Want to have a nosey around some of the most exclusive cars in the world?
We’ve created a paddock just for you, displaying just that. From McLaren’s P1 and F1 right to the bonkers Bugatti Veyron, we’re giving show goers the opportunity of a lifetime to get up close and personal with poster cars! But not just of this generation, but also of yesteryear with the likes of the Ferrari Enzo, Maserati MC12 and Porsche 959.
The McLaren F1 was made famous for being the fastest production car ever built. Entering production in 1992, the McLaren F1 set a top speed record the following year of 231mph at Nardo. It then went on to beat its own record in 1998 with a top speed of 240.1mph! This record held until 2005 when the mighty Bugatti Veyron entered the scene. The F1 held the record for the top speed for so long thanks, in part, to its glorious BMW-derived V12 engine. Famously utilising gold foil in order to deflect the colossal heat generated from the engine, it produces 627bhp and 480lb ft of torque.
The Bugatti Veyron entered the top speed battle in 2005 with a bang, eclipsing the previous record-setter with a remarkable 253mph sprint. This was then beaten again in 2013 through a number of developments, which saw the Veyron Super Sport take the record with an average run of 258mph, making it officially the fastest production car in the world as recognised by Guinness World Records. While other cars have travelled faster, there is dispute over whether they can be categorised as production cars, namely the Hennessey Venom GT, which hasn’t sold the numbers needed to meet the requirements. The Veyron utilises a colossal 8-litre W16 engine with quad-turbos to produce 1000bhp in standard form and 1200bhp in Super Sport and Grand Vitesse form. Here is a fun fact, while the average road car only has one radiator to keep the engine cool, the Veyron has 10!
As the title for the world’s fastest car is firmly in the hands of the Bugatti Veyron, the likes of Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren all set about utilising a new type of technology in order to improve performance. While the world saw Toyota introduce the first hybrid drivetrain, the sports car and supercar giants mentioned above set about taking this system for the benefit of petrol heads around the world.
We can’t wait to share with you the cars we have lined up for The Fast Car Festival, but for now we don’t want to give too much away.
Expect announcements leading up to the show of what we have confirmed. To name just a couple already, get your cameras ready for the mighty McLaren P1 and Porsche 918!
