It’s Singapore’s first ever hypercar and they’ve set their standards to an incredibly high degree. The Bugatti Chiron is inspiration for them in terms of the overall quality of the car.
This sounds like a very daunting task to take on, but considering what other companies in Singapore have achieved over the last decade, they have a lot of support behind them. However, if you take a look back through the history of car companies who’ve tried to live up to the likes of Ferrari or Porsche, there have been a ton of failures.
The thing that sets Vanda apart from these failures is the fact that they’ve learnt from them. Despite the fact that they’re a fairly new company, they have Wong Fung Industries backing them; this is a business who’s had 53 years of successful experience!
For Vanda Electric, the jump to making a hypercar was bigger than it has been for most companies in the past – they used to create electric scooters…
Maybe this doesn’t fill people with hope, but there’s one thing that should; Williams F1. They have become partners with Vanda and have brought onboard EVERYTHING they know about engineering supercars. This includes their knowledge on the aerodynamics and the material of the car.
With the help of both Wong Fung Industries and Williams F1, Vanda seems like they’re on track to shocking the world with their very first electric hypercar. We’ll know for sure when they unveil it on the 9th of March!
It will mark the first time people living in Singapore will be able to buy a hypercar that doesn’t require them to go overseas.
