In the words of James Graham Ballard, “the ultimate concept car will move so fast, even at rest, as to be invisible.” We are in the golden age of speed, and no matter how hard it is to envision that cars will continue to get quicker and quicker at the same pace, the coming of the car that breaks the mile-a-minute barrier in less than two seconds is still possible up to this point.
You know it’s coming.
There are a thousand ways to measure automotive excellence, but exceptional speed would always be everyone’s secret desire. There are a lot of quick cars out there, but here are the 5 cars worth mentioning:
1. 2008 Bugatti Veyron 16.4
Driving a Bugatti Veyron is the same as carrying a 14.6 foot long open wallet that is splattering 50 dollar bills. This exceptional sports car has 12 radiators, giving 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. At its top speed of 253 mph, it is capable of traveling 371 feet per second and can empty its 26.4-gallon tank in 20 minutes.
2. 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S- 2.5 seconds
Like most Porsche 911s, the Turbo S is 100% safe for daily use. Despite its 20-inch wheels, this luxury car has the softest setting, with electronically adjustable shocks and perfectly heated-and-cooled 18-way modifiable seats. Perceptibility of all directions is superb, both at full throttle and while cruising at 70 mph. This is the quietest in the group with its price and performance. It can go from 30 mph in one second, 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, up to 100 in 6.2 seconds. The quarter blurs past in 10.6 seconds at 130 mph, and 150 is doable in less than 15.
3. 2015 Porsche 918 Spyder – 2.2 seconds
This monster can hit 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and burn the quarter-mile in 10.1 ticks. With two electric motors with a fusioned 285 horsepower work in performance with the flat-crank, 608-hp 4.6-liter V-8, the Porsche 918 Spyder is the quickest accelerating production car ever tested.
4. 2015 Lamborghini Hurcan LP610-4
With great pride and joy, this car has a reputation for being fast in a straight line and even in bulky corner, running at 2.5 seconds on 60 mph. This top of the line car gives you the security and support, that even though you’ll sit close to the ground with it, you will feel comfortable everywhere with its bucket-and-pulley system. It also has a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel with 3 full-screen modes that gives full attention on testing the terminal velocity, shifting at the limit and navigation.
5. 2015 Ferrari LaFerarri – 2.5 seconds
The numbers only tell part of how fast this car is. Among all the cars, there are sports cars, there are exotic sports cars, and there’s LaFerrari. This 789-hp V-12 is augmented by a 161-hp boost from an electric motor. It’s an amazing hybrid, allowing itself to accelerate while gobbling less fuel. Nothing can go wrong with this fast vehicle, having the ability to exceed expectations of customers and it has been tried and tested by sports car enthusiasts. When it comes to hybrid cars, Ferrari undoubtedly does it best, and it will never disappoint you at any race.
