Marvel At The Intricate Details Of Greece's 3,000-HP Hypercar

Video / Comments

This is a work of art in every way.

The world of hypercars has become so saturated that it takes something truly unique with ridiculous claims to really make an impact these days. Four-figure horsepower claims are becoming more and more common, and it's not only hypercars that can achieve them. So how do you make sure you're noticed? If you work at Spyros Panapoulos Automotive (SPA), you build the most intricately detailed machine ever. Last week, the Greek boutique manufacturer reminded us of its epic Bugatti beater with new images, and now we have access to a video showing some of the car's impressive components and design flourishes in greater detail.

The video also provides some idea of what SPA hopes to achieve with this new creation. A 4.0-liter twin-turbo V10 engine running on E85 is nestled amidship and produces a whopping 3,023 horsepower with 1,463 lb-ft of torque. SPA claims that this will translate to a 0-62-mph time of just 1.55 seconds with a top speed of 310 mph. It can also get to 186 mph from a standing start in just 7.1 seconds, completing the quarter-milein less than half a second later. Now, we're taking SPA at its word, but we have to question how the automaker expects to achieve these targets if the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission is sending all its power to the rear wheels. Still, it's not inconceivable that a car as thoroughly detailed as this could employ a boost-by-gear system to help limit wheelspin and keep drivers from totally soiling themselves.

It'll be worth testing your limits if your cojones are solid enough since you can chase a 12,000-rpm redline, but if you'd like to save on adult diapers, there is a slightly less deranged version offering 2,000 hp and a redline that arrives 1,000 rpm earlier. Sadly, the video doesn't show us what the wild powerplant will sound like, but it should be sonorous since it has a titanium exhaust. Other stunning details include carbon-shrouded turbochargers, a biometric scanner as a start button, and even a 3D-printed crankshaft, dammit. It should be no wonder, then, that the asking price is an eye-watering €12.5 million - almost $14.5 million.
