the model. Mazzanti has named their new offering after the goddess of immortality Evantra and the name itself has been borrowed from the ancient Etruscan language. The design of the Mazzanti Evantra has been developed by designers Zsolt Tarnok and Luca Mazzanti who have overseen the project’s development as well.
Built upon a steel chassis designed to be especially lightweight, the vehicle can be wrapped up in an aluminum body handcrafted by Italian artisans or a composite material body paneling. The Mazzanti Evantra sports car comes fitted with an inline-6 boxer engine that displaces 3.5 liters of fuel and outputs a maximum 403 horsepower. A variant of the Mazzanti Evantra comes with twin turbochargers that allow it to boost its power output to 603 hp which allows it to accelerate to 100km/h from a standing start in just 3.7 seconds.
The vehicle measures 1,955 mm in width 1,225 mm in height and 4,325 mm in length and boasts of a 2,550 mm wheelbase. The total curb weight of the vehicle without cargo and passengers comes out to around 1,200kg. Mazzanti has announced that they will build just five copies of the limited edition production version of the Evantra each year. The Italian automaker has not yet revealed the pricing and availability of the vehicles for now.
