Fastest street legal cars 2022 are all about speed. These vehicles are able to accelerate and reach top speeds that no other production cars can match.
The Koenigsegg Jesko ‘Absolut’ makes the list with a projected top speed of 330 mph. This is an extremely quick car that will put a smile on your face.
The French luxury automaker Bugatti has a new track-only concept, the Bolide. It’s designed to take the company back to its racing roots and compete in the burgeoning world of can’t-drive-on-the-road, can’t-race-in-a-championship hypercar track toys like Aston Martin’s Valkyrie, McLaren’s Senna GTR, and Mercedes’ Project One. And it does so in style.
To help achieve its insane top speed of 310 miles per hour, the Bolide is packed with the latest in aerodynamic technology. Its front splitter and rear diffuser have been meticulously shaped to ensure perfect airflow, reducing drag. It also has a unique “morphable skin” that’s designed to change shape depending on the car’s velocity. This reduces drag even more as it accelerates, while at the same time increasing downforce at lower speeds.
Inside, the Bolide is race-ready with a six-point seat belt system, HANS device, an automatic fire extinguishing system, and more. It’s also built for comfort with a reclining seats and climate control. But the true highlight is the 8.0-liter W-16 engine that powers it. It produces a staggering 1,824 horsepower and 1,364 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to get you up to 310 miles per hour in just under three seconds, according to Bugatti. And at those speeds, the Bolide can sustain 2.5 G of lateral acceleration, thanks to its wide track, low center of gravity, and groundbreaking aerodynamics.
The Koenigsegg Jesko is a track-focused beast that does everything a hypercar should do. It has a massive engine for chasing lap times and a big, rear-mounted active wing for exceptional downforce. The wing is adjustable for optimal performance, and it can produce up to 3086 pounds of downforce at top speeds.
The car’s body is made from carbon fiber and reinforced with the strongest fiber in the world, Dyneema. It also has a front lifting system that raises the ride height by two inches when you need to pass through a tunnel or bridge.
Another great feature of the Jesko is its rear-wheel steering system. It enables the car to steer the rear wheels in the same direction as the front ones at high speeds, which helps to increase cornering agility and stability. It’s a fun way to make the car more agile, and it’s easy to use.
Inside the cabin, you’ll find a basic infotainment system and Koenigsegg’s SmartCluster, which uses a TFT touchscreen that moves with the wheel to keep speed, revs, and other vital information in the driver’s eyeline. Koenigsegg also added the Autoskin upgrade that first appeared in the Regera, which allows the Jesko to automatically open and close its dihedral synchro-helix doors on command. The system also has sensors that prevent the doors from hitting other objects when opening.
The Devel Sixteen is one of the world’s fastest cars. It is capable of reaching a top speed of 348 mph. It has a 5007-horsepower engine and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in just 1.8 seconds. Despite its impressive stats, it is still not road legal.
The project has been plagued by a series of setbacks. In 2021, it lost a key collaborator in Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT), which was tasked with modifying the V16 engine for street use. MAT also had to develop new components for the vehicle, including a new aerodynamics suite designed by Pininfarina.
Despite these difficulties, Devel Motors has continued to make progress on the Devil Sixteen. A video of a dyno test appeared in 2015, and the company said that the engine produced 4,515 horsepower on the dynamometer. However, the company isn’t planning to build a production model with this level of power for now.
Although the Devil Sixteen looks like a fantasy gone wild, it’s backed by some of the most wealthy people in the world. Its creators include Rashid Al Attar, a member of the Al Attar family from the United Arab Emirates. The car will likely be sold in Dubai, where there are a lot of wealthy people who love exotic cars. The car will be available in several different engine variants, but the top-spec version will cost more than $2 million.
The Venom F5 is one of the fastest cars ever made. Its top speed is over 500 km/h, surpassing the SSC Tuatara and Koenigsegg Jesko. The Venom is also more fun to drive than either of those cars. It is a great car for racing, as it can get to 186 mph in just 8.4 seconds.
It is powered by a bespoke 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, nicknamed “Fury,” rated at 1,817 hp. This power is sent to the rear wheels through a CIMA automated transmission. In addition, the Venom’s carbon-ceramic brakes are fitted with muti-piston calipers for fade-free stopping power.
Hennessey is aiming for the Venom to become the world’s fastest production car. This will be proven by a transparent and independently verified top speed run. The company has already hired world-renowned experts from Racelogic and VBOX to install, test, and calibrate the speed testing equipment in the Venom F5. The car will be driven by Hennessey CEO and founder John Hennessey himself.
Mat recently had the opportunity to take the Venom F5 for a spin. He says that it feels like driving American muscle in a sleeker form. Hennessey’s focus on the driver and the experience of the car has paid off. Its brutal straight-line performance may be its strongest strength, but Mat says that it’s also a lot of fun to drive on the British B roads.
