1993 VENTURI 400 TROPHY UPGRADED
A rare car which sports an excellent reputation…
The Venturi 400 Trophy is a very rare French car. Only 73 of them were built, between 1992 and 1994.
With over 400 horsepower under the bonnet and a chassis designed by the engineer who also designed and developed the chassis of the Courages of Le Mans 24 Hours fame, the Venturi 400 Trophy has a fine pedigree.
As proof, the Venturi Trophy races which the car was built for found great favour with the Gentlemen Drivers.
The Venturi 400 Trophy’s fine balance, excellent road-holding properties and the power delivered by its 3-litre PRV turbo-compressor engine have always impressed those who drove it. The car quickly acquired an excellent reputation. Today, its intrinsic qualities still endear it to the lucky drivers who get a chance to drive it on a race-circuit.
The 400 Trophy No. 65
The Venturi 400 Trophy offered for sale is the 65th 400 Trophy produced by the factory. It is therefore part of the last series of the 400 Trophy produced in 1993.
