341 mph, new world speed record for an electric vehicle (pending FIA decision).
The Venturi VBB-3 established two new FIA world speed records for an electric vehicle : 341.4 miles per hour (549.43kph)
With Roger Schroer (from the Transportation Research Center TRC, Ohio) behind the wheel, this is the 5th time in their history that Venturi reached with the Center For Automotive Research (The Ohio State University) this level of performance. In 2009 the Monaco powertrain manufacturer clinched the FIA world speed record for a fuel cell car (303mph/487kph). In 2010 the Venturi VBB-2.5 realized the FIA world speed record for an electric vehicle (307mph/495kph), and in 2014 and 2015 two new category records.
