Move over LaFerrari, there’s a new horsepower king in Italy.
The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli has been introduced boasting 1,000 horsepower and laying claim as the most powerful street-legal car ever built in Italy. The boutique Italian automaker has been teasing the debut of its latest exotic over a series of videos, culminating with the one you see above that unveils the car. The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli is powered by a 7.2-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and has 885 pound-feet of torque to go along with its four-digit horsepower claim.
The powerplant is actually based on the existing 7.0-liter unit from the regular Evantra, but the Millecavalli is meant to be an entirely different machine. The company says its latest offering can go zero to 62 mph in 2.7 seconds and onwards to a top speed of 250 mph. That makes it about 0.3 seconds faster than the LaFerrari in terms of acceleration, while besting the LaFerrari’s 217-mph top speed.
Standard on the model will be Brembo brakes, while optional carbon-ceramic units are available. The powertrain is combined with a lightweight, aluminum exterior that helps the Evantra Millecavalli tip the scales at just 2,866 pounds.
The Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli will be limited to just 25 units, and don’t even bother asking about how much it costs.
