Top 5 fastest cars
Speed is a thrill like no other in this world. The many things that come with speed today are amazing because today sitting in any normal car; we can go faster than any creature on this planet. Its just not about speed anymore, it’s about very high speed and the thrill seekers and the carmakers all go to great lengths to make sure that they manage to build the meanest maddest machine there is on the roads out there. Race cars are in a totally different league of their own but so are road cars today with the speeds touching insanity to say the very least.
5. Koenigsegg CCXR:
The CCXR is literally a brother of the CCX and is a little faster. It is also a great sports car to look at as its design is simply irresistible to a sports car lover. It goes form 0-60 in 2.9 seconds and 0-200 n around 9 seconds. The top speed, a staggering 402 kilometers per hour comes from a doubly turbocharged V8 engine.
4. Koenigsegg CCR:
Another one from the Swedes, this car is also one turbocharged monster which also held the world road car speed record briefly with a top speed of 403 kilometers per hour. It is fit with a Ford V8 engine which dishes out around 806 bare horse power and does a 0-60 in around 3.8 seconds.
3. Bugatti Veyron:
This car is amazing in so many ways. It has a top speed of around 408 kilometers per hour and has a W16 turbocharged engine. Only about a few are made and sold each year with some heavy customizations and a handy price tag. It has phenomenal performance which is just not about speed as its braking is also worth noting and looking at.
2. SSC Ultimate Aero:
This car is built by Shelby Supercars which is an American manufacturer. The very high performance car delivers a top speed of around 413 kilometers per hour and was until recently the fastest land road car in the world. The company is currently working on a faster version of the car which will go up to 300 miles per hour, fast indeed.
1. Brabus TKR:
Unbelieve as it may sound, this car can go up to 60 in 1.67 seconds. Yes, that is shorter than the time it takes you to read one line. This car after ten years of production and perfection has finally surfaced with a full carbon fiber body and a V8 turbocharged engine under its hood. The number 2 and the number 3 on this list were believed to have come to stay but this car has managed to put a significant gap of being 20 miles faster than any other road car.
