Praga’s eye-catching Bohema is a supercar unlike any other and hot on the heels of its unveiling, Top Gear had the opportunity to check it out in person.
Powering the Praga Bohema is a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 sourced from a Nissan GT-R that is then modified by Litchfield in the UK. In addition to converting the V6 to a dry sump system, it features a pair of new turbochargers that allow it to pump out 700 hp at 6,800 rpm and 534 lb-ft (724 Nm) of torque between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm. The Bohema also rocks a titanium exhaust and a Hewland 6-speed sequential transmission.
In a world where hybrid supercars like the Ferrari SF90 Stradale are pumping out almost 1,000 hp, you may not consider 700 hp and 534 lb-ft to be all that impressive. However, the Praga is light. Very light. In fact, it features a carbon fiber monocoque and carbon fiber body panels that mean it weighs less than 1,000 kg (2,204 lbs) wet, allowing it to hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 2.3 seconds and power through to a 186 mph (299 km/h) top speed.
While Top Gear sadly didn’t have the opportunity to drive the Bohema, it was able to take a tour around the supercar.
Given that the Bohema has been designed with a key focus on track performance, it comes as little surprise that the interior is very minimalist. For starters, there are prototype-style butterfly doors and seats that are fixed in position. While the cabin appears quite cramped, Top Gear’s Ollie Kew says he is a big fan of the seating position and also likes the oddly-shaped steering wheel, noting that it fits perfectly in your hands.
Praga intends on building just 89 examples of the Bohema, each starting at a cool $1.31 million, with deliveries expected to kick off in the second half of 2023.
