Vienna, Austria, May 18, 2022 – As the Big Apple hosted the DEUS Vayanne’s (day-oos vy-ahn) world premiere at the New York International Auto Show, the DEUS, Italdesign, and Williams Advanced Engineering team already was creating an electrifying European events roadmap and whirlwind transcontinental tour for the newborn ‘shining star’ electric all-wheel drive hypercar.
The all-new production-oriented electric hypercar, being developed with technical support from Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering, is set for its inaugural showing at the famed Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. With the stunning Lake Como in Cernobbio, Italy, as the background, the DEUS Vayanne will carve its place in history at this annual exhibition of prestigious historic vehicles, scheduled for May 20-22, 2022.
Following Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, the Vayanne – showcasing its timeless design language that does not fit among current electric vehicle design trends – then heads to Monaco for its European debut where it will be among the select supercars unveiled by H.S.H Prince Albert II of Monaco at the official inauguration of Top Marques Monaco, scheduled to be held June 8-12, 2022, at the Grimaldi Forum.
“Our world debut in New York sparked worldwide excitement about the Vayanne and what we’ll accomplish with Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering,” said DEUS Founder and Head of Design Adrian-Filip Butuca. “Now it’s time to give our many European fans chances to see the Vayanne in real life at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and Top Marques Monaco, both highly prestigious, influential, and respected exhibitions.”
Butuca designed the Vayanne to provide hypercar performance while offering qualities not often associated with high-performance vehicles: a high level of luxury and comfort, usable storage space, and most importantly a daily usability, making it unique in the competitive hypercar class.
DEUS will produce only 99 examples, and no two will be exactly alike as each owner will customize their Vayanne to their individual tastes. 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.
