Kiwi Creation Joins World’s Supercars
NZ’s first supercar, the Hulme.F1, secured a rare invitation to show at Britain’s prestigious Goodwood Festival of Speed. The annual event showcases the latest designs by big names Ferrari, Maserati and Aston Martin, as well as those of boutique car makers. Named in honour of Kiwi Formula One champ Denny Hulme, the Hulme.F1 has been developed in secrecy over the last two years. Hulme Supercar Managing Director, Jock Freemantle, explained the significance of showing at Goodwood in NZ’s Sunday Star Times. “We are getting in front of the most exclusive prestigious market in the world. Probably a very high percentage of the supercar owners of the world will be there.” Designed by Tony Parker, the Hulme.F1 has received financial backing from fashion label Zambesi, Air NZ, paint company Dupont, and former Air NZ CEO Ralph Norris.
