The Vanderhall Carmel is an American, hand-built autocycle. It is hand-built in America, using an aluminium monocoque chassis shared with the company’s 2016 ‘Venice’ autocycle. Drive is sent to the front two wheels using the motive force of a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-pot from General Motors.
The aluminium-block motor pumps out 194bhp and is said to be ‘lightweight’; Vanderhall quotes a 75/25 weight distribution front to back.
That turbo four-pot is matched up to a sequential six-speed auto gearbox with paddleshifters, and Vanderhall has fitted equal-length half shafts to “create a positive on-centre steering response”. Weeeeeeee!
