A new extraordinary machine is set to join our Macau lineup. The ultimate FE car, Venturi Gen1, will be on display this July in our Concept Store in Macau.
Venturi is a car company based in Monaco that designs, manufactures, and sells premium electric cars. It was founded in 1984 by two engineers Claude Poiraud and Gérard Godfroy with the goal to compete in the "GT" market. Venturi was among the first French companies that successfully built sports cars. In 2001 the company was bought by the Monegasque businessman Gildo Pallanca Pastor. The company focus shifted to electric based engines and in 2004 they released the Venturi Fétish.
In 2013 Gildo Pallanca Pastor and Leonardo DiCaprio teamed up together in order to create the Formula E racing team "Venturi Formula E Team". The team has participated in every FE competition following its creation in 2014. This season Venturi signed a 3-year deal with Formula 1 race winner Felippe Massa and resigned seven-time Macau World Cup winner Edoardo Mortara as Massa's teammate.
The Gen1 Venturi made its 2017 debut in Hong Kong Central Harbourfront Circuit. The car uses the VM200 engine. The engine was created in-house by the Venturi team. It offers one of the most high-performing systems for electric racing. It has a maximum battery power of 220 kW which is capable of making 300 bhp. The chassis is made from carbon-aluminum and is created by Dallara. For the wheels, the team decided to use bespoke 18-inch Michelin tires and Brembo active braking system.
