VŪHL 05: first teaser with the Mexican supercar released

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 11, 2013

Back in March Vuhl Automotive announced the launch of its new road-legal lightweight supercar, the VŪHL 05. Set to make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, from 11-14 July 2013, Vuhl released today the first teaser photo with its new supercar. According to the manufacturer, the Vuhl 05 embodies the ultimate in automotive technology from around the world. As a result, handling has been optimised in the UK, while further testing and development taking place, with assistance from Michelin in the U.S. and Europe later this year.

Moreover, the car uses a carbon body which is fabricated in Canada, while the final assembly will be made in Adman Leku in Mexico City. For those who don’t know, VŪHL (pronounced ‘vool’) stands for Vehicles of Ultra High-performance and Lightweight and it is the brainchild of brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria.

VŪHL Automotive director, Iker Echeverria, said: “We are so pleased to add Michelin to our inventory of supporting companies, and look forward to the results of our testing with a variety of the brand’s renowned tyres at their facilities in Europe and the U.S later this year. We will take part in the supercar run as part of the ‘First Glance’ class at Goodwood, and look forward to appearing on the stand at the Michelin Supercar Paddock amongst many of our heroes from the world of high performance cars and motorsport.”
