Praga Teases Track-Focused Road-Legal Supercar For November 23 Debut

No comments

A Czech engineering company founded more than 100 years ago is preparing to launch a new low-volume supercar. Praga Cars has now released the first teaser image of its new product and a short video featuring the yet-to-be-named vehicle, which will be revealed in full on November 23 at 17:00 GMT. We’ll have all the details and will share them with you next week, but for now, only preliminary information is available.

Prague car said the vehicle would be road legal but would be focused on maximum performance on the track. The automaker said it would distribute the car worldwide but would limit production to just 12 examples in the first year of production to ensure exclusivity. Whether that means more units will be built in 2024 and beyond is unclear for now.

The teaser video attached at the top of this page doesn’t reveal much, but Praga Cars says the supercar will present “a look that stands out”. Despite its tough aerodynamics and focus on track performance, the machine will be fully road-compliant and will be capable of “putting very fast turns in the hands of a skilled driver”.

Technical details remain a mystery for now, though Praga Cars confirmed the supercar will be powered by “gasoline power”, which likely means it will have a gasoline-burning engine under the hood. The vehicle body, in turn, will feature carbon fiber components as Praga appears to want to build a lightweight sports car for the track.

It’s important to note that the new model is currently in the final stages of development and Praga Cars says it has nothing to do with the Praga R1 track race car (see related link above). This handcrafted machine was launched about 10 years ago and featured a naturally aspirated Renault 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 210 horsepower (155 kilowatts) and 162 pound-feet (220 Newton-meters) of torque.

Judging from the short video, the road-legal supercar will likely be bigger and have a bigger engine. Praga Cars also said the two engines will share the basic philosophy of lightweight construction and a “dramatically high” power-to-weight ratio.
