The latest electric startup, Deus Automobiles, has unveiled a supercar with ridiculous horsepower and torque and is expected to produce 99 units by 2025.
The Deus Vayanne is a new electric supercar with 2200 horsepower and 1475 pound-feet of torque.
The Austrian-based company claims Vayanne will be able to reach speeds of 62 mph in less than two seconds and reach a top speed of 248 mph.
Deus said deliveries will begin in 2025 and only 99 Vayannes will be built.
However, another power startup is booming at the scene, but this company appears with some names attached. Austria-based Deus Automobiles unveiled its first car, the Vayanne electric supercar, at the 2022 New York auto show.
Deus has partnered with Italdesign, the design firm founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro, and Williams Advanced Engineering, a subsidiary of the Formula 1 team of the same name, to create Vayanne, which is expected to reach customers in 2025.
Deus calls Vayanne a “production-oriented concept” and the company is touting some notable performance figures (along with the caption that they’re “computer-simulated performance, not authenticated”). No specific details have been provided on the number or direction of the electric motors, but Deus claims Vayanne produces 2,200 horsepower and 1,475 pound-feet of torque. Deus said this would push Vayanne to 62 mph in less than 1.99 seconds and reach a top speed of 248 mph. It remains unclear how Williams Advanced Engineering was involved in the development of Vayanne’s powertrain, and we will take these claims with a large pile of salt.
The design is beautiful, if a little derivative. Deus said the shape of the front and rear grilles was inspired by an infinity loop, but instead we saw hints about the Bugatti Chiron and Lotus Evija. Vayanne has a traditional mid-engine supercar ratio and is decorated with multiple spoons and vents. Inside, Deus said natural skin is produced using “advanced, sustainable technological solutions” but did not specify what these processes were. Deus said only 99 Vayannes will be produced and the startup is aiming to start deliveries by 2025. We don’t recommend holding your breath.
