Hulme CanAm - New Zealand supercar

Jock Freemantle has revealed the consumer-ready version of his toy for the first time at the A1GP racing event in Taupo, NZ.

Hulme CanAmEventhough the Hulme looks more like an Ariel Atom or Ford’s 1996 Indigo concept, Freemantle says his bare-bones racer competes with the best from Ferrari and Lamborghini. That may be a good thing considering the Hulme has a price tag of $360,000 (about 700,000 NZ dollars). Then again, the car may be able to back up those claims. The Hulme CanAm (named after motor racing legend Denny Hulme) is powered by a 7.0-liter Chevrolet V8 engine with 600 hp and a claimed top speed of 198 mph.

The car has positive energy on its side. "I’ve been called stupid and a bloody idiot and I haven’t got a hope in hell of doing it," Freemantle says about the success of the Hulme. "I don’t answer people like that. You just have to ignore people who are negative." In the world of fast cars, we can’t argue with that.
