DEVINCI CARS: 4 ANTHOLOGICAL MODELS
Combining comfort, elegance and performance, Devinci vehicles are true works of art. It was in 2016 that the very first collector's car of the brand was born, namely the DEVINCI Cars. Designed by Jean-Philippe Dayraut, a former racing driver driven by a passion for mechanics and art, all models from this 100% French company are fully electric. Already designer of the Midjet series, he wanted to design high-end electric cars equipped with modern technology, without giving up on offering them a vintage dress that gives them this very special design. Here is the presentation of the four Devinci models that you absolutely have to discover.
DEVINCI CARS: TECHNOLOGY AND CRAFTSMANSHIP OF EXCELLENCE
All DEVINCI CARS models have undergone advanced engineering studies. They are the result of many years invested in research and development to meet very high requirements. From the choice of materials, their implementation, their assembly or assembly, nothing has been left to chance.
Available in only 40 copies, the Brigitte is one of the brand's finest successes. Symbolizing elegance in its raw state, this limited-edition model perfectly illustrates Jean-Philippe Dayraut's know-how in terms of craftsmanship. The materials used in the composition of this vehicle are aluminum for the front bodywork and fiber for the rear cover. The Brigitte has a natural raw aluminum color and the bodywork is covered with transparent anti-scratch protection. The chassis, meanwhile, is made of mechanically welded steel and safety was at the heart of the vehicle's design with, in particular, driver and co-driver side reinforcements and a central roll bar.
The grille of the Brigitte is both original, artistic and perfectly integrated into the line of the vehicle. To finish on the exterior of this model, you should know that the rims are made of steel and have the following dimensions: 116'' x 2.5'', which will offer optimal resistance during turns and for the absorption of all the shocks. Like the other Devinci models, this one is equipped with Michelin Pilote X radial tires cut for very high speeds. Inside, the seats are covered in 100% natural leather, which fully meets REACH ecological standards (no chemicals or thinners). The steering wheel is three-spoke and has a diameter of 38.1cm. Made of aluminum and covered with varnished wood, it provides incredible sensations to the pilot. The dashboard brings together all the key information of an electric vehicle, whether it is the state of charge, the remaining range, Eco, Normal and Sport modes, etc. The Brigitte proves to be very efficient on the road and the brand called on one of the French battery leaders to equip this model. The battery has a capacity of 23 KW and a range of 205 km (in Eco mode).
Another Devinci model to combine innovation and artistic manufacture, the Adèle adopts a much sportier appearance than the Brigitte. The exterior is designed with 12 layers of aluminum for the front and fiber also for the rear cover. There is also 100% natural leather in the cabin. There are currently 20 examples of this model… enough to satisfy lovers of truly unique top-of-the-range vehicles. The color of the rear bonnet is a glossy paint dedicated to fibre: RAL 3011. This model has the same side reinforcements and single central hoop for maximum safety for the driver and his passenger. The Adele grille is made of exotic wood to which a highly resistant varnish has been applied. We find the same rims as on the other models of the brand, namely dimensions 16 '' x 3.5 ''.
In order to offer the best accessibility to the vehicle, steps in exotic wood are integrated into the vehicle. In terms of the passenger compartment, the type of leather used for this model is a granulated leather that is particularly resistant to heat and flames. As for the floor, it is also made of exotic wood on which three layers of protection have been applied. The crankset is made of wood and adapts to all rider morphologies. The seats have been the subject of particular care with a very wide range of adjustment and even allowing drivers over 2m tall to take the wheel. The trunk, meanwhile, has a storage capacity of 268 litres. The Adele is equipped with a high-efficiency 15Kw electric motor and the battery has a range of 205km in Eco mode.
Currently available in only 10 units, the Marianne is another illustration of the know-how and quality of the manufacturer's vehicles. This model is very different from the two previous ones since it required more than 200 hours of additional work for its manufacture. The entire exterior and interior design was reworked for the occasion by Jean-Philippe Dayraut for an incredible result. Composed of aluminum and fiber, the body of the Marianne ensures driving comfort that is difficult to match and guarantees maximum rigidity and weight gain for the vehicle. Whether it's the colors or the finishes, each aesthetic element comes from the fertile imagination of Jean-Philippe Dayraut, like the decorative numbers appearing on the bonnet and at the rear of the vehicle. This model has a mechanically welded tubular frame with the same protective devices as the previous models presented. The Marianne's grille is an example of simplicity while giving the vehicle its own identity.
The Marianne is equipped with Michelin Pilote X radial tires renowned for their high performance on the road. The passenger compartment is covered with 100% natural leather and fully waterproofed. The steering wheel has 3 spokes with a diameter of 43.18cm and is covered in varnished wood for the most pleasant steering feel. The dashboard of the Marianne is substantially identical to that of the other models with in particular a GPS, a state of charge or the remaining autonomy. The floor of this model is made of hard aluminum which is covered with an epoxy paint of the most beautiful effect. The seat has a slide assembly and can therefore be easily adjusted via the action of the lever on the dashboard. The engine is here restricted to meet quadricycle compliance at 15 Kw. The pilot will appreciate both the unique sensitivity of the vehicle and its extreme power. The 23 KWh battery offers a total autonomy of 220 km. It should be noted that the Marianne displays higher performance than that of the previous models in the range thanks in particular to an even higher threshold of requirements concerning suspensions, braking and even weight. Finally, this model has a Boost button which increases the maximum speed and also the torque over the entire engine operating range.
Only five copies of the Eugénie were designed. No less than 600 hours of work were required to create this exceptional vehicle which surpasses the three previous models in terms of design and power. It was the designer himself who produced the various painted decorations for this exceptional automobile. 827 waterproof rivets in aviation-grade stainless steel equip the body of the Eugénie and give it incredible robustness. Whether it is the counter, the dashboard or the floor, all the elements fitted to this model have been specially created for this occasion.
Within the cabin of the Eugénie with its luxurious finish, the seats have been manufactured for "sport comfort" and will guarantee the well-being of both the pilot and his passenger. Thanks to their structure, the ventilation of the backrest will be an additional source of comfort. The rest of the interior is natural leather. A special steering wheel equips this model. This is made of aluminum covered with varnished wood and will deform in the event of an impact so as not to injure the pilot. The dashboard is substantially identical to other Devinci models with the addition of a switch that will increase the maximum speed of the vehicle. The dashboard also has a V-shaped windshield that provides optimal aerodynamics to the whole. At the level of the lithium battery, each module of the latter has been carefully selected in order to make the Eugénie a high-performance car beyond expectations. Its 23 KWh battery offers a range of 250 km and recharges in record time. Of all the models in the range, the Eugénie is unquestionably one of the most powerful and is aimed at sports driving enthusiasts. Among the accessories included in this model, it is possible to mention the presence of competition shock absorbers, an interior protective cover or a dashboard clock with Swiss movement. The Eugénie symbolizes the craftsmanship of the brand and its ability to design unique cars in the world.
