At the Mondial de l’Automobile 2010 in Paris, Venturi is presenting a completely new Venturi Fetish, directly based on developments undertaken for Venturi’s World Records program in Bonneville, USA (2009-2012) with the Venturi “JAMAIS CONTENTE”, the fastest electric vehicle in the world.
Rear spoiler, black headlight trims, “Bonneville” colors and finishes recalling the decoration of the Venturi “Jamais Contente”, the new Venturi Fetish does not, however, content itself with mere cosmetic retouching : a new motor, powerful new electronics, a new under-carriage, new batterie system, new design for the exterior, a new interior… In fact, all of its components have been reviewed to make this technological marvel a vehicle of true excellence.
With an output of over 300 HP for total weight of 1,225 kilos, 200 km/h, and 0-100 km/h in less than 4 secs, the Venturi Fetish has become a “muscle car”, armed and ready for battle : above all, it is more than ever before the world’s sportiest and most highly perfected example of an electric car.
Finally, it sees itself as a rarity, built of very high-tech materials : the Fetish is to be assembled by hand and made to order in our workshops in Monaco.
VM300 : A NEW GENERATION OF ELECTRIC MOTORS
With over 300 hp (+220 kW) and torque of 380 Nm, the VM300 is the most advanced electric motor ever designed for a car.
To get the very best out of such a motor, a new 54 kWh battery pack has been developed (LIV-10 Lithium Ion Polymer batteries) whose electronics (Battery Management System) have been entrusted to VENTEC, the leader in the field.
Venturi Fetish offers a real range of up to 340 km. Thanks to its on-board charger, it can recharge using a regular electrical socket or fast charge terminals (see Specs).
A RACING CAR CHASSIS
The Venturi Fetish’s architecture is that of a racing car with a motor ideally mounted in a central position to the rear, backed by a carbon monocoque chassis.
The first chassis specifically designed to house a large volume of batteries, the carbon monocoque developed by Venturi provides an exceptional protection cell for its occupants ; it is completed by two deformable cells positioned at the front and rear of the vehicle. This concept guarantees the security of the battery in the event of an accident and provides a level of safety never before achieved in an electric vehicle.
A SPORTS CAR’S PERFORMANCE
Thanks to the 300 hp of its motor combined with a maximized weight of 1,225 kilos, a brand new undercarriage and very large tires, the Venturi Fetish behaves like a sports car with exemplary road-holding and traction.
Leaping from 0 to 100km/hr in less than 4 seconds, the Venturi Fetish is a true acceleration car.
Furthermore, the Venturi Fetish offers a range of up to 340 km.
A “HANDMADE” VEHICLE
The Venturi Fetish is made by hand and to order in our workshops in Monaco.
The production is limited, but not the program of customization, our Designer Sacha Lakic being at the arrangement of every customer to assist him in his most exclusive desires.
Special attention has been paid to the vehicle’s manufacturing quality, and particularly to the interior, with a dashboard featuring high-tech equipment, but also noble materials such as leather or carbon fiber.
Benefitting from on-going technological evolution, the Venturi Fetish does not aim to be a mass-produced vehicle.
Made by hand and to order in the Principality of Monaco, it is reserved for an exclusive and avant-garde clientele : its production is limited to 10 cars per year.
The sales price of the Venturi Fetish is 300,000 € + VAT ; its completion time is currently 12 months.
With a 2-year guarantee, the Fetish benefits from assistance enabling our technicians to perform a tele-diagnosis by means of a simple WiFi or GPRS connection.
