Nissan GT-R Engine Powers This $1.4 Million Supercar

New to Production: Praga Bohema – A Must-Have for Car Enthusiasts!

Praga is a relatively unfamiliar name, especially in the United States. Established in 1907, it once dominated the European automotive industry for the first half of the 20th century. However, a combination of factors led to its downfall in the mid-1960s. Nevertheless, Praga has returned to the market with a brand-new offering – a supercar equipped with a powerful Nissan GT-R engine.

In November 2022, the initial version of the Praga Bohema was revealed and it is now prepared for mass production. The luxury car will be constructed by hand at a specialized facility in the Czech Republic, with a limited run of only 89 units. With a price tag of approximately $1.4 million, the first group of buyers have already been given a personal tour of the factory.

Significantly, the first customers were given the opportunity to experience the impressive capabilities of the Bohema on slippery roads in the Czech Republic. The vehicles were equipped with Pirelli Trofeo R tires, which will come standard, giving a preview of what’s to come when the car makes its official debut in spring of 2024. Praga has announced that the initial customer deliveries are slated for later this year in Europe and will include a special trim to commemorate the event. Deliveries are also planned for the United Arab Emirates and the United States towards the end of 2024. Excitingly, Praga is now accepting orders for the 2025 model and beyond.

At the core of the Bohema lies a double-charged 3.8-liter V6 borrowed from the Nissan GT-R through a partnership between Praga and Nissan. In this particular usage, the engine produces a remarkable 700 horsepower and 535 pound-feet of torque. With a weight just under 2,200 pounds, the car can reach speeds exceeding 186 miles per hour.

Praga has announced that it received valuable assistance from esteemed race car drivers during the creation and optimization of their vehicle. The highly experienced Romain Grosjean, who has competed in both Formula 1 and IndyCar, along with Ben Collins, also known as the former Stig, were actively involved in this undertaking.
