Venturi America

Small French company Venturi is introducing a high-riding electric sports at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, called the Venturi America.

This dune riding electric buggy is equipped with the same electric motor featured on de Venturi Fetish which is developing 300 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque, and which enables the Venturi America to hit a maximum speed of 200 Km/h.

The Venturi America also has a lightweight chassis that makes use of carbon fiber, designed to suit the vehicle's high body and the exterior design bears the signature of Sacha Lakic.

At a speed of 90 Km/h the Venturi America can reach a range of 300 Km which is quite impressive.

Venturi press release :

The VENTURI AMERICA combines both the values of traditional America and those resulting from new awareness of ecological issues.

This new American dream is embodied by this new model from VENTURI : a high-riding electric sports car that one can see oneself driving, one's hair in the wind, through the fantastic scenery offered by this vast continent.

Equipped with the same motor of over 300 hp as the VENTURI FÉTISH, this new-era "buggy" is, in fact, a high-powered lightweight vehicle with a chassis specially designed to suit its particularly high body. The AMERICA is nevertheless an acceleration car that symbolizes "cool green attitude" while being a luxury technological product.

In fact, there is nothing today that is anything like this fantastic vehicle, half sports car, half buggy, but it is well worth betting that VENTURI has once again come up with a model that will enter the annals of history.

The AMERICA also marks a new milestone for VENTURI which has just launched VENTURI NORTH AMERICA in Columbus, Ohio. In parallel to its sites in MONACO and FRANCE, this new unit will enable VENTURI to pursue its technical and commercial development in the United States.

Extreme Versality

A real synthesis of two exclusive automobile worlds, the AMERICA is both an electric sports car and an all-terrain leisure vehicle. This "mix" approach ensures extreme versatility in use.

Its performance, balance and sports car road-holding, combined with its particularly high body and specific tyre mounting, ensure that it is equally at ease on steep paths as on the highway.

This electric "Buggy" offers the possibility of venturing off the beaten track while respecting the environment in terms of both noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

The America's design, by Sacha Lakic

“Design of the America, signed Sacha Lakic

Some dreams stay with us forever, and become clearer over time.

That of driving a fast, modern and silent sports car through amazing scenery is one of them.

The AMERICA was born for the great outdoors.

Just as comfortable on the secondary highway network in the USA as on narrow mountain roads in Europe, or even fast earth tracks, this car of a new kind offers unique driving pleasure comprised of precision, acceleration and gliding.

It has the Venturi ADN. This is indeed an innovative sports car, hi-tech and refined. Behind the wheel, the absence of any noise and a panoramic field of vision give an impression of total freedom.

The AMERICA is a contemporary sculpture in movement, both simple and sophisticated, and charged with emotion : the purpose of each one of its curves is to give both visual and tactile pleasure .”
