The Magnum MK5 is a Canadian track car that was built to compete with the likes of the Ariel Atom and the BAC Mono. It is powered by a mid-mounted inline four producing 250 Hp linked to a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The Mgnum MK5 is made from carbon fiber, which means it's very light with just 545 Kg (1,200 pounds). That enables it to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 249 Km/h (150 mph).

The car already has what it takes to be a successful track car withe ventilated brake discs equipped CNC-machined aluminum hubs, front and rear adjustable push-rod suspension with two-way dampers and adjustable anti-roll bars. Wheels are 18-inch ultra-light alloys wrapped in 225/40 R18 front and 265/35 R18 high-performance, road-legal competition tires.

The Magnum MK5 can already be ordered for a tax free starting price of $139k. A yearly production run of 20 units is planned. More pictures in the gallery below.
