Every year, a handful of new supercars come out of the woodwork and are unveiled on the world stage. Some are extremely successful like the Pagani Zonda or original Koenigsegg CC8, while others simply disappear into an abandoned shed never to be seen again. While this is a shame, as we’d love to see more supercars on the road, it is just a cut-throat industry that very few survive.
One recently unveiled supercar which we think could stick around for at least a few years is Dutch company Vencer with their Vencer Sarthe supercar revealed at Top Marques Monaco 2013 earlier this year. Built around a tubular steel frame with a floor made from aluminium honeycomb and carbon fiber body panels, the weight of the two-seater is only 1,390 kg with a weight distribution of 45 per cent front and 55 rear. The dimensions of the supercar are 4.515 x 1.984 x 1.190 mm and the wheelbase is 2.79 meters long.
The suspension is a double wishbone setup. Stopping power is achieved via discs with a diameter of 385 mm at the front and rear. The center positioned GM-sourced V8 produces 510 hp and 650 Nm of torque. The engine is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox, which converts the power to the 20 inch rear wheels via a limited slip differential. At the front the Dutch company fitted 19 inch wheels. The 0-100 km/h time is 3.8 seconds and it will hit a top speed of 326 km/h.
Our good friend Willem Verstraten Photography recently stumbled upon this bright red Vencer Sarthe in Amsterdam and it is certainly eye-catching!
