Hulme Can Am supercar – new motor offered

Hulme Can-Am fq

Hulme Supercars director Jock Freemantle had to mortgage his house to finance the development of the Kiwi made Hulme Can Am car (read news item), and the launch date has already been pushed back several times. But Freemantle won’t be backed down, and has already announced future variants of the homegrown Can Am. The car will be offered in both closed-roof and open-air versions with a Corvette Z06-sourced V8 replacing the previous BMW unit.

Now, an additional version will follow close behind the launch of the Can Am featuring a higher-spec powerplant in the form of the supercharged LS9 V8 from the fire-breathing Corvette ZR1. In a lightweight package with nimble handling the 640-hp motor promises to return dramatic performance figures. At a rumoured price of $1.36m NZ, it is only fitting that this toy for the mega wealthy come in two available speeds, crazy-fast and stupid-fast.

Check back for more news on the progress of the Hulme Can Am.
