Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli
Parco Valentino 2016, which will take place in the Piedmontese capital from the 8th until the 12th of June, with the World Premiere of “Evantra MILLECAVALLI”, the most powerful street-legal Hypercar ever made in Italy.
Luca Mazzanti, founder and owner of the company that has his name since fifteen year, will present this extreme version of Evantra, which is the current and third model of the artisanal Supercar and Hypercar manufacturer from Tuscany. During the five days of the show, car enthusiasts can look at the first prototype of “Evantra MILLECAVALLI” that will be displayed at Mazzanti Automobili’s stand from 10.00 am to 12.00 pm.
Evantra Millecavalli is the extreme version of the Supercar Evantra presented in 2013 at Top Marques Monaco. Luca Mazzanti aimed at putting together all the important steps and improvements made until now, thanks to his skills and those of his team, developed during years of work. Evantra Millecavalli is equipped with a new 7.2-liter V8 bi-turbo engine, capable of 1000 hp and of a torque higher than 1200 Nm directly to the rear wheels; this layout, combined with a specifically developed six-speed sequential gearbox, allows the Hypercar to destroy the 0-60 mph in only 2.7 seconds, reaching the speed of 250 mph, also thanks to the kerb weight of just 1300 kg. These performances are controlled by the brand new carbon-ceramic brakes, specifically developed for Mazzanti Automobili, exploiting Motorsport technology, that permit to stop from 300 kph to 0 in only 7 seconds.
“Our new Hypercar, Evantra Millecavalli, is an arrival point for us. Not an absolute arrival, but the result of the meticulous work and the refining process that have been started since the delivery of the Evantra project. I strongly believe that a car manufacturer shouldn’t be completely satisfied by the results just achieved, always aiming at perfecting them all the time. Our Atelier had to work really hard to develop such an important project, after only two years since the debut of the Supercar Evantra. Nevertheless, the passion, the enthusiasm and the excellent competences of my team and mine, permitted us to complete this goal partly paid-off by the first three “Millecavalli-clients” which commissioned their Hypercars already during the pure planning phase. “Evantra MILLECAVALLI” wants to be a Hypercar for few passionate owners, built in a limited number of 25 exemplars that will be made contextually with the five annual units of Evantra. Both versions share the same DNA of pure craftsmanship and total focus on each client’s wishes that take shape in every Mazzanti exemplar, creating unique and exclusive models. The excellent performance of the MILLECAVALLI version marks an Italian record that makes us extremely proud. My tailor-made automobiles reflects my idea of Supercars entirely; in fact, I have been dreaming of my own car, different from all others, since I was a child. Every exemplar is thought to fully reflect the personality of the owner, still keeping the unmistakable Mazzanti style. My way of interpreting the automobile, has always been by considering it a protagonist, leaving plenty of room for the direct sensations of the driver that has to live an intense and thrilling experience in first person.
We accepted the invitation and the challenge of our friend Andrea Levy to present the Hypercar as World Premiere at Salone Auto Torino, because of the great importance that this city has been having in the automotive sector all over the world. I mentioned the world “challenge” because in order to be present today, we had to anticipate the presentation of the Evantra Millecavalli of about two months in respect to our original plan. Thus, the car displayed is a prototype, an exemplar under development, that obviously cannot express totally its potential. With our friend “Tenk”, Giampaolo Tenchini, race and test driver, we already planned a full and severe test calendar, that we will communicate step by step to our followers, in order to focus on the racetrack development besides the thousands of kilometers driven on normal roads, as Mazzanti Automobili, first of all, realizes street-legal Supercars and Hypercars.
Mazzanti Automobili’s autos are able to amaze without being banal, turning upside-down the common trends. This philosophy of distinguishing from what is commonly seen, is in line with the one expressed by this Salone Auto Torino that reinvented the way of interpreting an Auto Show. The genius and creativity typically Italian showed, once again, that changing perspective is a winning strategy and the number of visitors that came to the first edition of this event, confirmed it. This line of thoughts, with which I have also shaped my company, is a trump card. For this reason, we decided that two Italian excellences must have met, fixing the World Premiere of the new Hypercar Evantra Millecavalli at Turin Auto Show, to reinforce the strength of these two fully Italian realities.”
