Hulme CanAm

New Zealand-based supercar manufacturer Hulme has opened orders for its new Hulme CanAm, a 200+mph supercar named in honor of New Zealand racing legend and F1 World Champion, Denny Hulme.

First revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2006, the Hulme CanAm is an ultra high-performance, mid-engined roadster created for both road and track use. Entirely designed and hand-built by the Hulme Supercars technology team in New Zealand, the road-legal car features an ultra-lightweight carbon composite tub and bodywork and weighs in at less than 1000kg. Powered by a Chevrolet LS7 V8 developing 600bhp, the CanAm measures 4712mm in length, 1958mm wide, 1095mm high, and rides on a 2830mm-long wheelbase.

Twenty customer cars will be coach-built and equipped to order, with delivery commencing in the UK in the autumn of 2011 and into 2012, the 20th anniversary of Denny Hulme's death. All production cars will come with an authentication certificate and be numbered. A 1/8 scale exact replica, finished in the same livery and specification, along with a full photo dossier of the car's build, will also be supplied to the new owner.
