Given the state of the automotive industry, it ’s a hell of a gamble to enter the fray with an all new company and an all new car. “The VŪHL 05, is a road-legal lightweight supercar that’s been precision-engineered for the track and endowed with exhilarating performance. It will be launched at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, UK, July 11-14 and bring a breath of fresh air to the premium track-day sector.” – - VŪHL media
Not much there – right? There is very little information available and, as the image shows, almost nothing about the design of the VŪHL is accessible. Sometimes, you can extract a lot of information out of a photo, but not in this case. VŪHL looks to be a sportscar company along the same lines as Spyker. That’s all I have folks.
“VŪHL (the name is pronounced ‘vool’ and stands for ‘Vehicles of Ultra- lightweight and High-performance) is the brainchild of brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria, whose Mexican/American design agency, Etxe, penned the breath-taking 05. Their profound passion for all things automotive grew from a hands-on role in the GT and formula racing cars successfully built and campaigned over a 30-year period by their father, Guillermo Echeverria senior. The company’s blue-chip backers include private investors and the Mexican Government.” – - VŪHL media
I will keep an eye on this one as we’ll be getting more information out of VŪHL before July.
