BESPOKE CARBON FIBER ATELIER VITESSE | AU DESSUS DÉBUTS

Bethesda, Maryland – Boutique carbon fiber atelier Vitesse | AuDessus, manufacturer of bespoke automotive pieces, announces its launch worldwide.

La FerrariVitesse | AuDessus, (or “Superior Speed” in French), has just launched its services globally. The company handcrafts bespoke carbon fiber exteriors, interiors, components and monocoques for the world’s most exciting and exclusive automotive machines.

Using the best materials available and employing cutting-edge technologies, Vitesse | AuDessus produces one-off parts which meet, and often exceed, OEM standards.

“Our clients have already selected the very best in their lives,” says Vitesse | AuDessus CEO Stefany Sanchez. “Everything they own is a reflection of their unique taste: from their home, yacht or jet all the way down to their cufflinks. So why should they accept a supercar or exotic vehicle that is no different than the one in their neighbor's private garage? Thus, the challenge we were presented with was, how do we make something that is already incredibly rare, sexy and exciting even rarer, even sexier and even more exciting? The answer? We adorn every inch of it in handcrafted carbon fiber.”

Vitesse | AuDessus offers full carbon fiber body OEM solutions for top-of-the-range extreme machines like the Bugatti Veyron, McLaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918, Lamborghini Aventador and many others.

“At Vitesse | AuDessus we provide our clients with the opportunity to tell a better story,” explains Sanchez.

To that end, the company encourages its clients to become engaged in the planning and creative process: supercar owners are furnished with the latest 3D renderings and physical samples to help them establish their personal mandate, and Vitesse | AuDessus’s creations conform or diverge from OEM standards accordingly.

This novel ‘Saville Row experience’ offers Vitesse | AuDessus clients a selection of weaves, colors and final finishes; after every seam is planned, each piece is meticulously fabricated and finished by hand. The company also carries out the installation with an onsite visit, where feasible.

Carbon fiber exteriors typically range in price from $100k-$200k; bespoke pieces for Bugatti Veyron, Mclaren P1, Ferrari LaFerrari and Ferrari Enzo may carry a premium over that.

Vitesse | AuDessus. Tell a better story.

Vitesse | AuDessus’s products are 100% carbon fiber, pre-impregnated with activated resin. After laying the fabric by hand, the part is autoclave-cured, then meticulously finished, again by hand. Creating a full carbon fiber exterior to OEM specs typically takes 6-8 weeks. 

Vitesse | AuDessus offers onsite installation in the US, UK, Europe, Middle East and Singapore. The installation process typically takes 1-2 weeks. After installation, all original equipment is returned in pristine condition.

Carbon fiber offers extraordinary weight savings over aluminum and steel and increased structural rigidity. Beyond function, Vitesse | AuDessus carbon fiber creations are individual works of handcrafted art. 

As with any luxury good, rarity is an important valuation component. There are few full carbon fiber exotics and supercars on the market today. Thus, each full carbon fiber automotive machine delivered may become more valuable than its standard version.
