lightweight sports car Vuhl 05
Vuhl 05 is a sleek sports-car designed and manufactured by VUHL Automotive. VUHL stands for Vehicles of ultra-lightweight and high performance. The company unveiled its first sports car at the Royal Automobile Club in London.
VUHL is owned by two brothers Guillermo and Iker Echeverria. The passion behind sports-cars encouraged them to make the sleekest road-legal sports car. The Vuhl 05 is a combination of innovation, passion, and attention to detail.
The concept behind Vuhl 05
Vuhl 05 is a road-legal sports car that is engineered with precision to give a striking performance on the track. The minute details such as the inclusion of an HD camera make this car different. The camera can record the drives on the track. So, you can easily track down the errors and improve your driving skill with the push of a button.
The company’s unique X-Vario platform is constructed from the Aluminium extrusions and Honeycomb. The extreme stiffness of the aluminum allows fine-tuning of the car's suspension. Hence, the fine-tuning of the drive according to the road and track requirements is also possible.
In addition, the 'titanium bolt pack' is available as an option. Thus, the use of titanium bolts reduces the overall weight by 4.5kg. The reduction in weight gives significant performance improvements.
