Spyros Panopoulos Automotive has almost reached all major touchstones of the supercar type. This car has a crazy name: Chaos. It has magnificent abstract decorations: chaotic earth and chaotic zero gravity. It has great horsepower: 2,049 horses in the form of the earth or 3,065 horses in the form of zero gravity. Its components are made of expensive and exotic materials, such as 3D printed titanium and Zylon. The performance requirements are huge: zero gravity accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 1.55 seconds, accelerates to 62 to 124 mph in another 1.7 seconds, and has a top speed of more than 310 mph. But the first of the three unexpected derivatives of the supercar game is the country of origin of Chaos: Athens, Greece, which is a completely in-house product of Panopoulos Automotive, which apparently produces special parts for exotic mass-produced cars. The second is its price, the earth is 5.5 million euros (6.3 million U.S. dollars), and the zero gravity is 12.4 million euros (14.1 million U.S. dollars). The last point is that its creator insists that he has surpassed the super sports car and created the first "super car."

When you look at the ground clearance, the lengthy front overhang, the thinnest rubber we've seen on road cars, and the tapered cab that looks like a luxurious sausage shell, remember the words of Spyros Panopoulos: "'Chaos' is not Racing, it’s a city car, it’s a daily-use car, but it’s more advanced in performance. We want it to be suitable for daily commuting and drivers of all categories, because it’s easy to configure for use between 500 and 3,000 horses."

We will start with the meat, this is a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V10, also developed in-house and installed behind the cabin. We were told that the engine was built around aluminum billets or 3D printed magnesium alloy blocks, with 3D printed titanium pistons and connecting rods, a 3D printed camshaft that looked like Gaudí's artwork, and forced air intake and wrapping through titanium Magnesium turbocharger in carbon fiber pipe. The only major engine differences between the two interiors are turbocharged amount, speed limit and gasoline specifications. The Earth added 1,025 pound-feet of torque to its output, with a top speed of 11,000 rpm, helping it reach 62 miles per hour in 1.9 seconds. Zero gravity runs on the E85, throws 1.463 pound-feet on any problem, and spins up to 12,200 rpm. The company claims that it can run a quarter of a mile in 7.5 seconds in zero gravity, 0.4 seconds more than the car's 186 miles per hour. Both decorations shoot flames from a set of four 3D printed tubes.

Around this, the monocoque chassis is made of synthetic polymer Zylon, and we were told that “78% of the body is 3D printed Anadiaplasi from titanium and magnesium alloys and carbon fiber or carbon Kevlar body parts.” Anadiaplasi is Panopoulos A manufacturing technology that Automotive claims to create. The surrounding independent suspension uses titanium or magnesium wishbones. The front wheel is a 21-inch 3D printed magnesium alloy, and the rear wheel is a 22-inch 3D printed titanium alloy. They hover around the 19-inch wide carbon ceramic brakes and are clamped by 3D printed brake calipers. According to reports, Chaos Earth weighs 2,839 pounds, and zero gravity is reported to weigh 2,804 pounds due to the increased use of lightweight materials.

The cabin is all carbon fiber, magnesium, titanium, Zylon and Alcantara. There is a yoke steering wheel with a screen in the middle, and several other screens cover almost the entire dashboard.

Panopoulos said he already has his first deposit and plans to make the first delivery in mid-2022. The production plan is to make 20 cars for each continent. We assume that this means that there is a permanent population, so 120 cars. It is said that Sotheby's is the exclusive distributor. As for seeing Chaos in action, record-breaking attempts are scheduled for the Nurburgring and Ehra-Lessien test tracks in 2022 and 2023, and Top Gear plans to conduct an independent declaration of all these statements in 2022. test.
