Vühl 05 supercar to be unveiled at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed

New niche car company Vühl has released two more teaser images of its '05' supercar, ahead of its launch at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The manufacturer states that that the 05 is a road-legal lightweight supercar, "endowed with exhilarating performance".

Vühl, which is pronounced "vool" and stands for "Vehicles of Ultra-lightweight and High-performance", has a variety of development partners and suppliers that includes Magna Steyr, Multimatic and Ford.

The 05's body fabrication is carried out in Canada, the chassis production and final assembly is conducted in Mexico City. Handling calibration and tuning has been carried out in the UK.

Brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria set up Vühl, backed by money from private investors and the Mexican government. The Echeverria's own design agency, Exte, is responsible for the 05's styling.

The brothers' father, Guillermo Echeverria senior, is stated to have built and campaigned GT and formula racing cars over a 30-year period. During this time the brothers took a hands-on role and developed their passion for all things automotive.

Iker said “We intend Vühl products to be renowned for their effective simplicity and aesthetics guided by a purity of function. The 05 and its successors will also be notable for uncompromising build quality, rigorous attention to detail and a driving experience par excellence.”
