Vuhl, a new highly specialised supercar manufacturer, will launch onto the world stage when it unveils its first production car, the Vuhl 05, at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Iker Echeverria said the Vuhl 05 and its successors will be notable for uncompromising build quality, rigorous attention to detail and a driving experience par excellence.
“We intend Vuhl products to be renowned for their effective simplicity and aesthetics guided by a purity of function.”
The 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed takes place between July 11-14.
