Vuhl 05 Super Lightweight Muscle Car
Are you ready for the release of the Vuhl 05? Your concept of muscle cars is about to be ripped out of the dictionary and replaced by a lightweight contender. The Vuhl O5 is a super lightweight car with a total street weight of 1575 pounds. Vuhl accomplishes this miniscule weight by using a monocque chassis that weighs only 175 pounds. It also helps the car is an open top roadster eliminating the added weight of the roof. The Vuhl is powered by a Ford EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine tuned to blast out 285 horsepower rocketing this lightweight car from 0-62 MPH is 3.7 seconds and sending it screaming down the road at a top speed of 150 MPH.
This cool looking sports car is debuting July 11 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK. You can order a Vuhl 05 for $84,000, which may sound high for 1575 pounds of car, but not for a sports car that competes with the best in the world.
