Just like the first kiss, an interview for a dream job, or the moment you get down on one knee to propose to your lady, a fine fast ride sends shivers down your spine and makes pure adrenaline pump through your veins. You may be wandering in the dark for years before you see that one four-wheeled baby that just tells you plain and simple “I will take you to the moon and back in the matter of seconds”. Although there’s no shortage of ways to measure the tech excellence, ranking cars by speed acceleration may be one of the most thrilling.
ASTON MARTIN ONE-77
With the top speed of 220 mph and 0-60” acceleration in under 3,4s, Aston Martin One-77 is not just a supercar, but a true work of art. At least this is what the owners of the only 77 existing exemplars believe. Or believed when they spent 1.5 million euro each – that’s the price of owning the perfection.
One of the most expensive Lamborghini cars, the exotic Reventon, accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 3,3 seconds, has a top speed of 211 mph and was only produced in the quantity of 20 coupés, one of which is owned by Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov.
The top speed is 233 mph, the 0-60” acceleration is 2,9s. Danish-made and almost entirely hand-assembled, Zenvo ST1 is not just hot, it literally caught fire during its Tope Gear test drive. Still the model got its fair share of traction with the mighty and famous of this world standing in line to get their hands on this baby (and pay $1,8 million for it).
The Pagani 850,000 euro masterpiece was named after the Quechua god of wind. The top speed of 210 mph and 2,8s 0-60” acceleration are surely the characteristics that the Italian sports car inherited directly from the divine entity.
Ever wondered how to wisely spend these $9,5 millions you spared by skipping lunch? Lamborghini Veneno, exclusively made in only five exemplars, with its 2,8s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 221 mph may be the investment of lifetime.
KOENIGSEGG CCXR TREVITA
They say that love is blind. We say that Koenigsegg CCXR TREVITA’s unique fiber bodywork that sparkles like a million of diamonds is just as blinding. But if you’re more into loving things conditionally, Koenigsegg’s 2,8s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 217 mph is what will do it for you.
FERRARI LAFERRARI APERTA
Love that wind in your hair? Ferrari’s Ferrari Laferrari Aperta provides you with the experience of open top driving that you never had before. The 2.6s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 217 mph might play a role in it.
Koenigsegg Agera R
Tech improvement should not be attained at the expense of the nature. With its impressive 2,6s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 249 mph, Koenigsegg Agera R is a big step towards both mechanical finesse and environmental friendliness.
Having made several sacrifices along the way, Koenigsegg achieved its ultimate goal for the ONE:1 model: the 1:1 power to weight ratio. Other truly stunning characteristics included the 2,5s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 248 mph.
LAMBORGHINI SESTO ELEMENTO
Lamborghini Sesto Elemento is enticingly fast and outrageously pricey. For $2,5 million, you will get the 2,4s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 210 mph, but won’t even be able to legally drive it on US roads, only on racing tracks.
With its P1 model, MClaren claims to have created the most involving sports car to drive and outpaced its rivals in every aspect. However with its 2,4s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 217 mph, we only put MClaren P1 on the fourth place in our ranking.
Hennessey Venom GT
Hennessey Venom GT was developed to possess the excellence that would be unmatched even in 25 years. Although it failed to become the car with the fastest acceleration in the world, we honor Hennessey Venom GT and its 2,4s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 270,5 mph with the third place.
Buggati is associated with technological finesse, and its 2016 Bugatti Chiron is no exception. The 2,3s 0-60” acceleration and top speed of 261 mph totally justify the fuss around the supercar.
Porsche 918 Spyder
Porshe 918 Spyder is literally dreams coming true. For those who don’t want the technological innovation to compromise the utility, and impressive specifications lead to increased consumptions, Porsche 918 just slays it with its 2,2s 0-60”acceleration and top speed of 211 mph.
