ANNOUNCES 2020 FEATURE MARQUE
FELINO CB7R SUPERCAR NAMED HEADLINE VEHICLE
“Canada’s Supercar” The “Felino CB7R” will headline this year’s Ottawa Gatineau International Auto Show, March 19th – 22nd 2020.
The CB7R comes from the vision of Canadian champion race car driver Antoine Bessette. The vehicle is a true Supercar, and is manufactured in Montreal making it one of only two cars produced in Canada worthy of that Status. The car has an aggressive, muscular look to match its performance credentials. Its feline inspired name suggests agile performance and on the track or on the street the CB7R exceeds expectations.
With a V8 engine producing 700 horsepower, the car can reach speeds of up to 345 km/h and go from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds. The CB7R comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission and optional sequential gearbox, available for both road and track use. The aerodynamic design makes the car look like something a super hero might drive. This supercar also features carbon-fibre seats that are moulded to the driver’s body, which is the Felino way of merging man with machine, to create an intimate driving experience.
This is basically a high tech track car made for the street. The starting price comes in at an impressive $360,000 Canadian. If exclusivity is important to you the Felino CB7R delivers. Only 10 units of the limited edition FELINO cB7R will be produced.
“I’ve always been fueled by cutting-edge technologies,” stated Antoine Bessette. “Several years of research and development were required in order to create a vehicle this powerful for road use. We had to re-think each individual component to be able to provide both the features and the experience one expects of a premium high-performance sports car.”
The Felino approach involves working closely with customers to customize each vehicle.
FELINO was established in 2010 by a Bessette, as a response to two of his life’s passions—racing and technological innovations. Two prototypes, were introduced at the Montreal International Auto Show in 2014. Then a few units were produced in 2017. The company is now working on the latest version of FELINO supercars—the cB7⁺— which will be the headline vehicle at the Ottawa Gatineau International Auto Show.
Created in 2010 by businessman and Canadian race car driver and champion Antoine Bessette, FELINO is a supercar manufacturer established in the Greater Montreal area. Targeting a niche clientele of sports driving enthusiasts, the company rivals the most prestigious supercar manufacturers on the international scene.
