Among the salivating supercars on display will be the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the 1,000-hp Boreas from Spain.
Last week’s 24 Hours Le Mans race was eventful for several reasons. Porsche took the victory for the third year in the row, continuing the automaker’s legacy as the most successful manufacturer to race in Le Mans, and two LMP2 cars finished on the podium for the first time ever. Prior to the race last week, the iconic La Sarthe circuit also hosted the reveal of the Boreas, a new hybrid hypercar from Spain with blistering performance rivaling the likes of the Ferrari LaFerrari, Porsche 918 Spyder and McLaren P1.
Developed by engineering company DSD Design and Motorsport, the plug-in hybrid powertrain powering the Boreas produces over 1,000 horsepower, though further details have yet to be revealed. The battery capacity is also still unknown, but it will offer 100 km of pure electric range. Photos posted by Drivetribe and the Spanish version of Car and Driver show that the Boreas will have a McLaren-esque shape, featuring a front splitter, large rear spoiler and full LED headlights. Boreas also confirmed at the event that only 12 examples will be built, hence why the name is derived from the Greek god of the north wind who had 12 sons and daughters. It will also ride exclusively on Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires.
After being revealed at Le Mans, the Boreas will make its UK debut at the upcoming Goodwood Festival of Speed event at the main Michelin stand where more details of the intriguing hypercar will be revealed. Joining it will be the Aston Martin Valkyrie hypercar featuring exclusive Michelin PS Cup 2 tires (presumably it will be the near final production model that was recently shown off with headlights), as well as the UK debut of the electric Vanda Dendrobium hypercar from Singapore. Developed in collaboration with the UK Williams F1 team, the aerodynamic design was modelled after a dendrobium flower.
Its performance will also turn heads, as Singapore’s first ever hypercar can hit 0-62 mph in as little as 2.6 seconds, and a top speed of around 200 mph. Also on display at the stand will be the Ultima Sports Evolution Coupe sports car inspired by Le Mans Group C styling and performance, boasting a top speed of 240 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 2.3 seconds.
