While we enjoyed our trip to Detroit, the Toronto show is our home show. Besides, Detroit really had little to offer in the way of excitement. This year at Toronto on the other hand, we get to see the Canadian built HTT Supercar. Located at the Autodrome St-Eustache, just north of Montreal, HTT Technologies’ designed and developed their supercar right beside a race track. You know this machine has had some track time!
So where do the letters HTT come from? The name is short for High Transformation Transport, but I think they should have stuck with the original version which was High Tech Toy. Let’s face it, the HTT is more or less a toy, with the driver’s seat mounted centrally like a McLaren F1 and with 2 staggered passenger seats flanking the driver. Surrounding the occupants is a carbon fiber frame and body with integral roll security cage. I don’t think I have to tell you that this is one of the most gorgeous supercars ever built.
Under that carbon skin, the HTT has the goods to match: electronically adjustable suspension with independent double wishbones, AP Racing brakes, 6 speed manual transmission and a thundering great V-8. While some exotic manufacturers try to get fancy with their powerplants, the reality is that it is hard to beat the power an reliability of a V8, not to mention the sound. In this case, a 6.2 liter V-8 provides a whopping 750 horsepower! Weighing in at 2535 lbs, that should be enough to turn the massive 345/25 ZR/20 rear tires to smoke.
The HTT Supercar can be yours for just $395,000 CDN. I won’t be buying one any time soon, but I’ll be meeting the team at the Autoshow and will be sure to get lots of photos.[nggallery id=69]
