Hold My Ouzo and Meet Greece's First Hand-Built Passenger Car, the Super K

A company from Greece prides itself on having concluded all the steps necessary to homologate a passenger car that is hand-built in the country. Yesterday, the Keraboss Super K became Greece's first hand-built passenger car constructed entirely in the country, and it received a set of definitive license plates during a special event.

The delivery of license plates that are not for testing purposes or temporary use marks the type approval of that model, and they are supposed to be valid in any country in the European Union, by default. In other words, someone could take a Keraboss Super K and drive it across Europe if they wanted to.

The folks over at Keraboss requested their first application for their manufacturing and type approval back in 2016, Greekreporter notes. Last year, Greece's Finance Ministry's Customs Administration set the related duties and fees for the vehicles, while the first marketing licenses were issued this year.

The resulting vehicle, dubbed Super K, has achieved the M1 type approval. In other words, it is meant to transport passengers and their luggage and has at least four wheels.

If it had been smaller, lighter, and with limited engine power, it could have been a quadricycle, which would have received the L6e or L7e homologation. In other words, it is a car in its own right. Its platform is not described, and the same can be said about every technical specification regarding the vehicle.

For the moment, it is unclear how much a Keraboss Super K costs, what kind of power it offers, and when the first units will be delivered. Things will probably start at a local level first, and exports will be handled once the daily output reaches a sufficient level to enable such feats.

The representatives of the vehicle manufacturer claim that the product will offer "a completely different and exciting lifestyle, freedom, youthfulness, and driving pleasure." The company is bold enough to claim that the Super K "fulfills every buyer's profile, offering alternative ways of satisfaction."

While we have yet to come close to the finished product, we beg to differ on the latter claim, as not everyone wants a two-door pick-up truck or small SUV. With that in mind, one cannot help but imagine what it would be like to rent one of these on a vacation in Greece.
