For someone, a car is a luxury, for someone it is a means of transportation, and for someone, a car is associated with racing and speed. And since we are talking about speed, it would be right to talk about the fastest sports cars in the world, because there are many of them and everyone is fighting to get the title of the fastest. In order not to offend any of the sports car manufacturers and not to make modest ratings of three or five cars, we will talk about the ten best ones that are worthy of attention. Let's go!
Opens the list of the fastest sports cars British car Noble M600 from Noble Automotive. This model was introduced in 2010 and is produced to this day. Buyers can choose from as many as 3 different modifications of the car: road, for track races and fully racing. The first 2 are not of particular interest, but thanks to the third version, the car andhit today's Top.
Noble M600 is capable of speeds up to 362 km/h. Acceleration to hundreds is 3.1 sec. Gearbox mechanical 6 speeds. As for the engine, there is an 8-cylinder V8 with a volume of 4.4 liters. Vehicle weight - 1275 kg.
Ninth place in the ranking of the fastest sports cars is rightfully occupied by the Pagani Huayra. This model replaced the legendary Zonda in 2011 and is still in production. The brainchild of Italian engineers has very impressive characteristics. The body is almost entirely made of carbon fiber. As an engine, a motor from Mercedes-Benz is installed, which has been significantly modified in order to "squeeze" the maximum out of it. The engine capacity is 6 liters, the number of cylinders is 12. The engine power is over 700 liters. s., and the torque exceeds 1000 Nm. Car weight - 1350 kg.
Well, now the most interesting thing is the numbers, thanks to which the model got into our Top. The maximum speed of the Huayra is 370 km/h. Acceleration to 100 km / h is carried out in 3.3 seconds, and, according to the manufacturer, this is an indicator on a wet road surface, so the figure may be slightly different on dry pavement.
Continues the ranking of the fastest sports cars car called Zenvo TS1 or, as the creators themselves call it, Sleipnir. Few people have heard of the Danish automobile company Zenvo Automotive, however, it already exists.a long time ago, since 2004. During its history, Zenvo engineers have already managed to release their first “swallow” ST1, which often got into the Tops of fast cars, but now it’s not about her. In 2014, for the company's 10th anniversary, Zenvo introduced the new TS1, which is essentially an improved version of the ST1.
Zenvo TS1 received a new, more powerful 6-liter 8-cylinder engine and twin turbocharging. The top speed of the car is electronically limited to 375 km/h. Acceleration to hundreds is only 3 seconds. Vehicle weight - 1580 kg. Most of the body parts are made of ultra-strong carbon fiber.
Another interesting fact about the car: TS1 instrument and switch bezels are made of pure copper and rhodium. The cost of such a frame, according to the manufacturer, is 189 thousand euros (14.3 million rubles), which is comparable in price to a brand new Porsche 911 R.
Seventh place in the ranking of the fastest sports cars in the world went to a real legend - McLaren F1. And although the model was produced from 1992 to 1998, it still remains the most powerful of all that McLaren has released. Even the modern McLaren P1 cannot compete with the F1.
The motor of the car is a real monster with 12 cylinders of 6 liters. Surprisingly, the power of the engine is not as impressive as most modern sports cars - only 627 hp. With. However, this does not prevent the F1 from accelerating to 100 km / h in 3.3 seconds, as well as reaching a top speed of 391 km / h. Weightcar is 1140 kg. The body is made of carbon fiber and aluminum, in fact, like most other parts.
It is worth noting a few interesting features of the car, namely that the steering wheel and seat are located in the center, and the engine compartment, along with the cover, is completely covered with pure gold in order to ensure better heat reflectivity.
As for the price of the McLaren F1, at the moment the car can be purchased for more than $15 million (1 billion rubles), and every year the price tag is only growing.
In sixth place in the Top of the fastest sports cars is the first Lebanese long-term construction (6 years of development) - Lykan Hypersport. The car has been produced since 2013 to the present, and exclusively, to order. And although the model is considered the development of Lebanese engineers, French and Italian colleagues helped them to create a supercar.
Now briefly on the characteristics. The engine, at first glance, is not impressive in the car - only 3.7 liters in volume, six cylinders, boxer type of structure, twin turbocharging. However, the developers managed to squeeze the maximum out of the engine, bringing its power to 750 hp. With. The acceleration time of the car to hundreds takes 2.8 seconds. And the maximum speed reaches 395 km / h. Vehicle weight - 1200 kg.
Of the interesting features, it is worth noting the presence of expensive materials in the interior trim, for example, titanium, leather, carbon fiber, etc. In addition, one cannot fail to mention the uniquelighting elements, namely LEDs with precious stones, stitching with gold thread and 3D holographic displays.
The first half of the ranking is over, it remains to consider 5 of the 10 fastest sports cars in the world. The fifth line goes to the car from Lotec - Lotec Sirius. Far from everyone knows the Lotec automobile company, rather, only a few have even heard of it, although it has existed for a long time. The idea to create a supercar among German engineers first appeared in 1992, but due to financial difficulties, their idea was never implemented. The idea was still not deleted, but simply postponed until better times.
In 2001, for the first time, a completely finished Sirius prototype was presented to the public. The body was made mainly of carbon fiber. The engine used was a unit from Mercedes with twin turbocharging, 12 cylinders and a volume of 6.4 liters. Engine power is 1220 liters. With. Acceleration to hundreds is carried out in just 3.8 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 402 km / h.
In 2004, Lotec Sirius was ready for sale, and at that time, the manufacturer asked for a considerable amount for the only released copy - 680 thousand euros (51.6 million rubles). Nobody wanted to spend that kind of money on a car that had no analogues in terms of speed, so Sirius remained in a single version.
Hennessey Venom GT
On the fourth line in the Top 10 fastest sports cars in the world is the Hennessey Venom GT. This model is a creationAmerican company Hennessey Performance Engineering. The sports car was produced from 2010 to 2016, and for all the time 12 copies were created.
Venom GT is equipped with a 7-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 engine with an output of 1451 hp. With. Acceleration to hundreds of cars takes only 2.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 435 km / h. Vehicle weight - 1244 kg.
It's worth saying that the Hennessey Venom GT holds several records. For example, in 2013, a car broke the acceleration record to 300 km / h with an indicator of 13.48 seconds. Also in the same year, the model accelerated to 427 km / h, as a result of which the creators demanded that the Venom be recognized as the fastest car in the world, since their competitor Bugatti Veyron, although it accelerated to 431 km / h, is sold with a speed limiter of up to 415 km / h. h.
Porsche 911 GT9 Vmax
So we got to the top three. In third place is Porsche's fastest sports car, the 911 GT Vmax. As you know, there are several very serious tuning studios that build supercars from Porsche cars. The most famous of them are Ruf and 9ff. Specifically, in this case, we will talk about the creation of the company 9ff.
In 2012, 9ff engineers took a finished Porsche 911 from the past generation to work and decided to turn it into a real supercar. The first step was to replace and substantially modified the car engine. Vmax received an aggregate with a volume4.2 liters, the power of which is an amazing 1381 hp. With. Even the legendary French car Bugatti Veyron can envy such a unit. To 100 km / h Vmax accelerates in 3.1 seconds, and the maximum speed easily reaches 437 km / h. The mass of the car is 1340 kg.
The second place in the ranking rightfully belongs to SSC Tuatara. Many have been waiting for the return of the SSC brand to the supercar market, and now, finally, they have waited. The Tuatara was first introduced to China in 2011 as a prototype. The first serial copy saw the world in 2014. Serial production continues to this day.
The motor of the car has a volume of 7 liters, double turbocharging, 8 cylinders and is made almost entirely of aluminum. Engine power is 1350 "horses". Acceleration to 100 km / h takes 2.5 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 443 km / h. Car weight - 1247 kg.
Well, and finally, the first place - Bugatti Chiron. Today, as auto developers assure, this is the fastest sports car in the world. The model is produced from 2016 to the present. The Chiron starts at about 2.5 million euros (189 million rubles), and not in the top-end configuration.
Here is a photo of the fastest sports car.
Now a little about the characteristics. The car is equipped with a 16-cylinder engine with 4 turbochargers and two-stage supercharging. Engine volumeis 8 liters, and the power is 1500 liters. With. Acceleration to hundreds of Chiron takes only 2.4 seconds. As for the maximum speed, it is electronically limited to 420 km / h, but according to the developers, the real speed without limitation is able to overcome the bar of 460 km / h. The car also weighs a lot - 1995 kg.
It is also worth noting that Bugatti engineers plan to set a world speed record on the Chiron model this year, so you should follow the news from the world of cars more closely!
