Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Travis Okulski, Deputy Editor at Jalopnik.com, reviews the Vuhl, a high-performance super car built in Mexico from parts sourced globally. He speaks on Bloomberg Television’s “In The Loop.”

Is my favorite website.

It is so great.

So much more serious than the gossip website that owns your company.

Moving forward, what do you think of this car?

I think it is really cool.

It is part of the phenomenon that is going on.

There are a number of cars coming another at the same sort of niche.

This one is made in mexico.

Mexico does not have a long history of making their own cars.

It looks awesome also.

It has the dumbest name of all of them.

You have the ariel atom.

You have kay tm -- ktm.

The crossbow has not been hugely successful.

As you mentioned, your favorite is the caterer him seven -- caterham seven.

It is a global car.

Even though it is made in mexico.

Everywhere has every resource to make everything.

They will get michelin tires from france.

It is a ford engine.

Everything has to come together.

There are more and more of these specialty, niche, limited edition cars coming up.

It is part of going to track day.

It is a car that will be terrible on the road.

You have to wear a helmet while you are driving on the road.

If you drive this without a helmet, you will get hit in the face with rocks.

Pretty clear.

[laughter] i also want to make the point that i am a motorcycle fanatic, but i have never been able to get the same kind of enjoyment from cars as i have been able to from motorcycles.

But ever since i got hit by a truck in may, i have been looking for a safer experience.

Ready to move to mexico?

These open wheeled racers might be another way to achieve that.

Use a safer and then you look a low these are.

No crash protection.

If you get hit by a truck, you will still have a pretty big problem.

It will also be a lot more expensive.

If you are buying this, you are not really worried about the cost and you are not really worried about the cost of replacing a part that might break.

This is not a second car.

This is a fourth or fifth car from a company.

It is relatively inexpensive compared to buying an open wheeled racer in the past.

Relatively.

You actually have to live in mexico for that one or california or florida.

What is the coolest car you are seeing out there right now?

Volvo wagon.

[laughter] i just drove the 2014 corvette.

It is amazing.
