Huet Brothers now taking orders for HB Coupe, Road Racer
Since the initial announcement back in February, Huet Brothers made some changes to the HB Coupe. In place of the 3.0-liter inline-six previously planned, the cars will use a 170-horsepower, 2.0-liter inline-four to propel them from 0-62 miles per hour in under five seconds. Pricing is about where you'd expect a low-production, high-performance coupe, with stickers starting at €67,800 (or about $87,400 USD). Those looking for a bit more power can also opt for the more powerful Cosworth version of the engine that ups the output of the 1,763-pound car to 255 hp, drops the 0-62 mph time to under four seconds and increases the price to €78,500 (just over $101,000 USD).
These prices apply to both the HB Coupe and HB Coupe Road Racer with the main differences between the two being styling and driving dynamics. Both models will feature a six-speed manual gearbox, limited slip differential and rear-wheel drive. Buyers looking for a truly unique car for the track can also opt for the fully customizable HB Coupe Race.
Only 40 of these HB Coupes are being produced in 2014, and the company is also looking into availability of the cars in the U.S. and Canada. There is already a waiting list for customers in North America, but Huet Brothers is unsure if it can deliver its cars here as of this writing.
