Here's the idea from Canadian racer Antoine Bessett to change that perception: the Felino cB7, a V-8 powered, carbon-fiber sports car with an unusal amount of aggression for a native of the north.

While Bessett hasn't released exact performance specs, the Felino should produce ample speed from its GM-sourced 6.2-liter V-8, tuned to 525 hp and 489 lb.-ft. of torque, linked to a six-speed gearbox. Aside from its unusal neo-hatchback shape and styling, the Felino appears designed more for track time than street duty, with unusual options like built-in race suit cooling systems.

Bessett says pre-production versions will start rolling this year, with a limited but unspecified number set for production. The company says the goal for pricing will be a starting sticker of under $100,000

Looks a little like a Morgan EvaGT.

 

Nope. Don't like the sharp angles of it.

I was just about to say that! first thing that popped in my mind was, boy that does look like a Morgan. It does looks alright, very sleek but just something about it that seems wrong but cannot put a finger on it :/

I saw this a few days ago, and I like it. The car looks like it sits very low, and the side profile is absolutely gorgeous. The back is very droopy, but very unique.

All the plants are in Ontario, I was going to list what I could remember off the top of my head, but found this complete list instead.  There was another Ford plant in Talbotville (near London) Onatrio but they closed up shop.  They use to make all the cop cars (Crown Vics) and Grand Marquis when the Mercury brand was still around.

Which is why, doing provincial duty, my wife and I drive a Corolla as it's built literally 30 mins from where we live. Being built by Canadians it's done 180,000 kilometres almost flawlessly.

 

All Ontarians should view the list and purchase accordingly.

On topic:  This thing looks really annoying to get in and out of.
