Fastest Cars in the World 2022
The Top 6 Fastest Cars of 2022
Automotive vehicles in today’s world can serve many purposes and provide many comforts but for car enthusiasts and fanatics there is one parameter that means the most. Speed is what matters when cars are measured for their superiority among others. Top speed is the trump card that overrules style, agility, and performance with ease.
Not every vehicle is designed and manufactured to produce the standards that can help them to join the extraordinary league of the world’s fastest cars. It takes years of research and phenomenal engineering to achieve this coveted milestone. Dedicated resources work tirelessly to shave off every ounce of extra weight and perfect the shape of the vehicle in the wind tunnels to maximize the aerodynamics.
Exceptional engines are designed and produced to provide the push so those vehicles can reach those unreal speeds while cutting through the air and gravity. To reach the pinnacle of speed, the vehicles are required to be the marvel of modern engineering. Most of the vehicles aiming to top this league of extraordinary were aiming for the magical mark of 300 mph but rapidly developing technology has helped them surpass that mark and set their eyes on new horizons.
Following is the list where we are going to have a look at some of the fastest vehicles produced in the current year of 2022. We have made sure that we only include the vehicles that are considered road-legal production cars and can be bought from the market.
This is not the first time when McLaren produced the world’s fastest car. In 1994 McLaren gifted the world of speed demons a car that was at that time the fastest production car in the world topping 240 mph. 28 years later the legendary F1 leading company used their research and development in the pinnacle of motorsport to produce another blazing fast car. Speedtail is a little more practical with 3 seats and a 4.0-liter engine that produces an astonishing 1036 hp. It accelerates from 0-62 in mere 2.9 seconds and can achieve the top speed of 250 mph. Not to forget that it is mesmerizingly beautiful.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
Aston Martin is a brand that is more at ease with classy and fast vehicles that can transport the elites of the society with enough performance and panache. However, this British icon has produced an extraordinary race machine while joining hands with Red Bull Racing from Formula One. the 6.5-liter powerhouse in this car can produce 1160 hp and the top speed of this revolutionary vehicle is recorded at 250mph.
Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+
Despite many claiming to have broken the 300-mph barrier (some falsely such as SSC Tuatara) Bugatti Chiron realistically ventured the limits of 300 mph, a first for any hypercar, with its Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. Bugatti threw the gauntlet and others followed afterward.
It featured a colossal 8.0-liter engine with quad turbos that produced 1600 hp and the acceleration to 60mph was done in 2.3 seconds and top speed, well it’s in its name. The top speed was 300 mph.
Crossing the 300+ mile barrier provided enough confidence to the French automaker that they decided to go a step further. This time they not only aimed for the fastest top speed but also a track-focused vehicle that could smash any track record as well. Some extreme weight saving meant this car weighs almost half when compared to the Chiron and is way faster. Simulations proved that this car can go round the Nürburgring in record 5 minutes 23 seconds. It has an 8.0-liter engine with quad turbochargers capable of producing 1825 hp with 0-62 mph time reduced to 2.1 seconds and top speed increased to 310 mph.
Hennessey Venom F5
HennesseyVenom F5 was the continuation of the dream to claim the fastest ever production car ever built. 2014 was the year when it finally took the Bugatti off its perch and claimed the top prize. Since then, there has been a lot of back and forth but Hennessey Venom remained a serious player in the hypercar industry.
Venom not only made its mark in the top speed but it smashed the 300-mph barrier with a convincing 311 mph record. This feat was possible only because of the rear-mounted 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produced 1817 hp. Despite the anticipation and excitement around this car, only 24 of those cars were ever produced and were sold before any of them were ever produced.
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
The fastest hypercar in the world is not what comes to mind when you think about Sweden. However, this mild-mannered nation is responsible for one of the most outrageous and genius automotive brands called Koenigsegg. They have been producing performance-oriented vehicles for many years and are quite successful at it. Their vehicles are considered royalty in the supercar fraternity and very few and selected people can get their hands on them as these cars are produced in limited numbers.
Naturally, like any other supercar brand, Koenigsegg also wanted the coveted prize of the fastest production car in the world and set about to fulfill that dream. Thousands of hours were spent exploring aerodynamics and mechanical possibilities. Research and development were carried out for many years and finally, the end product bore the fruit of all the efforts.
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut was given a 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine powerful enough to crank out 1600 hp. It can bolt to 62 mph from a standstill in a mere 2.8 seconds and can reach an astonishing top speed of 330 mph. This marvel of modern engineering has set a benchmark that would be hard to conquer for a long time. It is important to note that the rapid changes and advancements in technology mean that it is possible that those figures could be trumped easily in near future. There are many vehicles in the pipeline that claim to be even faster than the vehicles we have mentioned above.
