Koenigsegg Agera RS: 447.2 km / h
Hennessey Venom GT: 435.3 km / h
The second position of the fastest cars in the world is for the Hennessey Venom GT. This company, known for its models from other brands such as Ford and Chevrolet, has managed to put one of its creations on this list. The Venom GT is actually a Lotus Exige modified from top to bottom.
The engine of this car is a 7.0-liter biturbo V8 with 1,471 hp, which is associated with a six-speed manual gearbox. Specifications that are even more impressive considering that its total weight is only 1,244 kg. No more units will be made, so Hennessey released the Venom GT Final Edition as a farewell to this model (pictured above). The Hennessey Venon F5 is the coach’s next model, although it has yet to prove on the asphalt that it can exceed the 450 km / h announced by the house.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: 431 km / h
The third position of the cars with the highest top speed is for the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. This car holds Bugatti’s internal speed record, even though the Chiron has been in production for some time. Its engine is an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 with 1,200 hp. As usual at these power levels, all these horses are transmitted to sleep thanks to all-wheel drive. The specialists at Royalty Exotic Cars have already taught us what happens when you convert this car into a rear wheel drive.
SSC Ultimate Aero: 411.7 km / h
The Shelby Super Cars Ultimate Aero achieved its current record of 411.7 km / h in 2007. Speed that today keeps it in fourth position on this list. At that time, its 6.3-liter V8 engine and three turbos produced 1,183 hp. Which added to its low weight made of carbon fiber made it a real missile.
In 2011 Shelby Super Cars increased its power to 1,305 hp, retouched its body and announced a top speed of 439 km / h. However, the manufacturer never managed to back up that number with facts and this list is only for cars that have proven their capabilities.
Saleen S7 Twin Turbo: 399 km / h
We finish this list with the sub 400 km / h with the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo. A car that was launched in 2000 with a 7.0 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine and 575 hp of power. These specifications left it very far from being able to enter this list. However, in 2004 it received two turbos that increased its power to 750 hp, and that allowed it to go from 322 km / h of the first version, to 399 km / h. This puts it firmly in the list of the top 5 fastest cars in 2021.
