Vision 1789 is a supercar that symbolizes French expertise in motorsports and luxury. This two-seater supercar was inspired strongly by the prototypes from the 24 Hours of Le Mans that takes the driver’s seat in order to immerse the driver and passenger into the extreme world of automobile racing. This prototype may not yet exist in physical form yet, but from the renders, we get a glimpse at the sleek interior. Read more for additional pictures and information.
It will be powered by a bio-methane engine designed for endurance racing, while having a neutral carbon impact from the decomposition of organic materials. When in race mode, Vision 1789 will use liquid bio-methane, while gaseous bio-methane is for the road, which does not evaporate. Both will be stored in a tank behind the occupants. There’s no word yet on when we’ll see a running concept, but if this gets enough attention, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it at a Paris Motor Show in the near future.
Everything has been thought to provide unique driving sensations to the driver. This is why 1789 has an extremely well worked flat bottom, specially developed to produce an outstanding aerodynamic support. Its power-to-weight ratio close to 1, and its rear transmission are the extension of this vision of motorsport,” said its designers.
