Behold, this is the most powerful supercar to appear out of Italy — according to Mazzanti. We know, we know, how can a newbie like Mazzanti make the most powerful vehicle when it’s up against giants like Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani or Maserati? Simple: squeeze 1,000 horsepower out of an already huge V8 engine.
Fresh juice anyone? Specifically, the Millecavalli (a thousand horses; for those who missed Italian 101) pumps out a rounded off 1,000 horsepower, and 885 lb-ft of torque from a 7.2 litre twinturbo V8 engine. It also looks the part.
Despite being a blend between the rounded Ferrari shapes and the large, sharp-angled cutouts of a Lamborghini, it doesn’t resemble anything that is coming out of Italy right now — and that’s a good thing, funnily enough. There is no scoop or. With no crease misplaced in this design, the race-inspired body ensures plenty of gawkers and fans on the roads, while carbon ceramic brakes help ground you back down to earth. The Millecavalli will be built in just 25 units, with three already spoken for. So if you’re interested in a limited edition Italian hypercar from a less-established manufacturer at an undisclosed price — now’s the time.
