The last time we heard about Dutch supercar upstart Vencer was a little more than a year ago when it announced it would call its one offering Sarthe. Vencer says the Sarthe will be officially unveiled to the UK in early September at London's Salon Privé.
The Sarthe sure seems to bring the supercar goods. Vencer says it will be a tube steel and chrome-moly chassis attached to a honeycomb aluminum floor. Top Gear says a "510-bhp Corvette V8" sits behind the driver, to which a six-speed manual is bolted. Vencer says the car's carbon fibre bodywork helps keep the weight near 1,390 kilograms (3,064 pounds). Light weight and high power team up to propel the supercar to 96 km/h (60 mph) in just 3.8 seconds and then to a top speed of 325 km/h (202 miles per hour).
Air conditioning, electric windows and locks, "in-car entertainment," an alarm and ABS are the standard accoutrements, but customers can request extras.
Speaking of customers, there won't be very many since production will be "low volume." Pricing hasn't been announced, but the London coming-out party will feature English afternoon tea, champagne and a lobster luncheon. So, bet on including that in the eventual sticker price.
