“She was born at 4:30 a.m., in the night from Friday to Saturday,” confides Anthony Weck, the director of the Sbarro school, looking a little tired, like after giving birth, but with a real sense of pride, conferred by the quality of the work carried out by its sixteen interns.

It was a race against time. Ternario, the last in-house prototype, had to be completed this Saturday, June 22. No way to go back. “Families came from everywhere. There are even people from Marseille,” adds Ghislain Montavon, the director of the University of Technology of Belfort Montbéliard (UTBM) which hosts the famous school, born in Lausanne in 1992 before crossing the border to settle in Pontarlier. then a transfer to Montbéliard.

In three steps, three movements

An adventure in three stages, three movements. It is precisely under the symbolism of the number 3 that this prototype was envisaged. As a nod, too, to the three campuses (Belfort, Sevenans and Montbéliard) which make up the UTBM unit. To extend the metaphor, the machine was designed with three seats. Even the rims have been worked on this theme, with the design of new triangle-shaped flanges. Aesthetically, the lines are fluid, reminiscent of the curves of a racing car from a futuristic film.

Since it is a question of the future, to be in tune with the times and the era of ecological transition, this Ternario switches to the world of electric, with its Tesla engine, powered by batteries from Volkswagen ID, the all developing a power of “390 to 400 HP for a weight of 1,400 kg”, explains Anthony Weck. “This is the second time that we have produced an electric car after the Dilemma which was presented in 2019 at Matignon,” further underlines François Jouffroy, the communications director of UTBM.

A school of wizards

This Saturday, in the Axone parking lot, the parents of future graduates had the joy of discovering, in preview, the “beast”. A prototype which, due to its technology, should be exhibited at various shows and not only those dedicated to the world of four wheels. Because, like Harry Potter’s Hogwarts, this school of wizards (of automobiles) also knows how to train men and women who will be able to apply the knowledge stored in terms of mechanics and design, in other areas. There is no shortage of examples, such as Marc-Olivier Rinaldi or Émeric Paraud, today involved in the design of luxury watches. From the Sbarro crucible, modern-day alchemists spring forth.
