With regards to cars and their performance in general, the most electrifying and zapping thing about them is their speed. These four wheeled beasts bring about an adrenaline rush in your veins and are the finest representations of human advancement in technology and engineering. A considerate number of hypercars in the 1,000+ horsepower category listing estimated top speeds in the low to mid 270 have shown up after Bugatti Veyron Super Sport made a 268 mph world record back in July 2011. The most prominent among them was the Hennessey Venom GT, which broke the record of Veyron achieving 270.4 mph at the Kennedy Space Center. Now if we talk about the theoretical top speed, one of the fastest cars in the world is Koenigsegg Agera R. Of course, some super cars like Bugatti Chiron have the potential to beat all high speed records, but that didn’t happen yet.
The Koenigsegg Agera R is an even more hardcore version of Agera family, with an asserted top speed of around 273 mph. The Agera R was introduced in March 2011 at the Geneva Motor Show sporting a Speed Racer attire theme and unique Michelin tires. The car accompanies a 5.0 liter twin turbocharged V8 DOHC engine with a compression ratio of 9.0:1 and is fit for creating a noteworthy 1,200 pound-feet of torque and horsepower of 1,140, consequently empowering the vehicle to zoom from halt to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and achieve speeds from 0 to 186 mph within 11.7 seconds (a world record).
The Agera R’s body has been produced using pre-impregnated carbon fiber/kevlar with lightweight fortifications. The car’s hardtop roof is stowable under the front hood lid. The chassis is also created employing carbon fiber with an aluminum honeycomb frame that comes incorporated with fuel tanks for ideal weight sharing and protection. The rear wing is electronically customizable with auto setting or manual control in order to have as little compromise as possible between low drag and down force.
The Agera R was also the first vehicle in the market to include a dual-clutch transmission in only one-input-shaft. This brings in the faster shift times and acceleration, subsequently making the Agera R one heck of a race car. The new insights about the 2014 model include carbon fiber wheels, wind-in-the-hair thrills, and targa-style roof panels for high speed. This fastest car in the world is now accessible for a price tag of £1.1 million.
