The VUHL 05, in case you don’t know, is a new Mexican super car. That means – as learned by Top Gear – we should all be super nice to it, or they will burn our pictures in Mexico City. The road-legal lightweight supercar is currently in the latest phases of testing i the UK and will soon celebrate its public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. On this occasion, the company behind the car released a new teaser picture.

Based on what we can see here, the VUHL (Vool) seems to be a good-looking sports car, boasting a unique design that puts it in the same league as cars like the BAC Mono or the Ariel Atom. Technical details are yet to be revealed, but the makers of the VUHL have confirmed partnerships with Ford, and more recently Michelin, who provides the car with special high performance rubber.

Meanwhile a manufacturer in Canada is in charge of producing the body panels, and the whole thing will be assembled in Adman Leku in Mexico City. So the chassis is being developed in the UK, the power comes from an American engine – probably, the body is made in Canada, the tires come from France, and it is put together in Mexico. If they had an Asian supplier somewhere in there, you could call the VUHL a truly global product.

The VUHL is the brainchild of brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria. Cars that are the result of one man’s vision are usually pretty good. Take Pagani for example. The VUHL is made by two men. So… let’s see.
