The New York International Auto Show hosted the DEUS Vayanne’s (day-oos vy-ahn) world premiere.Even as the world premiere was ongoing, the DEUS, Italdesign, and Williams Advanced Engineering team were already busy working on an exciting European events roadmap and transcontinental tour for their newest gem, the electric all-wheel drive hypercar.

DEUS is currently developing the all-new production-oriented electric hypercar with technical support from Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering. They are scheduled to show it at the renowned Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. On May 20-22, 2022, the DEUS Vayanne will make history at the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este, an annual exhibition of the most esteemed historic vehicles.

The Vayanne will then head on to Monaco for its European debut where it will showcase its timeless design language that sets itself apart from all the current electric vehicle design trends. On June 8-12, at the Grimaldi Forum, they will be one of the few supercars that will be unveiled by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco at the official inauguration of Top Marques Monaco.

DEUS Founder and Head of Design Adrian-Filip Butuca shared, “Our world debut in New York sparked worldwide excitement about the Vayanne and what we’ll accomplish with Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering. Now it’s time to give our many European fans chances to see the Vayanne in real life at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este and Top Marques Monaco, both highly prestigious, influential, and respected exhibitions.”

Butuca designed the Vayanne to seamlessly bring together the high-performance that a hypercar can provide with the highest level of comfort, luxury, usable storage space, and daily usability. The latter qualities are the ones that are typically given less importance in competitive hypercars.

Only 99 examples will be produced by DEUS, and with the level and freedom of customization that each customer will have with their respective Vayanne, DEUS is confident that there will be no two Vayanne that will be exactly alike. First deliveries of the Vayanne will start in 2025.

Each Vayanne will be manufactured in Turin, Italy at Italdesign’s facilities partnered with Williams Advanced Engineering to lead the application of the innovative electrification technologies of the hypercar. Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering will work hand in hand to tap on their expertise with prototyping, series production, styling and aerodynamics, light-weighting, electrification, innovative chassis structures, and vehicle and systems integration.

Thanks to our distinctive experience in low series vehicle development and manufacturing, we are able to provide our technical support and know-how. Moreover, we are excited to apply and integrate the innovative technologies provided by our partner Williams Advanced Engineering.”

Here comes trouble: A Triumph TR6 with a Matchless frame

Published

custom triumph tr6 matchless frame 625x417 1

Kids are impressionable, especially when motorcycles are involved. That magical combination of sound, smell and danger has a way of imprinting itself on young minds. But Kyle Harvey didn’t just dream of bikes as a child—he practically grew up with them.

Kyle’s trade is tool and die making, but his passion is building bikes. His father, Garth Harvey, got Kyle and his brother into bikes at a young age; as soon as they could start their old man’s vintage motorcycles, they were riding them. Living in Edenvale in South Africa’s Gauteng province, the boys also had direct access to the local Classic Motorcycle Club.

 

The folks at the CMC made quite an impression on young Kyle—and taught him everything he knows about vintage bikes. After helping numerous friends work on their bikes, he went on to open his own shop, named simply ‘The Workshop.’ Kyle has been building and restoring classic motorcycles for over a decade now.

This cheeky bobber is his latest build, and it’s immensely fascinating. The engine’s from a Triumph TR6 Trophy, the frame is from a Matchless, and the quirky handmade details on it are endless.

The Swan Song of the V12

Published

on

The V12 engine holds a special place in the heart of many automotive and motorsports fans. For some, it’s the sound of Formula 1 through the years, especially during the 1990s. For others, it’s engines like the 6.1 L BMW S70/2 from the McLaren F1 or the 3.9L Lamborghini V12 that powered all their cars from the Miura through to the Diablo. No matter where it lies in your heart, it is the “proper” configuration for many: 6 cylinders per bank, put into a V, and firing in an odd sequence to give it that special roar under power.

Yet, as concerns over fuel efficiency, qualms about environmental impact, and high-powered turbocharged V8 or V6 engines are the norm now, the V12 is slowly, but surely, being put to rest. In fact, the only place that V12s are still hanging on by the last threads of their engine mounting bolts are in supercars, hypercars, and a few ultra-luxury cars. Even then, many exotic brands have announced that their next cars will either be V10s or turbo V8s and V6s.

Since it appears that the swan song of the V12 is reaching a crescendo, we thought it only appropriate to celebrate the few remaining cars out there that carry them. It may be the last time we see some of these brands, many of which are known for their V12s.

The writing is on the wall for the prancing horse, as the new Ferrari 296 GTB is showing the direction that Maranello is headed. Yet, unless you were invited to snag one of the limited-edition Monza SP1 or SP2 cars, there is still one car you can buy from the legendary marque that has all 12 cylinders fully intact.

The 6.5L F140 GA 65-degree V12 in the front of the 812 is the last road-going version of the V12 that debuted in the Ferrari Enzo. Producing a monstrous 789 HP and 530 lbs-ft of torque, it is no slouch either, as when the 812 Superfast debuted, it was the most powerful naturally aspirated production car engine ever made.

It has the typical low-rev Ferrari roar that rises into a howl as the car revs up to nearly 9,000 RPM, and will catapult the 3,845 (1,744 kg) car to 60 MPH in 2.9 seconds. As far as a curtain call is concerned, that’s a great way to bow out and focus on hybrids and turbocharged engines.

Mercedes-Benz used to be at the very top of the V12 pecking order when it came to luxury performance cars. Such classics as the S 65 AMG from the mid-2000s and the 500 TE AMG W123 Touring from the very end of the 1970s came with big V12s that sound astounding, but the biggest and baddest of the Mercedes V12s left on in a production car is the M279 E60 LA that hauled the S65 AMGs of 2014.

Road Tested: Gear from Shoei, Akin Moto and Rev’It!

Published

on

In our continuing quest to source motorcycle gear that combines safety and style, we bring you our thoughts on Shoei’s new ECE 22.06-approved NXR2 helmet. Plus a stealthy riding parka from Akin Moto, and the perfect pair of urban riding gloves from Rev’It!.

Shoei NXR2 helmet It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Shoei’s helmets. Every Shoei I’ve owned has fit and felt right from the first wear, with no major deviations in their sizing or shape from model to model. So when I was looking for a do-it-all street helmet to replace my well-used Shoei RYD, the new NXR2 was a no-brainer… and it hasn’t disappointed.

I loved the RYD for its combination of neutral styling, comfort and ventilation. The NXR2 basically feels like a premium version of the RYD; it has the same clean aesthetic, but ramps up the performance. And it’s one of the few helmets that meet with Europe’s new, and more stringent, ECE 22.06 standard.
