This is the new Naran Hyper Coupe, a 1,000-hp hypercar made by a British supercar maker called Naran Automotive.

Like other modern supercars, it looks more like an elegant coupe than a track-focused monster.

But unlike most 1,000-horsepower hypercars these days, power comes entirely from an old-school V8.

There’s no electric power involved at all.

The car was first announced years ago but the company has only shared more details, and more images, now.

An old-school V8

Very little information has been provided regarding the powertrain.

However, we do know power will come from a 5-liter V8, and the car will produce at least 1,000 horsepower.

There’s no mention of electric aid at all, so we’re assuming the car is powered by an internal combustion engine, not a hybrid system.

Here’s why it might look familiar to some

The hypercar loosely resembles the newly-launched Aston Martin Valiant or even some Ferraris.

It looks like a grand tourer, or a coupe, rather than a ‘hardcore’ supercar.

Interestingly, it looks nothing like the Apollo Intensa Emozione or the DeTomaso P72.

We say that because it was designed by Ameerh and Jowyn Wong of WYN Design, who penned both the Apollo and the P72.

Just like the engine, the cabin also looks a bit old school, in that there’s no visible massive infotainment screen.

It might be old school, but with buttons and switches and no screen, but it’s hardly subtle.

The purple upholstery is leather and suede, decorated with flower motifs and further adorned with accents in gold.

Naran hypercar future availability

Pricing is yet to be confirmed, but it’ll be a seven-figure sum, and the number won’t start with a ‘1’.

Production is capped at 39 units, with deliveries expected for 2025.

One last thing.

Naran said each customer will be able to pick a name for their car.

Now that’s something you don’t hear every day.

However, for the expected level of outlay, perhaps you should get to name the car.
