Mazzanti’s latest teaser for EV-R supercar previews aero tech

Mazzanti is now very close to unveiling a new, much more hardcore version of its Evantra supercar.

A glimpse of the car, which is set for a debut June 8 at the 2016 Turin Auto Show (officially the Parco Valentino), is provided in Mazzanti’s latest teaser that also details some of the advanced aerodynamic technology.

Namely, the car, code-named the EV-R, will be able to utilize heated air extracted from the engine bay by directing it past the rear wing. The result is said to be additional downforce.

Creating the heat is a twin-turbocharged 7.2-liter V-8 developed in-house by Mazzanti. The engine is said to make the EV-R the most powerful production car to ever come out of Italy. Previously, Mazzanti said the engine will deliver as much as 885 pound-feet of torque.

Other performance specs we know include a 0-60 mph time of 2.7 seconds, a 186-0 mph time of 7.0 seconds and a top speed in excess of 250 mph. Mazzanti also confirmed the EV-R will have a track that’s about 4.0 inches wider than on the Evantra, along with carbon-ceramic brakes from Brembo, lightweight wheels from OZ Racing, and sticky Trofeo R tires from Pirelli.

There’s just one more teaser to go before the reveal so stay tuned. Previous teasers for the EV-R can be accessed at this link.
