100% gorgeous, 100% Canadian
As Canadians, we should be proud that our country has the knowledge and the skills to build almost anything. However, when it comes to building cars, we haven’t got much to brag about. In a small market like ours, and with so many rules and regulations to abide by for selling passenger cars, it’s not easy.

The Pléthore LC-750 is the brainchild of Luc Chartrand, who dreamed of building his own supercar.

When a company rises with a home-grown vehicle, though, we must talk about them, encourage them, and wish them the best of luck. So today, we’re going to talk to you about HTT Technologies (www.httsupercar.com).

Fourteen years in the making
The Pléthore LC-750 is the brainchild of Luc Chartrand, who dreamed of building his own supercar and started his quest way back in 1995. At the time, he dubbed the most potent version of his car the High Tech Toy. In 2000, a company was officially born with the name Locus, and Auto123.com even visited the shop where Chartrand was busy creating the first prototype way back in 2003.

Before starting work on his own project, Chartrand specialized himself in building kit cars as well as replicas of exotic machines we know and love; he notably created a replica of the mighty Lamborghini Countach, and as I’ve heard, the final result was better finished than the Countach itself.

Today, the company is now called HTT Technologies and is led by three guys; Luc Chartrand, Carl Descoteaux and Sébastien Forest. And after 14 years of hard work, we got the opportunity to see a running prototype in the flesh. The Pléthore LC-750 is fabriqué au Québec.

LS9 engine (that’s a Corvette ZR1 supercharged V8, boys and girls)
The Pléthore, French for Plethora (synonymous with overabundance or excess), is a mid-engined coupe that sits three occupants, with the driver in the middle and slightly forward, like in the McLaren F1.

The Pléthore’s body is absolutely gorgeous; it features rippled carbon fibre bodywork that looks downright muscular from any angle. The scissor doors mimic those on a Lamborghini Murcielago, while its wide butt gets quad circular taillights but no rear window.
