In the previous section, we looked at 10 powerful hypercars with a minimum power of 1,000 horsepower. Next, in this part 2, let CarPassion continue to explore the remaining hypercars, more powerful and unique, and also have the presence of the world’s most powerful commercial supercar at this time.
Koenigsegg Regera is the first hybrid car of a supercar company based in Angelholm, Sweden. The 5.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine will still be available for the car, producing a maximum capacity of 1,100 horsepower, combined with three electric motors for a total capacity of up to 1,500 horsepower. Koenigsegg developed the Regera Direct Drive (KDD) gearbox with a single gear, connecting the crankshaft and the drivetrain.
Koenigsegg Regera currently holds the record 0 – 400 – 0 km / h. At Rada airport, Sweden, the car controlled by the test driver Sonny Persson completed a record 0 – 400 – 0 km / h in just 31.49 seconds, faster than the time that Koenigsegg Agera RS ever set. up to 2 seconds.
As the successor model of Agera, Jesko still uses a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, producing 1,280 horsepower when using A95 gasoline, but when using E85 biofuel, this turbocharged V8 engine produces up to 1,600 horse power. The maximum torque is achieved at 1,500 Nm at 5,100 rpm, the torque of 1,000 Nm will be stretched from 2,700 rpm to 6,170 rpm.
Koenigsegg equips the car with a new 9-speed gearbox and calls this a Lightning Speed Transmission gearbox. This gearbox uses more clutches based on the dual-clutch transmission principle, allowing gearshifts without being in order. For example, this gearbox can switch from 7 to 4 in an instant without having to go to 6 and 5.
Koenigsegg announced that they will only produce a limited 125 Jesko units with prices starting at $ 2.8 million each.
Launched in 2016, the Bugatti Chiron was launched with the mission of inheriting the fastest supercar of the early 21st century, the Bugatti Veyron. To date, 250 out of 500 Chiron units have been shipped and delivered to users. Since its launch, the Bugatti Chiron has also been used to develop many other Bugatti cars, including the Chiron SuperSport 300+, Chiron Pur Sport, Centodieci, Divo or La Voiture Noire.
Bugatti Chiron is equipped with W16 engine, 8 liter capacity with 4 turbochargers, producing 1,500 horsepower and 1,500 Nm of torque. Vehicles capable of accelerating 0 – 100 km / h in 2.3 seconds and reaches a maximum speed of up to 440 km / h. Bugatti Chiron is sold with prices starting at over $ 2.4 million.
Koenigsegg’s Gemera owns a design inspired by the very first concept car that the company launched – Koenigsegg CC. Along with that are modern lines of Jesko combined with details from the fighter aircraft. The car owns a wheelbase of more than 3 meters, creating a spacious interior space, comfortable for four people. The front and rear luggage compartments can accommodate all four passengers on board.
Providing power for the car is a 3-cylinder engine, a capacity of only 2.0 liters with dual turbochargers and electronic technology “Freevalve”. This tiny engine can make up to 600 hp and 600 Nm of peak torque. Adding power to the car’s engine is a system of three electric motors, generating 1,100 horsepower, bringing the total capacity of the car up to 1,700 hp and 3,600 Nm of torque.
Koenigsegg will only produce Gemera in quantities of 300 units with prices starting from $ 2 million.
After nearly 10 years of launching the first concept, by this year, the first SSC Tuatara was finally delivered to customers. SSC launched Tuatara as a concept in 2010 to replace the previous SSC Ultimate Aero model. After many economic delays, the commercial version was also displayed two years ago at Pebble Beach.
The SSC Tuatara is powered by a 5.9-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine with a rpm limit of 8,800 rpm. The American automaker also said that this engine will produce 1,350 horsepower if 91-octane gasoline is used. The engine of the SSC can use E85 gasoline and with this the car engine can produce a maximum output of up to 1,750 horsepower.
Hennessey Venom F5
Venom F5 is the successor to the Venom GT, the name F5 is taken from the highest level in the tornado scale – F5 – often used to evaluate tornado speeds from 418 km / h – 512 km / h. This name partly demonstrates the goal of breaking the record 300 miles / h (483 km / h) that Hennessey set for this super car.
To do this, Hennessey developed a twin-turbocharged V8 with a capacity of 7.4 liters. Not stopping there, the company also wants to increase the capacity to 8.0 liters and use four turbochargers like Bugatti. This engine is expected to produce a maximum output of 1,600 hp and 1,763 Nm of torque. Vehicles will use rear-wheel drive with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. Braking will be done by Brembo, lubricants will be used from Pennzoil and Shell.
Beginning of the electric sports car era in 2005, the Tesla Roadster was brought back to 2017 by the automaker to further assert its position in the market.
