Cooling performance: HTT Plethore LC-750 super sports car

Speed ​​is an international language, and members from almost every country are eager to challenge the time barrier. Occasionally, a country's collective will come together to develop a new echelon aimed at achieving higher performance. On land, the charm of supercars is reflected in supercars from Britain, Italy and the United States.

In Canada, enterprising men Luc Chartrand, Dr. Carl Descoteaux and Sébastien Forest gave birth to what would become the fastest production car in the country. Built largely of carbon fiber, 11 years of development work at a facility in St-Eustache, Quebec has resulted in an all-new supercar from HTT (for High Tech Toy) Technologies.

Throughout the 181 inches in overall length, the HTT Plethore LC-750 stands out from other high performance cars. Lower in height than a Lamborghini Gallardo and just slightly taller than a Tesla Roadster, the profile of the Plethore LC-750 flatters an otherwise cold road surface.

Composed entirely of carbon fiber, the streamlined front end maintains the minimalist front headlights. From the side, the most notable feature is that the scissor-opening doors are triggered by a remote control for entry. Unbeaten by the utilitarian need for door handles, the aerodynamic efficiency of the HTT Plethore LC-750 is maximized.

Side tunnels providing engine cooling with a tunnel also found on the roof over the rear engine compartment. The lightweight composite package rides on an electronically adjustable suspension system consisting of aluminum double wishbones and an anti-roll bar.

Introduced as a non-powertrain rolling model until 2010 that included a deep red appearance version at last year's Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto, HTT has made significant improvements to the mechanicals and technology as they compete for production.

Once without an engine, the HTT Plethore LC-750 presented in 2011 receives a 7-liter V8 developing 750 horsepower. The Plethore LC-750 mid-engine comes with support from Pratt and Miller (a Michigan-based engineering company renowned for preparing for American Le Mans Series Corvette Racing operations). The Pratt and Miller engine works in concert with a traditional 6-speed manual transmission.

Reminiscent of the cockpit layout inside the McLaren F1 supercar, the HTT Plethore LC-750 uses three-passenger seating with driver placement in the front-center area. HTT Technologies details that the centrally placed driver's seat is configured for balanced weight distribution.

Without being disadvantaged by left and right hand drive roads, the setup would also make the Plethore LC-750 more easily compatible with the driving world. Rolling in race-style leather seats involved in a two-tone scheme, the HTT Plethore LC-750 makes use of clever use of materials and surfaces. Air conditioning, cruise control, rear view camera and a 7-speaker audio system charm either the driver or the maximum 2 passengers guarded by the supercar's built-in roll cage.

Air conditioning, stereo functions and other features are contained in a slim panel on the driver's right side. Hands-free phone and volume buttons are also present on the spokes of the steering wheel.

With a luminescent personality show to melt cold Canadian winter ice, the performance of the HTT Plethore LC-750 will add some serious heat to the supercar arena. Spinning 19-inch front and 20-inch rear aluminum wheels with Nitto INVO tires, the Plethore LC-750 goes from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 2.8 seconds.

Weighing less than a Kia Forte or its main rival McLaren Mp4-12C at 2,750 pounds, the HTT Technologies supercar should easily reach a top speed of over 200 miles per hour. Although the exact speed is not officially established, recent predictions have actually placed the HTT Plethore LC-750's maximum potential at just under 240 miles per hour.

No matter how fast the Canadian-built supercar gets, the gigantic AP Racing Ventilated Disc Brakes with aluminum-alloy calipers will slow or even stop the Plethore LC-750 triumphantly.

With its styling and performance, the HTT Plethore LC-750 fought to earn an essential element to an exotic supercar reign. Seeking notoriety and fame, HTT Technologies took their vehicle to the airwaves of CBC television in an attempt to convince investors of the Canadian version of Dragon's Den (known as Shark Talk in the United States) for a additional funding and support.

While the auto company got a deal, the deal was delayed (it's not uncommon for Dragon's Den investors to walk away from deals after the broadcast), but a representative at the International Auto Show of Canada 2011 expressed optimism that an agreement could be formulated.

Investors on the CBC show were impressed with the automaker's financial management (not to mention the supercar itself).

As is the case with other small niche supercar companies, HTT only intends to produce a small number of vehicles in order to make their cost models work. Providing only a minimum of 6-7 vehicles per year, the price of the HTT Plethore LC-750 is $495,000 in Canadian funds. So far, 6 cars are registered as pre-sold.

As Canadians wait for the snow to dissipate with the onset of spring, the HTT Plethore LC-750 would become a stunning attraction against the natural beauty of nature.
