Fastest Super Cars since the 21st Century
Supercars year on year have exceeded there predecessor models in speed and performance. We all dream of owning or driving some of the most famous sports cars on the face of the Earth, but in reality motor shows and television provide as close to an experience as many of us will ever experience.
The question on many car enthusiasts’ lips would be how fast are the cars in the World available since the turn of the century? My list contains the fastest cars since the year 2000 available to purchase, ranked by their top speed.
- Bugatti Veyron – Super Sport : 267 mph / 429 kph, 0 to 60 in just 2.5 seconds. Aluminium, Narrow Angle 8 Litre W 16 Engine capable of an incredible1, 200 horse power, starting price for this vehicle is €1, 912, 500 EURO / £1, 665, 000 GBP/ $2, 700, 000 USD. Bugatti hold two records, one for the original Bugatti Veyron in 2005 which was beaten by the Aero TT in 2007, Bugatti in 2010 then built the Super Sport which outstripped the Aero TT by 11 kph to become the fastest car in the World.
- SSC Ultimate – Aero TT: 256 mph / 412 kph, 0 to 60 in just 2.7 seconds. Twin Turbo V8 Engine capable of 1, 183 horse power, the starting price for this supercar is ~$650, 000 USD / £410, 000 GBP / €475, 140 euro. The Aero TT gained its record for the fastest car during 2007 and kept this record up until the Super Sport took the top spot relegating the Aero TT to second place. It is likely there is due a successor to the Aero, the Aero II, which will have an incredible 1, 350 horse power, 150 more than the current fastest car in the world believed to be able to achieve 268 mph / 431 kph.
- Koenigsegg – CCX: 245 mph, 0 to 60 in just 3.2 seconds. Ninety Degree V8 Engine capable of an impressive 806 horse power, starting price for this vehicle is ~$590 ,000 USD / £372, 300 GBP / €431, 280 euro. Constructed in Sweden this supercar gets the third spot, it is however a world away from the Aero and Veyron having a short lived record, succeeded by the Veyron just two months after achieving the Guinness world record.
There are many limitations that manufactures are looking to overcomes, but as they reach produce vehicles which are the most aerodynamic and quickest while also paying consideration to the relevant international laws and keeping the driver safe, it is becoming harder and harder to produce such vehicles, take the Aero II as an example, for an additional ~2kph / 1 mph the vehicle needs to produce 150 horse power. At these extremes we may well be at our limits for safe road use.
