2014 VUHL 05 Revealed
New kid on the automotive block, VUHL — or ‘Vehicles of Ultra High-Performance and Lightweight’ — revealed its latest addition to the sports car clan: the 05. Making its first appearance at the Royal Automobile Club in London, the car itself is being produced in Central America by the Echeverria brothers and is bringing the slick, clean, look and feel of race-car driving to the streets. Powered by a 2.0 liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine and connected to a six-speed manual transmission, the 05 takes from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and tops its speed at 152 mph. As for aesthetics, the ultra-lightweight two-seater is composed of a RTM reinforced plastic body (with an option to change to carbon-fiber, or an aerodynamic flat under-body) and is perched on 17″ front and 18″ back wheels. With plans to build only 50 units a year, VUHL is pricing the 05 at a clean $106,000.
