Based a stone s throw from the leaning tower of Pisa, Mazzanti has just introduced an evolution of the Evantra coupe that s billed as the most powerful street-legal car ever built in Italy.

It s called Millecavalli, a portmanteau that means a thousand horses in Italian, and as its name clearly implies it boasts a thousand horsepower thanks to a twin-turbocharged 7.2-liter V8 engine.

The Millecavalli emblem is accompanied by a more aggressive look.

It features a deeper front bumper, a trio of vents cut into the hood, flared fenders, and a sizable wing out back.

Mazzanti will publish a full set of details about the Evantra Millecavalli next month during the Turin Auto Show.

The car on display won t be a mere concept, and the carmaker has already announced plans to build no less than 25 examples of the Millecavalli in the not-too-distant future.
