The fastest cars with a turbo engineDecember 9, 2019
In the modern world, supercars are still produced with both turbocharged and atmospheric engines. Therefore, experts decided to present the TOP-8 of the fastest cars with a turbo engine.
The history of turbo engines began back in the 60s of the last century. But in those days they were still raw, and gave a dubious advantage. Nevertheless, the engineers managed to realize all the benefits of turbocharging. Therefore, the experts decided to make their own rating of the fastest turbocharged cars.
In the first place was the Hennessey Venom F5 hypercar, introduced back in 2017. This model is equipped with a 7.4-liter V8 biturbo engine, capable of developing up to 1,622 horsepower and 1,762 Nm of torque. Paired with him is a seven-speed robotic sports transmission. This allows it to accelerate to 300 km / h in just 9 seconds. The maximum speed is limited to 484 km / h.
In second place was the most famous hypercar Bugatti Chiron, which debuted in 2016. An 8.0-liter W16 turbo engine is installed under the hood, capable of developing up to 1,500 horsepower. Acceleration to 100 km/h takes 2.4 seconds. The maximum speed is 420 km / h. The three leaders closes the little-known 1992 Lotec Sirius model. A 6.4-liter turbo engine is installed under the hood, developing up to 1,220 horses. Acceleration to 100 km/h takes 3.8 seconds. The maximum speed is 402 km / h.
The fourth place went to the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo with a 7.0-liter engine for 750 horses. The maximum speed is 399 km / h. W Motors Fenyr was in fifth place with a top speed of 385 km / h. The sixth was the Porsche 9ff TR 1000 with a top speed of 391 km / h.
