The Hulme CanAm is a Formula One inspired supercar based off the Hulme.F1 Champion 1967 prototype. And thankfully the styling of the production car has remained as daring and unique as the prototype.

The CanAm is the first in a proposed trio of vehicles from Hulme Supercars. The intended lineup includes the CanAm, the Spyder and the F1.

The Hulme brand of supercars was created in honor of Denny Hulme, New Zealand's only F1 World Champion. To reflect Denny's two CanAm championship wins in 1968 and 1970, the Hulme CanAm supercar is powered by a mid-mounted GM-sourced LS7 V8. This unit produces 600 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed sequential gearbox. With no electronic aids the driving experience should be just as exhilarating as the cars Hulme piloted during his career.

The chassis of the Hulme CanAm uses an advanced carbon composite construction method which is both light and strong. The body panels are formed from carbon fibre.

During the development of the Hulme CanAm the company has wisely enlisted the help of some of the top names in vehicle systems to ensure a high level of quality. A.P. Racing are designing and supplying the Brakes, Hella NZ Limited are developing the lights, Koni are designing and supplying the suspension system, and Pirelli are specifying and supplying the tires.

In 2010 Hulme Supercars are scheduled to finish development of the Hulme Spyder. This has the same chassis as the CanAm but with a similar but different front and rear wings. In addition it features a windscreen and wipers. Because of the windscreen, the central air intake will not work so the rear end is being redesigned. The Hulme Spyder and Hulme F1 models will be powered by different engines and have full ABS and all electronic aids.
