Locus Plethore

Woaw!! What a long wait, a Canadian supercar. The Locus Plethore is the 2nd ever Canadian supercar. Produced by the company HHT Locus Technologies in Quebec, this car was unveiled at the 2007 Montreal International Auto Show. Before creating the Plethore, Locus was well known for creating steering wheels for race cars and reconstruction chassis of Ferraris and Lamborghinis. This supercar features awesome performance. It possesses an 8.2Litre engine producing 1,300hp, mated with a super-rigid carbon-fibre frame to weigh just 1134kg, therefore making power-to-weight ratio equal to that of a Formula 1 race car. A special feature includes a centre seating for the driver. This was formerly used only by the McLaren F1. This feature actually aids the driver for optimal performance. By putting the driver in the centre, he or she is sitting where the centre of gravity is located, therefore making control easier. HHT Locus plans to handmake 400 Plethores a year. Order forms for Plethores have already been entered, therefore, production should begin soon.
