The automobile experts at Kelly Motorcars are going to cover some of the hottest hypercar models out there.
Automobiles have come a long way over the years. Your average modern family sedan could easily outrace antique racing cars from the 1930s. Some family cars could even beat many of the muscle cars from the 1960s. Yet as far as automobiles have come, they’ll continue to get faster and better. A spokesperson from Kelly Motorcars is going to cover the hypercars that are raising the bar and reshaping the industry.
“Automobile technology has advanced at breakneck speed,” Ryan Kelly from Kelly Motorcars says. “The new cars sold today are much better than cars from just 15 years ago. And modern hypercars are much faster than their predecessors.”
Take the Hennessey Venom F5, for example. Unveiled in late 2020, the Hennessey Venom F5 features a top speed in excess of 300 miles per hour. It also reaches 62 miles per hour in just 2.6 seconds. Meanwhile, the Bugatti Chiron, first introduced in 2016, features a 2.4 zero to sixty time.
For a long time, only expensive supercars, including high-end Ferrari and Lamborghini models, could reach 60 miles per hour in under 3 seconds. Now, you can pick up a more affordable Chevy Corvette that can hit sixty in 2.9 seconds.
“The Corvette is already shaking up the hypercar industry,” Ryan Kelly for Kelly Motorcars says. “The new mid-engine models offer speeds and handling comparable to a Lamborghini but can be had for about half the price. This is reshaping expectations within the industry and raising the bar for value and performance.”
Still, the biggest change in the hypercar industry may end up being electric cars. Several electric hypercars have been announced and not only do they offer a potentially better environmental footprint, but they are proving to be much faster than most hypercars with combustion engines.
Kelly Motorcars Talks About the Electric Car Revolution and Hypercars
Tesla’s first production car was a two-seater roadster that was based on the Lotus Elise. Launched back in 2008, the first-generation Tesla Roadster could hit 60 in less than 5 seconds, a respectable sixty time back then. Now, Tesla’s family sedans can hit 60 in under 2.5 seconds.
“Tesla is changing the game,” Kelly says. “Performance variants of the Model S are among the fastest cars in the world and can beat many European exotics at the drag strip. The next-generation Tesla Roadster is going to raise the bar even higher.”
The Tesla Roadster hasn’t gone into production yet, with manufacturing slated to start in 2022. Early performance numbers indicate that the Roadster will hit 60 in under 2 seconds. Tesla is even offering a Roadster equipped with a rocket (yes, a rocket) that can apparently hit 60 in 1.1 seconds.
Ryan Kelly from Kelly Motorcars notes that the Tesla Roadster is far from the only electric hypercar that will grace our roads in the near future. The Rimac Nevera, Ariel P40, Aspark Owl, and other electric hypercars will also offer exceptional performance.
Soon, combustion engines may be a bit of an anachronism. If you really want the fastest car, you may have to drop the throaty combustion engines for electric motors.
