In 2008, at the request of French filmmaker, Mathieu Kassovitz, Venturi designed this unique “Police” version, which appears in the American post-apocalyptic movie Babylon A.D. alongside Vin Diesel, Lambert Wilson and Mélanie Thierry.

Venturi Automobiles has a rich history. The year 2020 marked its twentieth anniversary under the leadership of its President, Gildo Pastor. The Monégasque company develops innovation and excellence in high-performance electric vehicles. From the first GT to the first polar exploration vehicle, Venturi has led the way in the field of electromobility.

Being a pioneer with its solar panels, Venturi Eclectic is effectively a renewable energy generation and storage plant in the form of a city car. It can also be recharged via a household power socket.
