Venturi has unveiled a completely new Venturi Fetish at the 2010 Paris Motor Show.
The new Fetish is based on developments undertaken for Venturi’s World Records program in Bonneville, 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 battery 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 over 300 hp (+220 kW) and torque of 380 Nm, the VM300 is one of 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.
With a total weight of just 1,225 kilos, the new Fetish can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4 seconds, and has a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph).
The new Venturi Fetish offers a real range of up to 340 km (211 miles). Thanks to its on-board charger, it can recharge using a regular electrical socket or fast charge terminals.
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.[wzslider height=”400″ lightbox=”true”]
