Surface Transforms: Praga Bohemia Hypercar

Praga will debut its Alcon-equipped road-legal, race car-inspired Bohema hypercar at Alcon’s stand at the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed, all part of the brake company’s 40th anniversary. Alcon’s powerful six-piston calipers are key to the Bohema’s on-track performance that has been tested to the full by Ben Collins on track at the Crowdstrike 24 Hours of Spa program earlier this month.

Another key to the Bohema’s stopping power – which has been highlighted by its test drivers including Romain Grosjean – is its lightweight construction (targeting 982kgs, wet) backed by the Surface Transforms 380mm carbon ceramic brake discs.

The U.K. company, that supplies many of the world’s leading supercar and hypercar manufacturers, provides the ideal combination of lightweight yet durable components, perfectly complimenting the Bohema’s lightweight, high-performance philosophy.

Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) is a manufacturer of next-generation carbon-ceramic brake discs for automotive and aircraft applications and has been certified to IS9001-2000 since 2008 and was certified to TS16949 automotive quality accreditation and AS9100C aerospace quality accreditation in 2015.
