Italian supercar marque Mazzanti, in the news just a few days ago with its first model, the Evantra, is now tantalizing us with a new car code-named EV-R. With just a few weeks away from the reveal of the EV-R, Mazzanti has dropped a new video, revealing some of its performance specs.

The Italian model is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.7 seconds and reaching a top speed of 402 km/h (250 mph), making it faster than the LaFerrari, which needs less than 3 seconds to go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) and has a top speed of 350 km/h (217 mph).
"When you think of a new project, the best way to make it concrete, is with setting objectives. The objectives must be then translated into numbers in order to become real; the speed of 250 mph have a different meaning for a street legal hypercar", said the company's founder, Luca Mazzanti.
Responsible for the Mazzanti EV-R's performance is a new 7.2-liter Vi bi-turbo engine, the output of which remains unknown at this time, but we're probably looking at an upgraded version of the same powertrain used on the Evantra, which has a displacement of 7.0 liters and produces 751 HP and 860 Nm (634 pound-feet) of torque. Stopping power comes from carbon ceramic brakes, made by Brembo, covered by OZ Racing wheels that are wrapped in Pirelli Trofeo R rubber.
