Expansion of the building in order to complete the pre-orders. Customer delivery of the first pre-production cB7. Beginning of the registration program for road use.
Thanks to the data collected during testing in 2014, the development of the car is almost over. The construction of a pre-production model has begun in February and will be used to finalize the cB7 so it can be commercialize in a small series.
The second generation prototype was vigorously tested at the PMG test and research center. The different tracks of the complex was the perfect place to test several aspects of the vehicle, especially its high speed performances, acceleration and braking, various suspension adjustments as well as the overall reliability of the vehicle.
The FELINO cB7 was unveiled to the media and the public at the 2014 Montreal International Auto Show. The company as reached the final phase of development and the level of pre-production.Final testing of the CB7 will be conducted during the year before starting production.
The first cB7 prototype was tested on race facilities and notably on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 2012 and 2013. A second generation of the cB7 was also built by the compagny. A bigger engine and a wider body were installed on this new prototype.
The first FELINO cB7 prototype is taking form. The FELINO team as achieved what they had envisioned for years and Antoine Bessette’s dream is becoming a reality!
