Huet Brothers Coupe Road Racer
In January 2012 HB showed picture of the HB Coupé series. Due to the overwhelming response HB continued to design and adjust to make it a feasible project. They have made some big changes; having down sized the engine from 6 to 4 cylinders, and reducing the weight by 200 kilo’s.
The result is a light weight car with the same performance but using less fuel. It is serviceable in any garage. It has modern day comforts and safety features. It can be used as a daily driver, but awards the more sportive driver. We believe it is the way to go. There will be a limited production run of 40 cars in total in 2014. Reserving a production slot is based on first come first serve.
The Huet Brother Coupe features a full carbon monocoque structure weighing only 800 KG with modern safety features and comforts. 19 inch light alloys. Power comes from a Cosworth 255 HP (Classic and Road Racer) 2.0 Litre 4 cylinder making 255 HP and is driven through a 6 speed manual gearbox to a limited slip differential. Performance 0-100 kph in under 4 seconds
Our Monocoque structure is simple. It consists of 3 parts - the chassis plate, the inner shell and the body shell. It is quite something special. It has impact zones in front and back and reinforced side impact structures. It is very strong and very light. The complete monocoque weighs less then 100 kilo’s. Contrary to general belief
carbon fibre can be fixed in case of small mishaps. It is extremely durable and the material properties are excellent for car construction. We use vacuum injection for our 29 moulds. It is completely handcrafted in house.
