Vinci Sport

Vinci Sport will be powered by a transverse rear-mid engine capable of more than 200 hp. Among the technical highlights is the extensive use of carbon fiber for both the chassis and the exterior body panels. This car was styled by Ernesto Freitas for CEIIA-CE, a Portuguese engineering centre where the mock up was engineered and built, whose activities also include virtual design, CAE, rapid prototyping, reverse engineering, prototype construction, composite materials for the automotive and aeronautic industry.

The CEILA (Centro para a Excelência e Inovação na Indústria Automóvel) Engineering Centre is a non profit association that was created with the mission of support and promote the development of technical know how that allow the evolution of the Portuguese Industry in the international market chain.
