The 3000-horsepower Chaos hypercar defies reality
The Greek company Spyros Panopoulos Automotive has sold the first copy of the Chaos ultracar, thereby challenging all automakers in the world. The former creator of unique engines for drag racing built a fantastic vehicle as a demonstrator of new technologies. Take at least the key indicators, the power of 3,065 hp and 1984 Nm of torque, despite the fact that among supercars, most do not exceed 1,000 hp, and among electric car manufacturers, no one has dared to cross the 2,000 hp milestone. What is even more amazing, the motor developing this incredible power is printed on a 3D printer made of magnesium alloy.
The crankshaft was obtained by the same method from titanium alloy, pistons from silicon carbide. Greek engineers have developed the “Anadiaplasi” technology, a kind of evolutionary design in which each node is designed separately in order to withstand specific loads on certain vectors. Everything superfluous is cut off to make an openwork design of an insane, indescribable shape, and extremely light weight.
It is possible to create such strange and complex shapes only with the help of 3D printing, with which about 78% of the machine’s design is made. All the more or less significant components, including the wheels and brake system, steering wheel and suspension, pedals and even the rear-view mirror mount are printed from titanium, tool steel and carbon fiber. And the rest is made of synthetic polymer Zylon, which is unofficially called the most durable in the world – chassis, monocoque, trim elements.
As a result, all this splendor weighs only 1272 kg. Chaos accelerates not just fast: after 7.1 seconds it gains a speed of 300 km / h, and how much faster than the declared 500 km/ h it will be able to go, is curious to its creators themselves. The main difficulty is that this car has no clear purpose, it is certainly not for sports records.
This is indicated, for example, by a strange mode of driving on a real road in virtual reality glasses accompanied by painted anime characters. How the management of such a monster and distracting funny pictures is consistent is decidedly unclear. The basic version of Chaos has an engine power limit of 2000 hp, and therefore the price tag is small, $ 6.4 million. For the full package, you will have to pay $ 14.4 million already.
