For some, there is nothing more exciting that witnessing the speed of a wickedly fast car as it speeds down the road at speeds of 200 miles per hour. Though few have the chance to see fast cars use their potential in real life, fast car videos offer the chance to view them secondhand.
The fast cars videos feature often exceed 600 horsepower, some even going from zero to sixty in less than 3 seconds. Videos of fast cars often feature these vehicles reaching NASCAR level speeds up to 200 mph, but some are capable of speeds greater than 250 mph.
Until April of 2013, the world’s fastest car was the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 developed by Volkswagen and produced by Bugatti debuted in 2005. The super sport version of the vehicle is the fastest road legal car in the world, topping out at 267 mph and featuring an 8.0 liter, quad turbocharged, W16 cylinder engine, equivalent to two narrow angle V8 engines. In April of 2013, however, it was outstripped by a later model of the Bugatti called the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse World Record Car.
Fast car videos are usually shot on straight race tracks where they can reach top speeds without needing to brake for turns or other vehicles. Even NASCAR tracks are usually avoided because they curve. The Bugatti record was set on a 5.6 mile straight track.
Fast cars videos also tend to feature vehicles that are way out of the price range of most vehicle enthusiasts. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport runs a cool 2.4 million, and even the cheapest of the worlds top ten fastest cars costs $330,000. Fast car videos can provide an adrenaline rush to those who are interested in automotives, providing a glimpse at vehicles most of us will never get to see in real life, much less drive.
