Quebec-based company HTT Technologies has taken the wraps off a new supercar of its own design that draws comparison with the McLaren F1, thanks to its central driving position.
The scissor-doored Plethore is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 putting out 740hp and 655lb ft of torque, linked to a six-speed manual gearbox. The car has a carbon fiber chassis and body, and weighs just 2,535 lbs – about the same as the hard-top Mazda MX-5. Independent double-wishbone suspension and 15-inch, six-piston brakes from AP Racing complete the technical package. No performance figures have been released, but the Plethore has a power-to-weight ratio of 643hp per ton.
As well as sporting a diffuser that extends beyond the rear of the car, the Plethore is 89 in. wide. That's eight inches wider than a similarly priced Lamborghini Murcielago.
HTT says the Plethore will cost 395,000 Canadian dollars ($368,000) and the company plans to build 400 cars a year.Source: Autocar
