Article by Anita Panait, on March 12, 2013

Auto consumers now may not yet know the name “VŪHL,” but given enough time, they would. VŪHL is a highly specialist carmaker that is about to unveil its very first product, the VŪHL 05, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the United Kingdom slated on July 11-14, 2013. VŪHL 05 is a road-legal lightweight supercar precision-engineered for the track that promises superb performance. VŪHL has managed to keep its existence a secret, but it should not be underestimated.

It boasts of an inventory of renowned suppliers and development partners who are considered some of the best in the performance car industry. The carmaker’s suppliers and partners include Magna Steyr, Multimatic and Ford. VŪHL epitomizes world-class vehicle technology as its operations are situated globally. The carmaker is tasked with handling in the United Kingdom and body fabrication in Canada. Advanced manufacturing firm Adman Leku of Mexico will produce the chassis as well conduct the final assembly.

VŪHL, the European unit of which is based in Luxembourg, stands for Vehicles of Ultra- lightweight and High-performance. It was established by brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria, whose Mexican/American design agency, Etxe, designed the VŪHL 05.  The Echeverria brothers’ passion for vehicles rooted from its hands-on role in the GT and formula racing cars that were built and campaigned in over three decades by their father, Guillermo Echeverria Sr.

VŪHL’s blue-chip backers include private investors and the Mexican Government. Iker Echeverria remarked that they intend VŪHL products to be renowned for their “effective simplicity and aesthetics guided by a purity of function.” He quipped that the 05 and its successors will be noted for their “uncompromising build quality, rigorous attention to detail and a driving experience par excellence.”
