TRANSCRIPT

  • 2010 NEED FOR

  • The Shelby SSC Ultimate Aeros twin turbo V8 engine propels you to 100 miles per hour in a little over 11 seconds, making it the fastest production car on the market. The all carbon fiber Koenigsegg CCX is so light and slippery it has the drag coefficient of a fish, enabling it to reach a top speed of 245 miles per hour. Forget about hybrids, sport cars are faster and sexier than ever. Here are the fastest production supercars of 2010.

    Its been the 911 Turbos central theme since Day One: Do more with less. Use the pressure of turbocharged air to boost the power from a compact, lightweight engine. Then place that engine at the rear of the chassis, where it can aid traction. These are permanent fixtures in a successful concept. But that is no reason for Porsche engineers to rest on their laurels. The new 911 Turbo features a new generation of engine.Displacement has been increased by 0.2 liters to 3,800 cc, output to 500 horsepower at 6000 rpm, and torque to 480 lb.-ft. between 1950 rpm and 5000 rpm. With the overboost function of the optional Sport Chrono Package Turbo with dynamic engine mount system, the torque is increased to 516 lb.-ft.

    The standard Murcilago LP640 is already a rocket. With a monstrous 6.5-liter V-12 producing 632 hp, we clocked the 4060-lb coupe at 3.2 seconds to 60 mph in a recent compari-son test. That time trails only the 2.5-second sprint of the Bu-gatti Veyron 16.4 among the cars weve recently tested, and the LP670-4 SV should narrow the gap. Beyond the weight loss, power has also been bumped up to 661 hp. Lamborghini says the SV will catapult to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, so a 0-to-60-mph time of 3.0 seconds could be within reach.

    The V-12s max power is reached at 8000 rpm, while all 487 lb-ft of torque are available at 6500 rpm. The increased power comes from a modified intake system, valvetrain optimization, and increased valve lift, says the Italian automaker. Custom-ers will have their choice of six-speed manual or e-gear automated manual transmissions.

    First appeared at Geneva at a Auto Show in 2005, the all carbon fiber super car can reach 60 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds. With power of 443 kW/594 hp, and a top speed that passes 215 mph (346 km/h), Zonda F makes Pagani manu-facturer to be at the level of another independent of famous super cars manufactures like Porsche, Lamborghini or Ferrari.

    A car made by combining the sensibility of Juan Manuel Fangio, a F1 world champion 5 time in a row, about all that is related with technicality and the advance technology of Pagani, has a lot to offer, from the power to weight ratio of 384 W/kg, the six-speed manual transmission, the aerodynamic vents all around, not at least the carbon/ceramic brakes that allows the Zonda F to be on the top list of the cars with spectacular braking from 180 mph to 0 mph.

    The V12 engine is a lot cooler because of the design of the car, larger in front, 7.3 liter Mercedes-Benz engine can reach now 620 bhp and gives almost 561 pound-feet of torque peak-ing at 4000 rpm. It has a length of 174.6 inch, a width of 80.9 inch and a height just about 44.9 inch.

    Even if its said to be a priceless super car, it will be on the market in 2008 at a base price of $667,321.

    The Jaguar Xj220 is one of the forgotten super cars and it was produced in 1992 by Jaguar. This super car was the fastest car at that time. The vehicle features a 3.5 L V6 twin-turbo engine, which generates 542 horsepower at 7200 rpm. It has a 6-speed manual transmission, reaching 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 217 mph, an amazing speed for 1992. A total of 281 Jaguar XJ220 were produced and the original price was around $650,000. As of 2009, this car is worth around $150,000.

    Many potential buyers put up a deposit of $80,000 USD to be on the waiting list to purchase this car. Since the production of this car was very limited (220 units per year and 350 max), many prospective buyers intend to purchase and sell this car right afterward to make an instant profit. However, due to many com-plications and a declined in the economy, many customers were unhappy and some even sued Jaguar.

    McLaren F1 is the most powerful supercar produced by McLaren between the years 1994-1998, from the 100 cars: 65 are street versions, 5 are LMs (which was build to honor victory at Le Mans in 1995) and 3 are Gts (the road versions of the 1997 F1 GTR racing car) and 28 F1 GTR made for the roads.The Chief Engineer Gordon Murroy`s concept refers to the use of expensive materials like: carbon, titanium, gold and for the first time, the use of carbon fiber monocoque chassis.

    Power? Here is a good question, the car has the power output at 627 horsepower or has an imperial HP. The super car is pow-ered by an 6 L V12 engine built by BMW, 627 HP at 7400 rmp, same as road car version.

    The car has a top speed of 386 km/h or 240 mph (very good speed for 1994) and can reach a speed of 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h in 6.7 seconds and 300 km/h in 30 seconds. The McLaren F1 was the fastest car in the world until Bugatti Veyron was introduced.

    When it was first introduced, it was priced at $970,000. This type of car is not produced anymore and it is very rare to find one of these on the market.

    Not just a super car that carries on the name of racing driver Pierre Veyron, who, while racing for the original Bugatti car manufacturer, won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is the second fastest car in the world and the most powerful, it can easily pass as a super hero`s car like Batman. It has the fastest acceleration speed, reaching 60 mph in 2.6 seconds.Endowed with W16 engine-16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylin-ders fed by four turbochargers, a dual-clutch DSG computer-controlled manual transmission, the Veyron has a length is 4462 mm (175.8 in) a wide of 1998 mm (78.7 in) and hight of 1206 mm (47.5 in). Counting a sum of 10 radiators, for the engine cooling system, for transmission oil, a heat exchanger for the air to liquid intercoolers, for engine oil etc., the car has a power to weight ratio of 529 bhp/tonne.

    If we talk about performance we are dazzled by this super-cars power to reach 200 and 300 km/h (124 and 186 mph) in 7.3 and respectively 16.7 seconds, wining for herself the name of the quickest-accelerating production car in history. If we count the fact that the top speed of Bugatti Veyron is 253.2 miles per hour (407.5 km/h), a speed limited electronically to prevent tire damage (it can run even faster) we can under-stand why this spectacular car must consume 40.4 L/100 km (4.82 mpg) when it`s running at top speed and in city driving 24.1 L/100 km.

    A model drove by superstars like Tom Cruise, couldn`t name itself cheap, rising the Bugatti Veyron at least of $1,700,000, a price that measures it`s quality. Many new designs has been released since 2006, the color might have changed, but the speed and power remain the same.

    The SSC Ultimate Aero is a powerful engine sports car manu-factured by Shelby SuperCars. The precious SSC Ultimate Aero TT is the worlds fastest production car, which travels at a top speed of 257 mph.The new version known as 2009 SSC Ultimate Aero has been modified where some changes have been added to the exteriors, interiors, and the increase of horsepower about 15%. The most important change is the single piece aluminum block engine that improves the oiling capabilities and structure of the engine, so that the SSC Ultimate Aero produces an output of about 1287 horsepower.

    At the cost of $654,000 and with a newly designed engine, the Ultimate Aero can reach a maximum speed of 270 mph, which is a world record speed. It can reach from 0 to 60 mph in 2.7 secs. The front face of the car has been redesigned with improved aerodynamics and carbon fiber which draws 20% additional air to the radiators for better cooling.

    The AeroBrakeTM system has been introduced in this car which is a rear spoiler system that can be controlled by a switch. The spoiler speed can be set depending on the pres-sure applied on the brake pedal.

    The interiors are mostly designed of carbon fibers that bound the doors, steering column, speedometer and tachometer.
