The 7 fastest cars in the world in 2022
The exhilarating rumble of a powerful engine. As a Ferrari zips around a bend, it creates a spectacular vacuum. The utmost bravery required to pilot the world’s fastest cars in 2022.
It’s a sport of endurance. It’s a thrilling experience for the audience. The quickest cars of the year have something for everyone. As we watch fast-beyond-words cars compete for the most coveted title: the fastest car in the world, the fact that they’re only growing quicker fascinates everyone of us.
The cars of this year are lighter, sleeker, and more powerful than previous models. The latest hypercars and supercars are works of art in motion, with top speeds well beyond the former ‘golden barrier’ of 480km/h (300mph). This year, we’ve whittled down our definitive list to introduce you to the seven quickest vehicles of 2022, all of which are from historic automakers.
If you blink, you’ll miss them.
|Rank||Model||Top speed (mph)|
|7.||Hennessey Venom GT||270|
|6.||Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+||304|
|5.||Hennessey Venom F5||310|
|3.||Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut||330|
7. Hennessey Venom GT: 270 mph (434 km/h)
On Valentine’s Day in 2014, John Hennessey of Hennessey Performance called an end to his feud with Bugatti (at least for the time being). After years of competition, the American carmaker’s Venom GT was crowned World Record Holder for Fastest Car on NASA’s Kennedy Space Center’s runway.
The automobile took two years to design and engineer. Only 29 were manufactured, and the manufacturer is only selling them for over 1.2 million each.
With sinuous curves and a streamlined body, the supercar is stunning. The Venom GT nearly looks feline, with its ultra-light carbon-fibre chassis, as if it’s a black panther poised to spring forward at any moment.
It does, in fact, leap: The Venom GT reached a then-unprecedented top speed of 270 mph (434 km/h). It accelerated from zero to one hundred kilometres per hour (zero to sixty miles per hour) in 3.05 seconds during its World Record testing.
6. Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+: 304 mph (483 km/h)
Naturally, Bugatti has a long history in the world of luxury hypercars. The Chiron’s heavily improved quad-turbocharged W16 engine increased the speed of this legendary automobile and added some brawn to the beauty, putting Bugatti in second place in our rating of the fastest cars for 2021.
While it may not be the ultimate fastest car in the planet (we’ll get to that coveted title in a minute! ), Bugatti’s Chiron Super Sport 300+ has a claim to fame that will live on in history books and amazed discussions for years to come: It was the first car to reach the then-unthinkable speed of 300 mph (483 km/h).
It maintains a perfect combination of form and function, as well as aerodynamics and aesthetics. This Bugatti has speed and style in spades, accelerating from 0-100 kilometres per hour (0-60 mph) in 2.4 seconds.
5. Hennessey Venom F5: 310 mph (484 km/h)
Another vehicle in John Hennessey’s Venom brand, the F5, comes next in the lineup of Hennessey’s record-breaking vehicles. The name refers to the fastest sort of tornado, a natural force that the Hennessey mimics with its massive power and extraordinary speeds.
The Venom F5 has an American-made twin-turbocharged engine under the hood; the result? The engine has over 2,000 horsepower. The Venom F5 now has everything it needs to attain a top speed of 484 kilometres per hour (301 mph). Its acceleration is also outstanding, with a time of less than two seconds from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour or 0 to 60 miles per hour.
The F5 was designed to help Hennessey beat a world record company had previously set with the GT in terms of style, exclusivity, price, and speed. There were just 24 manufactured. 1.6 million dollars was the asking price. The carbon-fibre shell, which has a bright yellow colour? Immediately recognisable.
4. Bugatti Bolide: 310+ mph (484+ km/h)
Bugatti went back to the drawing board after the triumph of the Chiron Super Sport. The forward-thinking, historic automaker needed to outdo itself, but how could it when the Super Sport 300+ was already, ostensibly, perfection on wheels?
The Bugatti Bolide is a lightweight hypercar that exemplifies Bugatti’s full range of beauty, power, and invention. The Bolide will show the world what the W-16 motor is capable of, using the same unique engine from the renowned Chiron line, but with extra turbos to amp up the effect. It’s also light, futuristic (powder blue paint is sparingly applied to the exposed carbon-fibre frame), and small: the Bolide is only 39.2 inches tall. It has a top speed of 310 mph (498 km/h) and can accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 2.17 seconds.
3. Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut: 330 mph (531 km/h)
So far, it appears that the competition to select the fastest car of 2021 has been dominated by two automakers: Bugatti and Hennessey. That’s logical. Both are perfectly pedigreed houses that produce magnificent automobiles that are simply brimming with sheer power.
The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut is a hypercar that ups the ante by an incredible twenty miles per hour. For a long time, if anyone wondered what the world’s fastest car was, it was unquestionably this car.
This car was introduced by Swedish automaker Koenigsegg in order to set a new world record. As a result, they upgraded the engine from their other popular supercar, the Agera RS, invested in more precise handling, and made the car lighter and more aerodynamic for maximum performance.
This car, though, isn’t just about speed. There’s also enjoyment built in, with climate control, entertainment, and head/leg room that are frequently overlooked when it comes to the world’s fastest cars.
The Jesko Absolut has a top speed of 330 mph (531 km/h); the manufacturer hasn’t revealed acceleration figures, but with that kind of top speed, it’ll be amazing.
2. SSC Tuatara: 331 mph (533 km/h)
SSC, based in North America, has created a stunning supercar that is jam-packed with the most cutting-edge automotive technology. Shelby SuperCars revealed in October 2020 that their fastest supercar had hit an eye-watering speed of 331mph – or over 530km/h – on a seven-mile stretch of road in Nevada.
Unfortunately for those who envision themselves zipping around their favourite cities at this breakneck speed, this car isn’t exactly road-legal: it steers with the help of a camera system rather than mirrors.
With a flat-plane-crank 5.9-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine and a $1.9M price tag, the SSC Tuatara may not have needed a speed record to stand out. Of course, it’s not going to hurt.
The SSC Tuatara accelerates from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour (0 to 60 miles per hour) in 2.5 seconds.
1. Devel Sixteen: 347 mph (550km/h)*
We’ve arrived at the fastest car of 2022, a car with nearly unheard-of amounts of power and speed from the Devel Sixteen — a car that aims to break all present records. The Devel Sixteen faces the next speed standard: 350 miles per hour, with a reported top speed of 347mph (or 550+km/h).
The Devel Sixteen has data that have had the automobile industry talking, perplexed, while we wait for manufacturing, since it first debuted years ago: It features a whopping 5,007 horsepower, an 81mm Quad Turbo 12.3L V16 engine, and a general ‘inquire for pricing’, interesting aura surrounding it at all times. This is a car to keep an eye on in 2021, as what we do know about it indicates that if its figures are confirmed, it will be the car to beat.
*The Devel Sixteen remains in development at the time of publishing this ranking. The brand’s claimed top speed hasn’t been confirmed yet. We will update this article as soon as more information is available.
