The VUHL 05 is a Mexican supercar designed for both the track and the street. The VUHL 05 was recently shown off to a privileged few before its official unveiling at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The two-seater tips the scales at just about 1,500 pounds and is powered by a Ford 2.0-liter turbo EcoBoost engine good for 285 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque.
Thanks to its relatively light body, the 2.0-lier EcoBoost engine is good for a 3.7 second 0-62 mph time and a top speed of 152 mph. While the car is more or less designed to be taken out on the track, it is street-legal and features an interior lined in suede. The VUHL 05 is priced at $106,000, which is actually quite a bargain when it comes to supercars.
