Here are the top 3 fastest engines that are pushing engine performance benchmarks to new frontiers:
1600 hp Hennessey Twin Turbo V8 Engine
The incredibly powerful 1600 bhp engine powers the Venom F5. Hennessey, Pennzoil and Shell have jointly designed this amazing hypercar with a single goal in mind: to make the fastest car on the planet.
Thanks to the 1600 bhp engine, excellent aerodynamics and superior engineering, the Venom F5 can accelerate from 0 to 300 km/h in under 10 seconds. This makes it faster than the Formula 1 race cars. This hypercar is designed to go up to 301 mph, which has been made possible by an extremely low 0.33 drag coefficient.
Only 24 cars like Venom F5 exist, making it an extremely rare and exotic hypercar. Its price tag is an astonishing $1.6 million. The 1600 bhp Hennesey twin turbo V8 is currently the most powerful race car engine worldwide.
Koenigsegg Regera 5.0 L Twin-Turbocharged V8
The story behind this exotic sports car is intriguing. The founder of the prestigious high-performance car manufacturer Koenigsegg was impressed by the ability of the Tesla Model S P85+ to instantaneously deliver power with hardly any turbo lag or the need to downshift. Christian von Koenigsegg purchased this electric car in 2013. He understood immediately that such remarkable acceleration and high performance was not possible with an internal combustion engine even for Formula 1 cars.
However, electric motors present a dilemma. They have superior acceleration, but can’t achieve excessively high speeds. Internal combustion engines, on the other hand, can achieve top speeds, but have lower acceleration in comparison to electric engines. He devised a fantastic engineering solution to resolve this predicament. The answer was an innovative hybrid engine that combines the best of both worlds. The internal combustion engine works in conjunction with 3 electric motors powered by a 4.5 kWh battery pack. The electric motors help accelerate the car rapidly and the internal combustion engine takes over at higher speeds.
Bugatti Chiron 1,479 Hp 8.0 L Quad-Turbocharged W16
This is the most powerful car ever made by the legendary French race car manufacturer Bugatti. The staggering 1,479 hp engine is a major advancement over the previous engine that powered the Bugatti Veyron. At peak power, the engine can generate an astounding 1,600 Nm of torque. The 1,479 horsepower engine has 295 hp more than the fastest variant of the Veyron.
