In the fight for the title of most powerful and fastest production car in the world, there’s always something new on the horizon, some clever new speed tool that manages to warp what’s possible with four wheels and an engine, setting a new standard by which all other competitors are judged. This is exactly that, the latest and greatest in the world of hypercars.
5,000 Hp is not a joke, and it is safe to say that the Devel Sixteen that claims to be capable of hedging out that kind of power has no contenders in the market. Wait a minute, Devel Sixteen? We think the makers got the spelling wrong. ‘Devil’ Sixteen is probably what they were going for. It’s powered by a quad-turbocharged 7.2L V16 engine that produces an insane 5,000 Hp, enabling it to reach a top speed of 347.9mph.
Arash AF10 Hybrid
This wild hybrid hypercar relies on a five-motor “warp drive” to put out 2,080 Hp. Things start with a 900 Hp supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine, but it gets help from four German-designed electric motors. With power from a 32-kWh lithium-ion battery, those four motors provide the additional 1,180 Hp needed to reach the 2,080 Hp total. Combined torque slides in at 1,681 lb⋅ft.
Koenigsegg Regera Concept
The Koenigsegg Regera produces a reported total of 1,800 Hp through a hybrid powertrain, but the power peaks of the electric motors and the internal combustion engine are spread out, or not simultaneous, leaving a maximum combined mechanical output of 1,500 Hp and 1,475 lb⋅ft of torque.
Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo Concept
The Bugatti Vision Gran Turismo is a single-seater concept car developed by Bugatti and was manufactured in Molsheim, France. The Vision Gran Turismo contains the Bugatti Veyron’s W16, but has been enhanced to deliver more power, producing 1,650 Hp and 1,165 lb⋅ft.
Hennessey Venom F5
The Hennessey Venom F5 is an high-performance sports car manufactured by Hennessey Special Vehicles. The Venom F5 is the first completely in-house developed and constructed vehicle from the company. The car is powered by an “all-American” 7.4 L twin-turbo V-8 that produces more than 1,600 Hp and 1,300 lb⋅ft of torque.
Lamborghini Aventador LP1600-4 Mansory Carbonado GT
Mansory sure wasn’t kidding when it described its Carbonado GT program for the Lamborghini Aventador as an overdose in carbon fiber. Based on the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, Mansory’s fettling has extracted a staggering 1,600 Hp from the car’s mid-mounted 6.5-liter V-12, more than double the stock 691-horse output. A pair of enormous turbochargers have helped in this respect, as have thoroughly-reworked internals.
The Bugatti Chiron is a mid-engined two-seated sports car as the successor to the Bugatti Veyron. An 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine uses four turbochargers to make 1,500 Hp and 1180 lb⋅ft of torque. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic routes power to all four wheels.
