Sonic Speed: 9 Supercars That Break 250 Mph


When you want to go fast and can afford it, there are a number of cars now available that can enable you to break the incredible speed of 250 miles per hour.

These supercars are amazingly fast, sleek and beautiful, letting you travel in style, too.

All of them are limited versions, and some of them are not being made now – making them the ideal car to have – or at least ride in.

1. The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport

This speedster, which is considered to be the world’s fastest, was built in 2011 has been equipped with a 1,200 horsepower engine to give you an incredibly fast and powerful ride.

It has a top speed of 257 miles per hour which is powered by its W16 engine and a 7-gear DSG transmission.

From a standing still position, it can get up and move to 60 miles per hour in just 2.5 seconds, and up to 100 miles per hour in 6.7 seconds.

There is approximately the same speed in the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport as there is in a Formula F1 car.

While driving on city streets, this car gets a mere 6 miles per gallon, but on theopen road where it can stretch its legs a little, it gets 15 miles per gallon. The interior is a mix of suede and leather, and it all is placed on a chassis that rolls on $35,000 Michelin tires.

It is definitely not for the faint of wallet. The cost for one of these hot cars is $2.4 million. There were only 46 of these cars made for the global market with only six of those being for anyone in the United States.
