This car is of Mexican origin, and its body is made by the Montreal company ACS.
Its designers are brothers Guillermo and Iker Echeverria Jr., son of Guillermo Sr. former professional racing driver.
Their car is called VUHL for Vehicles of Ultra-High Performance and Lightweight, while "05" is the reference number that was their father in racing.
By the way, the car weighs only 725 kg (1600 lb) thanks to:
its tubular aluminum frame;
strengthens its plastic body;
a generous use of carbon fiber;
On the inside, the seats are carbon fiber, and the whole interior is designed to the test water.
The roadster is powered by a four-cylinder turbo EcoBoost 2.0-liter, provided by Ford. It develops an output of 285 horses for a couple of 310 lb-ft.
A six-speed manual transmission is responsible to lead this force to the rear wheels.
It goes from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds, while its top speed is 245 km / h.
Homeless, the VUHL suggests a KTM X-Bow.
We hope to produce annually about fifty units of VUHL 05, which would be sold at a price of about $ 90,000 commencing next year.
