Vencer Unveils the Production-Spec, 622-HP Sarthe

Reveal / 117 Comments

And it's named for the Circuit de la Sarthe at Le Mans.

Boutique Dutch supercar builder Vencer unveiled its first product earlier this year at the Top Marques Monaco show. The Vencer Sarthe is a 622 horsepower, mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive that will carry a sticker price of €270,882, excluding tax. With a planned production rate of just one car per month, the Sarthe is an advanced, yet electronics-free modern day supercar. Vencer opted to go with a 6.3-liter supercharged V8 that now produces said 622 ponies and 618 lb-ft of torque.

The car shown earlier this year was a pre-production model, and lacked the supercharger. It had a reported output of 510-hp and 480 lb-ft. The car you can buy will now make the sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds, instead of 3.8. Top speed has been clocked in at 210 mph. Vencer claims it's made over 100 changes compared to those first prototypes. What still remains is a carbon fiber body and double wishbone front and rear suspension. It weighs in at a total of 3,064 lbs thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber body panels, high-strength tubular steel, and an aluminum honeycomb floor structure. It has a weight distribution of 45/55 front/rear. Production is apparently already underway in the Netherlands.
