Cool to have a 750 HP Canadian supercar. So it is a Montreal-based company?

I am wondering if that 6.2 Liter V8 is built by this company itself?

Yeah apparently it is a Montreal based company. I believe they are suggesting it is their own engine. Who is actually producing it I have no idea - maybe themselves. I imagine only a few of these cars will be produced per year or even ever.

"The car will weigh approximately 2,400 lb (1,089 kg)"...."The chassis and body is made entirely out of carbon fiber with no engine subframe"

not sure how many other options there are at that weight/power ratio. maybe this, with a new crate motor?

They generally go hand in hand - the whole "I remember watching these cars being raced when I was a kid - I had to have one"......
