Spyros Panopoulos Chaos Is The First Greek Hypercar And It Will Not Be An EV
Nowadays, there are plenty of startup companies cooking up an EV hypercar. Thanks to the electrical revolution, the hypercar industry has become like the watch industry – come up with a provocative design and then outsource the electric powertrain from somewhere else. However, internal combustion engine hypercars are still alive and it seems the next big thing isn’t coming from Bugatti, Pagani, or Koenigsegg, but….from Greece.
2021 Rolls-Royce Cullinan By Klassen
On the U.S. market, a base Rolls Royce Cullinan is priced at $330,000. Not the cheapest SUV out there, but not very bad considering we are looking at a super-luxurious SUV. Then again, if you think that the prices for the Aston Martin DBX start from $180k and the ones for the Lamborghini Urus from a little over $210k, maybe the Cullinan is a bit expensive!
But, how would you feel about a $1 million Cullinan? Or, to be more precise €833,000 - or about $965,000 at the current exchange rate. A model like this actually does exist and it comes from the German tuner Klasses. Why is it so expensive? Lets find out!
After 5 Years, the Mercedes-AMG One Finally Goes Into Production
It’s been a little over four years since Mercedes and AMG first revealed the Project One – a daring hypercar whose goal was to blend F1 performance and technology with the simple phrase “road capable.” As easy as that sounds, there’s a reason we’ve had to wait so long for the original Project One to become a reality – it wasn’t so easy after all. For six months after its unveiling, Mercedes was balls to the wall when it came to sharing insight about development and goals, even claiming that the One was going to be the fastest car to ever grace the Nürburgring. But, this is where fairy tales become nightmares, and both Mercedes and AMG finally got a taste of just how hard it is to build a true F1 car for the road.
2023 Aston Martin DB6 Remastered By Lunaz
While it may be true that the Aston Martin DB6 has never enjoyed the same success or reputation level as the DB5, it was still a very impressive car. It offered improved aerodynamic and specifications compared to the DB5 and was offered in both coupe and convertible form. The problem with the DB6 is of course its age. Being built from 1965 to 1971 it is of course very difficult to find one in pristine condition. And this is where Lunaz comes along. For the right money - and we are talking about $1 million - the company will restore, re-engineer, and electrify your DB6.

2023 Farnova Othello Aims To Be The Quickest EV Hypercar
New EV hypercars have become kind of a flatulent occurrence lately, as more and more startup companies are coming up with concepts that promise power and torque outputs, dwarfing those of a Bugatti Chiron or a Koenigsegg Regera. We have seen some impressive numbers from the Rimac Nevera, but now there may be a car that could challenge it if the numbers turn out to be true, and it’s being made by a Chinese Yacht company.
