Evanta unveils the Evanta Barchetta

TGR Staff

British custom motorcar designer Evanta Motor Company unveiled the first production model of the Evanta Barchetta 6.2L at the Goodwood Revival motor show.

The Evanta Barchetta is a 2-seater open-top speedster, inspired by the design language of 1950s motorsport. (Meaning the Aston Martin DB4 Zagato) Its sleek, sweeping curves and low profile disclose its Anglo-Italian parentage.

The formal unveiling took place on Friday 12th September at Goodwood Revival, with members of the Evanta Barchetta production team in attendance. Each vehicle is designed and built in Britain, hand-crafted using traditional coach building methods, comprising a composite Kevlar body, on a tubular frame. Following in the footsteps of its Le Mans-winning ancestors, the Barchetta’s powerful 6.2L engine produces 450bhp, which, taking into account its light frame gives it exceptional agility.

The company will produce both left and right-hand drive variants, and the Barchetta will be available with either an automatic or manual gearbox. Production will be limited to 24 cars per year, with a total production run of only 99 vehicles - and the waiting list is filling fast.

Following the release of the Evanta Barchetta, the company has announced plans to launch a GT concept car at the Geneva Motor Show in spring 2015.
