The Boreas' hybrid hypercar isn't the first hybrid hypercar that will be developed in the world, but, for a small company to carry forward an example in the league of the McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari, it is going to be an epic battle

Before we speak about this car, in particular, let's clarify what a hypercar is. It is a vehicle which has insane performance figures with the use of lightweight materials all around from the chassis to the powertrain to the body and other components. What is a hybrid hypercar? Using the green technology that is present to reduce emissions and basically weaponise it to churn out not just impressive but mind-boggling performance figures.

The McLaren P1, Ferrari La Ferrari, Porsche 918, Pagani Huayra and the Koenigsegg One:1 is such hybrid hypercar examples. This territory will soon see a new player, Boreas, enter this unrealistic realm claimed by the juggernauts. The official reveal of their first ever car is a week away and the company has released a teaser of the 12 examples that would be sold.

Although the complete technical specifications are still not known, what is known is that the electric-gasoline engine will churn out 1,000 hp of power and there will be undoubtedly the use of lightweight materials. The model will make its global entry on 14th June 2017 at Le Mans, just days before the annual event. What is the really interesting bit here is that buyers of the 12 such brutal examples will be involved in the production process. This means they will be able to tell the technicians what exactly they expect from their particular hybrid hypercar, apart from the blistering speed.

Another aspect that is not known is where the engine has been sourced from, however, Boreas' own engineers have tuned it. Speculations also suggest that the production-ready version of the hypercar will be mid-engined and has already sold out. The development has been carried out by DSD Design & Motorsports and the project sponsors include Michelin according to various reports. The big players, if you are reading this, it may be time to follow these carmakers!
