Who doesn't love pushing their car to the maximum, once in a while, when you see an open stretch of road, asking to rev the engine as hard as possible. But, most of us can't match the speed of certain Sportscar, atleast not by our regular hatch or sedan. But then comes our list of Supercars, or Hypercars, which even normal Sportscar can't come close by.
So, here we are presenting top 10 fastest cars!
1. Hennessey Venom GT: 435 km/h
Many consider it to be the unofficial fastest car of the world, doing 0-100 kmph in 2.5 seconds, but what's achieved by Hennessey, can't be taken from it. This U.S based manufacturer produces car so fast, that to achieve the a top speed of 435 kmph, it requires an engine as huge as a 7.0 litre LS7 Turbocharged V8 Twin Turbo unit producing enormous 1244 hp. The test run, done at the NASA runaway produced a staggering result of 435 kmph, which was limited due to the length of the track, about 5 km. But all this comes at a whopping price of $1,000,000 and up.
2. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: 431 km/h
Bugatti will always be remembered as the first car in the world to cross the 400kmph mark. But the dominance of the this Supersports was challenged by the SSC Ultimate Aero in 2007, which Bugatti eventually regained with their Veyron Super Sports, reaching a top speed of 431kmph. Bugatti remained the fastest car for three continuous years, before losing out to our No.1 in the list. Bugatti Super Sports, as against its younger sibling, produces 1200 hp and touches 0-100 kmph in 2.4 secs. The engine it houses under the hood is the famous aluminum made, 8 litre W16 unit and is priced at $2,400,000.
3. Koenigsegg Agera R: 418 km/h
Many say that if Agera R is to be pitted against the Bugatti Veyrona and Hennessey, it will beat them hands down. But the official speed recorded for this hypercar is 418kmph. It does 0-100 kmph in 2.9 secs and houses a 5.0 litre V8 engine with twin turbo’s, producing 1099 hp. This Sweden base manufacturer is the direct rival of Bugatti, priced at $1,600,000.
4. SSC Ultimate Aero: 413 km/h
SSC or Shelby Supercars, as is the original name, is the first car to challenge the dominance of Bugatti, when way back in 2007, they entered the Guinness World Records, to be the fastest production car ever, for three years. The SSC Ultimate Aero does 0-100 kmph in 2.7 secs and has a Twin-Turbo V8 Engine under the hood, that produces 1183 hp and comes at a base price of $654,400.
