All-new road legal hypercar delivers maximum performance on and off the track. Only 89 will be made so make a decision quick before they’re all snapped up!
Born from a 115-year Czech racing history and a reputation for impressive lightweight karts, Praga takes inspiration from its roots. The Bohema is set to raise the bar for road legal performance cars.
Released in its pre-production prototype form, Praga is aiming for a sub 1,000kg mid-engined two-seater hypercar capable of over 300km/h. The car was designed around a challenge from former F1 driver and IndyCar driver Romain Grosjean to create “a genuine uncompromised two-person road/track performance car.”
The Bohema’s engine is based on the 3.8-litre twin-turbo V6 engine used in Nissan’s GT-R models. To make it hypercar worthy, Litchfield Engineering is tuning the engine and targeting 700bhp at 6,800rpm and 725Nm of torque from 3,000 rpm to 6,000rpm.
Only 89 will be produced to honour the 89th anniversary of Praga’s 1933 road race victory. Production is set to begin mid-2023 with 10 cars planned for next year with a price tag of CAD$1.8 million.
To keep the weight down to 982kg wet without fuel, it has a carbon fibre monocoque chassis and body. The vehicle also has extensive aero design to provide over 900kg of downforce at 250km/h. Central-locked wheels are 18in at the front and 19in at the rear for on-road compliance but can be changed to 18in wheels all-round for FIA GT3 compatibility.
Grosjean said, “I was astonished by the Bohema’s amazing performance on track, its accessibility on road, and the ease of transition between the two. Praga has truly delivered on my challenge! On the road, you get a smooth ride, the car eliminates the bumps, you can chat with the passenger, and everything is calm and OK.
“Simply switch focus and you are on the track. The same clothes, the same car, but the feeling changes and you are pushing the limit and collecting amazing lap times again and again, discovering unbelievable possibilities in the Bohema. And we still have a few months to fine-tune the on-road compliance and on-track lap times!”
The final production specification will be announced in the first half of 2023.
