// A UNIQUE BRAND
VISION is an automobile high fashion house that manufactures, by hand, vehicles sized for gentlemen drivers. Manufactured and assembled in France, our vehicles combine exceptional expertise in motorsports and luxury. Our ambition is to offer our clients an innovative experience that is so much more than an automobile! Have you ever dreamed of becoming a real racing driver? Featuring a groundbreaking and uncompromising design, the VISION cars are developed in collaboration with French experts and two professional Le Mans drivers, with the aim of participating to this mythical race. The 24 Hours of Le Mans are the DNA of VISION. This is why our vehicles will be first developed and produced for the track and then, in a second phase, the experience gained in racing will enable us to transcribe these unique sensations into a road-legal version. In a world where hypercars are racing towards excessive numbers and powers, VISION chooses to race towards emotions and pure sensations.
// 1789, A REVOLUTION
Our first creation, 1789, is a revolution. It is an iconic model that crystallizes French expertise in motorsports and luxury. VISION 1789 – a two-seater vehicle inspired strongly by the prototypes from the 24 Hours of Le Mans – takes the driver’s seat in order to immerse the driver and passenger into the extreme world of automobile racing. 1789 is a real prototype in an evening dress and its interior, a showcase designed to the measure of its owner.
Everything has been thought to provide unique driving sensations to the driver. This is why 1789 has an extremely well worked flat bottom, specially developed to produce an outstanding aerodynamic support. Its power-to-weight ratio close to 1, and its rear transmission are the extension of this vision of motor sport.
In the current context of energy transition, we are convinced that we have smart alternatives to fossil fuels and electricity right in front of us. This is why VISION decided to fit 1789 with an engine running on bio-methane. This motorization, specially developed for endurance racing, has the specificity of having a positive carbon impact by enhancing the bio-methane resulting from the decomposition of organic materials. The interest of this choice is to make our waste a source of energy and to reduce the impact of the methane on global warming.
The different states of bio-methane make it possible to adapt perfectly according to the desired use of the vehicle: indeed, for the race, 1789 will use liquid bio-methane which has the advantage of being less heavy and less cumbersome. For the road, gaseous bio-methane will be used, which does not evaporate. Both will be stored in a tank behind the occupants. This more responsible powertrain works perfectly with today’s combustion engines and allows to keep an incredibly important and emotional element… the sound of Le Mans’ racing cars.
The team and the spirit they bring to the project are our true strengths! The average age at VISION is 26, and our small team size allows us to avoid the tedious compromises and standardization inherent in the classic automobile industry. With the strong experience acquired in the biggest manufacturers and luxury brands, our team is at the forefront of the most advanced expertise and technologies. Through VISION, we don’t just want to create a car. We aim at creating a brand, writing a story and an exciting adventure, highlighting the exceptional know-how of our French partners such as Faster, WRTi, Estival, Genaris Group, but also Michelin, Ferdowsi Consulting and many others.
