What makes a powerful car, aside from its stylish brawny body kit, is an intricately designed exhaust system suitable for maximum performance. And with monster engines that can accelerate these sexy beasts to over 100km/h in just a few seconds, you can’t help but stare and marvel whenever a care of such caliber roars through your streets.
Fasten your seatbelts, ladies and gentlemen, because we’re about to take a look at the five insanely powerful cars that deserve the Lightning McQueen seal of approval.
First up is the masterpiece of Shelby Supercars. With an engine power of 1,350 horsepower and a 993 Kw torque, this 2011 prototype is capable of achieving a speed of 100km/h within 2.8 seconds and quickly max out at 430km/h.
Koenigsegg Agera One: 1
Though our fourth placer didn’t make it to the very top, she sure can break banks. Priced at 2.5 million dollars, this mid-engine sports car was designed by its Swedish car manufacturer to succeed their CCX/CCXR models, reducing weight and increasing power to make 400 km/h possible in 20 seconds time. If you are planning on buying an Agera One, you better act fast! There are only 6 units made and four have already been sold.
Lamborghini Aventador LP1600
If you’ve been saving for a precious Lamborghini all your life, then better get the fastest of them all by taking home the Aventador LP1600. The Germany based luxury car modifier gave the already sleek Aventador more muscle, increasing its horsepower to a full 1600 hp – talk about a Lambo on steroids!
Running on a 6.5L V12 engine, this 2-million-dollar Aventador mod can reach its 370km/h max speed before you can even say Ricky Bobby’s famous tagline, “I wanna go fast!”
Red Victor 3
A Vauxhall Victor FD 1967 frame houses one of the most classic engines that could light roads ablaze! This latest Red Victor mod is one that is pumped up to the extremes with its 8.8-litre, twin-turbocharged GM V8 Chevrolet engine.
What’s even more amazing is that in 2012, it was crowned the quickest and fastest street legal car by conquering a quarter mile in a record-setting time of 6.9 seconds. How would you feel riding next to a Vauxhall mod with a 3000 horsepower Chevy inside? Not as intimidated as with the next one probably.
A mysterious, sixteen-cylindered supercar vaguely unveiled in last year’s Dubai International Motor Show is already being dubbed as “a legend in the history of cars” in several corners of the globe. Although its crafters has been unclear with its specifications on their website, audiences and critics from all over the world have stated that the Devel Sixteen delivers a total of 5000 horsepower.
Well, if the Devel Sixteen is what it claims to be, it would be rightfully dubbed the most powerful to ever ride on the streets. To make it official, why not conduct a road sample for the ages, eh?
