Italian automaker Faralli & Mazzanti has unveiled its latest offering to the storied halls of fine Italian exotics, the Evantra, which, if our ancient Etruscan history knowledge serves us well, is the goddess of immortality. While the name might be ancient, it’s only been bestowed upon the exotic automobile for less than a week, as the car was originally named the Mugello.
Auto nomenclature aside, the Evantra is based around a steel space frame chassis. Potential buyers have the option of either composite body panels, or hand crafted aluminum bodywork, which can be further customized by request. It’s quite possible that no two Evantras could be the same. Add to that a very polished design with tapered windows, a sinuous front fender and love-them-or-loathe-them suicide doors and the Evantra becomes a very unique ride indeed.
Performance-wise the Evantra is all you might expect from an Italian automaker; not satisfied with simply looking the part, the Evantra features a flat-six 3.5 liter engine which comes in either a naturally aspirated version or forced induction twin turbocharged variant, with the latter capable of 600 horspower and the former 400 thundering stallions.
The Evantra isn’t heavy either; it weighs in at 2,645 lbs and can sprint to 60 in three and-a-half seconds. If you’re serious about snagging one for your own garage then act quickly because Faralli & Mazzanti originally stated it only plans to produce five cars a year, but maybe they will go back on that like they did with the original name. And while no official pricing is available at this time, we would wager it will cost you well over six figures.
