Click above to see the Hulme CanAm in high resolution

Most automakers -- especially those with limited resources -- get their first production model to market before announcing future variants. Hulme Supercars director Jock Freemantle had to mortgage his house to finance the development of his pet project, whose launch has been pushed back several times already. Now targeted to go on sale next year, the Hulme will be available in both closed-roof and open-air versions, with a Corvette Z06-sourced V8 replacing the previous BMW unit. Freemantle now says that an additional version will follow, featuring the supercharged V8 from the all-conquering Corvette ZR1. In a nimble, lightweight package, the 640-hp powerplant promises to propel the supercar to epic speeds... if it ever makes it to production.

      I'd rather have a 4cyl n/a ariel atom. These track cars are way too ridiculous. What's next, the veyron engine in a ForTwo?

      It's a Ford Indigo.

      Good luck getting this one off the ground. Cause it looks like you're going to need all the luck you can get.

      Honestly, he'd better be looking at some fine tuning of the steering ratios.

      Either buddy in the helmet is going 5-8km/h or there is some serious opposite lock to get around that high speed corner.

      Fantastic. I am a big fan of the Ultima's but this looks far better.

      Well hopefully it makes it off the ground and doesn't pull a T1. I'd rather track and own something like that DP1 (if it comes to fruition), 1000lbs, 400+hp, awd, it'll have no issues out tracking this thing... though im sure this will sound better... I'm just curious about the balance of the car.
