Magnum MK5 - a Canadian supercar gets teased [VIDEO]

The autumn is reaching its midpoint, but this period is not the matter when we talk about highly capable automobiles better known under a term of a supercar. While this autumn will be marked with world premieres by major manufacturers at both Los Angeles and Tokyo motor shows, low volume supercar manufacturers are taking their time for unveiling of exciting models, as well.

Meet a brand new supercar project – the Magnum MK5 – by a Canadian company Magnum Cars. This well established maker is much better known in a field of racing and motorsports. Founded in 1968, they have been manufacturing Formula cars and components since then and collaborating with well known names and teams.

Now Magnum has now decided to take a step further and to enter a segment of lightweight supercars with an introduction and world premiere of the MK5. Briefly described as a track-oriented street-legal automobile, this model will feature “racecar performance and supercar build quality and styling”. Magnum has an objective to offer the car worldwide, as well.

While the official unveiling is scheduled for the 30th of October, the company has decided not to disclose too much information in their first press release. However, this may happen that further teaser images and information will be released before the date in due time. Mark the date and keep yourself updated. We will bring you all Magnum MK5 news once they appear.
