Hulme CanAm invited to hill climb at Goodwood Festival

New Zealand’s only supercar the Hulme CanAm has just been confirmed for display and a demonstration at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed event in the UK. Lord March extended a invitation to Hulme Supercars to bring its CanAm Spyder which will be one of just 55 invited supercars on display. It will also be the first Australasian designed and built supercar to be driven on the famous Goodwood hill-climb track.

The Hulme CanAm Spyder has been named in honour of Denny Hulme, New Zealand’s only Formula One World Champion and double CanAm Champion. It’s exclusive with only 20 examples to be built and is designed to give the driver an experience as close as possible, to driving a Formula One car legally on the road. Tipping the scales at just 980kg the CanAm uses high-tech carbon/titanium/kevlar composite chassis and composite body panels. It also features F1 styled down force generating aero package and push-rod suspension to provide superior road holding, handling and ride comfort.

Powering the supercar is a 521kW, Chevrolet-sourced V8 engine which produces high torque and tractability. The CanAm accelerates from 0-100km/h in less-than 3.5 seconds so expect it to make quick work of the short Goodwood hill-climb track.
