Praga Bohema Supercar with Nissan GT-R Engine Now Available for Purchase

Million-Dollar Hypercars Delivered to Customers by Mid-2024

Following its debut in prototype form over a year ago, the long-awaited Bohema supercar from Praga, one of the oldest automakers in the world, has officially entered production. Originally scheduled to begin last year with a projected 10 units being produced, the launch faced unforeseen delays for undisclosed causes.

The assembly of the Bohema was carefully crafted by hand, with the initial customers of Praga having the opportunity to witness the process at the Czech Republic factory. These affluent buyers were also given the chance to test out the final version of the Bohema on the frigid roads of the European nation, using standard Pirelli Trofeo R tires. The use of a six-speed sequential manual transmission made this an especially thrilling experience.

Let us be reminded that every Bohema manufactured by the 117-year-old car company begins at €1.36 million (equivalent to approximately $1.48 million in today’s currency exchange rates).

The production of the Bohema model is a result of extensive development and testing processes carried out in the previous year, which included collaborations with notable figures such as Romain Grosjean – former Formula One driver turned IndyCar racer, Ben Collins – ex-Stig from BBC’s Top Gear, and Josef Kral – Praga’s chief test driver and seasoned GT racer.

One standout feature of the Praga Bohema is its impressive power source – a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine sourced from the Nissan GT-R and modified by the renowned British engineering company, Litchfield. Known for their expertise in maximizing the output of the VR38 engine, Litchfield has fine-tuned this power plant to produce a formidable 700 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 535 lb-ft of torque from 3,000 to 6,000 rpm. This surpasses the capabilities of the similarly spec’d 621-hp Maserati MC20, despite the latter’s smaller 3.0-liter Nettuno engine.

The maximum velocity of the Praga reaches up to 186 mph and it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in less than 3.5 seconds (with the MC20 achieving this in under 2.9 seconds, for reference).

In addition to its powerful engine, the street-legal Bohema supercar boasts a lightweight carbon fiber monocoque and body, weighing just 2,165 pounds. Utilizing aerodynamic features, this track-focused vehicle can generate an impressive 1,984 lbs of downforce at speeds of up to 155 mph, surpassing both the Mercedes-AMG ONE and the McLaren Senna in terms of downforce.

Praga is set to introduce the inaugural Bohema model to a customer in the initial six months of 2024, showcasing its one-of-a-kind specifications. Subsequently, deliveries to customers will proceed in the UAE and the US throughout 2024, with plans already underway to commence production in 2025.

Prage has announced that the highly anticipated Bohema will be unveiled to the public in the spring of 2024. Limited chances for test drives will also be made available. However, the specific number of units to be produced was not revealed in the recent statement. This information was previously mentioned by the company, stating that a total of 89 vehicles would be manufactured.
