Default oh Canada... Felino cB7

Quote:
The Quebec built Felino cB7 supercar prototype made its official debut today at the 2014 Montreal Auto Show. Wait. What's that you say? It's the car that you didn't even know existed, but you'd likely sell your soul for. The cB7 looks like an evil step-child of the Batmobile... except we think its badass stance is even more sinister than the famed movie car. Even the details of its running gear are veiled in secrecy tighter than that of Bruce Wayne's true identity.

The cB7 has been in development for the past three years and is the culmination of a ton of R&D by its creator Antoine Bessette. Bessette is the CEO of Felino and a native Quebecois racecar driver. As much as we'd like to flood you with more information on what is shaping up to be Canada's best homegrown supercar to date, we can't. We can only speculate and can't really fact-icate much of it for now.

What we do know from its previous spy video of it rocking donuts on the streets of Montreal is that the Felino is rear wheel drive and sounds like it's rocking a turbo 4 cylinder of some sort under its shapely hood. With its estimated weight coming in at under 1,000 kilograms (or 2,200 lbs), we're sure that Bessette picked the right powerplant to match.

There are rumours that the cB7 will be rocking a 500+ hp V8 in final form, but the spy video shot footage of it in action sure doesn't sound much like a V8. We're okay with that - hello, Lotus power-to-weight ratio. Bessette says that that the Felino will ship with a 6-speed manual transmission and will sport a near 50/50 weight distribution.

I hate sports cars with that kind of proportion (no trunk). That, to me, is the definition of a penis extension, since those style cars look just like one.

Anything with a really bulbous cockpit that has no hint of a trunk line, elongated hood, and bulbous front end does. The viper is about the extent I can stand penis extension style cars, and even then it's pushing it. (Yes, the daytona coupe does nothing for me).

That is precisely what I think of every time I see a car like this. If only there was a gif I could have found that showed it getting smashed.

I predict it'll be entirely unoffensive and mildly adequate.

Are those headlights just Ferrari 458 headlights turned sideways?

Nope. Ferrari's headlights are slightly different and look to have a substantially higher build quality.
