Can the world create once more a car that evokes every sense to its max. Is that possible in an age where cars have evolved with so much tech under the bonnet. Meet André Hanjoul, CEO and Founder of Edran Cars. Founded in the Belgian Municipality of Leopoldsburg in 1984 André may just possibly be the designer of the last true analogue supercar.
At an early age André has been dreaming of great. André is a visionary from a cultivated background, who combines the artistic sensitivities he has inherited from his parents with his own of engineering and is always in pursuit of technical perfection. André has evolved with motoring history, seen his hero’s and inspirations such as Juan Maguel Fangio and Aryton Senna challenge the world. Drivers with deep feeling and emotion for amazing built machines. Machines built from the minds of legendary figures such as Enzo Ferrari.
As André matured through his teen years with ever increasing dreams, André put his mind into his first creations. Designing and building 1/10th scale dream machines mostly from wood. His passion grew into goals. Legendary cars such as the E-Type, Ford GT40 and Ferrari P3/4 were hitting the sweet spot in André' s heart. His goals evolved to a stage of hitting a full chassis as he set to designing and building his own sportcars.
Having a conversation with André is a moment to cherish. A confident and personable man, with an endless and fascinating dialogue. Andre’ notes that this is not an exercise of speed. Not a figures contest. This is about designing and building the ultimate driver’s car. Resetting history if you will. There are no excuses, no saying he wind tunnel made this shape.
Building a car in today’s world has its challenges. Cars are built to adhere to so many regulations and restrictions. That brick wall has been scaled. André’s free thinking approach to create a car that draws back a world of glamour and legend was set. A car creatively designed on a period of cars that were built with the power to make every driver feel like a legendary figure. What’s more nobody else is doing this.
Andre’ has put his passion, soul and heart into his new project “Enigma”. An element missing from so many mass produced cars of today’s world. Ever since the advent of the idea of the Enigma, André feels this car so well. Designed to evoke every sense, the Enigma as the name suggests, will evoke mystery to so many younger generation today and excite those that remember analogue driving. It is designed to enhance a feel for every mechanical element. An analogue investment that you are driving, not it’s driving you. You are connected.
This is by no means a retro build, and nor should you think of it that way. Every principle in the designing of the Enigma is present in today’s world of motoring. In true Edran style, it combines glamour, elegance and the class of a great era. Offering a two door, two seater cabin that respects the company’s tradition to maintain the drive of legends. It will be the best driving experience you have ever had.
The Enigma is to be powered by a normally aspirated 820bhp V8 engine, paired with a manual gearbox. It has been chosen for its great linear power and torque range and will be mid-mounted behind the driver. Most supercars of today are built with top end figures in mind but the Enigma requires finesse factored in, to allow the driver to enjoy decorating the streets as much as be able to handle those serpentine roads. The delivery of power needs concentration. It requires that the driver masters the control of great power without the need for senseless control systems.
This is once more a handcrafted car. Built to honour and celebrate legends and champions. André and Edran Cars have been an advocate for ultimate usable sportscars, offering scintillating performance in a package that you can use every day. It is one visionary’s answer to a niche market response to bring back the drive to the driver.
Are you in search of the right investment. An investment that will bring a brands 30 year automotive story to life with great looks, modern performance and the ultimate driving experience. Strategically the Edran brand has registered with 32 high demand countries, couple this with low volume building, highlights a car that will ride with greats and legends, while becoming a legend itself in the years to come.
