Huet Brothers open order books for their HB Coupe Classic and Road Racer

Article by Christian A., on October 23, 2012

The order books have now been opened for the Huet Brothers’ HB Coupé. Its concept was presented last January. GT and several sports cars in the past had clearly influenced the design of this Coupé. Its overall shape seems to be a lot like the 1950s Maserati A6GSC while the nose appears to be a modern version of the one on the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa ‘Pontoon-Fender’. There are two trims available – the Coupé Classic and Coupé Road Racer.

These two are made on a built-to-order basis on a carbon monocoque chassis. They also utilize the same retro-styling but their interiors are modern and come with heated seats and a touchscreen entertainment system. Even with these luxurious features, the Coupé’s total weight is 800kg mainly due to its carbon monocoque. The Coupé Classic has a starting price of €67,800 excluding taxes. It will also be powered by a 168bhp, 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. With the Classic trim, the car is capable of accelerating from zero to 62mph in under 5.0sec. The HB is specified as a Coupé Road Racer and has a starting price of €78,500.

It is powered by a Cosworth-fettled 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. The Road Racer receives a power boost to 247bhp and comes with 19-inch modern-style alloy wheels, which are two inches larger than the Classic’s retro-style wheels. All Coupés will get an integrated roll-cage and a selection of aesthetic options valued at nearly €2,000. Furthermore, HB is developing a Coupé version that’s fully race-prepared.
