2. SSC Ultimate Aero:
Top speed 256.15 mph (412.23 km/h), 0-60 mph in 2.78 secs.1287 hp and 1112 Nm torque. Engine: 6.4 litres V8 with Twin Turbo. (Pictures are not current, but very close to latest model) Born in the USA.
Top speed 250 mph (400 km/h), 0-60 mph in 2.9 secs. 910 hp and 1100 Nm torque. Engine: 4.7 litres V8 with Twin Turbo. Swedish road rocket.
4 .Gumpert Apollo:
Top speed 224 mph (360 km/h), 0-60 mph in 3.1 secs. 650 hp and 850 Nm torque. Engine: 4.2 litres V8 with Twin Turbo. It is not pretty but it has lapped the 14-mile Nordschliefe in 7m 11.57s, so it is fast on track. Made with german precision.
5. Pagani Zonda R:
Top speed 220 mph (350 km/h), 0-60 mph in 2.7 secs. 750 hp and 710 Nm torque. Engine: 6 litres V12. Italian beauty with beast under the bonnet. If you compare Pagani Zonda models to each other like chicken wing sauce, this would be ‘suicide’.
Top speed 220 mph (350 km/h), 0-60 mph in 2.8 secs. 625 hp and 560 Nm torque. Engine: 5 litres V8. It’s mean and british.
It is not Lada, Gaz, Uaz or Volga. It is new russian supercar Marussia.
Full of high-tech gadgets, 3.5L V6, 300 hp (can be upgraded to 420 hp), 0-60mph in 5 seconds, top speed over 155mph (250km/h), rear wheel drive and 6-speed automatic. You might think that’s not much from a supercar, but this car is designed to manage as well as on track and in the city traffic. And, take a look how it looks! It is just awesome!
Marussia B2 is a innovative project on creation of the “modular” car with replaceable bodies. The car shows the success of the idea on manufacture of unique, various and distinct models on the basis of a universal platform. Creation of original body of Marussia В2 required only 36 days. There is also extra-light version available which is made only of aluminium and kevlar (850kg).
