The 8000+ Horsepower Thread! 8 of The Fastest Cars of '09!
Even though auto industry is taking a beating due to the economic crisis, there are still some amazing cars in production that most of us will never get to see in real life.
If you have the money, these cars are still very hard to get as they are usually all sold out before the production starts.
With these cars, the main question is how fast they are, how much horsepower they make, how unique and how much do they cost. Here is a list of cars currently in production..
8. Pagani Zonda R
Top speed: 217 mph (350 km/h). 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) comes in about 3.0 seconds.
Price starts at: $1,850,000 (1,460,000 Euros)
Power comes from an AMG sourced 6.0-liter race derived V12 that develops 750 horsepower. Only 16 units will be built. The Zonda R is all about pure driving without the all the luxury that you will find in a Bugatti Veyron.
7. Gumpert Apollo Speed
Top speed: 224 mph (362 km/h), 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3.0 seconds.
Price starts at: $392,954 (301,600 Euros)
It is not the prettiest supercar, but on the track it is a real beast and leaves pretty much everyone behind. The Apollo is powered by a 4.2-liter Audi V8 that makes up to 800 horsepower.
6. Bristol Fighter T
Top speed: electronically limited to 225mph (362 km/h), 0-62mph (0-100 km/h) 3.5 seconds. Price starts at: $576,201 ( 411,483 Euros).
The Fighter T is made in Britain and is powered by an 8.0-liter V10 found in the Dodge Viper SRT-10. Thanks to the twin-turbochargers, it develops a massive 1012 horsepower. Power is sent to rear wheels.
According to Bristol maximum speed is actually 270 mph (434 km/h), but it is electronically limited to 225 mph. Around 10 Fighter T models are built a year.
5. Zenvo ST1
Top speed: Electronically limited to 233 mph (375 km/h). 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 3 seconds.
The Zenvo ST1 is the first supercar from Denmark. Developed by Zenvo Automotive, it will be limited to just 15 units.
The 7.0-liter V8 is placed behind the driver and ahead of the rear axle and develops 1104 horsepower.
4. Koenigsegg CCXR
Top speed: 250+ mph (400+ km/h). 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h in 3.1 seconds.
Price starts at: $1,200,000 (870,000 Euros)
The CCXR is the first green supercar. When run on regular gasoline, the 4.7-liter twin-turbocharged engine makes 806 horsepower and when run on E85 Biofuel, it develops an impressive 1018 horsepower.
Koenigsegg claims that 15 units have already been delivered and another 10 will be delivered this year. It takes around 55 days to produce one of these supercars.
3. Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4
Top speed: 253 mph (407 km/h). 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.5 seconds.
Price starts at: $1,755,405 (1,305,000 Euros)
Veyron is the most popular supercar in this list. Total production is 300 units plus limited editions. Power comes from a 8.0-liter 16 cylinder quad-turbocharged engine that develops 1001 horsepower and 1250 Nm of torque. It is also more luxurious than any other car in this list. Of course all this comes at a price.
2. 9ff GT9-R
Top speed: 257 mph (414 km/h). 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.9 seconds.
The 9ff GT9-R is based on the Porsche 911 GT3. But it is no Porsche as only 2% of the components are shared with the original GT3. It is lower, longer and the engine is in the middle not on the rear.
Power comes from a 4-liter 6 Cylinder Boxer engine that develops 1120 horsepower.
Total production is limited to just 20 units.
1. SSC Ultimate Aero
Top speed: 270 mph (434 km/h). 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 2.8 seconds.
Power comes from a 6.4-liter twin-turbo V8 that develops 1,287 HP. Stopping a car at 250 mph is not easy. So, the ‘09 variant has an AeroBrake to slow the super car down.
The ‘08 variant produced 1183 hp and it successfully held the “World’s Fastest Production Car” title last year. Now with extra 104 horsepower, it makes it even harder for competitors to snatch the title.
