The new Nathalie is an uncompromising electric super sports car. It is one of the fastest and most dynamic sports cars you can drive with a license plate on the normal road. The Nathalie is the embodiment of freedom - unencumbered ecological freedom – of unlimited, carefree movement, of conscientious speed. It is what we would like to have when we imagine the future. And with its 2Way energy concept, it is more versatile and variable than almost anything before it.
A coupé with racing genes, grille frame, carbon chassis, all-wheel drive, vortex generator, rear diffuser, and rear spoiler – ready for fun on the circuit; With a rally feeling on the mountain track; silent cruising through the inner city; Or just showing off on Highway No. 1 – the street-legal electric super sports car with track performance.
The Nathalie utilises a technology enabling extensive ranges without the need to recharge – an enormous advantage especially in areas lacking EV charging stations. The Nathalie Fuel Cell works environmentally friendly with methanol and delivers a permanent power of 5 kW. Range? Unlimited!
The car is fuelled by methanol – in just three minutes. Methanol provides energy using an electrochemical reaction thus it is far superior to all known fuels, as it can be synthesised in an environmentally neutral way. The car is refuelled in just three minutes, and sufficient energy is available for the continuation of your journey. Uncompromising – how typical of Gumpert!
Its appearance is that of a futuristic, technologically inspired Coupé, the technology straight out of a race car. The Nathalie is a pure concentration on the next curve with everything focused on the driver - everything quickly viewed and available. With its sporty, minimalistic design, it lays the lines for the ultimate electric vehicle.
Roland Gumpert combines today’s most innovative, pioneering concepts. This new Nathalie brings together electric and four-wheel drive, a revolutionary energy concept, uncompromising sportiness and futuristic, technical design – a highly explosive mixture for the ultimate super sports car for the coming decade.
Four electric engines accelerate the vehicle from 0 to 60 in under 2.5 seconds. It glides along almost silently yet has uncontainable power in the motors which propel the vehicle forward with 300-600 kW. Braking power is enhanced with recuperation - the recovery and re-use of the original braking power.
It sets benchmarks – and makes it feel like a child’s play. The Nathalie is a pioneering spirit, a stroke of genius and more than just a clever engineering idea. Its courageous, unique concept reinvigorates the automobile industry’s inventive spirit and combines the proven and established with the possibilities of e-mobility, computing and energy technologies.
The chassis, made using chrome-molybdenum steel tubular design, ensures safety on a par with any racing vehicle. The roll cage is firmly integrated and the carbon exterior-chassis’s lightweight provides an even better track performance. These technologies allowed for a one-of-a-kind interplay between contrasts. The street and racetrack in one – It’s your split time!
