The entire first year of production of the Wiesmann ‘Project Thunderball’ the self-styled “world’s first all-electric luxury roadster” has already sold out. Since the order book opened in September last year, demand from customers worldwide has been exceptional, with the two-seater now allocated for the first year of production.
Revealed in April 2022, the Wiesmann Project Thunderball is the world’s first all-electric luxury roadster. Featuring a classic two-seat, rear-wheel drive layout and lightweight carbon fibre construction,. Can Wiesmann deliver a digital experience that is on par with the analog performance, responsiveness, and engagement that Wiesmann enthusiasts demand?
The German-engineered, hand-built roadster’s dynamics are aided by packaging the two electric motors in a rear-mid mounted position, which have a targeted total output of 500kW (680hp) and 1,100 Nm of instant torque to deliver a targeted 0-62mph (0-100km/h) acceleration time of just 2.9 seconds.
Powering the motors is an 800-volt, 92kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This enables a targeted range of 500km (WLTP), along with the convenience of super-fast charging of up to 300kW (DC).
Production will commence in 2024 at Wiesmann’s ‘Gecko’ facility in Dülmen, Germany. First customer deliveries will begin in 2024.
