Always more beautiful, always more efficient, always faster. Sports cars never cease to draw stars in the eyes of young and old alike. Since the construction of the first fast car (the Bugatti Type 41 Royale, which appeared in the 1920s that could climb up to 200 km/h), the speedometer has never stopped rising.
Today, many legendary brands tickle the law of gravity. In 2022, the fastest cars in the world are breaking the records and reinventing our dream of driving ever faster.
As the capital of the most luxurious and exotic vehicles, you can buy or sell your car in UAE, no matter how fast, powerful, or even vintage it is.
Car makers spend big money to develop cars with high acceleration and great engine power. They want their products to be on top in the race for the fastest car title.
- Bugatti Veyron
The Bugatti brand has produced some of the fastest and most luxurious vehicles ever built. Their name came from founder Ettore Bugatti who wanted to build something that would go faster than anyone else. They had great publicity in the 1970s with their four-wheel-drive models and have continued producing top speed records since then.
The Bugatti Veyron is for racers who want to experience extreme speeds. Its top speed exceeded 400 km/h (186 mph), and it enjoys fast acceleration from 0 to 100 in less than 3 seconds. Other notable features include carbon fiber seats, 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, and a special paint job.
2. McLaren Speedtail
McLaren has become an iconic brand known for producing exceptional performance vehicles such as the P1 roadster and F1 racing cars. In 2017, they released their latest model, Speedtail, which offers buyers a taste of what their future cars might look like.
This German masterpiece has a top speed of 402 km/h and has a hybrid engine that combines a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 petrol engine and an electric motor. It has the fastest acceleration among supercars.
3. Koenigsegg Agera RS
In 2017, the Swedish company Koenigsegg took back the title of the fastest car in the world with its Koenigsegg Agera RS, an upgrade of the old Agera R model.
The top speed is 400 km/h, but the braking system is so powerful that it can stop this beast in less than 4 seconds. The price is over $2 million and there are only 25 copies of the Agera RS which helped skyrocket the car price.
Weirdly enough, there is an abandoned Koenigsegg that is estimated to be worth $6 million according to the value of the car, with rust on it. What a waste!
To keep the car stable at those high speeds, the team had to install special shock absorbers and double the power of the engine.
4. Bugatti Chiron
No matter what other brands take the “fastest car” title, Bugatti will always find a way around to take it back. The Bugatti Chiron stole the spotlight with its tremendous advancements and improvements like modifying the aerodynamics of the vehicle chassis and changing the transmission system.
Its new quad-turbo engine, Centodieci, made it possible to reach an incredible speed of 490 km/h. Not to mention that only 30 units are available globally.
5. SSC Tuatara
Many companies tried to break the record for the fastest car in the world belonging to Bugatti (490 km/h), but it was difficult and almost impossible, until the fastest American car, the SSC Tuatara, appeared and could snatch the title of the fastest car in the world from Bugatti deservedly.
The SSC Tuatara exceeded its previous performance records by exceeding a speed of 400 km/h, beating the previous world record holder car, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport which had reached only 385 km/h. It was this kind of success that made the SSC Tuatara a true American legend.
Then this American beast, built by the team at Hendrick Motorsports, has gone beyond 500 mph. It broke the previous record for speed set by Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in 2011. It took just 3:45 minutes to reach its top speed, beating the previous record by 1 minute and 23 seconds.
