Crazy fast, awesome-looking, and outstandingly well-engineered, supercars and hypercars are everything a real car enthusiast dreams of. However, the sad truth is that most of us will never own one. These automotive works of art cost a lot of money and are available only to a few lucky ones.
That doesn’t keep enthusiasts from constantly talking about them, of course. In the car world, everyone is entitled to an opinion, and thus, everyone has a favorite supercar brand. Read on to see these vehicles and learn all about them!
Bugatti is a company that literally makes money on opulence and insane numbers. Their new production hypercar, called the Chiron, is one of the fastest vehicles ever made. The top speed is measured at 261 mph (420 kph), and the Chiron will accelerate to 60 mph in only 2.5 seconds.
Bugatti achieved this neck-cracking speed using a quad-turbocharged W16 engine (two V8’s slapped together) with a capacity of 8.0-liters. The engine develops 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft and sends the power to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The model is also known for the luxurious interior, which is a contrast to the stripped-down cabins of most competitors. The Chiron is priced at $2.5 million for the “entry-level” model.
