The FELINO corporation, led by Antoine Bessette, has been involved in motorsports for about ten years and primarily organizes corporate events, featuring advance driving classes for car manufacturers and race driver coaching for top-level racers. However, over the last four years, FELINO has concentrated its efforts on building a true Made in Quebec sports car.
After three years of research and exhaustive development, the first FELINO cB7 prototype became a reality in 2012 and was tested on race facilities in 2012 and 2013.
In 2013, FELINO built a second-generation prototype, featuring a chassis evolution, along with a mechanical and design upgrade that will be tested in the Spring of 2014.
The FELINO cB7 is a tubular frame vehicle wrapped with composite and carbon fibre elements; it weighs approximately 1 000 kg, according to the selected drive train. Therefore, the cB7 can be mounted with a 4, 6 or 8-cylinder engine, optional for the buyer.
In 2013, a 6,2 litres V-8 was installed under the bonnet of a second-generation prototype and will be tested thoroughly in the Spring of 2014.
The entry-level model of the FELINO cB7 will be available at a price under $100,000.
