For the genuine racing fan, the smell of the race car rubber burning gives an amazing adrenaline rush. Buying such a shockingly fast monster is ridiculously easy these days, with automakers throwing caution to the winds as far as cost and rationality is concerned. Their only aim is to how fast they can really go, with an eye on 300 mph being a distinct possibility in the near future. A list of 2017 model cars, which meet the legal production requirements are ranked below.
Audi R8 V10
The Audi R8 leads in performance with its 5.2 liter V10 engine providing an astonishing 610 hp and 413 lb/ft of torque, which ekes out a top speed of 205 mph. The aluminum and carbon fiber platform has 5 drive settings, with performance being absolutely exclusive to the R8.
Porsche 911 Turbo S
This new model from Porsche manages to reach 205 mph from a 3.8 liter, 580 hp and 553 lb/ft torque, in conjunction with a automatic transmission with seven speeds. The zero to 60 sprint is done in flat 2.5 seconds, which gives you enough justification to brag about when you buy this $189,000 piece of cleverness.
Dodge Viper SRT
Once a ferocious supercar company, the Dodge Viper 2017 SRT is probably the last survivor of the Detroit car maker. The four channel anti lock brake system and the transmission of a truck, the Viper, if not in the right hands is a difficult car to handle. This rear wheel drive boasts of speeds up to 206 mph, 645 hp and 600 lb/ft hp.
With a price tag of $ 2.6 million and up, the Chiron’s turbo powered 1500 hp W-16 engine cruises at just 261 miles/ hr. It is surely destined to go much faster if they want to make the big spenders part with a few million. As it is, the Bugatti Chiron is today the fastest new racing car in the world in 2017.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
The name Valkyrie is the result of the latest collaboration between Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin, which have come out with this 250 mph creation. The Cosworth 6.5 liter V12 engine together with a seven speed automatic dual clutch transmission generates 4000 lbs of downforce. The car weight is a low 2,200 lbs because of the carbon plus fiber designed body, which enables the vehicle to hold lateral acceleration on curves and corners up to an astounding four times the force of gravity.
The 2017 model of the $450,000 Ford GT hits a high speed of 216 mph. The active aerodynamic system installed generates 400 lbs of downforce at a speed of 150 mph. Though, the GT had the dubious reputation of the worst car to be made in the US at one time, this latest model has erased all doubts and created a lot of anticipation in race car lovers all over.
