Badass Vanderhall Venice Three Wheeler Spotted!
If Morgan was less old fashioned
When you think of three wheeled cars, what comes to mind? The Morgan three wheeler and the Polaris Slingshot are probably the first ones that pops into your head. Now there is a (relatively) new kid on the three wheeler block. Founded in 2010, Vanderhall specialized in three wheeler cars for both the track and the city with their first model, the Laguna, debuting in 2012.
Five years later in 2017, Vanderhall pushed out its newest model, the Venice. Weighing only 1,375 lbs with 180bhp four cylinder engine, the Vanderhall Venice is quite a quick machine with a 4.5 second 0 to 60 time and a top speed of 140mph.
The Venice came in four different trims varying from a softer cruising base Venice all the way to the hardcore Venice Speedster R.
During my day of car spotting at the mountains, this strange three wheeler drove by and immediately peaked my interest. Luckily for me, the owner of the strange three wheeler stopped by for lunch.
As it turned out, the owner of this particular Venice was actually the owner of a local motorcycle dealer trying to give the Venice some publicity to try to attract potential buyers.
The shape of the car bears a stark resemblance to the Morgan three wheeler, with the same three wheel format as well as fuselage styled body.
While the Morgan is incredibly old fashioned, the Venice takes the Morgan philosophy and gives it a futuristic twist. Now enjoy the myriad of pictures I took of this strange, yet badass car.
