SEMA 2009: Canadian Supercar Locus Plethore Rolls in to Vegas

The Locus Plethore has no trouble standing out in a crowd. In fact, we couldn’t help but be drawn towards its oversized backside, hardly noticing a bright green Lamborghini Murciélago on one side and a pristine white twin-turbo Gallardo on the other.

Built by HTT Technologies, the Plethore is a Canadian supercar and is manufactured at a facility at the S. Eustache Raceway in the province of Quebec. Debuting at the 2007 Montreal International Auto Show, the car is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 750-hp and 655 ft-lbs of torque. An optional 1,100-hp engine is also offered.

Both the chassis and the body are made entirely of carbon fiber, allowing the car to weigh just 2,400 lbs.

As for the car’s layout, it is similar in design to the McLaren F1 with a three-seat cockpit with the driver situated in the middle of the car, just ahead of two passenger seats that flank the driver’s chair on each side.

Pricing is set at just under $400,000 Canadian.

    Me encanta el Locus Plethore. Felicito a sus diseadores. Me podran informar qu marca de motor posee? Cuntas velocidades tiene la caja? Cul es la velocidad mxima? Cul es su aceleracin de 0 a 100 km/h? Si puedo, y la legislacin de Argentina me lo permite, quizs ms adelante, me decida a comprar uno. Desde ya, muchas gracias. Atentamente: Ernesto del Ro
