Hulme 

Information about Hulme 

Hulme, a boutique car manufacturer from New Zealand, pays tribute to one of the country’s most illustrious motorsport figures, Denny Hulme, who was the 1967 Formula One World Champion. Hulme Supercars Ltd sought to honor his legacy through their high-performance vehicles, notably the Hulme F1. Introduced in 2005, this car was designed to blend Formula One aesthetics and dynamics with road-going capabilities. It featured a potent 7.0 L LS7 V8 engine sourced from the Chevrolet Corvette C6, delivering 600 horsepower, and was celebrated for its impressive power-to-weight ratio.

Despite its ambitious beginnings and the promise of merging top-tier motorsport technology with everyday usability, Hulme Supercars faced challenges in moving from concept to production. The ambitious plans to commercialize the Hulme F1 were periodically highlighted in automotive circles but have not fully materialized into a stable presence in the global or even local automotive markets. Thus, while the brand’s inception and vision were rooted in celebrating a rich motorsport heritage, its journey has been marked by the all-too-common struggles of boutique car manufacturers trying to scale from visionary prototypes to sustainable production models.
