The mastermind behind the Greek Super Car with the name CHAOS

When the plans for the project of the first Greek Super Car named CHAOS were made public, the news hit the automotive world like a thunderbolt and the name of Spyros Panopoulos was written many times in the special field of internet search engines. In reality, however, the name of Spyros Panopoulos has been associated with 4 wheels for many years.

He was born on October 9, 1978 in Athens, Greece. From a very young age, he liked the technology and speed of the car. His field of study was computer programming and the development of applied software and hardware solutions.

After completing his studies, in 1997 he founded his company based in Greece. His main activity was the programming and mapping of production cars for power increase. A year later, he acquired his first car dynamometer, which helped in the development of new applications. Very soon, his unquenchable passion for speed led him to the field of Rally and other motor sports such as climbing, speed and dragster racing as well as motorcycle racing.

Always following his natural inclination towards technology and speed, he managed in 2005 to acquire his own design and production unit with high-performance, state-of-the-art components for internal combustion engines, applying metallurgy and materials engineering to his research and development.

Through his own components, he managed to write his name in the record books after achieving the world’s best acceleration performance in a four-cylinder four-wheel drive car, a Mitsubishi Evo 9, with a 7.7-second time and an exit speed of 308 km/h at 402 meters. The car has been developed by him.

At the same time, Spyros Panopoulos with his expertise has also contributed to the military sector, where he has been involved in the research and development of innovative, more durable and higher performance drones.

With all this knowledge and experience at his disposal, in 2019 he decided to build his own exclusively designed and built supercar, the Chaos.

The first estimate when he unveiled the project to the public was that by March 2022, the Greek supercar would be on the market, however, by early 2024, this has not happened.

In fact, the Spyros Panopoulos Automotive group hinted at two versions of the car. The Zero Gravity version of 3,000 horsepower with a purchase cost that would have reached 12.4 million euros, while there was also the more “affordable” Earth Version where for 5.5 million euros it would have been possible to acquire a car with a horsepower of 2,000 (and more) horsepower, with incredible potential.

The difficulties that the Greek creator has encountered are many, but this does not mean -according to him- that the project has stopped.

A lot has been written at times and it is reasonable to wonder if we will see it on the road and not just in mock-ups. The truth is that a vehicle like this being built for the first time has a lot of contingencies, especially when most of the construction is done on 3d printers. In short, the CHAOS construction continues as normal.

He even released a new picture of the car and made many wonder what they were looking at. The eccentric lines of the car gave birth to this question which we answer having addressed to Spyros Panopoulos himself.

The image captures the front of the car as seen from the driver’s seat. In the centre you can see the titanium suspensions, which have been made on a 3d printer, cost tens of thousands of euros and we may not have seen anything similar on any other car (unless we missed it).

Another feature that’s hard to tell by looking at this photo is the mirrors. Both the driver’s and the passenger’s are digital and the cameras are integrated in a special construction that can be seen on the right and left of the Super Car.
