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.
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.
