The Worlds Fastest Car
The Worlds Fastest Car - SSC Ultimate Aero TT
Tested by the Guiness Book of World Records in March of 2007, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT is still the worlds fastest car for the 2009-2010 year. With a top speed of 257 miles per hour it has surpassed the previous worlds fastest car, the Bugatti Veyron.
The SSC Ultimate Aero’s base price is $654,400 US, and it is well worth the 0-60 miles per hour in 2.7 seconds produced by the 1,183 horses running wild under the hood. The worlds fastest car is manufactured by Shelby SuperCars, who released an even more powerful 2009 edition of the SSC Ultimate Aero. With a few tweaks here and there Shelby SuperCars was able to squeeze 15 percent more horsepower out of the Twin Turbo V8 engine. With an output of 1,287 horses the worlds fastest car, surpasses its closest competitor the Bugatti Veyron by two-hundred and eighty-six horses.
The 2009 model of the SSC Ultimate Aero has an increased speed of 270 miles per hour. To add the worlds fastest car stopping power the AeroBrakeTM system has been introduced. The AeroBrakeTM, is a rear spoiler that works much like flaps on an airplane. When the brake is applied the rear spoiler raises according to the amount of brake pressure, bring the car to a stop far sooner than brakes alone could.
The second worlds fastest car is the Bugatii Veyron, clocked at 253 miles per hour by the Guiness Book of Word Records. The Bugatti Veyron can go 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, the world record for acceleration in a production car. The worlds fastest car operates off of the Narrow Angle W16 Engine, which boasts 1001 horsepower. Named after the Bugatti race car driver Pierre Veyron, this 16 cylinder engine, has four banks of four cylinders. If that’s not enough, the W16 engine also has not one, not two, but 4 turbochargers!
The worlds fastest cars run hard and hot, the Bugatti Veyron accounts for this also with ten radiators, ensuring the entire W16 engine stays cool. The Bugatti is capable of going faster, much faster in fact, but it is governed at 253 miles per hour in order to prevent tire damage. Due to the 16 cylinder engine, this car gulps 5 gallons of fuel every mile (5 miles per gallon – highway) and approximately 12 miles per gallon in city traffic. Only the worlds richest and most prestigious can afford the second worlds fastest car due to its price tag of $1,700,000 US.
Placing in third is the Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo, priced at 550,000 US. The Saleen S7 is powered by a Twin-Turbo V8 Engine, capable of producing 750 horsepower. The third worlds fastest car is capable of speeds upwards to 448 miles per hour. The Saleen S7 can reach 60 miles per hour in approximately 3.2 seconds and speeds of 100 miles per hour in less than 7 seconds.
The fourth fastest car is a Swedish production car, the Koenigsegg CCX. Producing 806 horsepower the 90 Degree V8 Engine can accelerate this car from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. It may not be the fastest car in the world but boasting top speeds of 245 miles per hour is not bad. The CCX in the Koenigsegg’s name stands for “Competition Coupe X” and it was launched as part of the 10th Anniversary Celbration of Koenigsegg. With 50mm headroom space, this car has become the most spacious of the worlds fastest cars. The price tag on the Koenigsegg CCX is $545,568 US.
The McLaren F1 was the worlds fastest car until the Bugatti Veyron was introduced. The McLaren F1 reaches a top speed of 240 miles per hour and is powered by the BMW 6 Liter V12 Engine. This engine has an output of 627 horsepower and also has an option for Imperial Horsepower. Many different versions of the McLaren F1, the fourth worlds fastest car, including sixty-five street versions, five LMs (built for their victory at Le Mans in 1995), three are road versions of their race car and 28 GTRs for the road.
The McLaren F1 concept came from Chief Engineer Gordon Murray, who introduced the use of carbon, titanium, and gold for the carbon fiber monocoque chassis. The price tag on the fourth worlds fastest car was $970,000 US, when it was still being produced. Whereas the McLaren F1 is no longer manufactured the current price tag is probably far greater.
