Vanderhall Motor Works’ Laguna three-wheeler roadster is certainly an appealing vehicle that many motorists would want to own. However, this three-wheeler autocycle is not so affordable as you need at least $49,950 to own one. Higher versions – the Laguna Sport Premium and the Laguna Bespoke Motoring Experience – cost more.

Vanderhall’s fans could now rejoice as the company is introducing a new entry level three-wheeler roadster that costs nearly half the price of the Laguna – the new Vanderhall Venice. Still underpinned by the company’s patented, mono-aluminum chassis, the new Vanderhall Venice is available at $29,950. Both models look similar to each other, although there are some differences in terms of styling. In addition, both the Laguna and the Venice offers side-by-side seating.

As to why the Venice is much less expensive than the Laguna, the answer could be found on the body of these models. The Vanderhall Venice makes use of hand-crafted ABS composite panels, while the Laguna employs hand-laid carbon fiber. Thanks to these ABS composite panels and the mono-aluminum chassis, the Venice three-wheeler roadster boasts of a low dry weight of just 1,375 lbs (623 kg). In terms of dimensions, the Venice has a length of 145.2 inches, width of 68.9 inches, height of 48 inches front track of 58.8 inches and a wheelbase of 100.4 inches.

Underneath these composite panels is a powerful turbocharged 1.4-liter VVTI gasoline engine – sourced from General Motors – delivering around 200 hp of output. This amount of power is sent to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission and allows the Venice auto-cycle to sprint from zero to 60 mph (96 kph) in less than five seconds and reach a top speed of around 130 mph (210 km/h). Moreover, the new Vanderhall Venice also boasts of considerable stopping power, courtesy of ABS and brake assist, as well as performance rotors and calipers – all allowing the three-wheeler autocycle to decelerate from 60 mph to standstill in around 100 feet.

Exterior elements include black grills, black headlights (LED), black V-Tex and 18-inch wheels with black calipers as well as LED turn signals and brake light. Customers could choose from three body colors -- Metallic Black, Pearl White and Metallic Gray. Inside, its two occupants would surely enjoy the ride thanks to heated seats (premium, hand-stitched V-Tex synthetic seats) and a premium sound system with Bluetooth connectivity. The driver is treated to power steering with a wooden steering wheel. The new Vanderhall Venice is available only in one trim level. Customers may further personalize their Venice through dealer-installed options, which would be released soon.

To pre-order, interested buyers just need to proceed to Vanderhall’s web site and fill out the order form. Well, there is reservation fee of $250 for those who want a piece of this road wonder.
