There is no denying that F1 cars are modern and modern models and possess outstanding speed when compared with other colleagues in other areas.
Of course, every detail, every wheel, every carbon fiber on the F1 body is built with the aim of delivering the highest possible performance and speed, so the results are not surprising. The record set by F1 cars is 372 km/hin 2016 of Williams racing team.
However, somewhere in the market you can still own yourself supercars even more superior when discussing speed, in addition they are valid for driving around like usual. Here are 5 such models.
McLaren F1 – 386 km/h
McLaren’s first line of standard-sized cars attracted the attention of global car fans at the time of launch not only because of its impressive design but also because of its outstanding performance. Using high-quality materials dedicated to manufacturing racing cars with 627-horsepower V12 engines derived from BMW, F1 at that time set a speed record at 386 km/h and quickly found foothold in McLaren fan hearts.
Bugatti Veyron – 402 km/h
Not only powerful, supercars coming from Bugatti also operate stably and have been the fastest model in the world. This is also the peak of technology and pride of Volkswagen Group at the time when it was designed by the best and most experienced engineers of them.
Owning 987 horsepower W16 engine, the speed record of Veyron was set in 2005 at 409 km/h.
SSC Ultimate Aero – 412 km/h
The SSC Ultimate Aero was the fastest model in the world in 2007, surpassing the Veyron itself in the list with a maximum test speed of 412 km/h. Supercar coming from the US uses 6.4L V8 engine that transmits up to1,183 horsepower to the rear. Worth mentioning is the Ultimate Aero has no ABS braking and traction support.
Bugatti Chiron – 420 km/h
The reason why Bugatti’s latest model is only in the middle of the chart is because no one can test the maximum performance this supercar can bring. Usage parameters are provided by Bugatti – stopping at 420 km/h. Whether the monster with a capacity of nearly 1,500 horsepower (exactly 1,479)can overcome this milestone when operating at its maximum, let us wait and see.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – 431 km/h
With Chiron not able to show its true ability, the Veyron Super Sport still holds the No. 1 position in Bugatti’s lineup with a maximum speed of up to 431 km/h. Although the record set by the car in 2010 has been controversial because of the use of electronic speed limit systems (for safety reasons), in the end, Bugatti supercar is still recognized.
