Hello everyone, it’s Barry again from Barry’s auto body and collision repair. Today we’re going to answer the question that everyone in the auto industry wants to know: “What are the fastest cars in the world?” Ready to see some jaw dropping numbers?
Ladies and gentlemen, drum roll please…The Hennessey Venom F5. Hennessey Special Vehicles developed this vehicle in their Texas headquarters and first revealed the model in November of 2017. The sub 3 second 0-60 time and top speed of 301 mph or 484 km/h make the Hennessey Venom F5 the fastest car of 2019 so far.
In second place is the Koenigsegg Agera RS. The Swedish company first launched the cars production in 2016. Boasting a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8, the car went 0-60 in 2.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 285 mph or 458km/h at a straight line test in Denmark.
In third, is the Bugatti Chiron, developed in Molsheim, France by Bugatti Automobiles SAS. It was first revealed in March of 2016. The engine is a heavily updated quad-turbo W16, that adds up to 1500 horsepower and blasts the car to a top speed of 280 mph or 451 km/h. A beautiful interior and exterior result in a price of $2.6 million so it’s not exactly the cheapest option on the list.
Taking the fourth place spot is the Koenigsegg Agera One:1. This slightly less updated version of the Agera RS, debuted in March at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. This car has the same 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 as the Ageras and gets it’s unique name from the power to weight ratio which is 1,360 to 1,360. The Koenigsegg Agera One:1 comes in at a top speed of 273 mph or 439 km/h.
Rounding out the top 5 is the Hennessey Venom GT. The second vehicle on our list from the Texas-based manufacturer is equipped with a 7.0 liter Twin-turbocharged LSX V8. In February 2014, at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the Venom GT set a top speed of 270 mph or 435 km/h.
