The 2.5-year rollout of the Mazzanti Evantra V8 continues, this time with promotional video footage and words from the founder, Luca Mazzanti. The deep-purple rendering shown off in December 2011 has come a long way, but remains almost identical as a production model.

If you've forgotten, behind the cockpit is an all-aluminum 7.0-liter V8 with 701 horsepower and 624 pound-feet of torque. That'll swing the Evantra with its steel and chromoly chassis and carbon fiber body from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds via a six-speed sequential paddle-shift transmission. You can also get an aluminum body and a six-speed manual if you like your new school, old school, and you can see how she runs in the video below.

      Yet another supercar. It's mind boggling that there are so many more choices for $500k+ supercars than $15k grocery getters.

        It's a result of the income disparity. The most expensive car in 1962 was the Ferrari 250 GTO. It's $18K price works out to $135K in today's dollars. That alone tells you that the rich have way more money now than they used to.

      Will it catch fire just like the Zenvo and GT3? :)

      I'm sorry, I know a lot of people like this car, but I think it's hideous. Plus, with meh performance numbers (relatively speaking, obviously. I'm comparing it to the other all of the other pagani wannabe super car startups), and really polarizing styling, I'm not sure they'll sell any.

      Ummmm so why would anyone get this over a Lambo or Ferrari which are 1,000x better built, better quality, better performance, better tech, better reliability, better resale...etc...etc...etc... This is like the italian version of the US Vector. Even more strange, this styling looks like something in the 80s/90s that is trying to be futuristic, it does not look like a modern progressive design at all. Especially for an italian supercar, this styling is very strange. Just an example of a rich guy on a vanity project to make a car. Leave it to the experts pal...

        Manual transmission. Lighter. Simpler. You might not like the design, but he does, and some others will too. If everyone "left it to the experts" we wouldn't have Pagani, Ariel - or even Lamborghini itself.

          Or, for that matter, the 427 Cobra, Noble, TVR, Lister, Panoz., Aston Martin... the list goes on. Vanity projects are not always so bad, in other words.

      So the car looks sexy, sounds nice... but those doors... Sure, they look cool, but how is someone supposed to close them? Either you have to completely twist your body around so the inside arm can pull it down and shut, or rotate your outside arm at a very awkward angle to close it, if you can even reach it (I have a 6'6" wingspan with flexible arms and I have doubts that I could comfortably close those doors)

        You push a button and they close

          Then additional electric motors are required to operate them, not only adding weight but also another potential point of failure
