A new prototype hypercar made its debut at Le Mans last month, and it just about slipped through the ongoing fanfare at the time. Enter the Boreas, a mid-engined hybrid with the promise of over 1,000 hp and all-wheel drive. Its name comes from Greek mythology; Boreas was a Greek god of the North Wind, fathering 12 colts after taking the form of a stallion.

In keeping with the storyline, DSD Design & Motorsport will produce just 12 cars which are “individually designed yet related,” though it isn’t clear if it will be 12 variants of the Boreas or otherwise. Details have yet to emerge regarding the car’s powertrain, chassis, or other components, though it is said to have a ‘targeted’ top speed of 378 km/h, and a 0-96 km/h time of under three seconds.

What we do know is that the four-figure output will be sent through a seven-speed automated manual transmission, and the all-wheel drivetrain is complemented by a pure EV capability which drives the front axle, and has an electric-only range of 100 km. From the images, the Boreas can be seen to employ a lot of carbon-fibre in its construction, and the shape itself is of the classic mid-engined kind.

In front it has a relatively short nose and deep windscreen which should offer good forward visibility, while its doors are fitted with what appears to be stalks for rear-view cameras. Around the back, a circular tail lamp on each side is bridged by a slim red strip, while beneath those are a pair of angular, 570S-aping exhausts.

The Boreas has a start of production target set for December this year, in left-hand-drive. It’s rarefied air an automaker is heading towards when upwards of 1,000 hp is touted; how do you think the Boreas sits with the Italian, British, German, and Swedish establishments, among others?
