Evanta is designing a racing car to follow the new Barchetta road car pictured here
Evanta Motors boss Ant Anstead has announced plans to build a new racing car, which is scheduled to be unveiled at the Geneva motor show next year.
Speaking to Autocar at the Goodwood Revival, where the company took the wraps off its new Barchetta road car, Anstead said he wanted his firm to “provide a service for the gentleman racer”.
The new competition car will be produced in collaboration with another vehicle manufacturer, and has already been accepted to compete in an existing race series. Anstead says a one-make racing series exclusively featuring the car is also under consideration.
While Anstead wouldn’t be drawn on any technical details, it’s possible the new car will use the same 450bhp 6.2-litre V8 engine as the Barchetta.
Work on the project is currently in the design stages, but the model is scheduled to be revealed alongside a new GT concept road car at the Geneva show next March.
