In the midst of the transformation of the automotive industry, in recent months we have seen more and more brutal projects of exclusive hypercars with exaggerated performance that seem like newcomers from another era. Many will remain in the project, but others will become part of the most inaccessible collections on the planet. To one of the two lists is now added the SP Chaos.
This concept, which has been in development for two years, is the particular dream of automotive engineer Spyros Panopoulos, CEO of SP Automotive and fond of competition. The Greek hoped to present his “ultra car” – as he calls it – at the 2022 Geneva Motor Show, but by canceling the event he has accelerated his plans.
State-of-the-art technology and 3D printed parts
To build the SP Chaos Panopoulos, he has spared no expense and, in addition to creating a monocoque chassis with carbon and Kevlar bodywork, he has used common materials in aerospace technology like titanium, Zylon (a special lightweight and resistant polymer) and Inconel in the exhaust system.
In addition, specific parts have been created for this hypercar 3D printed such as the 21-inch titanium wheels on the front axle and 22 on the rear or the carbo-ceramic brakes, which according to their creator would be capable of working even up to 12,000 rpm.
With generous dimensions of 5.05 meters long, 2.07 wide and 1.12 high, the SP Chaos promises a spacious cabin. In terms of design, the style that is somewhere between minimalist and futuristic with a sporty touch may in part recall that of the hypercars of Aston Martin and Adrian Newey. SP Automotive has included among other trinkets, augmented reality and 5G connection.
A maximum speed of more than 500 km / h
The heart of SP Chaos is a V10 4.0 l, with components made of aluminum, titanium or carbon fiber. Even its two turbochargers feature a titanium-ceramic compound for the turbines. Everything is little for a performance of heart attack, like a maximum speed greater than 500 km / h.
Available in two versions, the Chaos specifications are from 2,077 CV for the configuration ‘Earth Version’, but above it is the so-called ‘Zero Gravity’, which boasts no less than 3,107 hp. The turning limit according to the manufacturer is between 10,000 and 12,000 rpm.
The Earth version weighs 1,388 kilos, but the Zero Gravity is only 1,272 kilos. With the incredible weight / power ratio it achieves, the Chaos promises an acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h in 1.55 seconds and reaches 300 km / h from a standstill in 7.1 seconds. Definitely from another galaxy.
The arrival of the first units is scheduled by early 2022 and the starting prices are just as exaggerated as its features: the “access” version will cost 5.5 million euros, while the price for the most powerful and equipped version, Zero Gravity, increases to 12.4 million.
The production of the SP Chaos will be limited to only 20 units for each continent and the distribution will be borne by Sotheby’s.
Spyros Panapoulos has set out to smash all speed records with his “ultra car” in the Green Hell. For now, we will have to wait to see if it is capable of doing it.
