Super Swift and for Sale

Jock Freemantle’s super car company Hulme is now taking orders for 2 of its CanAm cars, which are priced around $64, and can reach speeds of 32kmh. Each car will be numbered and delivered with a 1/8-scale replica. Designed as a tribute to longtime McLaren driver Denny Hulme who managed to win the Can-Am championship in both 1968 and 197 the CanAm was heavily inspired by Hulme’s old M8A racer. Powered by a 6hp seven-litre Chevrolet V8 like the McLarens that Hulme raced with great success in the CanAm sports car series – the car can accelerate from zero to 1kmh in under 3.5 seconds. The Hulme project had received a great deal of interest from media and enthusiasts around the world, Freemantle said. “A Chinese magazine flew down here earlier this year and did a 1-page article about it,” he said. “There is a guy in Dubai who wants to buy one.” The idea behind the project is to build a dramatically styled car that can be driven on the road yet feel like piloting a racing car. It has the support of Hulme’s widow, Greeta.
