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.

It will be showcased in the Williams Advanced Engineering exhibit in Messe Stuttgart Hall 8, Stand No. D30.

On August 2021 a few months after its New York world debut, the Vayanne will be returning to America for the much-awaited The Lodge at Pebble Beach. U.S. automotive enthusiasts and a will have the chance to see the Vayanne on display.

Italdesign head of automotive business development Europe Marco Volpengo shared, “We are really satisfied with the results achieved with the Vayanne, in this first phase of our collaboration with DEUS. 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.”

Going Once, Going Twice: The best bikes from the Bonhams February sale

bmw rs 500 bonhams february sale 2024 745x497 1 jpg

Ex-Hans-Otto Butenuth BMW RS 500 at the Bonhams February sale
The Bonhams February sale is about to wrap up, so we’re taking a break from our regular scheduled programming to pick our favorite motorcycles from the auction. From an Ariel Square Four and a 1989 Kawasaki ZX-10, to Hans-Otto Butenuth’s BMW 500 Rennsport [above], here are seven classic motorcycles that we’d love to park in the Bike EXIF garage.

1907 Quadrant at the Bonhams February auction
1907 Quadrant In the early 1880s, two blokes by the names of Walter and William Lloyd patented a pedal tricycle steering mechanism, which they (very confusingly) called the ‘Quadrant.’ Anyway, Quadrant went on to make bicycles, tricycles, and motorcycles, and, by 1901, had emerged as one of Britain’s earliest motorcycle manufacturers.

This 453 cc Quadrant was originally built in Coventry and was meticulously restored by a previous owner. It showcases its history through hand-written notes, technical drawings, old registrations, marque-related literature, and an SMCC Pioneer Certificate.

Road tested: TFX Suspension Xtreme adjustable rear shocks

tfx suspension review 745x497 1 jpg

TFX Suspension review
I got lucky when I bought my 2012-model Triumph Bonneville SE last year. A single-owner bike with less than 1,500 miles on the dial, it had spent most of its life trickle-charging in a garage. What’s more, the previous owner had thrown a handful of tasteful factory accessories at it (and a few that were less well-judged).

There was one key ingredient missing though; good suspension. Most modern classics roll out of the factory with suspension components that are adequate at best, but the older air-cooled Bonneville’s setup is downright poor. Small LED turn signals and a fancy sprocket cover might make your bike look prettier, but new shocks—like the fully adjustable TFX Suspension Xtreme units now gracing the tail end of my Triumph—will make it ride better.

TFX Suspension Xtreme rear shocks review

Based in The Netherlands, TFX Suspension is run by a small and passionate team, led by founders Hans-Dieter Fischer and Alex Meijs. The two of them formed TFX fourteen years ago when the suspension company that they were working for folded. Now they produce components on their terms, with the sort of hands-on approach that’s often missing from larger companies.

Their catalog includes various mono- and twin-shock items, suitable for a wide range of on- and off-road applications, plus a handful of front suspension upgrades. (We’ve seen their parts on custom bikes from Bottpower, Powerbrick, CNCPT Moto, and more.) They sent me a set of their Xtreme shocks to test out on my Triumph Bonneville; fully-adjustable units that retail for €1,399 [$1516].
