- The ability to aquire a bespoke sportscar does not come along very often
There will be multiple aesthetic signals firing at you thick and fast as the first gaze upon the Evanta Barchetta. Drink it in. It is achingly beautiful, especially in this colour scheme, and is reminiscent of a number of different 50s sports racing cars of the period. Ferrari, Aston Martin Zagato’s, Maserati and the Browns Lane competition Jaguars to name but a few.
The short-lived British Evanta Motor Company was the brainchild of Ant Anstead, a hugely knowledgeable gentleman with the foresight to be able to visualise something so glorious. The composite Kevlar body envelopes a truly frightening Chevrolet 6.2 litre LS3 engine pushing out over 450bhp. Mr. Anstead, the anchor-man from tv’s ‘For the Love of Cars’, did not just focus on the aesthetics. They followed through with fully adjustable suspension, bias adjustable disc brakes all round, full stainless 16" wire wheels, bespoke cooling and fuel systems, modern ECU power, plus leather and Alcantara trim. Offered with deep rich burgundy paintwork and complementary Oxblood Red leather interior, it can only really be described as faultless. Not content with the exterior design and the technical thought that has gone through this project, the cockpit is all handmade leather, quilted transmission tunnel and doorcards with the icing on the cake, a machine-turned aluminium steering wheel boss, wood-rimmed steering wheel and tonneau cover if required. With a full one year MoT test certificate, it would appear that the chassis number shows this to be the very first one made.
