Spanish supercar startup DSD Design and Motorsport has pulled the silk of its Boreas supercar, which it hopes is set to battle the high-powered vehicles from boutique automakers such as Pagani, Koenigsegg, and others.
The Boreas – named after a Greek god – will be powered by a hybrid internal-combustion-electric drivetrain, churning out around 1000 horsepower, according to early reports.
Claimed acceleration is staggering, with the Boreas tipped to hit 100 km/h from naught in only 2.8 seconds, going on to a top speed of 379 km/h.
When driven conservatively, the plug-in hybrid is rumoured to achieve an electric-only driving range of at least 96 kilometers.
Because the god Boreas fathered 12 sons, only a dozen examples will be built, with production slated to begin this December.
The car was first revealed off-track at the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans held in June this year.
It’s unclear how much the car will sell for, but if its performance and production quality measure up to the best from Germany and Italy, it’s possible we’ll see more supercars from DSD Design and Motorsport in the not-so-distant future.
