The Dutch brothers are creating a new classic-styled coupe.
Tino and Paul Huet are back and building a new coupe styled like a classic. The brothers from Holland are known world-wide for their watches, racing helmets, leather bags and occasional dabble into automotives. We have previously seen the Triumph TR6-based HB Special roadster from the Dutch team and now we have the first sketches of their latest project, a fixed-roof HB Coupe. The currently-unnamed coupe is styled like a classic and offers modern amenities to give it an old-school yet modern feel.
The HB Coupe runs on a 306hp 3.0-liter inline-six coupled to either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Weighing in at just over 2,400lbs, they expect performance times of 0-62mph in 4.3 seconds and a 155mph top speed. An optional 204hp 2.0-liter 4-cylinder diesel engine will also be made available. It will be coupled to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The diesel should allow for a 0-62mph sprint in 5.6 seconds. No timeline has been giving out for production of the HB Coupe yet as it is still in the development phase.
Huet Brothers has confirmed that they plan on producing a performance version and racing version of their modern classic further down the road, so to speak.
