When Faralli & Mazzanti announced the first details on the Evantra back in 2012, it announced the supercar would make its world debut at the 2013 Top Marques Monaco. F&M held its promise and delivered the Evantra with great improvements, including a V-8 engine in place of the original 3.5 liter flat-six engine.
If you were wondering what "Evantra" stands for, Mazzanti explains that its name comes from the ancient Etruscan language and represents an object unique, eternal and exclusive. It also was the name of the Goddess of immortality for the Etruscan people.
When compared to the six-cylinder version, the V-8 version received a new rear wing and a series of inserts made in carbon fiber or brushed aluminum. For the interior, the company added a new roll cage made in chrome.
As initially promised, the Evantra V8 will be sold in very limited qualities.

Teasers for Faralli & Mazzanti ’s Mugello prototype have barely left the spotlight and the Italian company has already unveiled the production version of their other supercar: the Evantra. The new Evantra will be built in limited edition - only 5 examples per year - with the first deliveries being made in mid-2012. Each unit produced will be supervised personally by its creator, Mr. Luca Mazzanti.
The Evantra was designed by Luca Mazzanti together with Zsolt Tarnok (F&M chief designer) and combines modern cues with classic elements in a perfectly balanced supercar. It also combines smooth surfaces with aggressive elements in the shape of the lights with modern LED lights. There are also precise and neat outlines in the connections of the air inlets and outlets around the car.
The Evantra is powered by a 3.5 liter flat six engine that delivers a total of 403 HP in its naturally aspirated version and 603 HP when equipped with a twin turbocharger. With a total weight of 2645 lbs, the car will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
The Evantra’s body was produced in two different steps. The first one is called Pro-Body which includes composite materials and the second body is called One-Body and is an entirely hand crafted, all aluminum body, which can be personalized by the client.
