VUHL 05 seems to be a strange name for a sport car even its acronym which is ‘Vehicles of Ultra-lightweight and High Performance’ does not imply that it is a sport car. However, it is definitely a sport car. The sport car is put on public test on September 5 during Brighton Speed Trials event.
VUHL 05 is made from full carbon fibre bodywork, aluminium chassis, a 285-hp turbocharged Ford EcoBoost engine as well as it is weighed at just over 1500 pounds (695kg). The 05 is able to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, which makes it qualified as a sport car. It was designed and assembled in Mexico but the body is manufactured in Canada and about 40% of its parts coming from United Kingdom.
The first VUHL 05 is delivered to an arch Mexican enthusiast followed by sales in United Kingdom this month. There are also orders from Middle East which is expected to be shipped out over later this year. However, it seems that United States sales period would have to wait for a little while. The sport car is priced at £59,995 ($94,125) for early birds. It is considered to be in the same level as 2015 Porsche 911 Carrera GTS due to its 0-60mph timing and it’s pricing.
