Naa, I'd rather purchase the 7 over this Mexican. With 620 bhp/tonne Caterham is clearly dominating over Vühl's 400. And Mexican's 0-100 time is 3.7 - 3.5 seconds, while 7's - under 2.8 sec. BTW, then come BAC Mono and Ariel Atom V8 and KTM X-Bow R that are even more advanced. I predict Vühl is no way a dominator right there.

And not just in performance Caterham 620R and the others are leaders. But, IMO, all they are much more beautiful. And I really doubt Vühl is anyhow more fun to drive than any another candidate.

And about the exhaust note, I don't think it might sounds thrilling, whether that's Ford EcoBoost.

And as far as I know, Vühl starts at £55,000. That's 5k more than 7, but Caterham, IMO, is a more impressive track weapon. And all those vehicles are too exotic. So, IMO, the only Vühl's advantage is the interior, but who cares about the interior affording a track toy...

...Don't know where you would get that a Bac Mono or Ariel Atom would perform better....since no times whatsoever have come from this car..

Same with the exhaust not, hu haven't herd it so you cant say its "Unexciting"

Why pay 50k for that 620R when you can have this? looks better in every way possible, way better engine, better interior, more exotic, and just going by the looks, more fun to drive.

I wanted to add this car, too, but it was just a concept at this time.

Also, I do not know if it is officially, it will reach production or not. Hope it will!

So a track-focused road-legal race car from Mexico, named Vühl. That's curious. But will it sell somewhere outside Mexico?

For 724 kilos curb weight 285 horses / 420 Nm is a very decent amount of power, but the engine is unimpressive - the exhaust note will be unexciting... Anyway, performance is claimed to be 245 kph top speed, and 3.7 sec to 100. Impressive for a car with an EcoBoost engine!

As I can see, interior is very spartan and there is a stick.. good for fun, bad for performance. But the exterior styling is really bad. This Vühl really looks like a polished soap-box. KTM or BAC Mono are much sexier than this Mexican track toy.. and both KTM and BAC perform better... But anyway, still a good first attempt to build something serious for Mexico.
