Dakar Rally News: DS Penske Unveils Unique Monaco Livery for Formula E

    Heading into the highly anticipated Monaco round of the Formula E championship, DS Penske has unveiled a special livery for its DS E-TENSE FE23 cars. With the team’s headquarters located not far from the Principality, this event holds significant importance for the Franco-American outfit.

    The two DS E-TENSE FE23s will be adorned in a deep black color scheme accented by gold logos, earning them the fitting title of ‘Grand Gala’ for the weekend. Inspired by the elegant attire worn at Monegasque parties, this unique design pays tribute to both the luxurious atmosphere of the Principality and the storied history of motorsport in this iconic location.

    “For this special and unique round, we have designed cars that are just as unique,” said Eugenio Franzetti, Director of DS Performance. “Inspired by the gala evenings typical of the Principality, our cars also wear their black tie and dinner jacket for this special occasion. We have not only created a special livery for our cars, but also overalls and helmets inspired by this concept.”

    The team’s drivers, Jean-Éric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorne, will also be traveling to the race in a DS 7 E-TENSE 4×4 360 featuring the same distinctive design. Furthermore, a limited-edition poster commemorating this unique moment will be available for collectors through the website.

    Vergne, who recently became the driver with the most points (1,047) in the Formula E championship since his arrival in 2014, is eager to add a Monaco victory to his impressive resume. The Frenchman secured a win in the Principality in 2019, a year in which he also clinched the drivers’ title.

    With the potential shown by the DS Penske cars in practice at the recent Misano double-header, the team is hopeful that the stars will align for them on the streets of Monaco. As the drivers take to the grid in their special gala-inspired attire, the stage is set for a truly memorable Formula E event in the heart of the Côte d’Azur.
