How fast have you driven? 100mph? But, some cars can even reach the speed of 300mph. Can you believe it? Believe, or not some cars are that powerful. When it comes to sports cars, the numbers always matter. All car manufacturers are competing to achieve the fastest of all trophy. But only the best of the best are capable of reaching that goal. So, let’s find what the fastest car in the world is?
What is the fastest car in the world?
Okay, when it comes to the fastest record, it is not a car available in the market hold that record. According to the Guinness world records book, a car named thurst SSC holds the worlds fastest land vehicle record. The Thurst SSC reached a speed of 1227 kilometres per hour which is nearly 770 miles per hour. Can you believe that speed? But, the developers of thurst SSC proved that it is possible. Thrust was designed with the help of world famous rolls Royce company. It is powered with two strongly capable Rolls Royce Spey engines. Looks like a jet, its special design allows it to reach the top speed with the help of aerodynamics.
Approximately thurst has a power of one hundred thousand in horsepowers. And it burns 16 litres of fuel per second. This kind of supercar is no match for the roads. No one can run a car in 770mph in the normal roads. So, thurst is not available to buy in the market. It is made just for the record. But there are supercars you can buy — supercars which have less fuel consumption and controllable speed.
Worlds fastest sports car – Bugatti Chiron Super Sport
For a very long time, Bugatti is holding the worlds fastest sports car trophy. Bugatti Chiron supersport is the latest and the fastest supercar available in the market. It has recorded a top speed of 204 miles per hour. Chiron is manufactured in the Molsheim, France by the French car manufacturer Bugatti. It has a quad-turbocharged eight-litre w16 engine. Chiron is powered with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It has a power of nearly 1500 in horsepowers. (Which is 1,100kWs). If you are rich enough, you can buy a Chiron at the price of 3.9 million US dollars.
Hennessey Venom F5
Hennessey Venom F5 has a recorded speed of 301 miles per hour. Just 3mph behind the Chiron, Venom F5 just has a 6.6 litres twin-turbocharged v8 engine. (That is 1.4 litres less than the Chiron). This super cool supercar is manufactured by the famous American car manufacturing company Hennessey. Venom f5 comes in two different transmissions. A single clutch seven-speed semi-automatic version and an optional six-speed manual version. Venom is a two-door coupe car, and it has a very smart and modern look. Comparing to the Bugatti’s Chiron Venom f5 is very inexpensive. It cost 1.6 million US dollars which are 2.3 million less than the Chiron’s price.
Developed by SSC or from the world-famous American car manufacturer Shelby super cars Tuatara can reach a top speed of 300 miles per hour. When it was made for the first time, the SSC demanded that the Tuatara can reach just 265mph. But when it came to the race track Tuatara showed a mind-blowing performance reaching 300mph. Tuatara is a brand new design that started its production in 2019. Tutra has the latest modern aerodynamic body made of fiber glass. It has a very powerful 5.9 litres a twin-turbocharged v8 engine. Also, it has a power output of 1750 horsepowers. However, the Tutara just cost 1.3 million US dollars. That is very less for a car of its kind.
