Several Fast Cars For Your Consideration

by Adam Vargo

There are different reasons for a car to be as quick as it can be. It is especially the speed which makes it get to top the list of the best fast cars. The reasons could also be a matter of choice.

There are different reasons why you could see it as a speed-driven car. There is its aerodynamics, its horse power, its engine capacity, its spoilers and other elements. The best way to compare these to each other is to have them tested as they run off the production line. That means that it should have no modification whatsoever.

Production cars which have been tested this way are, just to name a few, the Bugatti (Veyron), the Koenigsegg (CCX), the Ultimate Aero TT, the Saleen (S7) and the Mercedes McLaren F1. The Bugatti Veyron is at the top of the list with its engine capacity and its styling.

Right now this is the car that every man (and every right thinking woman) would want to own. It is the most elegant of fast cars. This car reaches a top speed of 253.2 miles per hour (407.5 km/h), but can be faster. The speed is, however, monitored electronically so that no tire damage can occur.

With such a vehicle there is always the downside of heavy fuel consumption. This vehicle is no different and is indeed a gas guzzler. For its incredible speed it has to have a boot spoiler which can be hydraulically raised or lowered as the speed increases or decreases. The most expensive car in the world comes with a sixteen cylinder, V8 engine.

Another car which can be highlighted the Koenigsegg CCX. This Swedish built car has been seen as one of the fastest cars in the world, but failed to perform to its reputation as it became very hard to handle at its top speed of approximately 250 mph (400 km/h). It needed to be modified with a rear spoiler to improve its aerodynamics. However, it still remains a super car with its V8 engine and 4700 cc capacity. As with all of these, be sure that you will have to fill her up more often than not.

The SSC Ultimate Aero TT has a maximum speed of 257 mph (with a top speed of 270 mph) and should therefore be at the top of the list. (in terms of speed). It is, in effect, the world's fastest car. The reason it might not be as popular is because of its styling. Most people are interested in speed, sound as well as styling. They want something that is outstanding and exciting to look at and listen to as it speeds around.
