• Deliveries start in 2024, with prices starting at €300,000; the waiting list is now open
• Roheen Berry, Wiesmann owner and CEO will present Project Thunderball on Salon Privé London’s opening day
The incredible Wiesmann Project Thunderball is due to make its UK debut at the ritzy Salon Privé London automotive event at the end of April at Royal Hospital Chelsea.
The Wiesmann Project Thunderball will mark the return of the iconic brand, representing a thrilling evolution of the 35-year-old German brand’s history, combining a modern electric powertrain with the distinctive Wiesmann production. It’s the first ever all-electric convertible roadster, delivering 680hp and a jaw-dropping 1,100Nm of torque, its performance is fittingly electrifying: with a targeted 0-62mph in only 2.9 seconds.
The rear-wheel drive, two-seat Wiesmann Project Thunderball contains a unique drivetrain thats design is pushing the limits of architecture configuration. The unique twin axial flux PMSM e-motors run along the centre tunnel up into the front of the vehicle, along with the battery modules shaped into a T.
The bespoke lithium ion NMC ‘module-to-pack’ battery delivers a hefty 92kWh (83kWh usable) and has integrated pouch cells based on series modules. Its targeted range will deliver up to 310 miles – and an 800V high-voltage motor means it can use the latest ultra-rapid 300kW chargers, for lightning-fast recharges. The Wiesmann engineers have developed their own refined thermal management system.
The Wiesmann Project Thunderball has zero-emissions and uses a remarkable Intelligent Regenerative Braking System. This delivers to the driver an immersive and emotive feel lacking in other modern EVs. It has five levels controlled by steering wheel paddles, similar to the shifting of gears on an ICE car. Its soul purpose is to give drivers a feeling of utter involvement and deliver the exhilarating experience famous of a Wiesmann vehicle.
Reservations for this futuristic Wiesmann Project Thunderball are open, with pricing starting at €300,000 (£264,000). Already, the entire first year of production has sold out, and buyers are invited to join the new waiting list ready for when production starts in 2024. The new Weismann Project Thunderball will be made at their state-of-the-art ‘Gecko’ factory in Dülmen, Germany. Weismann has been said to be the last truly independent European sports car marque remaining today, with many of the team who helped grow the iconic German brand are crafting the vehicle alongside fresh talent. Their renowned bespoke German coachbuilding expertise will combine with modern production technology to deliver a deluxe-level of vehicle.
