Fastest cars in the world

For adrenaline junkies and car enthusiasts, nothing beats the rush of driving a supercar. Supercars are automobile marvels that take the need for speed to a whole different level. A number of companies across the globe compete to build the finest beast possible, and it is no wonder that engineering has come so far when it comes to the mind-boggling speeds we are witnessing these days. If you ask an ordinary person which car they think is most likely to be the fastest, they might either say the Ferrari or the Bugatti, but in reality, there are some surprising names that lead the list. Here in this article, we will look at three of the finest and quickest supercars on the planet. 1. At this point in time, the undefeated king of the road is the Koenigsegg Agera R. We are absolutely sure that most people haven’t heard of this beast, but if you have been around the block long enough, you’re sure to have heard about the quickest supercar on the planet. The car has a horsepower of 1140 which allows it to reach speeds in excess of 273 mph. No car has been able to go past the 270 mph for quite some time until this supercar was unleashed onto the markets. The car is capable of reaching 0 to 60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds and reaches from 0 to 186 mph in a record time of 11.6 seconds. The car is powered by a 5-Litre Turbocharged V8 DOHC engine, making it one of the finest automotive creations ever. This baby would cost you around 1.1 million pounds in the current market. car 2. Coming in a close second is the Hennessey Venom GT; the supercar is powered by a 7-Litre Twin-Turbocharger V8 engine that gives 1244 horsepower. There are some cars that look like an absolute beast, and the Venom GT easily sits on top of the list of the most intimidating cars on the planet. The supercar can not only clock speeds of 270 mph but is built in such a way that it feels like a monster on the road. The supercar can reach 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds, and due to its single-clutch shift system and intercooler enhancements, this beast can go from 0 to 200 mph in 14.5 seconds. The Venom GT is quite new to the market but is starting to hit all the right notes and is priced around 1.2 million US dollars. For now, the Agera R sits on top of the list when it comes to the fastest car on the planet, but the Venom GT is only short by three mph. No one is sure on which car is better, but if we have to go purely on stats, then the Agera R barely edges out the Venom GT. But the best way to settle this debate would be to see the two beasts battle it out in an all-out race for supremacy.

The fastest racers in the world

It is quite difficult to name the best racers in the world due to a number of reasons. It is like trying to name the best footballers ever; the list becomes difficult because it is easier to name the best footballers among the current generation. If you ask someone who the best racer on the planet is at this point, they will throw names like Hamilton, Vettel, Raikkonen or Alonso at you. They are not mistaken but what people fail to realise is the contributing variables in making such a list. To a racer, the formula 1 is simply the pinnacle of racing, and we have tried to look at the finest racers across generations. The article will contain some heavyweights of the racing game but also some surprise entries. As we said, it is a challenge to name the best racers in the world. Some of the contributing factors are the generation they belonged in, the kind of the car they drove, the competition they face during the time that they were active and so on. But if one man stands above the rest then it has to be Michael Schumacher. The success that man achieved cannot be underplayed. Many people within the racing field including ardent fans would argue that the man was cold, calculated and menacing; but we believe that those were the traits that propelled him to stardom. His finest years were between 2000 and 2005 when he blew everyone out of the water and built a legacy that is simply unmatched. Regardless of the strong opinions, people have against him and for that matter the argument that it wasn’t him but the car that won him the championships; one simply can’t look past the 91 Grand Prix victories that he amassed in his career. Lewis-Hamilton There are a number of names who can edge out Michael Schumacher in a race. Given a time machine, who knows what the outcome would be if a young Schumacher went up against the Hamiltons and Vettels of today. But this list is going to pay homage to the man they all call the El maestro, Juan Manuel Fangio. The truth of the matter is that Fangio defeats the notion that it is a young man’s game since he started his illustrious career at the age of 37. He won 5 formula championships, and on four occasions he won it with different cars. His story is about what could have been. We could have witnessed the greatest racer in all of history if he had started his career much earlier. But credit is given where credit is due; El maestro won 23 of his 51 starts. He was the sort of man that Michael Schumacher could never be, a joy to his rivals and his fans. It would have been a sight to see if their paths crossed, but by the time a young Mike Schumacher took the world by storm, Fangio had passed away.
