The first German car, engineered by Karl Benz, was a one cylinder ¾ hp four-stroke engine that topped out at 10 mph, according to the car enthusiasts at Flemings Ultimate Garage. Today, it is not uncommon for vehicles to have upwards of 940 hp and the ability to go nearly 30 times that first top speed. Here, the team at Flemings Ultimate Garage pays tribute to the world’s fastest exotic vehicles.
Koenigsegg Agera R
At an average cost of $2.1 million this is easily one of the most expensive exotic vehicles in the world, reports Flemings Ultimate Garage. The Koenigsegg Agera R is a sleekly designed Swedish gem that has not only driven itself into the Guinness Book Of World Records for speed but has also set the precedent for effective braking in high-speed vehicles. According to Flemings Ultimate Garage, the Koenigsegg Agera R has an average speed of 273 mph, which is 6 mph faster than the popular Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
Bugatti is a brand that has raced in and out of vehicle enthusiasts’ attention over the last 100 years. In 2005, Bugatti made a new name for itself with the debut of the Veyron. This 267 mph two-tone Street Demon has a base model price of $1.5 million and can be customized to suit the owner’s demands.
SSC Ultimate Aero
Though Bugatti has demonstrated staying power over the last century, the SSC brand is a newcomer. Founded in 1999, SSC – which stands for Shelby SuperCars – builds this road warrior with a high-tech-wind-tunnel-tested carbon fiber body. Flemings Ultimate Garage describes this as a hot car with a relatively mild price tag of just $740,000. The car’s 1287 hp engine boasts 1112 lb-ft torque and tops out in excess of 257 mi./h.
