The name ‘Praga Bohema’ might not seem overly familiar, but Praga has actually been making cars for 115 years.
The Czech automaker only began making race cars 12 years ago, though – and only a handful of those were fitted with license plates.
The Praga Bohema is therefore the company’s first road-legal hypercar.

So, what’s all the fuss about?
Firstly, the price – a cool $1.35 million is how much you’ll have to fork out to own one.

Then there’s what’s under the hood – a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V6.
Sounds a bit underwhelming, but it’s actually the same engine Nissan has been using in all of its GT-R models since 2007.
Litchfield Motors has gone to town tuning the life out of it, too.
Praga hopes that the production car will deliver 700 bhp at and 725 Nm of torque.
Litchfield is known for building 1,000 bhp-plus engines from the GT-R unit, so it’ll be interesting to see what actually comes of it.
Oh, and it’s lightweight – sub-1,000 kilogrammes lightweight.
In the right hands, it’s capable of extreme high performance on track (top speed just over 300 km/h) targeting GT3 race car lap times on its semi-slick Pirellis.
The carmaker also claims it’s comfortable and practical for road trips.
Let’s face it, most people will drive it straight to the circuit, but it’s the thought that counts right?
On a serious note, Praga said it was important for it to design a car that’s comfortable enough for large adults.
That’s why it features adjustable seats, steering wheel, pedals, and more.
It even has storage for your phone and water bottles, as well as air conditioning for when the temperature rises.

Production of the $1.35 million hypercar is scheduled to begin in the Czech Republic in the second half of 2023.
Just 89 examples will be available, reflecting the 89th anniversary of Praga’s historic 1933 road race victory.
