When asked, "what is the fastest car in the world?" what would you say? Sportswomen become so sharp these days that they dethrone themselves at the speed of light. Finally, to date, we can still establish a ranking. Auto Plus looked into the subject and made the list of thermal cars with the highest maximum speed. Out of 10 cars selected, only one did not reach the fateful 400 km / h mark …
The queen in top speed is the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. In 2019, it offered a peak at 490 km / h (the famous 300-mile bar) on the Ehra-Lessien oval in Germany … It is one of the few routes to allow manufacturers to reach such crazy speeds. It was Andy Wallace, winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans and official test driver for Bugatti, who tamed the 1600 hp of the racing car at this pace. "It is hard to believe that a car can reach such a speed," he said. In video, it's completely crazy!
What are the other highlights in the ranking?
If Bugatti managed to classify 4 others of its models in the Top 10, the 2nd most represented manufacturer is … Swedish! It's Koenigsegg. With its Agera, the manufacturer is in a good place in this list. He can even boast of getting on the 2nd step of the podium with the RS version of his sports car. In 2018, the 1,383 hp model reached 447 km / h. A performance performed on a road from Nevada, to the United States. At the time, Koenigssegg was proud to have broken the Bugatti speed record obtained in 2010 (and not 2015 as shown in the video).
The podium is completed by an American car: the Venom GT. This creation of the Texan preparer, Hennessey, reached a v-max of 434 km / h. But what could give Bugatti and Koenigsegg some cold sweats is the Venom F5. With its 1600 hp twin-turbo V8 (and less than 1400 kg on the scale), the Venom F5 displays outstanding performance. Its creator John Hennessey, would also like his racing car to pass 500 km / h "That is to say, at 311 mph and dust".
