The most ultimate car ever “Made in Greece” from conception, to design, to manufacture.
The initial show was cancelled due to the pandemic, and after a break from making any kind of public announcements, founder Spyros Panopoulos concluded it was time for the Chaos to make its official debut which is now scheduled for Monday, November 1, 2021.
Panopoulos told CarScoops that they have just opened the books for what he described as “the first ultra car on the planet” having already secured their first order with the first delivery scheduled for early 2022.
Spyros also explained that the Chaos will be street legal, priced from around €5.5 million ($6.4 million) for the base 2,000 hp variant, up to €12.4 million ($14.4 million) for the full-spec 3,000 hp model.

The Chaos ultra car will attempt to set a new lap record for the fastest production car at the Nurburgring – a title that currently belongs to the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series with a 6:43.616 lap.
The Chaos will come in two versions. Both use a turbocharged four-litre, V10 engine with titanium camshafts, Inconel valves, 3D printed pistons and rods on a monocoque chassis.
The “lower” spec version pushes 2,000 HP while revving through to 11,000 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM). Its engine will use titanium rods and pistons and standard petrol.
The higher-spec version will reach 12,000 RPM and deliver 3,000 HP using e85 fuel. This version will come with ceramic pistons carbon fibre rods and injectors.
There will be no buttons to push in the cockpit as the driver will be using virtual-reality glasses to activate functions in the car which include a 5G-augmented platform. The car will weigh just 1,280kg.
The Chaos, he says, is not just about speed and acceleration but also the application of cutting-edge technology in its production, and in the way it drives.
Mr Panopoulos was born in 1978 in Athens. In the mid-1990s he came to car production through computer programming. He learnt to develop software and hardware
“I was into computers starting from low-level programming languages. My father, who was in the Greek Air Force, had a Golf GTI which did not have an onboard computer. So I made my own for the car,” he said.
Greece is not a country with a heritage in car manufacture. In 1997, the young man went to Europe to get the hardware he needed to develop his cars. In 1999, he approached a leading motorsport company that gave him an electronic control unit through which he developed his own software. It is a relationship he has retained to this day.
