Magnum MK5: The Hottest Sports Car Ever Built in Montreal

Magnum MK5: The Hottest Sports Car Ever Built in Montreal
Judge

The Magnum MK5 (Mark 5) was designed by Bruno Saint Jacques in Montreal (South Shore specifically). His father has been building cars since 1968 (including work for famous Quebec racer Gille Villeneuve), so he learned from the best.

The Magnum MK5 specs are incredible. It’s a race car made for the road.

  • The car weighs 1,200 pounds
  • It has 250 horsepower
  • It will go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds
  • Almost 2 Gs of cornering forces on a racetrack

There’s no standard windshield although there’s a removable windshield that is an option. Without a windshield, given that the car is so low, a helmet is recommended.

The two-passenger car will make any driver feel like a rockstar as they are surrounded by onlookers wondering what kind of car it is. On the highway, it’s like driving a Formula One race car.

The cost of the car isn’t too bad relatively speaking. The current price is in the $150,00-$200,000 range.
