A new hypercar brand founded by celebrated automotive designer Sasha Selipanov is set to make its public debut next month at the prestigious Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in Monterey, California.

Nilu27, co-founded by Selipanov and his wife Inna, plans to unveil its first vehicle—the striking V12-powered NILU hypercar—during Monterey Car Week in August. The company takes its name from a combination of the founders’ daughters’ names, Nica and Lucia.

The NILU represents Selipanov’s vision to redefine the sports car experience by prioritizing emotional engagement and sensory stimulation over an overemphasis on technology alone.

Nilu27 aims to redefine the sports car experience by prioritizing emotional engagement and sensory stimulation over an overemphasis on technology. The company focuses on exploring the DNA of what defines a sports car, emphasizing beauty and brutal performance.

Selipanov brings over two decades of elite automotive design pedigree to Nilu27. His acclaimed work includes the Lamborghini Huracán, Bugatti Chiron, Koenigsegg Gemera and Koenigsegg CC850 among others.

Inna Selipanov, who has extensive marketing and business development experience, including previous collaborations with her husband at Genesis and Koenigsegg, serves as the company’s co-founder.

The NILU hypercar, a concept Selipanov has developed since 2007, will feature a naturally aspirated V12 engine aimed at delivering a visceral, analog driving experience. It represents a rejection of the performance car segment’s increasing reliance on hybrid and electric powertrains.

“One of my most vivid childhood memories was seeing Gilles Villeneuve’s #27 F1 car powersliding,” Selipanov recalled. “I instantly fell in love with that visceral, beautiful beast. This passion culminated in Nilu27.”

Following a private unveiling to insiders in early August, the NILU hypercar will make its global public debut on August 15th during Monterey Car Week at the prestigious Pebble Beach Golf Course.

It will then be displayed at various events throughout the week, including a featured exhibition on the Concept Lawn at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on August 17-18.
