Top Five Fastest Modern Cars
Well, what’s the best way to spend $ 2 million or more? If you consider the right answer is “to buy a car”, you are not far away from the truth. The fact is what an exact car you are going to opt for. What could be cooler that a huge hp-vehicle? Only the vehicle you can drive or, more practically, dream about it keeping in mind the pricing tag. So we have compiled a list of the five best and quickest road besties to accelerate 400 kph and even higher.
5. Koenigsegg One: 1
How Fast: Debuted at the 2014 Geneva Motors, the 1,341-hp One: 1 is considered to be the world’s first megacar weighting strongly as much as it features power, with 1:1 ratio. As it is known, the model name arises from this matter logically. Equipped with the Swedish own-built 5.0-litre twin-turbo V8, the Christian von Koenigsegg’s brainchild shows a top speed of 273mph (437kph). However, after testing on the legendary Nürburgring track, the One: 1 could not bear a world record lapping the track with a 7:34 best time.
How Much: Just $6 million and you will get such a prototype built for you.
4. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
How Fast: This honey chile is believed to be the holder of several top speed records. Famously, it set the official speed record in 2010 having accelerated 267.8mph, Guinness-verified (later, the other automotive companies argued the record as the Veyron’s speed limited was removed). However, the 1,244-hp Veyron SS topped out at 25mph with the speed restrictor in place Guinness-verifying the title of the world’s fastest production car.
How Much: around $2.8 million for a production car
3. Vector Avtech WX8 HPRV
How Fast: American-manufactured exotic hypercar, the Vector Avtech WX8 HPRV utilizes the advanced aerospace technology to take performance to the highest level. HPRV stands for Hyper-Performance Road Vehicle; this 3-seater was officially debuted in 2007. From the theoretical perspective, it is believed to be the world fastest production car. Equipped with a 10.0-litre aluminum V8 engine, the 2,000hp-monster developed a top speed of 435 kph (Vector Motors claimed a top speed of 270mph making 0-60 time in 3.3 seconds only). However, since 2014 the project has been small in work.
How Much: Tough to tell. The last price was expected to make around $1.5 million
2. 9FF GT9 Vmax
How Fast: VMax appears to be a modified ultra-modern edition of the 9FF GT9 heavily underpinning the Porsche 911 GT3 base version. Debuted at the 2012 Essen Motor Show, the 1,381hp-brainchild of the German tuning firm 9ff beats Veyron under its performance. Powered by a Porsche 4.2-litre mid-mounted twin-turbo engine, it is claimed to demonstrate a top speed of 272mph (or 437 kph) accelerating 0-62mph time in 3.1 seconds.
How Much: $1,16 million. Well, reasonable.
1. Hennessey Venom GT Spyder
How Fast: Texas-made Hennessey Venom GT Spyder holds officially the title of the world’s fastest open-top sports car. The mind-blowing model by Hennessey Performance revealed a max speed of 427.4 kph (265.6mph) at the California runway beating the Bugatti Veyron SS record, witnessed previously. Equipped with a 7.0-litre twin-turbo V8 power unit, the 1,451-hp Spyder puts 0-60 time in less than 2.4 seconds.
How Much: Around $1.4 million
