Vencer, a newly established supercar manufacturer based in Vriezenveen in the Netherlands, will be launching its very first model at the exclusive Salon Prive luxury and supercar show in the UK.
The car is the Sarthe. Befitting a small-scale and new carmaker like Vencer, it is a "low-volume, exclusively handmade mid-engine sports car." Utilizing a hybrid space-frame chassis made of high-grade tubular steel, with chrome-molybdenum safety structure and rear sub-frame, and an aluminum honeycomb floor, the combination of materials and techniques results in a lightweight, super-strong and rigid chassis.
The Sarthe sports an eight-cylinder engine that's mounted in a mid-engine configuration and is directly bolted onto a six-speed manual gearbox. Vencer claims that this setup gives the car a "a very balanced weight distribution of 45% at the front and 55% at the rear."
According to Vencer, the Sarthe "ensures a pure and direct vehicle control without additional electronic interference," with only ABS and EBD systems as the electronic nannies to aid the driver "in difficult and unsafe situations."
