How about a supercar that is lightweight, can produce an enormous 700hp and hit zero to 100 kmph in under 3 seconds?

Canada-based automaker Felino now has an upgrade of its CB7 supercar called CB7R, and it is stealing the limelight at the ongoing auto show in Toronto. This supercar is designed to provide owners the experience of a racing driver.

The base price of the Felino cB7R is 360,000 Canadian dollars. Only 10 such supercars will be manufactured, each designed to measure with the collaboration of customers in order to offer them a personalised unit that matches their tastes.

Powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 525 horsepower and 486 lb-ft of torque in its basic version, it can also be fitted with an optional more powerful mill, which develops 700 horsepower. According to the manufacturer, the single-speed sports coupe can complete the 0-100 km / h sprint in 2.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 345 kmph when equipped with the larger engine.

These powertrains are standard-fitted to a six-speed manual gearbox. Prospective buyers can opt for a sequential gearbox.

It uses a lot of carbon and is equipped with a racing steering wheel with a selector for engine start and driving mode instead of the conventional steering wheel. There are three modes available in ‘dry’, ‘wet’ and ‘crazy’ options.

The seat belt uses a six-point system, and the seat shape will be designed according to the customer's physique.

As far as the design is concerned, the long nose at the front and short deck type gives a classic impression to the car.

Felino is the name of a sports car manufacturer based in Montreal, Canada. It was founded by former Canadian racing driver Antoine Bessette.
