Utah, You've Actually Given The Car World Something To Talk About

Review

Meet the Venice and Laguna, a pair of autocycles from Vanderhall Motor Works.

Every now and then we come across a new car that few, if any, have heard of before. However, we’ve known about Vanderhall Motor Works and its autocycles, the Venice and Laguna, for some time and we finally had the chance to catch up with the Provo, Utah-based company at the Progressive International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach, California not long ago. Unlike, say, the Morgan Three Wheeler, Vanderhalls aren’t powered by a motorcycle engine.

Instead, under the hood lies a GM-sourced turbocharged 1.4-liter inline-four with 200 hp. The entry-level and retro cool Venice, for example, has a dry weight of 1,375 pounds, thus giving it a power-to-weight ratio in muscle car territory.

Performance? Try 0-60 mph in less than five seconds. Nice. Unfortunately we didn’t have time to take another spin, but we were still given exclusive access. Could autocycles become the next "thing?" Based on what we've experienced with these Vanderhalls, we really hoping so. Special thanks to Steve Hall and Vanderhall Motor Works for letting us film the cars.
