The Faralli & Mazzanti Evantra is Italy’s newest supercar, and with just five to be built per year, it’s destined to be more exclusive that its Ferrari and Lamborghini compatriots.
Based on F&M’s Mugello design concept, the Evantra is production-ready and will begin rolling out of the factory in around six months’ time.
Named after the Etruscan goddess of immortality, F&M describes the Evantra as “unique and exclusive”, and “the perfect equilibrium of classic and modern sports cars”.
The Evantra’s 3.5-litre flat-six engine will come in two states of tune: a 300kW naturally aspirated version, and a high-performance twin-turbocharged 450kW version. The latter is capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds.
The Evantra sits on a lightweight steel chassis and has a low centre of gravity. F&M says its balance makes it at home on a mountain road or around a racetrack. The two-seater’s body can either be made of lightweight composite materials, or handcrafted from aluminium.
While not an overly extravagant design, the pumped front wheel arches, long swooping bonnet, pointed mouth, rear-hinged doors and flat rear-end make the Evantra elegant and distinctive.
There no word yet on pricing, but F&M has confirmed it has already been commissioned to produce its first customer car.
