Late last year, Italian automaker Mazzanti previewed a two seater concept sports car which was known as the Evantra. At that time, the car was said to feature either a naturally aspirated 3.5-litre flat six engine which produces around 400bhp or the same unit but turbocharged which has around 600bhp.

The car was targeted to be released in mid 2012. Recently, images of the production ready car were released. Its body looks pretty much like the concept but now it features a different engine.

The flat six engine was replaced with a naturally aspirated 7.0-litre V8 engine which delivers 700bhp with a torque of 848Nm. The engine has a compression ration of 11:1, a dry sump lubrication system and valves as well as connecting rods made out of titanium.

The V8 engine, which is the similar unit from the Chevrolet Corvette, is mated to a six speed sequential gearbox which enables the Evantra to complete the century sprint in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 350km/h.

20 inch OZ alloy wheels, which are wrapped in Continental tyres, are fitted on all four corners of the car. Braking power is courtesy of a Brembo braking system. The front is fitted with 380mm disc brakes with a six piston caliper and the rear is fitted with a 360mm disc with a four piston caliper. Carbon ceramic brakes come as an option.

The in-house designed body is made out of lightweight steel but customers can opt for a body built from either carbon fibre or aluminium. The carbon fibre-bodied car weighs around 1,300 kilograms.

Mazzanti will debut the Evantra at the Top Marques auto show in Monaco which will be held in April 2013. Pricing information will only be known after the debut.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.
