Vanderhall Venice

Vanderhall Motor Works is ready to unleash the Venice Roadster, an open-wheel, composite body autocycle that out-handles most sports cars and stops quicker than many superbikes. This hand-built vehicle has side-by-side seating and is motivated by a turbocharged, 1.4-liter VVTI powertrain.

Vanderhall’s patented, mono-aluminum chassis is wrapped in a composite body. Creature comforts include power steering, heated seats, and a premium sound system with Bluetooth connectivity, with other dealer-installed options on the product roadmap.
The Venice is engineered, tested, and manufactured in Provo, Utah, with the company’s proprietary tooling and processes. Its throaty four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing is tuned for weight reduction and power. That power is delivered through a 6-speed auto-manual transmission.
Each of the ponies pull just 6.875 pounds. This puts the 1375-pound Venice’s power-to-weight ratio firmly into muscle car territory as it vaults from 0 to 60 mph in under 5 seconds.
Stopping chores are handled with ABS, brake assist, and performance rotors and calipers. This system efficiently slows the Venice from 60 to 0 mph in sub-100 feet. Stable and agile by design, the Venice hugs the road at just 4.5 inches off the ground. Its low center of gravity, ideal weight distribution, and wide, sticky tires allow it to generate a high level of lateral cornering stability, perfect for winding canyon drives.

Vanderhall Motor Works seeks to fill the growing autocycle segment’s lack of exclusive, high-performance options. “The process of bringing Vanderhall vehicles to market has been exciting and rewarding,” says company founder Steve Hall. “We worked on 11 different iterations, building over 40 proof-of-concept prototypes.” This process resulted in Vanderhall’s first model, the Laguna. After the release of the Laguna, Hall recognized the demand for yet another model to add to the Vanderhall lineup, thus inspiring the design and price-point for the Venice.
After releasing the Laguna just over one year ago, Vanderhall is ready again to bring something new and innovative to the market with the Venice. With its vintage, caféracer flare, as well as its lower price point, at just $29,950, Vanderhall anticipates an explosion of interest and orders for the new roadster.
The Venice will be released in one trim level and three color options – charcoal, black, and pearl white with dealer-installed options to be released in the months following the debut. Pre-orders are already being taken, so go to to claim your spot in line and be one of the first to experience your own Vanderhall Venice.
The debut of the Venice will be at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, CA from November 18th-20th. All are invited to participate and see the new roadster in person.
