Auto giants around the world com­pete end­less­ly in pow­er, speed and oth­er para­me­ters, cre­at­ing more and more ser­i­al record hold­ers, set­ting more and more new records and devel­op­ing more and more advanced tech­nolo­gies. In this com­pi­la­tion, we will intro­duce you to the main record hold­ers among pro­duc­tion cars at the moment. As they say, there is no lim­it to per­fec­tion, and it is quite pos­si­ble that in the near fore­see­able future, all of the fol­low­ing super­cars can push new devel­op­ments, but in the mean­time, we will learn a lit­tle about mod­ern record hold­ers.

Car record holders

So, first on our list is a super­car that is cur­rent­ly con­sid­ered the fastest at accel­er­a­tion from 0 to 100 km / h — Maxximus G‑Force does it in 2.1 sec­onds.

Maxximus G Force

A car with a 1622 hp Chevro­let V8 engine. based on the Ulti­ma GTR, but with a more advanced chas­sis and two tur­bocharg­ers.

The cost of such a “toy” in 2009 was $3 mil­lion.


The ser­i­al pro­duc­tion of this mod­el was orig­i­nal­ly planned, but the demand did not meet the expec­ta­tions of its cre­ators and at the moment only a few cars have been sold, which, nev­er­the­less, actu­al­ly makes it a ser­i­al mod­el.


The next car on our list, the Keat­ing TKR, was the fastest car in the world in 2009, reach­ing 418.6 kilo­me­ters per hour on a dry salt lake in Utah.

Keating TKR

In 2010, its cre­ators want­ed to “step over” the mark of 480 km / h, but, unfor­tu­nate­ly, the car crashed.


As we know, at the moment the record is bro­ken by the noto­ri­ous Bugat­ti Vey­ron Super Sport — today it is 431.072 km / h, but Keat­ing can be left on our list if only for his pow­er.

After all, the pow­er of the 7‑liter V‑shaped “eight”, which is the heart of the Keat­ing TKR, is 1832 hp. with a curb weight of 995 kg!

Due to the low cost, Antho­ny Keat­ing man­aged to sell a good num­ber of Keat­ing TKR copies, at the moment he con­tin­ues to improve his cre­ation.

The third record hold­er is the leader in sev­er­al “nom­i­na­tions” at once — engine size, torque, accel­er­a­tion to 200 km / h and accel­er­a­tion to 300 km / h.

Weineck Cobra 780cuiCobra

2006 Wei­neck Cobra 780cui equipped with a 12782cc V8 engine3 or almost 12.8 liters with a max­i­mum torque of 1760 Nm!


The ini­tial pow­er of this mon­ster is “only” 1115 hp. with a curb weight of 989 kg, but lat­er, to par­tic­i­pate in drag rac­ing, the engine of one Wei­neck Cobra 780cui was boost­ed to 4500 “hors­es”!


In first gear, you can accel­er­ate up to 160 km / h, while accel­er­a­tion to “hun­dreds” will take about 2.2 sec­onds, up to 200 km / h — 4.9 sec­onds, and 10 sec­onds after the start, the car reach­es 300 km / h !


Only pro­fes­sion­al drag­sters can com­pete with such a result, so the almost ser­i­al Wei­neck Cobra 780cui worth $650,000 is a very tasty morsel for fans of crazy speeds and accel­er­a­tions.

True, it is not known for cer­tain how things are with han­dling, because. usu­al­ly cars with such pow­er, accel­er­a­tion dynam­ics and rather “non-aero­dy­nam­ic” appear­ance have seri­ous prob­lems with agili­ty)

Weineck Cobra 780cui

Quite anoth­er impor­tant advan­tage of any pow­er­ful car is the effi­cien­cy of its brak­ing sys­tem …


In this regard, the absolute leader is the 2012 Chevro­let Corvette ZR1 Cen­ten­ni­al Edi­tion, whose brak­ing dis­tance dur­ing emer­gency brak­ing from 100 km / h is only 28.3 meters!

More­over, in com­par­i­son with the above super­cars, the cost of this Corvette is only $ 130 thou­sand, almost for noth­ing)

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Centennial Edition

Of course, one can­not ignore the afore­men­tioned Bugat­ti Vey­ron Super Sport, which in 2010 set the still unbro­ken top speed record among pro­duc­tion cars — 431 km / h.

Bugatti Veyron SuperSport

You can read more about this leg­endary super­car in a sep­a­rate arti­cle, here we only note that the cost of exact copies of the record-break­ing car was $ 2.4 mil­lion apiece.


Final­ly, I would like to write about anoth­er extra­or­di­nary car — the 2011 SSC Tuatara — the cre­ation of the Amer­i­can com­pa­ny Shel­by Super Cars, which has long become famous thanks to the SSC Ulti­mate Aero TT — the very one that for 2 years held the palm among the fastest cars on the plan­et.

The new super­car, accord­ing to its cre­ators, is able to break the cur­rent Bugat­ti record — for this pur­pose, a com­plete­ly new body shape was designed, engine pow­er was increased, and the car itself was as light as pos­si­ble and equipped with the most mod­ern 7‑speed gear­box with a triple clutch disc.


It remains only to wait for the moment when the com­pa­ny decides to final­ly chal­lenge speed and show the world what their new super­car is capa­ble of.


Basi­cal­ly, that’s all for now. The list turned out to be small, but we tried to cov­er all the impor­tant cat­e­gories of records for the cur­rent super­cars. We will con­tin­ue to fol­low the devel­op­ment of auto­mo­tive tech­nol­o­gy in the future!
