Praga Bohema: more than 700 hp on 982 kilos

Have the aliens landed? Not yet, but anyone who sees this Praga Bohema would almost believe it. The Bohema is a feather-light street racer with a huge amount of power. Unlike many other new extremists today, the Bohema does not have an electric powertrain.

Earlier this month, the Czech company Praga Cars announced the arrival of a new supercar. That car has now been revealed and its name is Bohema. The Bohema is built around a full carbon fiber chassis and the body is also made of that material. The two-seater therefore weighs only 982 kilos. Those kilos are not set in motion by an electric motor, but simply by a 3.8-liter six-cylinder. That is not just a block, but in principle the machine that Nissan has been hanging in the GT-R since 2007.

The 3.8 V6 equipped with two turbos has been taken care of by the English Litchfield Engineering and produces more than 700 hp and 725 Nm. Lichtfield, which normally also manages to extract powers above 1,000 hp from the 3.8 – gives the block a dry sump system. This means that the car does not have a regular crankcase, but an external oil tank. The lack of a crankcase means, among other things, that the engine can be hung lower in the car. This in turn has a positive effect on the center of gravity, which is therefore a lot lower. Bohema, tested by none other than former F1 and Indycar driver Romain Grosjean, has a top speed of just over 300 km/h. At 250 km/h, the spoiler already generates more than 900 kilos of downward pressure.

The Bohema is perhaps best described as a GT3 racer that you can also use on public roads. In addition, it also offers some comfort. For example, we see that the interior, which weighs only 38 kilos, is finished with attractive-looking material. Praga also speaks of the presence of a 50-liter luggage compartment on both sides of the car.

The extreme colossus is produced in an edition of only 89 pieces. Each copy costs at least €1.28 million. Oof.
