The automotive industry is growing exponentially, with companies introducing speed monsters each year. In this roundup, we have sampled the fastest cars in 2022. Find out which one can get to the finish line first.
1. Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
Even though the speed is still theoretical, the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut is the fastest racing car today. Under the bonnet, the Swedish giant has packed it with a 5L twin-turbo V8 engine complemented by a 9-speed multi-clutch Light Speed Transmission (LST) system. According to the company’s target, the Jesko Absolut should have a top speed of 310mph. Still, the latest reports indicate it could push the limits further to 330mph.
2. Hennessey Venom F5
At number two is the Hennessey Venom F5, powered by a 6.6-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and a 7-speed single-clutch automated CIMA manual transmission. Its top speed is still theoretical, but the manufacturer claims it will exceed 311mph. Unfortunately, only 24 units are in the pipeline, so you will have to be a moneybag to get one, as the pre-tax price is in the region of £1.58m.
3. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+
In the list of the fastest cars, you can’t miss a Bugatti. In this roundup, the French automobile manufacturer is represented by the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+. It boasts the Chiron’s quad-turbo 8.0L W16 engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Its electronically capped top speed is 273mph, but the company will allow owners to push it further to 300mph.
The above are the three fastest racing cars in 2022. Other worthy mentions include the SSC Tuatara (286mph), Rimac Nevera (259mph), McLaren Speedtail (250mph), and Aston Martin Valkyrie (250mph). But the race is not over. Each car manufacturer is working overtime to beat the other, so expect faster cars as we usher in 2023.
