The Mazzanti Evantra Pura blends exotic European styling with American muscle.

There's a good chance you've never heard of Mazzanti Automobili. Founded in Italy back in 2002, Mazzanti launched the Evantra (named after the Etruscan goddess of immortality) supercar in 2011 and has been evolving it ever since. 2016 saw the launch of the more track-focused Evanta 771 and Evantra Millecavali, which were replaced with the even more extreme Evantra 781 and Millecavali R. Joining the Mazzanti model lineup is the new entry-level Evantra Pura, which was presented at the 2021 Florence Biennale festival in Florence, Italy.

Blending exotic European styling with American muscle, the Evantra Pura ditches the original model's naturally-aspirated 7.0-liter V8 in favor of a 6.2-liter V8 from a C8 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray tuned to produce 761 horsepower and 671 lb-ft of torque.

Paired with a seven-speed automatic, power is sent to the rear wheels, resulting in a 0-60 mph time of 2.9 seconds and a top speed of over 224 mph. Tipping the scales at just 2,844 pounds, the Pura is 198 pounds lighter than the original, making it even more responsive.

Like other Evantras, the new Pura is built on a chassis made from a high-tensile, boxed-section steel frame and molybdenum chrome. Front and rear MacPherson strut suspension is offered as standard, or a fully adjustable suspension system is optionally available. Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes provide the stopping power, measuring 14.9 inches with six-piston calipers at the front and 14 inches with four-piston calipers at the rear.

The Pura rides on OZ Racing wheels wrapped in Michelin tires measuring 255/35R19 at the front and 315/30R20 at the back. Inside, the interior is upgraded with a larger portrait touchscreen for the infotainment system and a racing-style driver display on the steering wheel.

It’s no exaggeration to say that each car Miazzanti builds is individually tailored to each owner: the driving position is configured based on the driver’s measurements and the gear shift paddles can be designed based on the shape of the driver’s hands. Specific pricing details have not been revealed, but the Pura will start at around $800,000. Production will be extremely limited as Mazzanti only builds five cars a year.
