A Canadian supercar, eh? Believe it or not the De Macross GT1 calls Canada home and is well on its way to competing with the world’s best. Created by Jahong Hur and engineered and built by Multimatic (Headquartered in Canada), this tandem is coming out swinging.
A mid-mounted 5.4 liter supercharged V8 provides the juice, to a tune of 800 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque. Rocketing the car to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and completing the quarter mile in 11.5. To keep that amount of power in check Multimatic has incorporated Formula One technology into their suspension setup. More precisely, it uses the same Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) dampers that Multimatic has engineered for certain F1 race teams. In other words, it’s going to be pretty expensive to say the least.
Also, going into the suspension setup are hydraulic anti-roll bars, an active ride height control system, independent SLA, and aluminum control arms.
The De Macross GT1 went through its initial shakedown at the end of March and the success is detailed in the release below.
