The first record of the highest speeds of hypercars produced by the world’s largest manufacturers was in the 1950s. This was the XK120 from Jaguar, producing 124.6 mph car model. High-speed testing is a trend that carmakers now follow religiously, allowing them to develop new concepts to break old records. These cars are not just fast, they are technologically advanced, skillfully designed and engineering achievements that are an important stage in the automotive industry.
In this article, we have a list of the 10 fastest cars in the world, along with the fastest.
The Bugatti supercar Bolide was first launched in 2020 at 1850 hp. and was released as a concept car with a power output of 1850 Nm. However, the production model is much more limited than the four-turbocharged W-16 engine with 1578 hp. comes with power. Specially designed for the racetrack, the Bolide engine is optimized for only one purpose – Speed. Bugatti has announced plans to build only 40 units of this model. The Bolide design concept is based on the idea of light construction and the experience of rebellious, raw driving. The suction and discharge systems in the car have been cleaned of the throttle and 4 new turbochargers increase power and pressure at high speeds. The top speed was recorded in the concept car at a speed of 500 km / h, and the time to reach a speed of 100 km / h is 2.1 seconds. It is expected that the finished vehicle will weigh about 1,450 kg using titanium and carbon fiber components to reduce the total weight. Delivery will begin in 2024, the cost is currently set at 35.87 kR ($ 47 million).
