I had no idea these cars existed until seeing this film. Excellent job. I want to learn more about the brand now.
Magnifique histoire, merci.
My uncle has a Venturi, beautiful cars 😍 And here, beautiful story!
Super movie! can’t wait for next ones on the other Venturi 260 Atlantiques, 260 LM, Trophy & 400 GT and 300 turbo & bi-turbo, gentleman driver’s spirit! roots from the passion with Jean Rondeau’s workshop, Mauro Bianchi’s test drive, Jean-Pierre Beltoise’s ice race, Stephane Ratel’s trophy, Jacques Laffite’s 500 LM, Herve Poulain’s 600 LM art car, Henri Pescarolo’s 600 LM (victory at 1000km of Paris in 1994 http://www.stanislasmachoir.com/html/fiche.jsp?id=7242160&np=&lng=en&npp=150&ordre=&aff=&r=), and many others great stories around 80’s-90’s sport cars… Thanks again Petrolicious!
Long time expecting a real tribute to these French exotic sport cars and well deserved by the really talented Petrolicious guys! thanks for this super film & actions. Now waiting similar approach on the rest of the family with the transcup, 260 Atlantique, 260 LM, Trophy & 400 GT and 300 turbo and bi-turbo, plenty of movies to do with these fun cars and really enthusiast owners “Gentleman Drivers” spirit.
We can all only hope to have a son or daughter who holds us in high regards like that. I was especially impressed when he said how embarrassed he was to be able to afford such a cool car at his young age when his father would never have been able to when he was that age. Thanks very much.
One of the best films in a long time. Interesting car. Bloke talking about his car and not himself. Nice cuts between the car and commentary. As well as no beer advert filters. Excellent.
These films are some of the few that i don’t hesitate to turn on the CC. My heart fills with joy during these father-son stories, having a father who passed away at a young age, as I look forward to when I can pass on the love for cars with a son of my own . Also- that must have been one hell of a grocery store job!!
Comme je vous envie. La Venturi, c’est pour moi un rêve de gosse. J’ai grandi entre Cerizay et Cholet. J’ai vu passer les prototypes devant la maison et je me souviens très bien de l’usine MVS. J’ai eu la chance de conduire une 260 il y a quelques années et je rêve vraiment de pouvoir m’acheter cette voiture un jour. Quelle chance vous avez. Prenez en grand soin !
Tres bein ! Great car . Great story [ the son owning a car his father had a hand in ]and a pretty decent video to boot . Ahhhh … the Venturi … an underrated and much ignored gem in the annals of exotic cardom deserving much more attention that it gets . Sigh … what with their French wine … French women .. French cars ( and motorcycles ) and French culture .. damn French .. he says in in an abject fit of envy …. now where did I put that brandy new pair of recently reissued Vuarnet… Read more »
Beautiful bond between son and father 🙂
And great car – btw, it has the same engine (PRV – Peugeot/Renault/Volvo) used in the Delorean and some Volvo wagons…- but with double the power and an amazing sound!
Thanks Petrolicious for discovering these gems!
