Quebec-based HTT Technologies has launched the HTT Plethore LC-750 supercar.     The muscular and wide 2010 HTT Plethore LC-750 has upward-opening scissor doors, carbon fibre chassis and body, and central driving position that has driven comparisons with the iconic McLaren F1 car. It is eight inches wider than a Lamborghini Murcielago.

The supercar is powered by a 6.2-litre V8 engine developing 750bhp and 655lb ft of torque mated with a six-speed manual gearbox.

The 2010 HTT Plethore LC-750 that weighs just 1150 kg has a power-to-weight ratio of 643bhp-per-ton. The supercar has a double-wishbone suspension and 15-inch with six-piston brakes.

The top speed and complete performance figures will be revealed by the company later.

The interior of the HTT Plethore LC-750 supercar is as gorgeous as the exterior. The three bucket seats are covered in two-tone leather, while the dashboard gets a cowhide and carbon trim, auto123 has reported.

The 2010 HTT Plethore LC-750 supercar is 89 inches wide, largely because of its three-seat layout. The supercar measures 181 inches (4,600 mm) in length, 45 inches (1,140 mm) in height, and has a 115-inch (2,920 mm) wheelbase.

Other features of the 2010 HTT Plethore LC-750 include two backup cameras with LCD screens, and a 7-speaker stereo with 6-CD changer.

The 2010 HTT Plethore LC-750 is available on order at a price of £220,000 (395,000 Canadian dollars). The company plans to produce 400 supercars a year.

The 2010 HTT Plethore LC-750 has been in the making for nearly fourteen years now, when Luc Chatrand conceived the Plethore. The Locus company was set up in 2000.

In 2007, the company, renamed HTT Technologies, had announced that they would launch its first supercar with either 750bhp or 1,300bhp.

A supercar coming out of Canada – that in itself takes some doing, I guess! Anyway, in this time and age when electrics and hybrids are the buzzwords, it is good to see some good old fashioned muscle and speed. Once in a while. Like the Plethore.

It is interesting that there is very little real information about the car so far. I mean, it has been out there for 48 hours and the web is not packed with articles about the Plethore? That is weird indeed.

A bit of research we did turned up some interesting facts. The HTT Plethore was originally called Locus Plethore, or the Quebec Bomb, as it was developed in Quebec.
