Hulme CEO Jock Freemantle and designer Tony Parker in the pre-production Hulme CanAm, on its first test day at Pukekohe race circuit in NZ on January 14.
The name Hulme holds a special respect in New Zealand, partly because Denny Hulme won a World F1 title in 1967 and two CanAm (the nearest any major international racing series ever got to “anything goes”) titles, and partly for the Rambo-esque, Victoria Cross-winning exploits of Denny's father Clive during WWII. The Hulme Supercar which honours his name was announced in 2005, and recently former F1 driver Chris Amon did a demo lap of a pre-production CanAm Hulme at the NZ round of A1GP. The open top road legal CanAm weighs less than 1000kg and produces 600bhp and will go into limited production in 2010 for an expected GBP295,000 there's a coupe version coming too.
