Luxury German car manufacturer Wiesmann celebrated the UK public debut of Project Thunderball to the delight of the crowd at this past weekend’s Salon Privé London at Royal Hospital Chelsea. Alongside Project Thunderball, Wiesmann also showcased two heritage models, the MF4 and MF5. The three vehicles together brought to life both the rich heritage and history of the brand while also showcasing the exciting electric future.
Roheen Berry, Owner and CEO of Wiesmann: “Project Thunderball represents the next chapter in the Wiesmann story, and it has been wonderful to see the fantastic reception from the crowds at Salon Privé London. We have a rich heritage of making timeless, handcrafted and unique sports cars with exceptional performance and Project Thunderball marks the moment that we begin now combining this with a state-of-the-art all-electric powertrain and cutting-edge technology.”
Revealed in April 2022 to global acclaim and with the first year of production already sold out, Project Thunderball is the all-new, electric roadster that combines the remarkable characteristics of an electric powertrain with the trademark performance, driving pleasure and styling of a true Wiesmann.
Project Thunderball features a classic two-seat, rear-wheel drive configuration and lightweight carbon fibre construction. This is a car that promises to deliver the performance, responsiveness, and engagement that enthusiasts demand. The German-engineered roadster’s dynamics have been achieved by packaging the two electric motors in a rear-mid mounted position, which have a targeted total output of 500kW (680hp) and 1,100 Nm of instant torque to deliver a targeted 0-62mph (0-100km/h) acceleration time of just 2.9 seconds. Powering the motors is a state-of-the-art, 800-volt, 92kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This enables an exceptional targeted range of 500km (WLTP), alongside the convenience of super-fast charging of up to 300kW (DC).
Project Thunderball will be carefully crafted by many of the team who helped grow this illustrious German brand
, using the most modern production technology while retaining Wiesmann’s reputation for bespoke German coachbuilding expertise of the highest order. With pricing starting from 300,000 euros, enthusiasts who wish to register their interest in the following production run are invited to join the new waiting list at www.wiesmann.com
