Appropriately, it's called the "Chaos."
Traditionally, the Geneva Motor Show hosts world debuts of absurdly powerful hypercars. This year's show was set to continue this tradition, with the premieres of the production Rimac C_Two electric hypercar and the Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, but organizers were forced to cancel the event in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Lesser-known companies also use the Swiss expo to gain vital exposure.
Looking ahead, Greek tuning company Spyros Panopoulos Automotive is planning to debut its new "Chaos" hypercar at next year's Geneva Motor Show in March 2021. The extraordinary hypercar has already been teased under a sheet, and now Spyros Panopoulos has shared some new photos of the Chaos uncovered, giving us a closer look at its aerodynamic rear fascia, central titanium 3D-printed quad exhaust, and 3D printed matrix LED taillights.
The futuristic design looks very striking, but don't expect to see any more previews any time soon. Spyros Panopoulos has confirmed it won't share any more photos or details of the Chaos until the car debuts at the 2021 Geneva Motor Show.
Powering the Chaos is a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V10 engine with two states of tune. The "entry-level" version will have 2,000 hp, while the range-topping model will have, wait for it, 3,000 hp. The 2,000-hp version of the engine will run on normal gasoline and rev up to 11,000 rpm, but if you want maximum power, the 3,000-hp version will only run on E85 fuel. The redline will also increase to 12,000 rpm - that's even higher than the Aston Martin Valkyrie, which has a redline of 11,100 rpm.
All that power will be sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, enabling the Greek hypercar to accelerate from 0-62 mph in less than two seconds. If the Chaos already didn't sound extreme, the company will also show off a second hypercar that's "10 years ahead of its time." Color us intrigued.
As impressive as these specs sound, many companies have promised to build game-changing hypercars over the years and failed to deliver. We'll reserve our judgment until we see a working prototype in action. Spyros Panopoulos Automotive isn't the first tuner to take on such an audacious project, however. Porsche tuner Gemballa, for example, is building a new 800-hp hypercar.
