For the first time ever, the Magnum MK5 will be on display on the main floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center during the 2014 SEMA Show (November 4-7) thanks to a partnership with Ohlins Suspension.
The head-turning, Canadian-built supercar debuted at the Boca Raton Concours d’Elegance last February. It houses a 250-horsepower, inline 4-cylinder engine under a carbon fibre body with easily removable front and rear panels. Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes a mere 3.2 seconds.
The street-legal Magnum MK5 is also a two-seater with carbon fibre buckets featuring 6-point harnesses, a race-inspired steering wheel, and a backup camera. There is no stereo, no climate control system, no roof, and no windshield.
Magnum Cars was founded in 1968 by Jean-Pierre St-Jacques. The company manufactured the Formula Ford car driven by Gilles Villeneuve in the 1970s.
