Mexico to Make VUHL 05 Sportscar

Mexican sportscar teased ahead of Goodwood debut.

There are plenty of automakers building cars in Mexico, but they’re all foreign companies manufacturing locally for Latin and North American consumption. Actual examples of Mexican auto marques are few and far between, with Mastretta (maker of the MXT) and VAM (which built and rebranded mostly AMCs decades ago) standing as the most notable examples. But a new initiative is set to put Mexico on the map. Teased in this solitary rendering, the VUHL 05 is set to debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.

The odd name is reportedly pronounced "vool" and is a Spanish acronym standing for "vehicles of ultra light weight and high performance". We don’t have much to go on, but given the ties held by the Echeverria brothers behind the project, we’re looking at development to be carried out in the UK, bodies to be produced (likely by Magna) in Canada, final production in Mexico and possible Ford power. (Included for illustrative purposes are pictures of the aforementioned Mexico-built Mastretta MXT of Top Gear infamy.)
