Everrati Automotive Limited (Everrati™) is delighted to reveal that its flagship, 500bhp, ‘Signature’ wide body model will be one of the stars of the Michelin Supercar Paddock at the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
And the leading technology company, which specialises in the redefining and futureproofing of automotive icons through the integration of the very latest electric vehicle (EV) powertrains, is also pleased to announce a partnership that will see Michelin tyres fitted to all Everrati products, alongside the sharing of vital performance data as iconic cars are future-proofed for the modern era.
Based in Oxfordshire, Everrati completely restores and provides tailored electric power solutions to some of the most iconic cars in the world, including the Porsche 911, Mercedes ‘Pagoda’ and Series IIA Land Rover. Appearing in the Michelin Supercar Paddock will be Everrati’s flagship new model, which is based upon a fully restored 1991 Porsche 911 964.
Featuring carbon fibre body elements and a state-of-the-art EV powertrain capable delivering an electric, it is capable of emission-free driving range of more than 150 miles and sub-4-second 0-62mph acceleration. A key part of the meticulous, sympathetic restoration and re-engineering process is the integration of the car’s new, sustainable-focussed heart – a state-of-the-art EV powertrain, which has its power delivery optimised specifically for the ‘Signature’ wide body and is coupled to a 53kWh battery pack and battery management system.
The transformation to electric power also involves the optimisation of weight distribution, chassis response and safety to enhance the performance of the original while at the same time maintaining its character and soul. Former British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) Champion and Porsche Carrera Cup Driver’s Champion, Tim Harvey, has supported much of the car’s development. Alongside TV’s Vicki Butler-Henderson, Harvey will be on stage at the Michelin Supercar Paddock.
As Everrati strives for an emission free future for performance and luxury cars, its quest for the ultimate in tyres lead the company to Michelin. Everrati CEO Justin Lunny explains:
“When we launched Everrati™ in 2019, it was our mission to create the most desirable, technically advanced, sustainable, zero-emission iconic cars in the world. To fulfil that vision, and to provide discerning customers with a peerless product engineered with industry-leading technology, rigour and attention to detail, we assembled an elite engineering team from OEM, supercar, motorsport, aerospace and EV technology backgrounds.
“To that end, I am delighted that we are partnering with leading tyre manufacturer Michelin. Our ‘Signature’ widebody flagship develops 500bhp and 500Nm of torque. The weight balance is identical to the internal combustion version, it just happens to produce twice the power. Finding a tyre that could cope with our requirements wasn’t easy, until we tried the Pilot Cup Sport 2. We’ve been very happy with the results the tyre has delivered and are absolutely delighted our new car will be one of the Michelin Supercar Paddock star cars at the Festival of Speed. Allowing visitors to see a unique car like our all-electric iconic Porsche is what’s great about Goodwood and we look forward to showing the car, thanks to Michelin.”
Home to some of the most powerful road and track specialist cars, the Michelin Supercar Paddock is one of the most exclusive locations for fans to catch a glimpse of rarely spotted supercars. One of the ‘must see’ sections of the Festival of Speed, it gives fans a chance to see the most desirable, exclusive and beautiful cars on the planet, often for the first time.
The Michelin Supercar Paddock is located next to the startline and is open for all show visitors each day of the event.
Over the coming months, Everrati’s ‘Signature’ wide body will continue to undergo its full development programme. A small number of Signature commissions are available to order now for delivery in late 2021. Prices for each commission begin at £250,000 plus relevant taxes, based on a customer-supplied donor car.
