The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest street-legal production car in the world, capable of reaching 267.856mph. The car is electronically limited to 258mph, which stops the tyres from disintegrating at its top speeds! Valued at approximately £1.2 million, the car was unveiled at various events in 2010 including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
A car based on a concept car is always going to be a splendid example of engineering, and the Chiron is no exception to this, modelled on the Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo concept car. The car can reach tested speeds of 250mph in 32.6 seconds and can reach 60mph in 2.4 seconds according to the manufacturer. Similar to the Veyron, the Chiron can only safely reach speeds of 261 before the tyres begin to cave under the pressure, but the anticipated top speed of the Chiron is 288mph.
Named after the founder of the company Enzo Ferrari, this car was developed using Formula One technology such as
carbon-fibre body, electrohydraulic shift transmission and carbon fibre-reinforced silicon carbide ceramic disc brakes. The car can reach 60mph in 3.14 seconds and 100mph in 6.6 seconds.
Lamborghini Huracan Performante
Named after a bull famed for it bravery in the fighting arena, the Aventador was unveiled to replace the Murcielago. Officially its top speed is 217mph, but this was blown out of the water by Sport Auto Magazine, who registered a speed of 230mph. Unveiled at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2015, the SV Roadster is 50kg lighter than a standard roadster due to numerous weight-saving techniques.
