Originally, the Mazzanti Evantra, an Italian supercar that seemingly popped up out of nowhere, was supposed to be released this year with a 600hp flat-six. That didn't happen. Now, nearly a year after those initial plans were released, official production images of the Evantra have been released with a major upgrade under the hood. The car now has a Corvette-sourced 7.0-liter V8 that makes 700 and 625 lb-ft. of torque. Coupled with a six-speed trans, this puppy will get you to 62 in 3.2 seconds and tops out at 217 mph. Expect the Top Marques in Monaco to be the launching point next year.
