A new hypercar from the Czech Republic

~New road BEAST~ Each one that is specially made to be able to roll quickly definitely has its own interesting story to watch. So that's what happened recently caught our attention when Praga, an automotive company from the Czech Republic, has revealed its latest creation named the Praga Bohema in the form of a pre-production road legal hypercar prototype which reportedly has high performance despite its light weight.

For your information, Praga is a Czech's automotive company that has been operating for 115 years and is known for producing racing cars, karts, go-karts and airplanes. And its-newest Praga Bohema is a 2-seater hypercar that has a unique bodywork built based on a carbon fiber monocoque chassis coupled with a fully adjustable suspension for circuit purposes, with a light weight of around 982 kg (without fuel).

The aerodynamically inspired design of the car doesn't take away from the elegant and eye-catching design of the bodywork to ensure the car looks fast, and good looking, developed by Praga's small but talented team of engineers and designers, and then perfected in the F1 team's wind tunnel. So no wonder if the innovative aerodynamic design provides more than 900 kg of downforce at 250 kph with a top speed up to of 300 kph.

The Praga Bohema has an ergonomic interior in a narrow cockpit that is aerodynamically honed but can accommodate two adults with a height of about two meters on its racing-buket seats, fully adjustable steering wheel and pedals, spacious luggage space, air conditioning (AC). and rear visibility camera system. Specifically, the Bohema cockpit is structurally designed with the target weight is only 34 kg all-around (as a focus to keep the car's weight under 1,000 kg) that's consisting with 56 individual carbon parts, then trimmed with high quality Alcantara and leather.
The Praga Bohema is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine adopted from the Nissan GT-R which can give off an output power of around 700 hp and a peak torque of 725 Nm. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
Regarding the drivetrain, the Czech Republic automaker has equipped the Bohema with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 engine adopted from the Nissan GT-R which can give off an output power of around 700 hp and a peak torque of 725 Nm, and is claimed to be able to provide very high performance on the track. The engine is paired with a Hewland-made sequential gearbox with a robotic clutch to transfer engine power to support a unique on-road experience with track-focused performance.

Although the engine power output figures are not too impressive compared as other supercars, on the other hand the Praga Bohema has a very light weight, which is 982 kg as a blessing from the use of a carbon fiber monocoque chassis and carbon fiber body panels. Thus it is not surprising that Praga claims its Bohema hyperbeast can accelerate from 0-100 kph in less than 2.3 seconds and can be driven to a top speed of up to 300 kph.

While the legs use an independent suspension system that can be adjusted and operated with pushrods mounted horizontally for maximum travel while minimizing the height of the car. Thus in the Praga Bohema development, the engineers were still able to maintain a supple enough suspension for road use without having to resort to expensive adaptive suspension systems.

Furthermore, the wheels are 18 inches in diameter at the front and 19 inches at the rear which are centrally locked to offer on-road compliance through the large tire walls, however, while Bohema will receive 18-inch wheels, the manufacturer is also said to ensure compatibility with tire dimensions in accordance with FIA GT3 specs. The brake system uses a lightweight but durable 380 mm carbon ceramic disc with 6-piston calipers, front and rear.
The Praga Bohema is produced only 89 units, as a tribute for the 89th Anniversary of Praga's historic victory in the 1933 Czechoslovak 1000 Mile race. (Picture from: Autocar)
And according to former Formula 1 and current IndyCar racer, Romain Grosjean who is known to be involved in the project, and has also tested the hypercar on the challenging 6 km Slovak Ring circuit in recent testing. As quoted by Autocar, he specifically highlighted the car's seamless transition from road to track while delivering extensive sessions.

"I was amazed by Bohema's excellent performance on the track, its accessibility on the road and the ease of transition between the two," said Romain.
The Czech Republic automaker will provide full specifications of its latest hypercar ahead of its production in 2023. And reportedly only 89 units of this car will be produced worldwide, as a tribute for the 89th Anniversary of Praga's historic victory in the 1933 Czechoslovak 1000 Mile racing. So for those of you who those who have plans to own it, you can start preparing the money because the plan is that Praga Bohema will be sold at a starting price range of €1.28 million or $1.34 million (around Rp. 20.5 billion).💥 *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PRAGA GLOBAL | AUTOCAR ]
