Prince Albert II of Monaco and the Princess Charlene revealed the new Venturi VBB-3 world speed record vehicle on Wednesday 18th September on the Wendover airfield in Utah, USA. The Venturi VBB-3 is an electric vehicle that's rated with a horsepower output of no less than 3,000 hp. Gildo Pallanca Pastor, president of Venturi Automobiles, already has the FIA world land speed record for an electric vehicle (495 km/h). Venturi developed the VBB-3 in collaboration with the Ohio State University. 

According to its manufacturer, the VBB-3 is currently the most powerful electric vehicle ever built. They expect it to reach a top speed of around 600 km/h. This is roughly the same speed commercial planes fly at.

The Venturi VBB-3 is rated with a torque output of an incredible 2,800 Nm of torque. The VBB-3 was scheduled to undergo testing on the Bonneville Salt Flats at the beginning of this week. We'll have more details regarding the VBB-3, as soon as Venturi makes them available.
