GLOBAL DEBUT OF VUHL 05RR AT RACE OF CHAMPIONS IN MEXICO CITY

VUHL05 RR estudio - blog1
VUHL 05RR, the latest road-legal lightweight supercar, was revealed to an exclusive audience in Mexico City for the first time. The VUHL 05RR is a upgrade from the brand’s first version, the 05. To make the 05RR the 05 was overhauled upgrading most elements giving you the ultimate driving experience for the racetrack and the road. The 05RR sees VUHL use a custom built obp Motorsport Pedal Box and a selection of fabricated aluminium parts.

 

VUHL_plantaQueretaro-64

 

Its power and torque have been increased by 115bhp and 100Nn; this coupled with the weight loss of 65kgs means that the power to weight ratio has gone up to 600bhp/ton. To help with the new power and weight loss a lightweight flywheel, race clutch and carbon wheel have been added meaning the car can now reach 60mph in just 2.7 seconds.

 

2019 Race of Champions, Foro Sol, Mexico City, Mexico.

 

The grip levels have been improved by making the powertrain position lower and making the centre of gravity 50mm lower; this combined with a limited slip differential and a track-focused suspension and steering system has given you everything you could need. An all-new high downforce setup means that more throttle can be used while cornering. The aerodynamic balance, combined with the shift in weight distribution of 4% harnesses a total of 1.8G of lateral acceleration.

The launch begins year for the brand as its dedicated 05 ROC Edition cars take to the super stages of the Race of Champions event at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in its hometown of Mexico City.

Iker Echeverria, VUHL Technical Director, said: “The VUHL 05RR is here. We have been listening to feedback and quietly developing and evolving our offering. The result is truly remarkable, a car that is devoid of restraint and an improvement in almost every area.”
“We are so proud to unveil the VUHL 05RR, a perfect race car for the road, to an exclusive audience here in our home city of Mexico City. We look forward to showing the world what our remarkable lightweight cars are capable of”

David Coulthard Gets the Fastest Lap at ROC 2018 while using the obp Pro-Race v2 Pedal Assembly…..

Fastest lap & Championship Winning Products – www.obpltd.com2018 Race of Champions, King Fahad Stadium, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

.

The beginning of this incredible journey started when we had an objective from VUHL to design a light weight, ergonomically precise, low maintenance, rotary potentiometer DBW pedal assembly.

Utilising a fast and simple production line installation design, obp worked in collaboration with VUHL to produce a solution that is installed in all the OEM factory built 05RR Models.

.

Now after a very successful participation in ROC Riyadh early this month, the VUHL 05 set the fastest time on both races “Cup Of Nations” and “Race Of Champions” and was used for the final.

.

VUHL can proudly say they were the fastest and most reliable car among all others and it is the result of using the best components in the VUHL 05 ROC Edition. VUHL_plantaQueretaro-64

They were complimented several times on the car´s handling and driving precision!

.

We are so proud to be part of such an incredibly built vehicle and to have the obp brand being used by such talented drivers, we look forward to carrying on this relationship with such an amazing company.

Formula Drift & Championship Winning Products – www.obpltd.comwww.andrew-jennings.com

 .

Cameron Moore’s story has got to be up there with some of the most incredible achievements for 2017, starting as a young lad who used to follow formula drift to becoming a contender who smashed the 2013 & 2014 Evergreen Speedway Formula Drift series. 2015 then saw him come 5th in the Formula Drift Pro2 which gained him his Pro License, not bad for a guy that went from a spectator to a high-ranking contender in less than a decade.

 .

Follow Cameron’s Facebook page to see where his 2018 journey will take him.

https://www.facebook.com/cameron.moore.52

 .

Cameron started his drifting ambition in a Lexus SC300, at the beginning he used to take it down to the local go karting track for a couple of practise days until the day came that he saw himself fitting roll cages, doing engine swaps and making numerous of tweaks just so he could take to the main tracks. 5 strong years the Lexus held out for him until 2017 came around and his team decided he deserved an upgrade, the beast was then official unleashed.

 .

2017, The Scion FR-S was born…. It is assembled from multiple products that sponsor from around the globe have wanted to put forward, just so that they could be part of the end result that is pushing out a jaw dropping 1000hp.

To see the full specifications and build of this vehicle please visit the link below, it really is worth a read.
