Rip Roaring Fast Cars in 2017!

Last year we brought you “Rip Roaring Fast Cars in 2016” which highlighted the Venom GT taking you up to 270 miles per hour, the McLaren 675LT at 205 mph and the Audi R8 also up to 205 mph.  So will 2017 cars move even faster? As unimaginable as it may seem, the answer is YES!

The Texas manufacturer has beat its own record of 207 mph with the 2017 Hennessy Venom F5 at 290 miles per hour made in America!   This hypercar has 1500 horsepower and reaches speed in two seconds.  However, don’t expect to see too many of these in the grocery store parking lot.  According to Hennessy Venom website: "Production is very limited, making the Hennessey Venom F5 not only one of the quickest and fastest hypercar in the World, but also one of the most exclusive."

The Venom GT that we reported on last year sold 12 of its $1.2 million Venom GTs in its six-year production run. But now, the era of the Venom GT draws to a close.  According to Road and Track, as of January 19th, all these beauties are SOLD OUT

Coming in second place is the Bugatti Chiron with a speed up to 260 mph, 1500 horsepower, and a 16 cylinder engine. This super-car is manufactured by the Bugatti Automotive Group which is owned by Volkswagen.  Start saving your pennies for this one, it is currently running around $2.6 million plus (based on current exchange rate).

Also making the list this year:

  • The Saleen S7 Twin Turbo at 248 mph and $550,000

  • The McLaren F1 at 240 mph and $1.1 million

  • The Noble M600 at 225 mph and $300,000

For something a little more affordable, fast and fun you might want to check these winners out.

  •  The 2017 Lotus Evora 400 will get you 0 to 60 in 4.1 seconds for just under $90,000.  The Lotus is returning to the United States after two years and capable of reaching 186 mph.
  • The 2017 Hyundai Genesis Coupe will take you up to 146 mph at a kinder price tag of around $30,000. 
  • The 2017 Chevrolet Camaro makes a fast highway pass reaching 60 mph in 4.3 seconds for around $27,000. 

Looking even further into the future, the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon promises, even more fun rolling off the assembly line 200 pounds lighter than the Dodge Hellcat.

Looking for speed and fuel efficiency? According to Forbes, this is entirely possible through a few engineering marvels. The Audi TSS gets up to 27 miles per gallon while still capable of making 60 mph in 5.8 seconds.

The Chevrolet Camaro previously mentioned can maintain up to 29 miles per gallon and the Ford Mustang up to 31 miles per gallon hitting 50 in 5.3 seconds. 

Out of all of the dynamic super sonic fast cars which one would you choose? For those willing to travel at hyper speed with all the bells and whistles car manufactures can instill there appears to be something for everyone.

Happy, fast and safe travels to all!  

Rip-Roaring Fast Cars in 2016!

If rip-roaring fast sports cars make you happy then the following models are for you! 

Hennessey Venom (270 miles per hour)

Do we need to say more?  Yes, so much more, because this is the world's fastest production car on the byways made in America!  Always proud to say those words.  Time that we get back to more of what we love and make it in America.  

Capable of speeds of up to 270 miles per hour, the Venom GT has beat out the Bugatti Veyron to make it the world’s fastest production car. This car practically has wings to fly as it spikes from 0-100 miles per hour in 5.6 seconds due to the power of a 1,244 horsepower 7.0-liter Twin TurbochargedV8 engine.

Manufactured in Texas, the $1.2 million Venom GT is easily the fastest road car to ever come from America. There's so much to love about this beautiful speed demon - check out cheatsheet.com to find out more details about the Venom GT and the 10 other fastest cars made in America! 

This car is simply beautiful!  The 2016 McLaren 675LT boast speed of up to 205 MPH with a mighty V8 engine and a 7 speed SSG Transmission.  A super swift model that definitely has gained attention getting power with less weight and more tail than former models. On the floor of the 2015 Geneva auto show in March 2015, McLaren announced that production of its new 675LT supercar will be strictly limited to 500 units only coupes.  To own this beauty the price tag is top of the line at: $349,500, plus shipping and handling.

The fascinating and speed driven R8 now hits 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, a half-second faster than before, with a top speed of 205 mph! The Audi R8 will launch in early 2015; it will come to dealers as a 2016 model, at prices ranging from around $120K for a V-8 to over $250K for an R8 e-tron, built by special order only.

 Audi will build all-electric versions on the R8 on special order. The new R8 e-tron is the first car from an established manufacturer to hold more electric power than a Tesla Model S — 92 kWh, which Audi says gives the e-tron a range of 279 miles, and can be recharged in two hours with Audi's high-energy charger. The e-tron is slower than the V-10 — 3.9 seconds to 62 mph, and a top speed limited to 155 mph — and Audi will only build them upon request, at a price that wasn't disclosed...Find out more about the R8V10 here.   Check out the Youtube video of the smokin hot R8 in action!  

As we look forward to a prosperous and promising 2016... we at Richards' Collision Center wish all of you and those you love a very Happy New Year!
