Kiwi Supercar to launch in 2008

BMW-engined ‘F1 car for the road’ nearing completion

Seemingly in competition with Caparo for the title of most extreme-looking road car, the carbonfibre-bodied Hulme F1 supercar is due to be launched in 2008, the year that marks the 40th anniversary of Denny Hulme – the New Zealand racer who the company is named after – winning the Can-Am championship. Designed, developed and constructed in New Zealand, the 1175kg Hulme F1 uses a mid-mounted 550bhp 5-litre BMW V8.

In a further tribute to Hulme, the company is also rumoured to be well underway with development of a ‘Can-Am’ version of the car that will use the same chassis but wear a convertible body and be fitted with an engine more suited to an American audience. The Can-Am will also be launched next year.

As well as wild looks, the F1 has a crazy price – approximately £310,000.
