DEVINCI AUTOMOBILES: BETWEEN NOSTALGIA AND MODERNITY
The French manufacturer Devinci Cars was founded by Jean-Philippe Dayraut in 2017. He specializes in the design of luxury electric vehicles, with a vintage, retro or artisanal look. Some models are capable of driving a distance of 230 km, before requiring a new charging cycle. They carry a Li-ion battery and a 15 kW motor for a 0 to 50 km/h in less than 5 seconds.
Jean-Philippe Dayraut: a passionate creator of retro-electric vehicles
Jean-Philippe Dayraut has been immersed in the world of sports cars since his early childhood. He has always had a passion for motorsport, mechanics, technology and art. At 14, he designed his first cars.
Jean-Philippe had a successful career. First, he won the Formula France Junior championship (1999) and obtained a 2nd place in BMX France (Max Commençal's Team Sunn). He then won in several other categories, including the French Supertourism Championship (2001), the World Ice Racing Championship (2003), the Peugeot RC Cup competition (2004)...
But he really distinguished himself during the Andros e-Trophy (this is the French rallycross type ice racing championship). He won 6 titles there, during the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2015 editions. On the occasion of the legendary American race at Pikes Peak, he finished in 2nd place.
Jean-Philippe is also the organizer of the Mitjet Supertourisme and Mitjet 2L. These extend to 7 countries, including France, the United States, Spain, Germany, Italy, Denmark and Russia.
He founded the Devinci Cars brand in 2017. The Classic, his first 100% electric vehicle, was remarkably well received when it was presented at the Retromobile Show (in 2018).
