The newest vehicle from the JC stables arrives with poise, style, performance, and confidence. The all-new Vincere is here.
Another ground-breaking design from the JC house.
In Latin, Vincere means, "To Conquer." The JC Vincere is aimed towards the successful professional who must travel in poise, style, and with confidence. The Vincere delivers all in spades. The Vincere has a sleek, muscular body, its power hidden in the bulging wheel fenders and sharp surfacing accents, like a finely cut suit over a toned body. JC's design language speaks clearly here, a perimeter line running around the car with the bulging flanks taken from the Volant concepts. A raising side swash is a more dynamic version of the one seen on the Virtu sedan. Striking rear taillamps are a new interpretation of the JC taillamp design language seen on the first Vurig. And finally, the T grille up front with its offset JC badge bravely heralds in another ground breaking piece of design language for JC vehicles.
The front end is designed with no visible headlamps, just like the Vayu concept from Detroit. The headlamps are hidding within the grille but make their presence known when the car is turned on, with bright LED daytime running lamps. At night, the headlamps shine strongly from within the grille, giving life to the engine of the vehicle.
Other details abound in the Vincere. The floating rear view mirrors make an appareance, as does an exquistely detailed triangular air vent on the front fender, which makes another stylistic connection to the Volant roadster. The large, airy DLO is pillarless and features windows that completely slide down, making for a very airy ambience inside in addition to the optional windshield-to-roof glass. A pop-out spoiler is integrated into the rear glass, allowing the Vincere to maintain its slippery shape without sacrificing performance.
A solid foundation for a stunning machine.
The JC Vincere is based off the critcially acclaimed Virtu platform, itself a stretched version of the critically acclaimed Vurig platform. The Vincere is only an inch or two shorter than the Virtu sedan it is based off of. The Vincere comes standard with all wheel drive but even still is the lightest vehicle in its class by far, making use of the Virtu's lightweight suspension materials and tipping the scales at just 3200 pounds. The Vincere will come with two engine options: the 3.3.l I-6 producing 300 horsepower and 280 ft. lb. of torque, or the 4.4.l 380 hp V8 found in the Virtu. In addition, it also uses the Vendetta's dual-clutch gear box
The newest expression of poise.
The JC Vincere goes on sale worldwide this fall with the 6-cylinder model starting at $50,000, and the 8-cylinder model starting at around $56,000. The Vincere sits in a niche of it's own, fending off the BMW 6-series with superior looks and performance for almost $20,000 less. Consider the competition conquered, indeed.
I hope you guys enjoy it!!! Comments and criticisms are more than welcome, please!
