Mexican supercar manufacturer Vuhl Automotive has entered into a technical partnership with Michelin for its Vuhl 05 road-legal, lightweight supercar.
"We are so pleased to add Michelin to our inventory of supporting companies, and look forward to the results of our testing with a variety of the brand's renowned tires at its facilities in Europe and the US later this year," said Vuhl automotive director Iker Echeverria.
For its debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, the Vuhl 05 will be equipped with Michelin tires. According to the carmaker, further testing and development of the Vuhl 05 will take place in the US and Europe with assistance from Michelin later this year.
"Backed by a number of blue-chip companies and the Mexican government, and with an inventory of renowned suppliers and development partners that include Ford, Multimatic and now Michelin, the Vuhl 05 has been precision-engineered for the track and endowed with exhilarating performance for both the road and the circuit," the company said in a statement.
