Project status

Nico Perrin (Founder)

I have 25 years of experience at the top level of Motorsport. My career choices were made with 424 in mind. I wanted to become one of the best engineers in my industry capable to deliver such a complex project.

I was lucky to work for world class teams and to invest time in all aspects of Motorsport engineering and innovation, from concept design, aerodynamic / mechanical design and optimisation to race engineering.

I have a passion for global innovation, sustainability and new technologies.
