In this case, a Greek automaker that goes by the name of Spyros Panopoulos or SP Automotive has unveiled its ultracar that carries the Chaos name and besides the power output, it is the $14.4 million (R217,000,000) price tag that caught our attention.
The Chaos ultra car is offered in two flavours; Earth Version and Zero Gravity.
At the heart of the SP Chaos is a hybridised twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V10 engine that supposedly gushes out 2,285 kW and 1,984 Nm of torque. That’s enough to catapult the Chaos from a standstill to 100 km/h in 1.5 seconds with the top speed kicking in at over 500 km/h while a 0-300 km/h sprint is achieved in 7.1 seconds…that’s chaotic!
If you think that is too fast for your liking, the lesser Earth Version makes 1,527 kW and 1,389 Nm produced by a slightly detuned V10 unit with no hybrid system on sight. It is slapped with a $6.4m (R96,500,000) price tag.
The transmission comes courtesy of a dual-clutch unit that sends power to all four corners via a standard all-wheel-drive system. The stopping prowess is provided by 428 mm Carbon Ceramic brake discs at the front and 416 mm at the back. It rides on a set of 22” 3D-printed wheels.
According to SP Automotive, the Chaos will try to break nearly every speed record as well as attempt to beat Porsche’s Nürburgring record of 6:43:30 set by the 911 GT2 RS.
The Greek automaker wants to make 15 to 20 Chaos models per year but that could change depending on demand.
