I am always a sucker for a new concept car or new supercar style, and I am not a slave to a name brand. So while I have never heard of Hulme Supercars, this hot orange little number caught my attention as I was guiltily surfing through exotic cars online as if it were porn. This would make a fabulous exotic rental car for any fleet!
It comes from Auckland, and will be launched in true luxury car ‘please buy me now’ format, with a limited run of just 20 supercars. This is the only production road car to be named for F1 world champion Denny Hulme, and is a high-performance, mid-engine mounted roadster.
Specifications of the Hulme CanAm supercar include a 7-liter Chevrolet LS7 V8 with 600 bhp and 600Nm torque, fed through a close-ratio 6-speed CIMA manual gearbox. There will be both paddles and sequential shift options available.
Because the CanAm supercar is constructed of ultra-lightweight and luxurious carbon composite tub and bodywork over a racing style chassis, it is capable of catapulting from the 0-62 mark in 3.5 seconds with top speeds of over 200 miles per hour. Suspension and braking capacities are also race oriented.
The Hulme CanAms will be sold on a first-come-first-served basis, and built to order. For their $427,000 USD, each customer will also receive two “Air New Zealand Business Premier” (Fully flat bed) tickets to Auckland to see their baby, and a one-week luxury accommodations package as they go over the final fittings of the luxury car including road and circuit drives.
