Pléthore is the Latin word for abundance—and the perfect description of the HTT Pléthore: abundantly fast, abundantly luxurious, abundantly exciting to drive and to look at. And let’s make this clear from the outset: abundantly different from every other supercar. The nearest thing to an F1™ car for the road. It is common knowledge that F1™ cars represent the pinnacle of automotive performance and driving excitement. The idea behind the Pléthore was to create a perfectly balanced supercar for the track and road, leveraging Formula One™ layout and technology for a near-F1™ driving experience. The HTT Pléthore is the realization of that dream.
The first thing that separates the Pléthore from other supercars is its 3 seater layout. This arrangement allows the engine to be truly in the middle of the car, as opposed to the mid-rear or rear engine location of most other so-called “mid-engine” cars. A major step change. The result is perfect weight balance: 49.2/50.8 front/rear without the driver, 50/50 with. The Pléthore’s perfectly balanced monocoque carbon-fibre tub with integrated rollcage allows it to be driven with confidence both on the track and on the road. With equal cornering performance in left and right turns, the Pléthore truly is the closest thing to a Formula One-style single-seater driving experience.
That exquisite balance is especially important when you understand the Pléthore’s extraordinary performance capabilities. This aggressive yet elegant driving machine is powered by a supercharged 750 HP aluminum V8 which permits it to reach 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds. Power is delivered to the road through a similarly capable electronically controlled 6-speed gearbox, giving the driver the choice between a conventional shift lever and Formula One™ style paddle shifters. Top speed is an astonishing 247 MPH, thanks to a racecar-like power-to-weight ratio of more than 0.6 horsepower per kilogram.
This is the first exclusive Canadian supercar. It is a supercharged V8 7L powered 750 hp torque 813 lb·ft. The chassis and body is made entirely out of carbon fibre with no engine subframe hence the chassis is exceptionally rigid. The car will weigh approximately 1,250 kg (2,756 lb). HTT Automobile will custom build a limited lifetime production run of 99 Pléthores.

Know of it. Haven’t seen one in the flesh, likely never will.
I have seen T-Rex’s, and those appeal to me in that they actually are something that exists, have a superb power to weight ratio, and isn’t something that is unobtainable.

totally true and the t-rex’s are also powered by a kawasaki engine (my favourite motorbike company) the main reason i thought to put this here is cause it is powered by an ls v8
