New Wiesmann Project Thunderball 2024 | Electric Cabrio With 671 HP

Wiesmann introduced an electric roadster, known as Project Thunderball, earlier this year and now the company has released additional details ahead of its launch in 2024.

The model rides on a bespoke aluminum spaceframe architecture and features a T-shaped 92 kWh (gross) Li-ion NMC battery pack, which weighs 1,102 lbs (500 kg) and enables the roadster to travel approximately 310 miles (500 km) on a single charge. Wiesmann notes the battery’s capacity is similar to what’s found on electric sedans and crossovers, and this enables the roadster to “bridge the gap from a pure short-trip leisure car to a serious weekend car.”

The battery powers two rear-mid mounted motors, which produce a combined output of up to 671 hp (500 kW / 680 PS) and 811 lb-ft (1,100 Nm) of torque. The company says this should enable the carbon fiber bodied roadster to rocket from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds.
