Quite a few cars can go out of three seconds when accelerating to 100 km/h. But the list will narrow down if you want to pull off this trick without a roof.
The debut of the Ferrari SF90 Spider super-hybrid in 2020 has made a lot of noise in the supercar and hypercar universe. After looking at the characteristics table, many were quick to call the beauty from Maranello the fastest production roadster in the world.
If you rent sport car Dubai and take, for example, a Ferrari 488 Spyder (2019), you will have 670 hp and a 3.9L/V8 Turbo engine that can accelerate to 100 km/h in 3 seconds with a top speed of 330 km/h. Impressive? By the way, the service of renting luxury cars in the emirates is even more impressive. You can rent the fastest iron horse for quite adequate money. And even from a rented car, you will get an unforgettable driving experience.
Then what do you say about the 4L/V8 engine, 780 hp, and 3 electric motors allowing 100 km/h for 2.5 seconds? Are really phenomenal indicators. That’s faster than the crazy Porsche 918 Spyder and Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. However, in terms of maximum speed, there are nuances.
To figure it out we chose the seven most productive serial roadsters.
Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster
We start with the most “vegetable” model of the selection. And this title is awarded today to the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ Roadster with its 770-horsepower aspirated V12 6.5 and the rather obstinate one-disk Graziano robot.
It is this outdated bunch that is responsible for the painfully long climb of 200 km/h (the closest pursuer copes almost a second faster). The rest of the dynamic indicators of the “Italian”, which can still be bought new, are at the level.
McLaren 720S Spider
The McLaren 720S Spider, which debuted a few months earlier, shoots up to 100 km/h in the same 2.9 seconds – for nothing, which is fifty forces weaker (there are “only” 720 of them here) and a third of the cylinders (4.0 V8) are missing. Thanks to the dual boost and low curb weight of 1332 kg.
Like the Lamborghini, the Woking car can be purchased new, and the unlimited edition allows you to wait until the next paycheck without fear of missing your chance.
Koenigsegg Agera RS
Perhaps we undeservedly placed the Koenigsegg Agera RS hypercar only on the third line from the end of the chart: the Swedish monster is the most powerful (1176 hp) and fastest (458 km/h) hero of the selection. That’s just the time to set the first two hundred somehow does not resonate too much with power.
However, if desired, the output of a five-liter V8 turbo engine can be quite legally (that is, with the unconditional consent of the company) increased to 1360 hp by a software method. One “but”: in this case, instead of gasoline, you will have to fill in the E85 alcohol mixture in the tanks.
Porsche 918 Spyder
The magnificent Agera RS eloquently proves that you won’t go far on “horses” alone – even if you have a whole herd of them. And how in such a situation to remove precious fractions of a second? A lethal injection of electricity, of course!
This is exactly the religion that the guys from Porsche professed, seasoning the 608-horsepower “eight” of the 918th “Spider” with electric motors. There are two of them, one on each axis. The total output of the power plant reaches an impressive 887 forces. And the excellent weight distribution plays along with the already cool chassis.
Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Speed
It’s hard to imagine a person choosing between a Porsche 918 Spyder and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. Although on paper these cars are almost identical, in fact, they are completely different: the “German” has been holding a cozy place in the top 10 fastest “production” cars of the Nordschleife since 2013. “Frenchman” stubbornly sharpened to the maximum speed.
At the time of its debut in 2012, the Grand Sport Vitesse, whose eight-liter W16 with four superchargers produces 1,200 horsepower and 1,500 Newtons, allowing you to reach 408 km/h, was unconditionally the fastest production roadster on the planet.
Hennessey Venom GT Spyder
This “beast” surpasses the French car in almost all driving disciplines: it quickly gains a hundred, does not lag behind in a throw up to two hundred, and effortlessly reaches 427 km/h. The only question is, is it serial?
Its history dates back to 2010 when the Americans decided to build a fierce hypercar with a seven-liter V8 with 1014 forces and two turbochargers. In later versions, the engine output was brought to an unrealistic 1471 hp.
But the trouble is with the circulation: instead of the planned 29 copies, only 12 cars were produced. And only half of them – with a retractable roof.
Ferrari SF90 Spider
Is it possible, after all of the above, to call the Ferrari SF90 Spider the fastest roadster on the planet? Decide for yourself. In any case, it will not yield to anyone in acceleration to 100 km/h and will reach 200 km/h faster than others. It is relatively affordable and it will be possible to buy it new for a very long time.
And as for the maximum speed… How often in your life have you accelerated faster than 300 km/h?
