New photos of the VUHL supercar
Remember when we talked about a soon-to-be lightweight supercar built by a Mexican-based company called VUHL? Well the company has recently released two new images of the supercar being tested at a secret location as well as confirming that it has entered into a technical support arrangement with Michelin. The internationally-known tyre manufacturer will support the VUHL global public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 11-14 2013.
The VUHL 05, wearing Michelin tyres, will have its bodywork manufactured in Canada with the final assembly being conducted by the Adman Leku manufacturing company in Mexico City.
According to the company the vehicle’s handling has been worked on and optimized in the United Kingdom, with more testing and development planned to take place later this year both in the United States and Europe, with the help of Michelin.
The photos reveal that the VUHL 05 is a roadster but the car is camouflages so we don’t see many details except for the roll-over bars behind the two seats. One of the images reveals a details of the front end including trapezoidal honeycomb grille as well as projector headlights without a protection glass.
The company stated that it is very pleased to add Michelin to its inventory of supporting companies, and that it looks forward to testing out a variety of the brand’s world-renowned tyres at some of their facilities in Europe and in the U.S. later this year.
VUHL – pronounced “vool” – stands for Vehicles of Ultra High-Performance and Lightweight and has been founded by Mexican brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria.
The VUHL 05 project is being backed by several blue-chip companies as well as the Mexican government and has companies as Ford, Multimatic and Michelin as suppliers. No technical details have been released as of yet, but we only have to wait for the official reveal of the car next month for those.
