Mazzanti Millecavalli still looks menacing in first live pictures image

The boutique Italian company has recently unveiled in front of the public its latest installment – a seriously modified version of the Evantra supercar – dubbed Millecavalli because of its 1,000 hp power.

After wrapping up that extensive and exhausting teaser campaign, Mazzanti’s Evantra turned into the Millecavalli at the end of May for its online introduction. Now the “most powerful street-legal hypercar ever built in Italy,” as labeled by the exotic producer, has also been presented in front of a live audience. The Evantra Millecavalli has been presented in the metal during the Parco Valentino in Turin, which has been labeled as “the perfect place for celebrating this Italian masterpiece.” Some of the model’s technical details have also surfaced in the mean time, such as the purported maximum speed owners of this beast should expect.

It appears the secret is out now, with an announced top speed of 250 miles per hour (402 kilometers per hour). The other specifications remain unchanged – massive 7.2-liter V8 engine with two turbochargers, good for 1,000 horsepower (736 kilowatts) and a peak torque in excess of 886 pound-feet (1,200 Nm). Stopping power is larger than life as well, with carbon-ceramic brakes. And we also know the transmission duties are handled by a six-speed sequential gearbox. If you wonder how long you need before reaching 60 mph – 96 km/h – then the answer is just 2.7 seconds. No more than 25 units will be manufactured, with probably a huge premium over the standard Evantra’s $941,550.
