It’s not every day you witness the birth of a new car company, today is the first time the world hears of VUHL . A new car company to launch its road legal supercar; the 05. Inauguration will be hosted at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, UK July 11- 14 2013.
VUHL (which is pronounced ‘vool’ and stands for Vehicles of Ultra-lightweight and High-performance) is designed to be the ultimate track car you can drive from home! ACS Composite based in Montreal, Canada, is proud to be VUHL main body panel manufacturer and is thrilled to be involved in the supercar. If you won’t be able to attend the festival be sure to keep your eyes open for news update as VUHL makes its debut.

VUHL – remember the name. It is that of a highly specialist vehicle manufacturer that’s about to sprint from the shadows. The company’s first product, the VUHL 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.
While VUHL has been a well preserved secret (until now), its inventory of renowned suppliers and development partners reads like an international who’s who of the performance car industry, and includes: Magna Steyr, Multimatic, Ford and more. Embodying the ultimate in automotive technology from around the world, the newcomer’s handling was optimised in the UK, while its bodies will be fabricated in Canada, and the chassis production and final assembly conducted by the advanced manufacturing concern Adman Leku in Mexico City. VUHL’s European arm is headquartered in Luxembourg.
VUHL (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.
Said Iker: “We intend VUHL products to be renowned for their effective simplicity and aesthetics guided by a purity of function. The 05 and its successors will also be notable for uncompromising build quality, rigorous attention to detail and a driving experience par excellence.”
Further details of the exciting VUHL 05 will be released very soon – see http://www.VUHL05.com for regular updates.
