The new Dutch exotic car maker Vencer unveiled its first production supercar,
the 613-horsepower Sarthe. As compared to the development version, the 2015
Vencer Sarthe features "perfected" exterior features, an updated interior design
and a brand new engine.
Vencer was founded in 2010. Two years later, the Sarthe preproduction prototype was revealed by Prince Albert II of Monaco at Top Marques exhibition in Monaco. Meanwhile Vencer has gone through a period of thoroughly testing with their last pre-production car to validate all new technology for the production model of the Vencer Sarthe. The goal of the engineers was to develop a unique car with true character and analogue feel.
The price starts at 327,000 EUR ($420,000), taxes included, and the new company has set a goal to build and sell one car each month.
2015 Sarthe: Automatic Rear Wing, Aerodynamic Front Splitters
The exterior of the Vencer Sarthe looks striking and powerful. It 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 era. 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.
The 2015 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.
Minimalist Interior Design
A completely new interior design is focused on only driving essentials. The typical wide door sills, close-fitting cockpit and central driving position of the 2015 Vencer Sarthe together with a short nose design, complemented by a long windscreen with direct and unrestricted view on the tarmac, are providing a driving experience that lets the driver become one with the open road, claims Vencer. To keep all driving distractions to a minimum, Vencer has developed its own user interface, called Central Information System. According to the Dutch manufacturer, the Vencer CIS system is a convenient and concise multitasking digital display that provides all critical information one may need at a glance.
All interior panels are produced in-house out of carbon fiber to further save weight. A two-tone leather interior with Alcantara inserts comes as standard and is available in virtually unlimited color combinations. Also a wide variety of materials can be selected to customize the car, with many bespoke options to make each Sarthe truly individual.
