Orders Open for the Hulme CanAm Supercar

Finally, the Hulme CanAm Supercar, named in honour of New Zealand racing legend and F1 World Champion, Denny Hulme, opened for orders today. The manufacturer, however, warns there will be a limited run of just 20 units, which will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

Getting straight to the point, the purchase price of the Hulme CanAm will be fixed at £295,000 (plus local taxes), the Auckland-based manufacturer says.

An order for the CanAm will be secured by a deposit of £10,000 which, as Jock Freemantle, Hulme Managing Director, explains, is fully-refundable if the option is not converted to an order.

“Deposits will be held in a Trust account,” he confirms, “pending a private viewing and driving experience of the car at or before the 2011 Goodwood Festival of Speed for those who have purchased an option to order.  Following that, if anyone does not wish to proceed, the terms on which the deposit is paid will provide a guarantee that their total deposit will be returned immediately.”

The road-legal supercar features an ultra-lightweight carbon composite tub and bodywork, and race-orientated chassis, suspension and braking.

Performance wise, the Hulme CanAm is powered by a 7-litre Chevrolet LS7 V8 developing 600bhp and 600Nm torque, mated to a six-speed CIMA manual gearbox (Paddles or Sequential shift will be optional). The supercar weighs in at less than 1,000 kg, which can be translated into a top speed of over 200 mph (322 km/h).

To purchase one of only 20 options available you can send an e-mail Jock Freemantle at [email protected] or write to Hulme Supercars Limited, P.O.Box97853, ManukauCity2241, Manukau, New Zealand.
