Exotic fast cars are the stuff of dreams for most people because so few of us can afford the 6 digit price tags (some even have 7 digits) that come with them. In the quest for the best performance exotic car, there are many variables to consider, and not everyone will agree on which car is truly the best exotic speedster. In fact, opinions about exotic sports cars change with the wind, and almost all enthusiasts have their personal favorites. While determining which one is best can be difficult, the below list of exotic sports cars includes the models that have the most support for the title.
With a twin turbocharged 6.4 liter V-8 engine that produces nearly 1200 horsepower, the SSC Ultimate Aero TT holds the record for being the world’s fastest exotic sports car. The vehicle uses an ultra light carbon fiber composite in its construction that is very similar to that of the Chevrolet Corvette. If you’re looking for the speed champ, this is the vehicle for you.
The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is one of the fastest and most expensive exotic sports cars ever made. With a top speed almost as fast as the SSC Ultimate Aero TT, the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is one of the most highly sought after vehicles in the world – for those that can afford it. This Bugatti can go from 0 to 60 in under 2.5 seconds.
The Koenigsegg CCX can accelerate from 0 to 100 mph in a mind blowing 3.2 seconds. This makes it the fastest accelerating vehicle in the world. Its award winning aerodynamic design and use of state of the art carbon fiber elements in its body shell make it one of the lightest super exotic cars on the road. What is perhaps most surprising about this vehicle is its relatively small 4.7 liter V-8 engine that produces an incredible 806 horsepower.
Italian super car maker Ferrari has been making exotic sports cars for perhaps as long as any other exotic car manufacturer in the world, and the Enzo is their flagship vehicle. With a mammoth V12 engine that produces 840 horsepower and nearly 600 foot pounds of torque, the Enzo is one of the world’s fastest production vehicles. It is also considered to be one of the world’s best built super cars and is a prize among collectors everywhere.
For those that can afford his vehicles, Horatio Pagani creates some of the finest exotic sports cars in the world. The Pagani Zonda F is powered by a 555 horsepower V12 engine manufactured by Mercedes-Benz and can zoom from 0 to 125 mph in under 5 seconds. However, what is even more impressive is that the vehicle can come to a complete stop from this speed in only 4.4 seconds.
