VUHL has announced their 05 sports car will be going into production in November.

According to VUHL Automotive director Guillermo Echeverria, “Our aim for Goodwood was quite specific – to accrue sufficient orders for a batch of 20 ‘Edition One’ (top specification) models and, with the serious enquiries already received from the UK, central Europe, USA and Mexico, we are well on the way to achieving that and more." He added that the first deliveries are scheduled for next spring.

As we have previously reported, the 05 is powered by a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine that develops 285 bhp (212 kW) and 420 Nm (310 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which enables the 725 kg (1,598 lbs) roadster to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds before hitting a top speed of 245 km/h (152 mph).

The company is currently accepting orders and pricing starts at £55,000 ($86,225 / €64,505).
