A few days ago, we brought you news of the upcoming Magnum MK5, a Canadian-built "high performance two-seater lightweight supercar" that is scheduled for an official debut on October 30. Short of that description and timeframe for viewing, we didn't know very much at all about the curious new offering from the Great White North.

Until Autoblog reader Clay caught some very interesting video footage, that is...

Now, to be clear, we have no idea what the car in these videos actually is. You'll see below that the car Clay shot in downtown Montreal is hardly ever out of a shadowy position while filming some burnout scenes in a cleared street. But its extremely long hood and short rear deck match the proportions of the covered car images we were teased with from MK5, as does the curvaceous tilt of those front fenders, (even if the covered car in the official teaser may be a roadster). What's more, the turbo-informed, small displacement soundtrack apparent in the video would seem to jive with the notion of a lightweight sporting machine.

What do you say, eagle-eyed reader? Is this the Magnum MK5 doing donuts, or something else entirely? Watch the videos below and then sound off in Comments.

UPDATE: It would appear that this shadowy mystery car is not the Magnum MK5, but rather the little-known Felino CB7 out of Quebec, though we do not yet have official confirmation as such.

      Aside from the bizarrely flat rear windows, I'm liking it. Those windows, though, look like they're just scrap glass from a house or something.

      If you click through to the Felino webiste you get to see nice pictures of the car ... there is also a link to an article from La Presse .... it's worth putting through Google Translate. It's pretty interesting. The car was designed and built by a former racer in his mid 30s. It's currently running a 2.0l engine. http://auto.lapresse.ca/opinions/jacques-duval/201210/18/01-4584620-la-felino-cb7-une-voiture-quebecoise-hors-du-commun.php

      No mystery here. That is the Ace and Gary mobile.

      Reminds me of an old car that I can't remember the name. It had a very rearward seating position and very small overhang.

      Looks like the car from the "Amazingly Gay Duo" on SNL. "Mount up, Ace, we're gonna nail this guy. "

      Now is not a proud moment for me as a Canadian.

      The profile reminds me of cars I used to draw in middle school back in the early 70s. I'm not sure where that lies in the compliment - criticism spectrum.

        how did i know the first comment would be a comparison meant to devalue a new effort by saying any known car brand with a similar car shape. Quick you get to building a car and post it here so i can do you next.
