VUHL 05 is a Simplistic Track Day Weapon

Jul 5 2013, 2:00pm CDT | by

Power comes from a Ford EcoBoost 2.0

If you happen to be a well-to-do fan of track days, there is no shortage of dedicated track day vehicles to choose from. One of the newest comes from a company called VUHL and is simply dubbed the 05. Like many track day toys, the car has no roof and is made from a combination of carbon fiber, plastic, and aluminum.

The manufacturer claims that the monocoque weighs only 172 pounds. The curb weight for the vehicle is only 1532 pounds. Power for the car comes from a 2.0-liter turbocharged Ford EcoBoost engine. The engine produces 285 hp and 310 pound feet of torque.

That power is sent to the road via a six-speed manual gearbox. The engine can propel the car from a standstill to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 152 mph. The car will cost around $84,000 and the 05 launch in the UK and North America first.
