Worlds Fastest Cars While
most of us can only dream of owning the fastest car in the world, some will do whatever it takes to possess such speed and power.So, how fast are the fastest cars in the world? Here is the 10 fastest cars available on the market measures by top speed.
1.SSC Ultimate AeroThe C Ulti te Aer i erf l engine rt r nuf tured hel uperC r . The preci us C Ulti te Aer TT is the rlds f stest pr ducti n car, hich travels at a t p speed f 257 ph. The new versi n nown as 2 9 C Ulti ate Aero has een odified where some changes have een added to the exteriors, interiors, and the increase of horsepower about 5%. The most important change is the single piece aluminum block engine that improves the oiling capabilities and structure of the engine, so that the C Ultimate Aero produces an output of about 287 horsepower.
At the cost of $654,000 and with a newly designed engine, the Ultimate Aero can reach a maximum speed of 270 mph, which is a world record speed. It can reach from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 secs. The front face of the car has been redesigned with improved aerodynamics and carbon fiber which draws 20% additional air to the radiators for better cooling. The eroBrakeTM system has been introduced in this car which is a rear spoiler system that can be controlled by a switch. The spoiler speed can be set depending on the pressure applied on the brake pedal.
The interiors are mostly designed of carbon fibers that bound the doors, steering column, speedometer and tachometer.

2.Bugatti VeyronNot just a super car that carries on the name of racing driver Pierre Veyron, who, while racing for the original Bugatti car manufacturer, won the 4 hours of Le Mans in 1 3 , Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is the second fastest car in the world and the most powerful, it can easily pass as a super hero`s car like Batman. It has the fastest acceleration speed, reaching 60 mph in .6 seconds. Endowed with W16 engine-16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders fed by four turbochargers, a dual-clutch DSG computer-controlled manual transmission, the Veyron has a length is 446 mm (1 . in) a wide of 1 mm ( . in) and hight of 1 06 mm (4 . in). ounting a sum of 10 radiators, for the engine cooling system, for transmission oil, a heat exchanger for the air to liquid intercoolers, for engine oil etc., the car has a power to weight ratio of bhp/tonne.
If we talk about performance we are dazzled by this supercars power to reach 00 and 300 km/h (1 4 and 1 6 mph) in .3 and respectively 16. seconds, wining for herself the name of the quickest-accelerating production car in history. If we count the fact that the top speed of Bugatti Veyron is 3. miles per hour (40 . km/h), a speed limited electronically to prevent tire damage (it can run even faster) we can understand why this spectacular car must consume 40.4 L/100 km (4. mpg) when it`s running at top speed and model drove by superstars like Tom ruise, couldn`t name itself cheap, rising the Bugatti Veyron at least of $1, 00,000, a price that measures it`s quality. Many new designs has been released since 006, the color might have changed, but the speed and power remain the same.in city driving 4.1 L/100 km

KOENIGSEGG CCXPerformanceThe X can accelerate from 06 mph (100 km/h) in 3. seconds and from 01 4 mph ( 00 km/h) in . seconds. ccording to Koenigsegg it has a top speed of mph (41 km/h), although this has not been officially verified.On 1 June 00 , a standard fully equipped X was independently timed by sport auto in achieving a record 0-1 6-0 mph (0-300 0 km/h) in . seconds, beating out the Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR Edition, the Lamborghini Murcilago LP640, the Porsche GT2, the lpina B6 S (based on the BMW 6 Series), and the orvette Z06.
Engine The engine of a Koenigsegg X at the 2006 Geneva Motor Show While previous Koenigsegg models were powered by an engined based on the Ford Modular V engine sourced from the .S., and modified by Koenigsegg, the engine of the X was designed by Koenigsegg themselves and is built ground up in the Koenigsegg factory. The Engine block is cast for them by Grainger & Worrall, a British company that produces drivetrain components for Formula One cars.The engine is a 4. liter 288 cu in (4, 1 cc) V8, with dual overhead camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder.The engine block is made of 3 6 luminium that has undergone a T7 heat treatment, a form of accelerated precipitation strengthening.The aluminium alloy is stronger than the previous engine and allows a thinner, thus lighter, engine block that will withstand higher cylinder pressures. The engine is boosted by two centrifugal superchargers that provide 17. psi (1.2 bar) of boost with an 8.2:1 compression ratio. The engine produces 806 bhp (601 kW; 817 PS) at 6 00 rpm and 678 lbft ( 1 Nm) of torque at 700 rpm on 1 octane ( .S. rating) gasoline.The engine is lubricated with a dry sump system with a separate oil pump, the pistons are cooled by oil sprayed onto them and the oil itself has an external cooler.The X engine burns 14 mph.

4.SALEEN S7 TWIN TURBO
Chassis The chassis comprises a space frame-derived design consisting 4130 lightweight steel and aluminum honeycomb composite reinforcing panels. It is divided into bolt-fastened sub-assemblies to allow for rapid access to critical subsystems. The light weight of the chassis allows for the car to weigh a mere 2750 pounds (1247 kg). Engine The original Saleen S7 sported a 7-liter (7008 cc/427.6 cu in), naturallyaspirated, all-aluminum OHV V8 engine, mounted at 0 approximately in the middle of the chassis for a balanced mid-engine layout that delivered power to the rear wheels while keeping the center of gravity towards the middle of the car, improving overall performance. Each cylinder is lubricated via a dry sump system, has two stainless steel valves per cylinder, a compression ratio of 10.0:1, and a bore and stroke of 4.125 and 4.00 inches (104. and 101.6 mm), respectively.The original engine developed a maximum power of 550 horsepower (558 PS/410 kW) at 6400 rpm and a maximum torque of 525 foot-pounds (712 Nm) at 4000 rpm. The redline rpm is indicated at 6500 rpm. pair of ball-bearing turbos were added for the 2005 model year, increasing horsepower to 750 bhp (559 kW; 760 PS). The engine is connected to a 6-speed manual transaxle with full synchromesh, a, 4-plate clutch and a limited slip differential. Performance The S7 can accelerate from 060 miles per hour (97 km/h) in an estimated 3.9 seconds, and to 100 miles per hour in an estimated 8.1 seconds,It can complete a standing quarter mile in an estimated 11.75 seconds, reaching 126 miles per hour (203 km/h).The maximum top speed of the car is 210 miles per hour (340 km/h).
Exterior A Speedlab yellow Saleen S7 The body of the car, made entirely from carbon fiber, incorporates the use of scoops, spoilers, and other aerodynamic features to create split-channel airflow throughout the car, and at 160 miles per hour (257 km/h), the car creates its own weight in downforce. Theoretically, the car produces enough downforce to drive upside down. Interior The interior of the Saleen S7 was designed to be both luxurious and functional. Leather appears throughout the cabin, with aluminum accents, and the S7 comes with a set of custom-fit luggage. Because of the car's mid-engine layout, it has two trunks, front and rear. Other features include an LCD monitor, rear-view camera, quick-release steering-wheel and a 240 mile per hour (386 km/h) speedometer. The cabin is of an asymmetrical layout, with the custom-fitted driver's seat positioned toward the center both to improve the driver's visibility and center their weight in the vehicle.
5. MC LAREN F1
Performance In terms of sheer top speed, the F1 remains as of 2008 one of the fastest production cars ever made; as of July 2008 it is only R,the Bugatti Veyron and the succeeded by the Koenigsegg SS ltimate ero TT. However, all of the superior top speed machines exploit forced induction to reach their respective top speeds making the McLaren F1 the fastest naturally aspirated production car in the world. Top speed With rev limiter on: 231 mph (372 km/h) With rev limiter removed: 240 mph (390 km/h) Track tests Tsukuba ircuit, time trial: 1:04.62 on a hot lap. Bedford utodrome West ircuit, time trial: 1:21.20 on a hot lap, which is faster than the Ferrari Enzo at 1:21.30. Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, 2-mile (3.2 km) banked circuit, top speed test: n average speed of 195.3 mph (314.3 km/h), with a maximum speed of 200.8 mph (323.2 km/h) (driven by Tiff Needell using the XP5 prototype). MIR , 2.82-mile (4.54 km) banked circuit, top speed test: n average speed of 168 mph (270 km/h), with a maximum speed of 196.2 mph (315.8 km/h) (driven by Peter Taylor).
Record claims The title of "world's fastest production road car" is constantly in contention, especially because the term "production car" is not well-defined. The McLaren F1 has a top speed of 231 mph (372 km/h),restricted by the rev limiter at 7500 rpm. The true top speed of the McLaren F1 was reached in pril 1998 by the fiveyear-old XP5 prototype. ndy Wallace (racer) piloted it down the 9 km straight at Volkswagens Ehra test track in Wolfsburg, Germany, setting a new world record of 240.1 mph (386.4 km/h) at 7800 rpm. s Mario ndretti noted in a comparison test, the F1 is fully capable of pulling a seventh gear, thus with a higher gear ratio or a seventh gear the McLaren F1 would probably be able to reach an even greater top speedsomething which can also be observed by noticing that the top speed was reached at 7800 rpm while the peak power is reached at 7400 RPM.
Engine Main article: Ferrari Dino engine#V12
The Enzo is a mid-engined car with a 43.9/56.1 front/rear weight distribution. The engine is Ferrari's F140 65 V12 with 4 valves per cylinder, dual overhead cams and variable valve timing. Bosch Motronic ME7 fuel injection is used and the engine is naturally aspirated. It displaces 5998 cc (366 in) and produces 660 PS (651 hp/485 kW) at 7800 rpm and 657 Nm (485 [ftlbf of torque]) at 5500 rpm.The redline is 8000 rpm. Chassis The Enzo has a semi-automatic transmission (also known as the F1 gearbox) using paddles to control an automated shifting and clutch mechanism, with LED lights on the steering wheel telling the driver when to change gears. The gearbox has a shift time of just 150 milliseconds. The transmission was a first generation "clutchless" design from the late 1990s, and there have been complaints about its abrupt shifting. The Enzo Ferrari has 4 wheel independent suspension with push-rod actuated shock absorbers which can be adjusted from the cabin, complemented with anti-roll bars at the front and rear. The Enzo uses 483-millimetre (19 in) wheels and has 381-millimetre (15 in) Brembo disc brakes.
Performance The Enzo can accelerate to 60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.3 secondsand can reach 100 mph (160 km/h) in 6.6 seconds. The mile (~400 m) time is 11.0 at 136 mph (219 km/h) and the top speed is around 349 kilometers per hour (219 mph).It is rated at 12 miles per US gallon (20 L/100 km; 14 mpg-imp) in the city and 18 miles per US gallon (13 L/100 km; 22 mpg-imp) on the highway. Despite the Enzo's extraordinary performance and price, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia (an improved version of Ferrari's current mid-range production car) is capable of lapping the Ferrari test track just as quickly as the Enzo. Evo magazine tested the Enzo on the famed Nordschleife Circuit and ran a 7:25.21 lap time. The Enzo in the test had a broken electronic damper
Speed record In 1992 at the Nard Ring, Martin Brundle drove an XJ220 to 212.3 mph (341.7 km/h). The car's catalytic converters sap the engine of an estimated 60 bhp (45 kW), and they were later disconnected and the rev limiter was increased from 7200 rpm to 7900 rpm in a quest to make the XJ220 go even faster. On a later run with the modifications, Brundle took the XJ220 to 217.1 mph (349.4 km/h) (the equivalent to approximately 223 mph (359 km/h) on a straight road).. Racing version A racing version called the XJ220C was also made. The XJ220 , driven by Win Percy won its first race, a round of the BRD National Sports GT hallenge at Silverstone. Three works XJ220 's were entered in the 1993 Le Mans 24 Hour race, in the newly created Grand Touring lass. Two of the cars retired but one XJ220, driven by John Nielsen, David Brabham and David oulthard took the checkered flag to take a class win. This, however, was revoked two weeks later, when the XJ220 was disqualified for a technical infringement. An XJ220 would also be used in the Italian GT hampionship in the early 1990s, although this car had no factory support
8.PAGANI ZONDA F
The final Zonda in its current form is a combination of the Zonda F and Zonda R to create a road going track day car. Built at the repeated request of the Hong Kongbased Pagani dealer, SPS Automotive Performance (in fact, initially it had to be called Zonda SPS), only five will be built at the cost of 1 million, with deliveries expected by June 2009 for all five cars. The differences over other road-going Zondas are a new clutchless sequential gearchange, resulting in shifts now taking less than 100 milliseconds, dropping 062 mph down to 3.4 seconds, the inque (pronounced chin-kway) also has a revised form of carbon fibre which uses titanium to increase strength, suspension will make use of magnesium and titanium components, and the engine's power has been increased to 678 bhp (506 kW), revised bodywork now creates 750 kg (1,653 lb) of downforce at 300 km/h (186 mph), the inque is capable of generating 1.45 G of cornering force.
9. Lamborghini Murcielago
Acceleration and Power Auto writers are blown away by the '09 Murcielago LP640's 6.5-liter V12 engine. It produces 631-horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 487 poundfeet of torque at 6,000 rpm. While a six-speed manual transmission is standard, a robotized gear shifting system (e-gear) is optional. Lamborghini reports that the coupe and ro...
