The $14 Million, World’s First ‘Ultracar’ Is Here And It Makes 3,065 Horsepower

A Greek company called SP Automotive is making the 3,065 hp ultracar and it’s almost twice as powerful as a Bugatti Chiron.

Gone are the days where “hypercars” meant the cars that made insane horsepower numbers. The term is now replaced with “ultracar” after the 3000+ hp SP Automotive Chaos. No too long ago, average supercars that made roughly 700 hp were considered to be obnoxiously fast and the 1750 hp SSC Tuatara was recognized as the most powerful hypercar in the world. But imagine the performance of a car that is capable of pushing over 300 hp.

Speaking about the SP Automotive Chaos, the makers revealed that it would be available in two variants. The base trim called Earth Version is a more docile variant with 2,049 horsepower produced by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V10 engine. The engine that will redline at 10000rpm will produce 1025 lb-ft of torque in this trim. The motor is designed and developed in-house, with billet aluminum or 3D-printed Magnesium alloy engine block.

However, the more thrilling variant named, Zero Gravity uses a further tuned V10 and is fitted with an undisclosed form of hybrid assist to produce the mind-boggling 3065 horsepower and 1463 lb-ft of torque. The company claims that the ultracar would be able to hit o-60mph in just 1.55 seconds and run a quarter mile in 7.5 seconds.

Aside from its insane performance figures, the design of the Chaos looks as if it has been inspired from a video game. The front looks to be inspired by a Formula 1 car with a narrow nose and wild aerodynamic elements. There is extensive use of 3D printing and exotic materials to make sure the impressive figures on paper would come true and reserve the world recordS that have been mentioned already. SP Automotive assures that the car’s aerodynamics designs are the best ever to be applied to a car. Although it looks wild and aggressive, we aren’t sure if it would pass homologation rules in most parts of the world. The company has planned on making a limited run of 20 units, but it could increase if demand allows. However, you aren’t going to get all of these for cheap, as the SP Automotive Chaos is priced at $14.4 million.
