If we had a nickel for every independent sportscar project started by people we'd never heard of and that never came to fruition, well... we might actually have enough money to put one of them into production. But every once in a while we end up pleasantly surprised. And we just might be by the VŪHL 05.
This past spring we reported on the first rumblings of a new, small performance car company starting up in Mexico, called VŪHL (which stands for "Vehicles of Ultra-lightweight and High-performance). Development of the company's first product, the VŪHL 05 seems to be moving along nicely – we now have some images, specs and pricing information from the freshly minted automaker.
With Mastretta and its home-cooked MXT-R already softening the beachhead for Mexican-made sports cars, a new company called VŪHL – an acronym that stands for "Vehicles of Ultra-lightweight and High-performance" – is coming to the scene.
