Spyros Panopoulos (SP) Automative is set to unveil its limited two-seat Chaos ‘ultra car’ early next month.

Panopoulos, 43, decided to create “something more than a hypercard” from scratch in 2019.

“Chaos is not a racing car, it is a city car, a car for every day, only with more sophisticated performance,” he told Greek Reporter.

“We want it to be suitable for the everyday commute,” he said.

His formula was a lightweight car with intense power.

“For every two horsepower there is one kilogram of mass,” the SP website says.

“The vehicle moving from A to B will need half the time needed by a hypercar or megacar.”

Only 15 to 20 models of the car will be built each year and sold at a starting price of US$6.3 million – US$14.3 million.

Its four-liter V10 will produce 2,000 horsepower in the milder version, and 3,000 in the hotter iteration that revs to 12,000 rpm.

Zero to 62 miles per hour is said to take 1.8 seconds, with top speed said to be 310 miles per hour.

It will have an eight-speed dual-clutch transmission, fully independent suspension, and all-wheel drive.

Panopoulos became involved in racing and founded his company in 1997. He was creating his own performance parts by 2005.
