Well, and, of course, one cannot fail to mention the 5-mode electronic the control system that controls the response to the pedals changes clearance, shock absorber stiffness, sensitivity stabilization system and much more.

In addition, the company often refines automobile models of other brands.

The American company was working hard to create its own supercar competing with the Bugatti company, then developing your Bugatti Chiron. The result of hard and painstaking development became Hennessey Venom F5. It is based on a fundamentally new chassis from light carbon fiber, and under the hood of this “poisonous” baby 7.4 liter twin-turbo V8 powertrain Such power allows (according to the developer) the car to accelerate to 100 km / h in a record 1.7 seconds, and in 20 seconds the car is capable of overcome the mark of 400 km / h on the speedometer.

In essence, the Venom F5 model is a qualitatively advanced Venom GT – more powerful, hardy, tech, aerodynamic. Carnivorous carbon body, 6-speed manual gearbox or a robotic version with one clutch – all this is Venom F5. The company decided to abandon the DSG analog box due to weight saving and insufficient reliability.

If desired, the set of vehicle options can be expanded and upgrade: for this you have to lay out on top another half a million dollars.

Unique models not included in the rating

A couple more examples of amazingly fast four-wheelers, which for one reason or another are not suitable for ranking, but definitely worth attention.

Lamborghini Aventador – the fastest police car

At one time, this car made a lot of noise, although on the title of the fastest did not pretend: under the hood he 2.8 liter turbocharged 6-cylinder engine with a total output of 420 horsepower. Nevertheless, the model is quite decent and the best on Russian open spaces: its speed limit is 300 km / h.

hrust SSC – the fastest turbine machine

hrust SSC

Turbine cars go beyond our rating since similar devices are not considered as an option for moving around the city the road. And, nevertheless, turbine cars are considered the fastest in the world. One vivid example is the world record holder. on land – Thrust SSC. In 1997, this jet “monster” swept through the Nevada desert (USA) at a speed of 1227 km / h.
