It would be insane to call Ferraris and Lamborghinis imperfect supercars, but when we are talking about buyers who have countless millions at their disposal, exclusivity of these iconic models might be an issue. Therefore, boutique carmakers with single digit production numbers can still thrive and keep delivering unique supercars that we might not ever see in real life. In this episode of Automotive Territory we will cover the newest models among these unicorns.

A rundown of all models that were shown in this #AT_New_Cars video:
00:42 Niels van Roij Design Breadvan Hommage
Count Giovanni Volpi hired the engineer Giotto Bizzarrini to modify a 250 GT SWB Competition into a one-of-a-kind aerodynamically superior unit. In 2021 the Dutch design studio of Niels van Roij is paying homage to this oddity with a fully-rebodied one off coachbuilding Breadvan Hommage commission.
01:52 Ares Project S1
The Modena-based coachbuilder Ares Design is steadily expanding its fleet of original vehicles, so this year the limited production Project S1 is being joined by a Spyder version. The two share the same low profile and forward-sitting cabin, and boast all carbon fiber bodywork with a low splitter and large curvy wheel arches.

Fueled by the enthusiasm and surely finances of Laurent Tapie, a passionate racer, CEO and founder of the reinvigorated enterprise, the Delage D12 is envisioned as a radical hypercar with a 30 units limited production.
04:01 Hongqi S9
Though created by a former VW designer Walter Da Silva, the Hongqi S9 hybrid supercar is claimed to be the real embodiment by the Chinese spirit of innovation. At its heart sits a newly-developed plug-in hybrid drivetrain that reportedly combines efforts of a 4-liter biturbo V8, 3 electric motors and a battery of undisclosed capacity.

This street legal and track-oriented ultralight electric roadster is the first creation of the Barcelona-based startup Baltasar. The Revolt features all carbon fiber bodywork, as well as racing seats and removable steering wheel from the same material.
06:09 Hyperion XP1
Due to the overly ambitious performance numbers and lack of auto manufacturing expertise, this project was originally met with a fair share of skepticism. Nevertheless, the hypercar XP-1 appears to be on track with development.

ARES Design Panther ProgettoUno is finally ready for production in 2021. The model is limited to 21 units, each built on the basis of Lambo Huracan hybrid chassis with a custom carbon-fiber bodywork.
