Vencer Sarthe, the supercar named after Le Mans’ iconic Circuit de la Sarthe track, is finally heading into production for the 2015 model year. Inspired by the ’80s Le Mans era and enhanced by numerous updates, this new masterpiece is here to give new meaning to term “supercar”.
The Vencer claims it strikes the perfect balance between an analogue past and modern day comfort, declaring that there are over 100 changes compared to earlier prototypes.
- Main ingredients of this car are a very powerful engine, lightweight hybrid chassis and manual gearbox.
- Unlike the original, naturally aspirated 510-horsepower V8, there’s a 6.3-liter supercharged V8 making 622bhp (457kW) at 6500 rpm and 838 Nm (618 lb-ft) of torque at 4000 rpm.
- The body panels of the car are made up of carbon fiber to provide safety and low total weight.
- For super strong and rigid chassis, floor of the car consists of an aluminum honeycomb structure.
- The weight of car is just 1470kg; it’ll do 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds and top out at 210mph.
- Its CIS system (Central Information System) provides all critical information one may need at a glance.
The combination of lightweight construction and optimal power to weight ratio make the car’s performance and dynamic abilities highly intriguing.
