Nilu27 hypercar’s V12 engine is made in New Zealand

Ex-Koenigsegg designer Sasha Selipanov has built his own hypercar called the Nilu27. It is powered by a naturally aspirated V12 engine, and no, it’s not Italian.

In fact, the engine powering the Nilu27 hypercar is made in New Zealand. It has been developed and manufactured by Hartley Engines. In a blog post, Nelson Hartley, Owner and Head of Design/R&D at Hartley Engines, said, “…there has been an even bigger project we have been working on and a very time-consuming one at that. We have partnered with a rock star of the car design world, and are building our own engine from scratch, most of the design and development is done, but there is still a lot of work to do.”

He goes on to add, “I can’t say too much about it just yet, but over the coming weeks and months we will start to release more information. It will, hands down, be the coolest project we have ever done, and perhaps one of the coolest projects ever done (in our opinions anyway).

Our internal design brief for the new engine is, ‘Be cool as F##K’.”

As you might have guessed, little is known about the new powerplant. All we know is that the NA V12 will have a hot-V configuration. It means the exhaust manifold will be nestled between the two banks of cylinders.

The Nilu27 hypercar will be revealed at Pebble Beach next month.
