Vuhl 05 Roadster
The two seater roadster the “05” produced by Mexican firm Vuhl saw it’s first public light of day at last weekends Goodwood Festival of Speed. The vehicle boasts a tuned-up 2.0 Ford EcoBoost turbocharged engine pushing out 285bhp, 0-62 in 3.7 second and able to hit speeds in excess of 150mph.
This power combined with the car being made of lightweight materials means it is both road legal and perfect for the track. The “05” has double wishbone suspension at all four corners and large disk brakes all round too, for optimum driving performance, and the interior shows off its potential racetrack pedigree as features are basic, with bare carbon-fibre, aluminium and simple steering wheel and gear stick, which not only keeps the weight down but adds to the race track authenticity.
The Vuhl 05 is an homage to aerodynamics, but with this attractive looks haven’t been compromised as it is a pretty awesome looking vehicle, with a distinctive lack of windscreen allowing the wind to rip your cheeks off, and a very distinctive rear spoiler and diffuser. The price tag in the UK will be £55,000 and will be on sale from early 2014.
