Summary of the fastest cars in the world – Part 1

by Tam Nguyen

Whether it’s accelerating time from 0 to 96 km / h or reaching top speed, these are the fastest cars in the world at the moment, and even for the foreseeable future.

Mankind has been fascinated by speed for millennia. Barefoot races in ancient Greece and horse races in Rome gave rise to speed competition, and things just kept evolving over time. But it was not until the first cars emerged from garages across Europe that the human journey to speed really took off.

Today, almost any car can reach speeds of 160 km / h and most family sedans will easily cross 190 km / h. Meanwhile, high-performance cars typically have top speeds of between 225 and 275 km / h. But our need for speed goes beyond that.

The 320 km / h mark for a production car has now turned to 480 km / h, as car manufacturers try to add more power, smarter aerodynamics and start adopting electric motors, all both are aimed at running faster. Below, we’ll take a look at all of the fastest cars on the planet, including currently in production or expected to roll off the assembly line in the near future.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300 2020

Top speed: 489 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: 2.3 seconds
Horsepower: 1,600 horsepower
Torque: 1,600 Nm
Price: 3.9 million USD

Bugatti is the leading brand of supercars at the moment, constantly looking to increase performance from a particular engine. Their 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 has shocked many in the Veyron and Veyron Super Sport, but this monster engine stands on an entirely different level in the new Chiron Super Sport 300. With 1,600 hp and 1,600 Nm of peak torque, this most expensive Chiron can hit 96 km / h in 2.3 seconds, and as the name suggests, it can accelerate over 300 mph (480 km / h). In an official test, Bugatti recorded up to 489 km / h.

Top speed: 531 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: unknown
Horsepower: 1,600 horsepower
Torque: 1,500 Nm
Price: 2.8 million USD

Koenigsegg is clearly the man who makes crazy supercars, and Jesko Absolut is the latest example. But while most of the other models on this list have reached real top speeds, the 531 km / h here is just theoretical, and practically no Jesko Absolut has yet. speed like that. With 1,600 hp and 1,500 Nm of peak torque from a 5.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine and a smooth body that still provides considerable downforce, the Swedish monster is worth 2.8 million. This dollar has enough confidence to run at high speed.

Top speed: 500 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: 2.4 seconds
Horsepower: 1,817 horsepower
Torque: 1,617 Nm
Price: 1.8 million USD

Super high speeds are not exclusive to Europe. The crazy car enthusiasts at Hennessey Performance Engineering in Texas also know how to build a speed monster. While the old Lotus Elise-based Venom GT will run up to 428 km / h, Hennessey claims the upcoming Venom F5 will pass 500 km / h, thanks to its 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8, producing 1,817 horsepower. force and 1,617 Nm of maximum torque. Although priced lower than some European competitors, starting at $ 1.8 million, Hennessey only plans to produce 24 units.

Top speed: 508 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: 2.5 seconds
Horsepower: 1,750 horsepower
Torque: 1,735 Nm
Price: 1.9 million USD

It’s not clear if the SSC Tuatara 2021 will help the US company win the Guinness World Record for the fastest production car, but it certainly owns the title of the biggest controversial car in 2020. As previously reported. , the car did a two-way run and hit an average speed of 508 km / h – but just weeks later rumors popped up that telemetry data and footage set a record. does not match.

Aston Martin Valkyrie 2021

Top speed: over 400 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: 2.5 seconds
Horsepower: 1,160 horsepower
Torque: 900 Nm
Price: 3 million USD

Aston Martin never really got into the hypercar arena, and instead the British brand contented itself with building great and beautiful grand tourers. So the Valkyrie is an interesting change, and it is the result of Aston Martin’s partnership with Formula 1 partner, Red Bull Racing, to build a world-class hypercar. Valkyrie is equipped with a naturally aspirated V12 engine derived from Cosworth and a hybrid system to produce 1,160 hp and 900 Nm of maximum torque, but the special feature is not only that. The engine has an extremely high speed, with a red line up to 11,000 rpm.

McLaren Speedtail 2021

Top speed: 402 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: 2.9 seconds
Horsepower: 1,036 horsepower
Torque: 1,150 Nm
Price: 2 million USD

More than almost any other brand on this list, McLaren knows about making record-breaking supercars. The legendary F1 model held the record for more than two decades, until the arrival of the Bugatti Veyron. The new McLaren Speedtail won’t reclaim F1’s record with a top speed of 402 km / h, but this $ 2 million, 1,036-hp hypercar could be considered the most beautiful car on the list. Anyway, 402 km / h is an impressive enough excess speed, as well as the ability to accelerate from 0-96 km / h in 2.9 seconds.

Mercedes-AMG One 2022

Top speed: 349 km / h
Time 0-96 km / h: 2.6 seconds estimated

This “secret weapon” is equipped with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine, three electric motors, and a total output of over 1,000 horsepower (or more). Although Mercedes did not say how much torque is, but one can assume it is very large. In addition, the car has a top speed expected of 349 km / h and can reach speed of 60 in about 2.6 seconds.
