Venturi Grand Prix


· Venturi mideninge car with Renault V6
· Based on the Venturi Fétish street car
· GM announces new V12 engine

A NEW AGGRESSIVE designed sports racing car is introduced at the Paris Motor Show. The all-French Venturi Grand Prix one-seater sports car; ready for Gentlemen Racing, as the French say.

With the same aluminium chassis as the manufacturers coming street sports car, the Fétish, the Venturi Grand Prix uses a French engine – the most powerful currently available – in the form of a modified version of the new Renault Sport 3.0-litre V6 which will equip the Clio V6 II.

With a weight of only 850 kg for 310 HP, hydropneumatic suspension, carbon brakes and a ground-effect floor pan, we are expecting a genuine modern racing car with the balance, precision and efficacy of a single-seater.

The Fétish street sports car shares the aliminium chassis with the Venturi Grand Prix, but poweris planned to come from a motorcycle engine (which one is not decided yet), which makes it a super lightweight stormer. It had a special rendez vous with it´s coming friends – and the principality of Monoca (!) - during this year´s Formula 1 Grand Prix. It was in this gathering of sport that the Venturi Fetish took its first laps with the former French Formula 1 driver, Jacques Laffite at the wheel.

During these first demonstration laps, Jacques Laffite found the Concept Car “responsive, light and sporty” to drive.

Unlike the elegant Fétish street car, Grand Prix is a pure racing car with bodywork designed solely for efficiency, thanks to the work of Sacha Lakic and the many hours of wind-tunnel testing.

After being developed in total secrecy, it is now ready to run.
