New hypercars from unknown manufacturers consistently appear out of nowhere and at last month’s Le Mans 24 Hours, the latest entrant debuted right under our noses.
Beyond the weird decision to debut the vehicle at Le Mans rather than an auto show, the car in question comes from a company we bet you’ve never heard of; DSD Design & Motorsport.
That name might not roll off the tongue like Ferrari or Lamborghini but we can tell you it hails from Spain and is dubbed the Boreas after the Greek god of the North Wind.
From a design standpoint, the Boreas is certainly attention-grabbing. It adopts a typical supercar shape and has a front end dominated by a steeply raked hood, McLaren-inspired carbon fiber air intakes and a curvaceous windscreen that flows uninterrupted into the roof. The intriguing design touches then continue at the rear with a carbon fiber wing, two taillights, a Bugatti Chiron style central LED strip and edgy tailpipes.
No details have been given about what will power the Boreas but it will allegedly be a hybrid powertrain with more than 1,000 hp on tap. This should make for a 0-60 mph (96 km/h) time of less than 3 seconds and a top speed around 236 mph (379 km/h).
Production is expected to start in December. We’ll believe it when we see it.
