August, 2019 – VUHL, the road-legal lightweight supercar manufacturer, has unveiled its groundbreaking new car - the 05RR - to an exclusive audience in Pebble Beach Concours as the official start of sales for the US Market.
California was chosen as the first market in the US because of the vast motorsport culture, nearby racetracks and overall automotive passion and enthusiasm that is unique to this side of the Globe.
The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance represents the pinnacle of everything automotive, the delivery of the first 05RR in the US takes place during the weekend at PBC marking a huge milestone for VUHL.
VUHL Automotive will be revealing their US sales network starting off with California, and quickly stepping into Miami and Houston, as part of their first phase into the US market.
VUHL (the name is pronounced ‘vool’ and stands for Vehicles of Ultra High-performance and Lightweight) is the brainchild of brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverría, whose Mexican/American design company penned the breath-taking 05 and the 05RR trackday supercars. Their profound passion for all things automotive comes from a hands-on role in the GT and formula racing cars successfully built and campaigned over a 30-year period by their father, Guillermo Echeverría senior.
The VUHL 05 is a road-legal lightweight supercar. The 05’s handling has been fine-tuned in the UK, while further testing and development took place with assistance from Michelin, both in the U.S. and Europe. Production started mid-2014, with first deliveries done in 2015. 40% of the 05 sourced from UK, carbon bodies and chassis production done in-house to aerospace standards and final assembly conducted by the advanced manufacturing concern, Adman Leku in the aerospace cluster of Querétaro City.
The 05 ROC Edition has been selected to race at the world famous ‘Race Of Champions’ for a 5-year period from 2017-2021. It has obtained the fastest lap award at every of the three races that it has been part of, so far.
“We are so proud to unveil the VUHL 05RR, a perfect race car for the road, to an exclusive audience in such an amazing event. We look forward to showing what our remarkable lightweight cars are capable of in US tracks.” – Iker Echeverría, Technical Director / Co-Founder.
Guillermo Echeverria, VUHL Managing Director, said: “We look forward to introducing VUHL to a wider audience by starting with California and later in the year heading to the Eastern Coast.”
“VUHL is not only having all the performance credentials to be quick at the track but about engaging with a road-legal machine which will give you the most pure and raw driving experience only found in race cars.”
