Mazzanti Automobili is an Italian company that produces handcrafted high-performance cars. It was founded in 2002 by Luca Mazzanti and Walter Faralli as Faralli & Mazzanti. It was renamed Mazzanti Automobili after the split of Mazzanti and Farelli in 2010.
Mazzanti Automobili was established in 2002 as Faralli & Mazzanti in Gello di Pontedera (PI) by Luca Mazzanti, specializing in the design and development of handcrafted automobiles, and Walter Faralli, specializing in the restoration of classic cars. The two partners set up a small automobile workshop, which was intended both to restore vehicles and to practice design skills. They developed exotic sports cars with their first endeavour called the F&M Antas which was manufactured entirely by hand.
The enterprise was split into separate units in 2010 namely "Mazzanti Automobili" and "Faralli Restauri" - when the two partners took independent approaches and decided to concentrate on their different inclinations.
Main article: Mazzanti Evantra
In 2011, Luca Mazzanti, after three years of work and with the support of the designer Zsolt Tarnok, presented the project Evantra, a mid-engine coupé to be produced in limited units. During 2012, Mazzanti created full-sized models and began construction of the first unit.
The Evantra was archived in the collection of the Museum of Tuscan Design (Mu.De.To). The Evantra was unveiled at the 2013 "Top Marques Monaco Show."
The company reorganised to produce five cars per year, and used the "Pontedera Circuit" as a research center. However, final tests of Evantras were made in Autodromo di Modena.
The company's main markets are Europe, Russia, China, and United Arab Emirates.
