Spanish Supercar Maker Wants to Take On Koenigsegg
A Spanish boutique automaker called Boreas is teasing a new hypercar that is looking to take on brands like Pagani and Koenigsegg.
In just over a week, the brand plans to take the wraps off its first model, a plug-in hybrid hypercar that will make more than 1,000 horsepower. The unnamed car is said to be able to travel up to 60 miles on electricity alone, while the engine itself comes from a major manufacturer.
A dark teaser video has been released to give us a sense for what the car will look like, and based on its proportions, there’s a chance that it will be mid-engine.
Just 12 units of the new hypercar and planned and each one will be customized by its owner. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but needless to say, the car will be very expensive and is probably already sold out.
Boreas will roll the car out at Le Mans on June 14, a few days before the race. It will then travel to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to go on display.
