Back un March, a company called VUHL Automotive announced it would be building a road-legal lightweight supercar, to be called the VUHL 05.

VUHL (pronounced 'vool') is an acronym for Vehicles of Ultra High-performance and Lightweight. It's the brainchild of brothers Iker and Guillermo Echeverria. Their design company is based in Mexico City and comes from hands-on experience in GT and formula racing, where they successfully built and campaigned racecars over a 30-year period with their father, Guillermo Echeverria Sr.

The company is backed by a number of blue-chip companies and the Mexican government. The vehicle's bodies will be fabricated in Canada, with final assembly conducted by Adman Leku in Mexico City. VUHL's partners will include Ford, Multimatic, and now Michelin has signed on as tire supplier.

Releasing new images of the car being tested in secret, VUHL Automotive has announced it will make its global public debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in England on July 11-14, 2013.
