Performance criteria

Supercars the acceleration and top speed above sportscars.Usually the speed standard of a supercar changes by time.Modern must travel 0-60 mph in 4 seconds in order to be classified as

Power-to-weight ratio

Most have high engine and low vehicle weight, for the sake of acceleration (see Newton’s Law) and good handling For example, the 2004 Porsche GT carries just five per horsepower (3 kg/kW) compare to the Porsche Boxster which nearly 12 lb/hp (7.1 The McLaren F1. introduced in 1991 and considered as one of the fastest supercars of the century, produced 627.1 hp kW) against a weight of 2513 (1140 kg), translating to 4 Certain vehicles have a power-to-weight ratio despite a heavy weight, due to a powerful output. For example, the Bugatti carries 4.3 lb/hp despite 4299 pounds (1950 including fuel[1]. due to its 1001 hp kW) engine. The Rimac Concept car produces 1088 combined hp electric motor at each carrying 1650 kg (3.34 The Koenigsegg CCR and Koenigsegg CCX have the power-to-weight ratio among supercars, with 806 hp (601 kW) (on grade 91 octane gasoline) and a of just 2601 pounds kg) the Koenigsegg carries only 3.2 According to the Shelby Super website, the Ultimate Aero TT the new production record, carrying a 2.33 lbs/hp.


Supercars, by the usual have extremely quick compared to most vehicles, ordinary sports cars. current expectations are as follows:

0 to 60 mph (96.56 km/h): Under 4 for virtually all supercars today. The Veyron Super Sport has a 0 to 60 of 2.5 seconds, the Hennessey Venom GT. in 2011, has a 0-60 time of 2.5 matching the Bugatti Veyron Sport, the McLaren F1 has a 0-60 of 3.2 and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 has a 0 to 60 of 3.3 seconds.

0 to 100 mph (160.9 km/h): 10 seconds is generally recognized as the with undisputed supercars significantly faster. The Ferrari introduced in 2002, has a 0 to 100 mph time of 6.5 seconds. A McLaren F1 could the same in 6.3 seconds.

0 to 200 mph (322 Under 30 seconds. McLaren F1 28 Saleen S7 23 seconds, Bugatti Super Sport 22 seconds, Venom GT 15.3 seconds.

Standing Quarter-Mile (402.3 Under 13 seconds is arguably a as is a trap or terminal speed of at 110 mph (177 km/h).

The Ferrari completes the quarter mile a stop in about 11.1 at 133 mph (214 km/h).

The Koenigsegg introduced in 2004, is officially to run the quarter mile in 9 seconds, end 235 km/h (146 mph) [2]

Mile. Trap (terminal) of at least 180 mph. eg. Hennessey GT. Saleen S7. Bugatti Veyron Sport, Pagani Zonda. CCR. McLaren F1. Ferrari FXX


Undisputed supercars can generally 200 mph, but must exceed The fastest models today speeds exceeding 250 mph (400

On March 31, 1998, the McLaren F1 XP5 set the speed record at 386.3 (240.1 mph) at 7800 The production models are normally to 7500 rpm, giving a top around 231 mph. The car was driven by Wallace on the 9 km straight at Volkswagen Ehra test track in Germany.

On February 28, 2005, the CCR with 601 kW (806 hp) achieved a top of 387.87 km/h (241.01 on default settings. The car was driven on Nardo Prototipo proving a circular track with a of 12.5 km. This exceeded the record.[3]

In October, 2005, Car and magazine’s editor Csaba test drove the final version of the Veyron for the November issue. This test, at Ehra-Lessien test track, a top speed of 407 km/h (253 The Veyron can also do 0-300 (186 mph) in just 19 seconds[4] .

In 2011, Hennessey tested the Venom GT and achieved a world top speed of 275 miles per hour, the Bugatti Veyron Super top speed of 268 miles per hour. only the engine from a ZR1 no less.

Stopping ability

An common measure of overall — demanding both good and good brakes is the 0-100-0 mph in which the vehicle is accelerated a standing start to 100 mph and then back to a dead stop. modern supercars can do this feat in under 10 seconds.

In contrast to a sports car which has a more ‘sporty’ or involving than a normal sportscar, a is usually built for maximum and road gripping ability in to achieve superior racing Lateral g-forces during the turns can generally exceed 1 g .

A popular benchmark is a lap time the Nürburgring of under 8 minutes.
