Official Vuhl 05 Supercar!

Has anyone seen this yet!? Looks awesome and seems to have the performance to match. I can't wait to see one in person and hopefully take it for a spin!

I saw this on jalopnik, it looks pretty interesting.
It's not the first contemporary Mexican sports car though. Check out the Mastretta.

I just discovered the Vuhl this morning whilst coffee/surfing the web... Very cool car indeed! Similar to the 211.

To me, it's the child of a BAC MONO and a 2-Eleven. Even has the black and white scheme of the Mono.

That being said, it looks farkin' awesome!

Will this really be street legal in the US?

$89,000 for an extremely cool looking car with super car performance. I'm kind of interested. Anybody have any more info for the car?

No interest here. Would not have a car that req'd me to wear a helmet.

The bac mono IS a formula car. Just a bespoke build and set up for the street.

The styling on the bac mono is awesome. The vuhl.... Mmmm. Not so much, kinda ok.

"I really started paying attention to cars was when they came out with the Nissan Z, the first body. Then I seen the Cherokees, the old square ones, and I was like, “Wow, that’s cool.” Then I seen the Isuzu jeeps and I seen the Wranglers."

I've been looking at the Vuhl very closely and missed the opportunity to see their facility last month but I got to see the Mastretta MXT up close and personal..even had the opportunity to drive it on the track Great car and fit and finish was surprisingly well Apparently there's a deal in the works that will have both the Mastretta and Vuhl in the US by end of year at the earliest or beginning of next year at the latest.

I must have seen that car online about 200 times when hunting for my CO Elise... I guess the market for such a car isn't very good. Anyone know the story for it?
