New speed record for Venturi: 549.43kph for the VBB-3

26/09/2016

At last! We have introduced the "series" Venturi Buckeye Bullet, VBB and its new episodes over the years, after a record in 2009 with a fuel cell and then in 2010 with the 100% electric Jamais Contente - Venturi wanted to push the enveloppe but got unlucky!

 

 

Indeed, in 2010 they reached 495kph with the VBB2.5, since, due to either technical problems or bad weather preventing from a smooth run at the Bonneville Speedweek, Venturi had not managed to exceed 400kph... Until today!

Perseverance paid-off with the 2016 version of the VBB3 (still developed with the Ohio State University and their dedicated team of 25 engineers), they finally reached a maximum speed of 576kph but an official record set at 549.43kph !

Now also engaged in Formula E, Venturi is everywhere!! After a buy-out in 2010 we also look forward to hearing from Voxan - a French brand of motorcycles that had been bought by the Venturi brand and the V-Group - and their Wattman electric motorcycle!
