Founded by Claude Poiraud and Gérard Godfroy in 1984, French sports car manufacturer Venturi was in business for 16 years before being purchased and reinvented as an electric car company and now a Formula E team. The company's 400 GT and siblings proved a match for Porsche and Ferrari in the '90s, turning in several impressive performances, including the 1993 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 400 GT is powered by a twin-turbo V6 developed by Renault, Peugeot, and Volvo, making 402 horsepower and good for a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 181 MPH — figures on par with Ferraris of the era. A space frame chassis with fiberglass bodywork kept weight extremely low, and the 400 GT was the first road car to use carbon-ceramic brakes. The 400 GT pictured here was purchased by Hervé Poulain, a race car driver and the man behind BMW's Art Cars of the 70s and 80s. The car raced throughout the 90s before being brought back to street spec and sold. With its provenance and racing history, this is one of the marquee French sports cars on the market.
