DS Penske has showcased a tweaked livery for the upcoming Formula E season as they go for shiny gold and black combination.
DS PENSKE is excited to unveil the Team’s new racing car livery for the Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. This season, the DS PENSKE livery takes a dramatic and eye catching step forward, reversing the chrome and black from last year to give the Team’s Gen 3 car even more on-track presence.
This is combined with an aggressive new vector shape on the sidepod encompassing the team partner DS Automobiles and driving the car forward from all angles, even when stationary. Sean Bull, DS PENSKE head of Design, comments ‘With it being a clear and dramatic evolution on last year’s design we wanted to make the lines of the car fit even better with the exciting shapes of the Gen 3 car.
Extremely proud of this design and the combination of working closely with team and DS Automobiles we believe we have improved upon perfection. Jean-Éric Vergne, two-time Formula E Champion, and Stoffel Vandoorne, 2022 Formula E World Champion will take the first laps in the new design at the traditional pre-season testing days at the Circuit Ricardo Tomo, in Valencia, Spain, from October 24 to 27th, 2023.
Jay Penske – Owner & Team Principal: “The new livery launch kicks off the start of the season and ignites everyone’s passion and desire to go out and give 110%. I think this design, like the team is a great example of how we never stop moving forward, we never settle. It would be easy to run the same livery as we did in Season 9, but that’s not our approach and never has been. The livery like the team gets better every year. I’m looking forward to a very solid, productive and competitive pre-season testing in Valencia followed by a run at the championship starting in Mexico City.”
Jean-Éric Vergne – Formula E Champion in 2018 and 2019: “Unveiling the new look of the car is always an exciting time of year for the team and I share everyone’s enthousiasm. This livery is undoubtedly more modern, more golden. Most importantly It is a checkpoint in the pre-season calendar, we are two weeks away from the official test days in Valencia, the whole team has been preparing very hard for this event and I can’t just wait to get started!”
Stoffel Vandoorne – 2022 Formula E World Champion: “I like this new livery, it looks fast and aggressive ! We head into a new season and our ultimate goal is to deliver strong performances and return to points-paying finishes. Racing at the front requires resilience, hard work and determination, I will leave no stone unturned in the chase for every millisecond and get our black and gold car back in front!”
