    2020 Felino CB7R A new sports car that's based on the CB7 race car
  • It's offered with 525 hp and 486 lb-ft or can be had with an optional 7.0-liter with 700hp and 580 lb-ft
  • Both models can reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds But the 7.0-liter unlocks a top speed of 214.37 mph - 13 mph faster than the standard model
  • The engine revs to 6,600 rpm in standard form while the optional 7.0-liter revs to 7,250 rpm
  • The interior looks like a blend of race car and supercar and that center stack certainly looks familiar...
  • The overall body style resembles that of an old-school corvette
  • and the wheels look borrowed from BMW
  • But, with a 50-50 weight distribution That really doesn't seem to matter
  • You can elect to shift your own gears with a six-speed manual transmission or you can opt for a six-speed sequential if paddle shifting is more your thing
  • Pricing for the standard CB7R starts at $275,000
  • And there's no word on the cost with the optional 7.0-liter
  • But we're guessing it'll start out at $325,000

Canadian supercar manufacturer Felino has just announced a new sports car that goes by the name CB7R – a road-going version of the CB7 race car that was forgotten about just as fast as it was announced. The car is offered with a pair of engines. The standard engine is a 6.2-liter V-8 that delivers 525 horsepower and 486 pound-feet of torque, the latter of which becomes fully available at 5,200 rpm. This engine revs as high as 6,600 rpm and is able to keep the CB7R at a power-to-weight ratio of 2kg per horsepower. This model can reach 62 mph in 2.9 seconds and tops out at 201.94 mph.

The other engine in question is a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V-8 that is good for 700 horsepower at 6,700 rpm and 580 pound-feet at 5,600 rpm. This engine maxes out at 7,250 rpm and contributes to a tidy power-to-weight ratio of 1.6kg per horsepower. Oddly enough, when equipped with this engine, the CB7R makes the same 2.9-second sprint to 62 mph, however top speed on this model is limited to 214.37 mph.

With a front-mid engine configuration, the CB7R is able to remain nimble with a 50-50 weight distribution. It’s a good thing, considering Felino says that the CB7R is “targeting an experienced clientele of sports driving enthusiasts” and has a goal of competing with “major international manufacturers in the high-end supercars segment.”

We’re not sure about you, but those certainly sound like fighting words. Will the CB7R actually become a mainstay on the market, or will it disappear as quickly as the CB7 that it’s based on? Only time will tell. For now, you can check out our gallery of the CB7R in the slider above or a little further down the page.

Robert has been an auto enthusiast his entire life. He started working cars at a young age, learning the basics from his father in the home garage on the weekends. As time went on, Robert became more and more interested in cars and convinced his father to teach him how to drive when he was just 13 years old. Robert continued working on cars in his free time and learned as much as he could about engines, transmissions, and car electrical systems, something that only fed his curiosity more and eventually led him to earn a bachelors degree in automotive technology with a primary focus on engine performance and transmission rebuilding.  Read More
