DEUS unveils the Vayanne: its new EV hypercar designed by Italdesign

Three Brands, One Mission – Reimagining the Most Powerful Electric Hypercar in History

DEUS Automobiles, Italdesign, and Williams Advanced Engineering stand as one to inspire the way to luxury electric hypercars. This unique partnership emerged from DEUS’ ambition to design and create an electric hypercar set to become the benchmark of driving emotion. Our commitment to achieving perfection is further refined by Italdesign’s heritage and skills and Williams Advanced Engineering’s ground-breaking electrification technologies. The Vayanne design concept began to take shape in 2020 at DEUS Automobiles, and from the start it embodied the idea of merging an everlasting spirit with modernity and paying homage to DEUS’ Viennese roots.

Vayanne is the result of the three-way collaboration of philosophies and commitments with a shared goal of producing the first electric vehicle in automotive history to cross the 2,200 horsepower mark while delivering a comfortable and luxurious ride, outstanding performance figures, and maximum daily usability in the hypercar class.

With a ground clearance of 12 cm (4.7 inches) and useable storage space, the car is a perfect blend of performance and practicality, while harnessing an acceleration figure of under 1.99 seconds for the 100 km/h (0-62 mph) launch truly deserves the title of master of versatility.

The main exterior design feature is the taillight in shape of the infinity symbol. 

The Production Version of the DEUS Vayanne will Feature Expert Technical Support from Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering. The production version of the Vayanne will be limited to a series of 99 units, with the first delivery in 2025.

AGTZ Twin Tail

In a groundbreaking collaboration, the renowned Italian coachbuilder Zagato and the innovative La Squadra have joined forces to usher the art of coachbuilding into a new era. Unveiled at Zagato’s historic Milan atelier, the AGTZ Twin Tail represents a daring fusion of art and engineering, seamlessly blending heritage with cutting-edge technology. Andrea Zagato, whose grandfather founded Carrozzeria Zagato in 1919, emphasizes the importance of telling the stories of iconic cars from the past to inspire future generations.

The AGTZ Twin Tail draws inspiration from the A220, a car that, despite falling short of its Le Mans victory target in the late 1960s, left an indelible mark. The designers, refusing to accept defeat, transformed the A220 by slicing its bodywork and creating a 30cm-shorter tail. This decision redirected the car’s focus to shorter circuits and rally stages, resulting in podium finishes that solidified its place in automotive history.

Zagato’s modern reinterpretation, the AGTZ Twin Tail, breathes new life into the A220’s tenacious spirit. Built on the chassis of the Alpine A110 berlinette, a contemporary mid-engine icon, this thoroughly modern GT car offers a dramatic twist. The car’s design allows owners to choose between a longtail for tailored elegance or a shorttail for a muscular punch. Limited to just 19 units, production has already begun, with prices starting at €650,000 before taxes.

The AGTZ Twin Tail celebrates its racecar ancestor’s legacy through groundbreaking innovation. The car seamlessly integrates the original A220 longtail’s stunning aerodynamics with the muscular intent of the shorttail. What was once a destructive transformation is now repeatable at the owner’s whim, thanks to a removable longtail that transforms the car into a piece of exquisite automotive sculpture. This bold vision propels the world of coachbuilding forward with renewed vigor, showcasing the seamless marriage of heritage and progress.

The collaboration between Zagato and La Squadra has given birth to the AGTZ Twin Tail, a modern masterpiece that pays homage to the iconic A220 while pushing the boundaries of coachbuilding innovation. With its limited production and the ability to transform between longtail and shorttail, this unique GT car invites automotive enthusiasts to be a part of a historic narrative that seamlessly bridges the past and the future.
