Pebble Beach, Calif., Aug. 18, 2022 – Following its world debut in New York and a whirlwind, multi-month European exhibition tour, the DEUS Vayanne returned to America to grace the Concept Car Lawn at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this summer.
“It’s been very busy for the DEUS, Italdesign, and Williams Advanced Engineering teams with great events and also progress on the development side,” said DEUS Founder and Head of Design Adrian-Filip Butuca. “We’re excited to return to America, this time on the west coast, and have another opportunity to show media and Vayanne fans what we’re doing.”
Following the Vayanne world debut at the New York International Auto Show, the project team showed the DEUS Vayanne (day-oos vy-ahn) at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, Top Marques Monaco, and The Battery Show Europe in Stuttgart, Germany. In between were several development and planning sessions at the Italdesign headquarters in Turin, Italy. Butuca provided a glimpse in this recent video.
DEUS also shares more Vayanne details and a new rendering showing some of the of the hypercar’s proposed EV platform technologies. Key facts include: 2,243 horsepower (~1,650 kW), Torque 2040 Nm, 0-100 km/h 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 1.99 seconds. Top Speed 400 km/h (248 mph) top speed, Range 500 km (310 miles), Charge Time (350 kW) 20 minutes to 80 percent SOC. Following its appearance at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the Vayanne immediately headed s to the United Kingdom for Salon Privé Concours d’Elégance, at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire.
Butuca designed the Vayanne to provide hypercar performance and features not commonly associated with high-performance vehicles: a high level of luxury and comfort, usable storage space, and daily usability. DEUS will produce only 99 examples, and no two will be exactly alike and customized to each owner’s individual tastes. Consumers can inquire directly at email@example.com.
First deliveries are expected in 2025, and each Vayanne will be built at Italdesign’s facilities in Turin, Italy, with Williams Advanced Engineering on board to lead the application of its innovative electrification technologies. Together Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering will leverage their deep expertise with prototyping, styling and aerodynamics, series production, electrification, light-weighting, innovative chassis structures, and vehicle and systems integration. Price to be announced.
