The Vencer Sarthe supercar is finally heading into production for the 2015 model year. It is as fast as the wind and it is coming from - The Netherlands.
Supercar A new incarnation of the beast from The Dutch builders
The production version of the Vencer Sarthe looks even more striking and powerful than before. The Vencer Sarthe is named after the circuit "la Sarthe" and the details incorporated into the car are a subtle tribute to the sports cars from the '80s Le Mans. The bodywork of the Sarthe is a tight wrapping of the raw power that lies beneath, expressed in smooth lines and profoundly sculpted flanks. The fluent shape of the car allows the lines to run cleanly from the short bonnet to conclude in a typical and aerodynamic long "Kamm" tail.
A new masterpiece forms an integral part of the Vencer philosophy relating to the commitment to sheer driving pleasure. The Vencer 6.3L V63SC engine is a new development for the MY 2015 model.
This powerful eight-cylinder unit is composed of the best high-end OEM components available. Inspired by the '80s Le Mans era, the engine stands out for its sublime power delivery, a deliberate broad power range and raw mechanical feel. The 6.3L V8 with supercharger boasts 622BHP (457kW) at 6500 rpm, and 838 Nm (618 lb-ft) of torque at 4000 rpm. Vencer has chosen to add a supercharger not only for increased power output, but also for immediate throttle response and impressive torque figures (650 Nm starting at 1500 rpm).
The MY2015 production model has some notable new exterior design features including a new quarter glass design, open air-flow C-pillars, a new engine cover, aerodynamic front splitters and an automatic rear spoiler. The new quarter glass design in clear coat carbon with open C-pillars increase the aerodynamic flow and together with the automatic rear spoiler they provide additional down force on the rear axle. A new engine cover design and larger side air inlets have been integrated to ensure a greater airflow and cooling to the new engine.
A new interior design features a clear and clean minimalist focus on only driving essentials. The typical wide door sills, close-fitting cockpit and central driving position of the Sarthe together with a short nose design, complemented by a long windscreen with direct and unrestricted view on the tarmac, are providing an impressive driving experience that lets the driver become one with the open road. To keep all driving distractions to a minimum, Vencer has developed its own Central Information System.
A two-tone leather interior with Alcantara inserts comes as standard and is available in virtually unlimited colour combinations. Also a wide variety of materials can be selected to customize your car, with many bespoke options to make each Sarthe truly individual. ■
