Petrol head moments with the fastest cars in the world

There is not a feeling in the world that can begin to describe what one feels when racing down a tar road in one of the fastest cars in the world. The pure electrifying feeling of having such magnificent piece of human engineering under your feet is enough to make anyone addicted to the notion of being in control of such a beautiful car. Just remember, while it is a once in a lifetime experience to be able to drive one of the fastest cars in the world, it is also one of the most expensive experiences…

For the petrol head fanatics, let’s have a look at some of the world’s fastest motor vehicles.

Koenigsegg Agera R

Although not a very popular name, the Koenigsegg can reach a staggering 439 km/h. Being such the beauty that she is, it is no wonder that she has made it up the list of the fastest cars in the world so fast. This amazing car comes with a 5 litre turbocharged V8 DOHC engine with a compression ratio of 9.0:1 and is capable of a forceful 1200 pound-feet of torque and horsepower. Being able to run from 0 to 100km/h in just 2.5 seconds, no wonder there is a price tag of £1.1million on this car!

Henessey Venom GT

Sounding a bit like a poisonous snake, the Henessey Venom can reach a speed of 434km/h. The Henessey has a 7.0 litre twin turbocharged V8 engine and is capable of generating a horsepower of 1244 and torque of 1155 pound-feet. This beauty can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 2.8 seconds, making it not only a sight for sore eyes but a speed freak like none other! Valued at $1.2 million, who wouldn’t want to drive this car?

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Living up to all other Bugatti sisters in its name, the Veyron Super Sport is yet another fascinating piece of engineered perfection. Having a top speed of 431 km/h, this car is equipped with an 8 litre quad turbo W16 engine that can generate a torque of 1106 pound-feet and horsepower 1200. This luxury beast can run from 0-100km/h in 2.4 seconds, making it seem as if speed is the most effortless feature of this car. Would you want to own one, you need to fork out €1.6 million for it to be able to sit in the Bugatti Veyron.

Controlling such a great piece of engineering that brings together science, technology and manufacturing is an experience that many people will crave their entire lives. To be able to own on will be even greater but until then, we all drive one of the fastest cars in the world in our minds…
