The car weighs around 1100kg, all thanks to the full carbon fibre monocoque design. It will come in two engine options. The first one is a 3.0 litre six cylinder petrol engine that generates around 306bhp with a torque of 400Nm. It is not known from where the engine will come from but it is rumoured to be a BMW engine. The other engine is a 2.0 litre four cylinder diesel engine which produces around 204bhp. Torque figures and origin of the diesel engine is unknown at this time.
The petrol engine will have a 0-100km/h timing of 4.3 seconds and a top speed of 250km/h and the diesel engine does the century sprint in 5.6 seconds. The engine will power the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. There is also a seven-speed dual clutch transmission option for the petrol engine and a six-speed fully automatic transmission for the diesel engine.
The Huet Brothers are also planning on two more versions of the HB coupe. One is a performance orientated version and the other is a racing version. The company intends to finance the HB Coupe project with a line of watches (the same way they did with the HB Special) and they are available through their website. Pricing for the car is not out yet and the company promises more details in the near future.
