Hulme's lightweight street-legal supercar is now available for order.
New Zealand's Hulme's F1 open-top variant is finally starting sales this month. The supercar debuted last month at the Goodwood Festival at Speed in England and needless to say, it was a success. The company from the kiwi country engineered their car to provide an F1 experience for the street. Its performance does it justice with a Chevy-derived 700hp V8 engine and a quick sub-3.5 second 0-60mph. Thanks to a carbon fiber, titanium and Kevlar shell the weight of the car comes in at a slim 2,381lbs.
Hulme is now accepting orders for its long-awaited new F1 supercar. The supercar company out of New Zealand expects to start shipping their new models in the second-half of 2012. Hulme plans on only producing a limited number of the sports car so they can be certified as a low-volume manufacturer. This would allow them to freely sell them to most of Europe's smaller countries.
