Nathalie in the Green Hell

10/25/2018The fire baptism at the Trackday on the legendary Nürburgring is passed!

The Nathalie as a joint product of engineer Roland Gumpert and the Chinese Aiways Group was presented to the European press and some invited guests for the first time. The AMG lounge on the pit lane was our homebase for all activities on this exciting weekend in typically changeable Eifel weather.

Press Conference of AIWAYS and ROLAND GUMPERT

On Sunday evening Aiways manager Alexander Klose welcomed the numerous guests. During a short press conference Roland Gumpert, creator of the Nathalie, Aiways President Fu Qiang and his CTO Winter Wang took the floor and presented the vehicle as well as the alternative drive concept. In addition, the speakers gave a brief outlook on future planning.

Experience the Nathalie live

The press conference was followed by a shuttle to the "Green Hell". After the arrival there, Roland Gumperts daughter Nathalie, patron of the Nathalie, welcomed the audience. During the 12-hour press day, the invited journalists were able to get a first live impression of Roland Gumperts' new development. Shorter show drives and countless chats about the technology, speed and design of the emission-free super sports car provided plenty opportunities for this. With racing driver Gabriela Jilkova at the steering wheel, everyone had a first look at the driving dynamics of the methanol super sports car.

Summary and next steps

The exclusive presentation of the Nathalie was a great success. In addition to the commendatory words, the subsequent reporting by the trade press in particularly attracted a great deal of attention to the future-oriented project. The numerous media representatives were highly satisfied with the quality and information content of the entire event. The next big steps are trade fair appearances in 2019. The Nathalie will be live at the Geneva and Beijing motor shows next year.
