MEXICO CITY — The Vuhl 05 supercar from Mexico has been teased again ahead of its July debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The company name is pronounced "vool" and stands for "Vehicles of Ultra-Light Weight and High-performance." The Mexican government and private investors are backers of the firm. Vuhl said the car is being tested "at a secret location."
Ford, Multimatic and, most recently, Michelin are Vuhl's development partners for the 05. The supercar will be fabricated in Canada, while chassis production and final assembly will be completed in Mexico City.
Teaser photos of the 05 show an open-air vehicle similar to the KTM X-Bow or BAC Mono. The street-legal track car has room for two seats, along with aggressive styling, black alloy wheels, exposed headlights, a carbon-fiber front splitter and a honeycomb mesh grille. It appears to have a similar midengine setup as its open-air competitors.
"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," said Vuhl Automotive Director Iker Echeverria in a statement.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place July 11-14 in Goodwood, England.
Edmunds says: Vuhl hopes its cool 05 supercar makes a splashy debut at Goodwood.
