The centerpiece of the 2007 Montreal auto show was supposed to be the Plethore, a supercar being developed in Quebec by HHT Locus Technologies. As we reported previously, the car nicknamed "the Quebec Bomb" employs carbon fiber construction and an 8.2-liter V8 to produce a high power-to-weight ratio driving from behind a three-passenger cabin with a center-line driving position, an innovative layout employed in the record-shattering McLaren F1 supercar (and in a 1966 Ferrari 365 P prototype), but not replicated since.

Unfortunately, as is often the case with such ambitious projects, the car was far from ready to be unveiled when the auto show opened. Instead, designer Luc Chartrand and company took the wraps off a non-functioning pre-production prototype, essentially a mock-up for display purposes. Next to the prototype they displayed the 8.2-liter GM-sourced V8 that is anticipated to propel the Plethore to mind-boggling speeds, if and when it finally gets rolling.

Locus Technologies anticipates its creation will be ready for delivery in the fall, when a limited annual run of no more than 400 will each sell for $330,000 CDN. They can call it the Plethore, the Quebec Bomb or whatever they'd like... we'll call it blind ambition.

We've got 25 high-resolution images of the Plethore from the show floor. Click on any of the images below or right here.

dAmn, those are some DEEEEP dish rims. They make those old

drag tires on my old '68 look narrow by comparison. I like most

of what I see styling wise but it's not revolutionary like the 1993

McLaren F1 was when it hit the streets.

Are those next-gen. VW Beetle tail lights? :P

bout f@#kin time something good came outta Quebec...they still owe us big for giving us Celine Dion

Uh-huh. I "resent" that. Celine has more talent than most. Did you know she is the most award winning female artist?

What's wrong with Celine anyway? Oh yeah. Lol.

Quite interesting car, but seems a bit pie-in-the-sky.

Uh-huh. And big cities owe us big for forcing us to be introduced to hip-hop and rap too. I "resent" that. Celine has more talent than most. Did you know she is the most award winning female artist?

What's wrong with Celine anyway? Oh yeah. She's French Canadian, right? Lol.

Smart Stalk? You mean that multifunction lever was actually given a name?! I learnt something I had never known before.

*Ok. It was a joke regarding Mrs. Angelil. Understood*

I wasn't joking. That is what I have always hear it reffered to as. Heck I think GM has been using the same basic design since the early 80s, my 84 S-10 had one. I personally love it, functional and easy to use. Like an old pair of shoes.
