A new Canadian carmaker called Dubuc Super Light Car (SLC) will make its global debut at the upcoming Montreal Auto Show.

Dubuc SLC’s first and only model at this stage will be the Tomahawk two-seater sports car, priced at US$19,995 (AU$22,472) in kit-car form, and estimated at US$30,000 (AU$33,716) for the finished product.

The Tomahawk is mid-engined and can be fitted with either all-electric or petrol-power. Dubuc SLC is currently in negotiations with a Quebec-based company to supply electric motors.

Most of the suspension components come from the Chevrolet Corvette C4, and the aluminium body frame weighs just 137kg.

The body is made from recycled ultra-light polymer materials and comes pre-drilled with bolt, hose and wiring holes, capable of housing a 6’3”-tall driver upon completion.

The Tomahawk’s doors open at a 75 degree angle, and Dubuc SLC claim the inclusion of a see-through Targa roof is a first for a kit-car.

Dubuc SLC also claims the Tomahawk is “a size close to a Lamborghini and the weight of a Lotus”, with the completed car weighing as low as 910kg, depending on the chosen engine.

The body is rust-proof and need not be painted, however Dubuc SLC gives you a choice of five colours anyway.

Dubuc SLC says the Tomahawk can be assembled eight-times faster than a typical kit-car - with an estimated build-time of 250 hours – or the Canadian carmaker can build it for you.

The 2014 Montreal International Auto Show runs from January 17-26.
