New Austrian automaker Deus unveiled an all-electric hypercar at the New York Auto Show that is expected to become one of the most powerful cars on sale.

Developed in partnership with Italdesign and Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), the Deus Vayanne is expected to produce over 2,169 hp and 1,475 lb-ft of torque, according to computer simulations.

If correct, that would mean the model is significantly more powerful than the 1877hp Pininfarina Battista, the 1923hp pre-production Lotus Evija and the 1914hp Rimac C_Two.

“To highlight this harmony, we chose to style the Vayanne around the idea of ​​symmetry and geometric alignment of its lines and design elements.”

The Vayanne is believed to be based on a “turnkey” package announced by WAE and Italdesign in 2021. The package is meant to fit crossovers, sedans and GTs, and created from recycled aluminum and composite materials.

The companies say it can be fitted with two, three or four electric motors and support battery sizes of up to 160kWh for a potential range of up to 620 miles.
