F&M Evantra Supercar Unveiled

Italian coachbuilder F&M has revealed its latest car. The Evantra aims--successfully, we might add--to take classic design elements into the 21st century. It is a rare, unique car from the capital of sexy supercars.

F&M delved into the ancient Etruscan language to name its model. 'Evantra' alludes to a unique, exclusive object and is also the name of the Goddess of Immortality in the language of the ancient civilization that occupied what is now Tuscany.

F&M ensures that the Evantra remains true to its unique, exclusive nameplate by planning a mere five models per year. The company's atelier will also work closely with each customer to provide the utmost levels of customization.

The Evantra sits on a lightweight steel frame and comes in either a composite body or an aluminum body, depending upon customer preference. The former is the lighter option of the two, but the latter affords the buyer the opportunity to customize the exterior, as the aluminum body is handcrafted with customer input.

In terms of design, F&M describes the Evantra as the "perfect equilibrium of classic and modern sportscars." Ordinarily we hate such marketing speak, but in this case, it's hard to argue. Elements like the LED lights and big air inlets are definitely modern, while the hulking fenders are a nod to the classics. F&M's past releases like the Vulca S used a similar classic-inspired styling but without the modern elements. Overall, F&M manages to make a striking car that is reminiscent of much older cars while still completely modern and aggressive.

Another interesting aspect of the car is its up-swinging, rear-hinged doors.

The Evantra is powered by a sub-super 403-hp 3.5-liter flat 6 engine. However, it can also be equipped with a twin-turbo system that adds 200 hp. We'd have to imagine that anyone spending the money on a 1-of-5 supercar will pony up for the extra output. The twin-turbo spec Evantra hits 62 mph in 3.7 seconds.

F&M has already sold the first model and plans to have it delivered by mid-2012. No word on what the cost to own one is, but we'll bet it isn't modest.

I like how small the mirrors are, how do you aspect some to look in those to change lanes? Besides that i think the car is pretty good i like how the doors open you dont see to much of that style. I'm sure the price tag on this car is pretty nice too.
