F&M Hopes to Break into Supercar Game with 403hp Evantra

F&M Hopes to Break into Supercar Game with 403hp Evantra

Building any car is difficult, but building expensive, unique supercars is even harder. For every success story like Pagani or Konigsegg there are many companies who could either not appeal to buyers or make a car profitably. There is another company wading into the competition now. Called F&M, it will produce a car called the Evantra that will use a 3.5 liter, flat-six engine. 

F&M was founded in 2001 by Luca Mazzanti and Walter Faralli. They first began restoring European sports cars, especially Abarths, and eventually were building one-off cars for wealthy patrons. Now the pair will be building a car for series production at least in small numbers. 

The Evantra uses a 3.5 liter, flat-six engine making 403hp when naturally aspirated or 603hp if the twin-turbo version is ordered. F&M plan to produce just 5 Evantras each year and tailor them towards the desires of each individual buyer. F&M estimates the car will accelerate to 100km/h in 3.7 seconds. The first car has already been sold and will be delivered in mid 2012.

The Evantra was designed by Mazzanti and Zsolt Tarnok who is a young Hungarian designer that also worked on another F&M project, the Vulca.

The Evantra uses a steel chassis, but the buyer has two choices for the body. The standard cars come with the Pro Body that is made from composite materials and looks like the car pictured above. The other option is the One Body that allows buyers to work with a designer to create a completely one-off car. These bodies will be done in aluminum. With the Pro Body the car will weigh 1200kg.

Not to be a party spoiler but this looks like it was built out of molten tupperware, very amateur looking design also...

For the clientele targeted, I believe it looks too much 'deja vu', nothing ground breaking (the doors maybe) compared to Pagani or Koenigsegg (the correct spelling, once more).

What else could they bring to the table. I couldn't design something better. I like it.

What else??? Automotive evolution is not stopped (OK, it was in the US for a long time, but even there it is changing now), look at Sbarro (design can be questionned, but a lot of ideas there), Rinspe...
