A few days ago we brought you a story of a Sri Lankan supercar called the Vega EVX. Another unlikely country has added its name to the supercar-producer list, Canada. The Felino CB7R is the country’s first ultra-high-performance model.
The supercar automaker from Quebec unveiled the CB7R this week, which its press material says is “targeting an experienced clientele of sports driving enthusiasts” and aims to compete “with major international manufacturers in the high-end supercars segment.” Felino plans to build just 10 examples of the CB7R. The body is fashioned from lightweight materials for a dry mass of 1 135 kg balanced equally between the two axles.
Felino says its latest car was designed by a racing driver to bring an unprecedented driving experience and emotions to the owner. If you really want a more plugged-in driving experience, the company offers an optional seat molded to the driver’s body. Felino says that an even more hardcore CB7+ will be revealed later this year.
Power in the Felino CB7R is derived from a naturally aspirated a 6,2-litre that develops 391 kW and 659 N.m of torque. If that isn’t enough power for you there’s also an optional 7,0-litre V8 with 522 kW and 786 N.m. Regardless of which engine you choose the 0-100 km/h sprint time is quoted as just 2,9 seconds. The lower-powered version has a top speed of 325 km/h while the full-fat version adds 20 km/h to that.
Drive is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed transmission, of either manual or semi-automatic variety, depending on the buyer’s preference. Both versions are fitted with a brake system that uses 390 mm front discs clamped by six-piston calipers and 378 mm rear discs with four-piston calipers on the rear axle.
