SCG003S Courtesy Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus New York based company, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, which has previously been known for building competitive race cars, is releasing their first road-legal car, the SCG003S, next month at the Geneva Motor Show. The car is set to be the fastest sports car in the world, with an expected speed of over 350 kph (roughly 218 mph), and will go 0-100 in less than three seconds. Under the hood, there’s a 4.4-liter twin turbo engine with over 800 horsepower and 850 nm of torque. This “supercar” is derived directly from one of SCG’s endurance race cars, the SCG003C, which won its class at the famed Nürburgring 24 Hours. The SCG003S is expected to be nearly 30 seconds faster than the previous production car to lap the track when it competes at Nordschleife. The model is hand-built by Manifattura Automobili Torino (MAT) in Italy, and will have customizable options such as right-hand drive, personalized interior design and individualized mechanical options to provide a unique experience to every single driver. At the Geneva Motor Show, the company will also display a one-of-a-kind SCG003CS, a road-legal race car built for Scuderia’s owner, Jim Glickenhaus, that will show off all of the possibilities for customization with Scuderia. SCG003S back Courtesy Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus With safety features like a roll hoop, roll cage, crash structures, on-board fire system and race bred suspension and construction, Scuderia is confident in its safety for both the driver and passenger. Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus hasn’t yet released a price for the car, but it’s expected to cost within the same amount as other cars of this caliber. Basically, by the looks of it, if you’re interested in a SCG003S, be prepared to shell out some serious dough.

10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 10 – Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 Page 1 of 12 10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 10 – Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 It’s no surprise that Lamborghini has placed two vehicles on our list of the 10 fastest accelerating cars, as the Italian automaker has always been about brute force and startling speed. The Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 (yes, it’s also all-wheel drive like the Murcielago) features 691 horsepower and 509 lb-ft of torque thanks to a 6.5-liter, twelve-cylinder engine mounted amidships. 60-mph arrives in 2.9 seconds when the full bore of the Aventador’s might is brought to bear on the tarmac below its super-wide tires, and the car’s high performance attitude matches its flamboyant road presence.

10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 03 – SSC Ultimate Aero TT Page 1 of 12 10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 03 – SSC Ultimate Aero TT SSC North America has been around for over a decade, but not everyone is familiar with the SSC Ultimate Aero TT – a vehicle that once held the title of ‘fastest production car in the world.’ The SSC Ultimate Aero TT may have now ceded that claim to the Bugatti Veyron, but it’s still exceptionally quick off of the line, with a 0-60-mph time of 2.8 seconds. How does it do it? The Ultimate Aero TT is outfitted with a 6.3-liter V-8 that makes use of twin turbochargers to churn out 1,28 horsepower and 1,112 lb-ft of torque, which is in turn fed to the rear wheels by a six-speed manual transmission that doesn’t benefit from any kind of traction control other than the driver’s right foot and quick reflexes.

Page 1 of 12 The fastest accelerating cars from 0-60 miles per hour represent some of the most expensive – and exotic – vehicles in the world. Of course, there are a few more common models mixed in amongst the unobtainable super sports cars that make up this universe of speed, which is a testament to the level of technology that has trickled down into the hands of affluent, but far from mega-rich car buyers over the course of the past decade. We’ve put together a list of 10 of the fastest accelerating cars from 0-60 currently on the market. While not exhaustive, and certainly not in any order, it’s hard to argue with the inclusion of any of the vehicles below in a speed freak’s dream garage.

The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is the fastest production car ever, capable of a verified 267.857 mph. After the original Veyron lost the title of world’s fastest production car to SSC, Bugatti made the Veyron even faster. How’s 16 cylinders, 4 turbochargers, and 1,200 horsepower sound? The price? $2.4 million.

The CCR is an earlier generation of Koenigsegg’s cars, but it still manages to be one of the fastest. Not to mention, the Koenigsegg was the first ever production vehicle to beat McLaren’s 8-year streak as the fastest production car on the market. The car comes equipped with a large and powerful 4.7-liter V8 Engine that is capable of generating 806 hp and 920 lb-ft torque. According to manufacturer estimates, the vehicle can zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and can complete a standing quarter mile of 9.7 seconds at 146 mph.

Thankfully, all-wheel drive is on hand to help corral the car’s ferocious power production, and the SuperVeloce’s lighter weight helps the vehicle accomplish the sprint to 60-mph faster than any other Murcielago available (2.8 seconds). That’s on top of the car’s terminal velocity of 212 miles per hour, making this one of the fiercest machines to have ever been exported from Italy.

10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 05 – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Vitesse Page 1 of 12 10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 05 – Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Vitesse The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Vitesse puts an exclamation mark on what was already the most dominant production car on the planet. Just when you thought it wasn’t possible to make the Veyron’s land missile performance any more impressive, Bugatti finds a way with the Super Sport Vitesse edition. The Vitesse generates 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque from its unique 16-cylinder engine (which comes with four – that’s right – four turbochargers), and its all-wheel drive system gives the car enough purchase on the pavement to reach 60-mpg in only 2.4 seconds. Toss in a top speed of close to 270 miles per hour, and you’ve got a recipe for automotive madness.

10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 08 – McLaren MP4-12C Page 1 of 12 10 Fastest Accelerating Cars 0-60 – 08 – McLaren MP4-12C Intended as a successor to the record-setting McLaren F1, the McLaren MP4-12C is a remarkable automotive achievement. A seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission combines with a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine to ensure that the vehicle’s 616 horsepower and 443 lb-ft of torque make it to the car’s rear wheels with as little drama as possible. The light-by-design McLaren rushes to the 60-mph mark in 3.1 seconds, but the car is better appreciated for its casual dispatch of even the toughest race tracks, as well as exterior styling that is a cut above many supercars.

Comparing claimed speeds of the fastest production cars in the world, especially in historical cases, is difficult as there is no standardized method for determining the top speed and no central authority to verify any such claims. Examples of the difficulties faced were shown up in the dispute between Bugatti and Hennessey over which car was the world’s fastest.
