In 2013, we saw the launch of the first Mazzanti Evantra as an Italian supercar that spawns an American powertrain and three years later, the line-up was expanded with the addition of the Evantra 771 and Evantra Millecavali R.
The Italian marque’s range is gaining a new member that wears the Pura badge and it was unveiled at the 2021 Florence Biennale. Boasting similar looks to that of the other model it replaces, the Pura is lighter, more potent and only a limited number will be produced.
The new Mazzanti Evantra Pura has gone on a serious diet, shedding a significant 90 kg and currently tips the weight scales at 1,290 kg compared to the original Evantra model.
Like its predecessor, at its heart beats an American-sourced supercharged 6.2-litre V8 engine with 560 kW and a staggering 910 Nm. The engine is enough to propel the supercar to 100 km/h from a standstill in a McLaren 720S-threatening 2.9 seconds with the top speed capped at 360 km/h.
The Mazzanti Pura features a 7-speed sequential transmission with paddle shifters that sends power to the rear axle. The front axle boasts Michelin tyres shod with 255/35 R19 and 315/30 R20 at the back. The wheels house a set of carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes.
Buyers can tweak the Pura according to how they want it with optional extras such as carbon fibre paddles and a small screen on the steering wheel. If you ask nicely, you can even have the seats moulded for maximum comfort and ergonomics.
