The Vanwall Vandervell S is announced in Germany.

The Vanwall brand is now remembered only by Formula 1 enthusiasts.

It was the name of the British racing team, which in the fifties, founded by Tony Vandervell, and the leading engineer was Colin Chapman (although he by then already had his own company Lotus).

But that stable stopped existing in 1961. But in her honor was named a modern German company Vanwall Racing.

It was founded back in 2000, and for a long time was called ByKolles Racing (in honor of the founder and owner Romulus Kolles), but last year it registered all the rights to the historic name and rebranded.

The company’s main focus is endurance racing (including the 24 Hours of Le Mans).

Last year was announced a new Vanwall Vandervell 680 car of its own design (before the team used ENSO prototypes), as well as its road version Vanwall Vandervell 1000 with a 1000 hp V8 engine.

Finishing of these cars is not completed yet, but the company has already announced another project that has nothing to do with races and hypercars.
