VUHL 05 will appear at London Motor Show on May 5-8 and at Goodwood on June 23-26

Article by Andrew Christian, on March 10, 2016

The lightweight VUHL 05 is set to go beyond the boundaries this 2016 with the first production cars having been delivered, numerous dealers in the UK, Middle East, and Mexico, a stream of positive reviews, and a new high-tech factory along the way.

The VUHL 05 will grace the new London Motor Show at Battersea Park on May 5 to 8 for its first of many appearances this 2016. Bespoke Performance, the brand's official dealer, will represent the vehicle.

This marks VUHL's first appearance in England's capital. The popularity of the two-seater vehicle in the region is expected to be intense. An updated VUHL 05 version is slated to participate in the new Race Cars for the Road class at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 23 to 26.

The vehicle will be displayed in the supercar paddock throughout the event aside from the two times it will roll out in the hills each day. The driver is yet to be revealed. VUHL Technical Director Iker Echeverria said that it will be like "coming home" for them since the VUHL had its global premiere at the said event in 2013.

During that time, the vehicle was driven by former Sauber and current Haas F1 Team ace Esteban Gutiérrez. The VUHL 05, which had a power-to-weight ratio of 410 bhp/ton, is perfect for both the road and the racetrack. Aside from a list of prominent suppliers, over 42 percent of VUHL 05's parts came from the UK.

The unique and powerful combination of lightweight built, innovative styling, uncompromised quality, and keen details make the VUHL 05 a top choice among its rivals. VUHL Managing Director Guillermo Echeverria boasted that many customers already own a Lamborghini or Porsche but they still see a VUHL as an essential addition to their garages. In the UK, the new offering is priced from £59,995.

Press Release

THE LONDON MOTOR SHOW KICKS OFF A LANDMARK YEAR FOR BURGEONING LIGHTWEIGHT SUPERCAR MANUFACTURER VUHL

With dealers in Mexico, the Middle-East and the UK; the first customer cars delivered; an array of positive media reviews; and a new high-tech factory coming on stream; the VUHL 05 lightweight supercar is set to make great strides in 2016.

London Motor Show

Its first of many public appearances this year will be at the new London Motor Show, Battersea Park, May 5-8, where the up-market brand will be represented by its official UK dealer, Bespoke Performance (www.bespokeperformance.co.uk). This will be the VUHL’s first visit to the England capital and interest in the beautifully-constructed high-performance two-seater is expected to be notably strong.

Goodwood Festival of Speed

An uprated version of the 05 will participate in the new ‘Race Cars For The Road’ class at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 23-26), where it will be proudly displayed in the supercar paddock throughout, other than the two times a day when it will take to the hill in earnest in the hands of a yet-to-be-announced top racing driver. Said VUHL Technical Director Iker Echeverria: “This will be like coming home for us, as VUHL enjoyed its successful global launch at the Festival in 2013, where it was driven by the then Sauber now Haas F1 Team ace Esteban Gutiérrez.

Unique qualities

The ultra-striking VUHL 05 is designed for use on both road and track. Its supplier list reads like a who’s who of the global motor industry and no less than 42 percent of the parts are derived from the UK. But it is its unique combination of innovative design, supreme lightweight (it has a power-to-weight ratio of 410bhp/ton), uncompromising build quality and rigorous attention to detail that really sets it apart from its competitors. Said the company’s Managing Director Guillermo Echeverria: “Many of our customers already own, say, a Porsche or Lamborghini and see the nimbler but equally well-made VUHL as a natural garage companion.” UK prices start at £59,995.00.
