Vuhl 05RR: Track-focused form of original 05 is much more hardcore
Should you thought the Vuhl 05 – launched only days ago – was hardcore, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Here’s the even faster and much more stripped-lower 05RR version.
The Mexican-built, competition-pedigree newcomer is much more track-focused compared to original, with boosted power and reduced weight helping it achieve astonishing performance figures. The most recent Vuhl’s four-cylinder Ford Focus RS 2.3-litre turbo kicks out 385bhp – 100bhp greater than within the 05 – together with 369lb foot of torque.
In some way the producer has got the load of the already lean machine lower by 20kg to simply 675kg, producing a 2.7sec -62mph time from the standard car’s 3.5sec.
The 05RR’s top finish is 158mph, along with a more aggressive suspension set-up plus new rack-and-pinion steering further hone up handling.
United kingdom costs are ￡59,995 for that stock 05 and ￡89,995 for that 05RR.
