Despite the energy transition that is beginning, some agree that we are living the golden age of the automobile, with a plethora of sports cars and supercars, each more powerful than the other. The latest is Greek and is called “Greek Chaos”. It is a hypercar destined to become one of the most extreme cars.
The manufacturer, namely SP Automotive, is a Greek start-up that is bursting with ambition and even calls its car a “the world’s first ultracar”. Indeed, with the figures announced as a teaser before its official presentation on 1is next november, there is a chance that this car will inaugurate yet another new category in the world of sports cars.
A monster without compromise
The Greek Chaos was supposed to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in 2022, the automotive mecca of no compromise of sorts, but due to the cancellation of the Swiss event, its reveal is advanced to 1is November. But even before its presentation, we already know a lot about this famous “ultracar”.
Featured in an almost four-minute video, the Greek Chaos is the work of Spyros Panopoulos, a Greek entrepreneur who started car development in 2019 with the aim of building the fastest and most advanced production car technologically to the world.
In terms of technologies, we find in particular many functions indexed to augmented reality, a 5G connection and a V2X system allowing vehicles to communicate with each other. The powertrain, meanwhile, is a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V10 available in two power levels. There is a version of 2000 horses and another from 3000 horsepower. Under the latter configuration, the V10 would be capable of reaching up to 12,000 rpm.
The hunt for records is on
The Greek Chaos is obviously a model destined to become exclusive, as evidenced by its low production, since the company plans to assemble between 15 and 20 cars per year, for a total volume of 100 units.
As shown in the video, SP literally did not skimp on the means to build this model, in particular using the “the most expensive materials from aerospace technologies”. Materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, Zylon (a special lightweight and strong polymer), Kevlar and an Inconel exhaust system make up the few elements of the Greek Chaos.
The starting price will be € 5.5 million for the “basic” version, and will change to € 12.4 million for the “full option” variant of 3000 horsepower. What to make pale the Bugatti Centodieci, the hypercar from Molsheim produced in 10 copies for 8 million euros each.
And, as if that weren’t enough, Spyros Panapoulos set himself the goal of breaking the Nürburgring lap record. In any case, all that remains is to wait for the 1is next November to discover all the details of the first hypercar to come from Greece.
