I've never seen it before, but I can safely say that this makes the Enzo's dsign look sensible. It's pretty cool, but it's also a monster. I guess this is the closest they could co to a street ready production car while using a F1 car as a design basis.

F1-Inspired 400-hp Supercar Designed in New Zealand Set For 2006<p><IMG SRC="http://a332.g.akamai.net/f/332/936/12h/www.edmunds.com/media/il/news/2005/0401/hulme.f1.500.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote &raquo;</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>WELLINGTON, New Zealand  The Hulme F1, an homage to New Zealand's Formula One champion driver Denny Hulme, is scheduled to hit the streets next year.<p>A local entrepreneur, Jock Freemantle, conceived the supercar idea in 2002. The Hulme F1's design-team leader is Tony Parker, associate professor and head of the Massey University's Industrial Design department, and a longtime admirer of Hulme.<p>The nose of the Hulme F1 resembles a F1 car. It is powered by a modified BMW M5 engine joined to a specially designed transaxle. The entire package is wrapped in a carbon-fiber body.<p>Production is scheduled to start in 2006 with 10 to 20 vehicles. At least 150 cars are scheduled to be built.<p>And how will the Hulme F1 perform? Like a rocket. Weighing in at around 2,645 pounds, with an engine supplying 400 horsepower, a top speed of over 190 mph is expected.<p>What this means to you? If you're a Kiwi, then fun might be your biggest export in 2006. But most likely, it's just another cool limited-production concept to drool over.<br></TD></TR></TABLE><br>

Wow, that's cool. Its styling is HOT as hell.

Styling is nice, needs more power lol.

So what is this, some sort of enzo/elisse/vector hybrid (styling-wise that is)?

Looks exactly like an Enzo with visible wheels...
