If you needed another reason to go to the Montreal auto show next month, other than for the proximity to a snack pack of Tim Horton's Sour Cream Glazed "Timbits" donut holes, try the 2007 Plethore by HHT Locus Technologies. Dubbed the "Quebec Bomb," much like Tim Horton's donuts, the Plethore is a hand-built, Chevrolet V8-powered supercar built entirely of carbon fiber and weighing less than 2,500 lbs. The 8.2-liter V8 produces 750 horsepower (and up to 1,300 hp, optionally) hooked to a Tremec six-speed manual. Autoblog did a bunch of calculations, and determined that in top engine tune, the Plethore's poundage per horsepower ratio is just over that of an F1 car. Sacre bleu!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Gee, being in Maine I could drive up there... pretend I'm at Geneva...

Lot's of pics at website, including, but not limited to, some rather mediocre design sketches, lots' of bondo and foam, and babes at a car show... includes fun Franglais/et Frenglish... One of my faves: "Here are our two policemen again flashing in front of the Locus." Zut alors! A mere $250,000 (Canadian) probably gets more of this than you can handle, mes naïf cretins. (Tehehe.)
