The UK is set to see its first glimpse of the Deus Vayanne, an all-electric 2,200bhp hypercar produced by Williams Advanced Engineering and Italdesign, of which only 99 will be made.
Following its display at Pebble Beach’s Concept Lawn and events during Monterey Car Week in the USA, visitors to Salon Privé event (31 August – 4 September 2022) at Blenheim Palace will see the pure electric Vayanne on display on the South Lawn of the Palace and take part in dynamic events.
Powered by Williams Advanced Engineering’s innovative electrification technologies, the car will be built at Italdesign’s facilities in Turin, Italy. First deliveries of the all-electric, twin-motor, four-wheel-drive, hypercar are expected in 2024/25 and the company has confirmed its homologation plans incorporate the UK.
Vienna-based Deus Automobiles, in conjunction with Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering, has focused on designing a driveable, functional vehicle that stands out in the increasingly competitive hypercar sector.
Adrian-Filip Butuca, head of design at Deus Automobiles, said: “We can’t wait for our first UK event, and to show the Vayanne to the British market. Salon Privé is a renowned worldwide display, an event that incorporates luxury, innovation, and design – three key elements that we have implemented in the design of Vayanne from start to finish. On the topic of great designs, we can’t wait to see the car alongside the fabulous hats of Boodles Ladies’ Day – a stylish car for the forward-thinking crowd.”
Marco Volpengo, Italdesign head of automotive business development Europe, said: “We are honored to be part of the first phase of the Vayanne and pleased that our technical know-how has been able to lend its hand to such a prestigious and ground-breaking project. Seeing the car through from idea to road-ready reality and being able to work with such a prestigious team, has been an incredible journey, and we can’t wait to see it in its full splendor at Salon Privé.”
Dyrr Ardash, head of strategic partnerships, Williams Advanced Engineering, said: “It’s brilliant to be showcasing the DEUS Vayanne on home soil, especially after such a successful and exciting global tour. As the Deus Vayanne’s Electrification and Technology Partner, we look forward to showcasing our electrification and production capabilities and supporting the program’s performance targets, as well as proudly standing side by side with such a distinguished team. A lot of what we do at Williams Advanced Engineering goes on behind closed doors, so being a public partner in this collaborative and innovative project is hugely inspiring.”
