At this week's 2016 Turin Auto Show, the most powerful car to ever come out of Italy made its official debut. That car is the 1,000-horsepower Mazzanti Evantra Millecavalli, a followup to the Italian brand's 2013 Evantra supercar. Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged 7.2-liter V-8, built in-house and capable of a 0 - 60 mph sprint time of just 2.7 seconds and a top speed in excess of 250 mph. In addition to its brute force, the Evantra Millecavalli is updated with a wider track, Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, OZ Racing lightweight wheels and Pirelli Trofeo R tires. Its monocoque chassis, constructed from steel and molybdenum chrome, also has carbon fiber elements to reduce the curb weight down to 2,866 lbs. Finally, there's innovative aero technology in which heated air extracted from the engine bay is directed past the rear wing, ultimately boosting downforce reminiscent of blown diffusers used in Formula One. Just 25 examples of the Millecavalli will be built, three of which having already been spoken for.
