Top 10 Best Hypercars that the General Public Has Yet to Discover

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 30, 2015

Cars such as the McLaren F1 and the P1, the Bugatti Veyron, the Ferrari LaFerrari, the 918 Spyder from Porsche and the Lamborghini Reventon (to mention just a few) are all hypercars that you should have probably heard of at least a few times.

‘‘Hypercars’’ is a relatively new term adopted by the automotive industry. Cars in this category have a huge amount of horsepower, are extremely expensive and offer much more than the average ‘‘super car’’ in every category.

Cars within the ‘‘Hypercars’’ category are equipped with the very best and the latest in technology and engineering, blowing up all the charts with their incredible stats (and prices).

Sometimes these cars are mistaken as ‘‘super cars’’ for they are also extremely expensive and have incredible performance figures. The difference is that these are at much higher levels. You don’t know what we mean? Well, here is a list of our top 10 ‘‘Hypercars’’ to give you an idea.

1. Devel Sixteen (price has yet to be announced)

The top car on this list is unsurprisingly from the land of the highest luxuries: the UAE. This Dubai-based car company (Devel) amazed the entire world when it first unveiled their very first model, the Sixteen.

The number one Hyper Car in our list is equipped with a Quad-turbo 7.2liter V16 which the Arabic company assures can deliver up to 5000 bhp of power that enables the Sixteen to sprint from 0 to 62 in just 1.8 seconds and reach a mind-blowing top speed of 348 mph (560 km/h).

Its exteriors look like a Lamborghini Egoista has been merged with a space shuttle. Its interiors are just as luxurious and futuristic looking. No pricing is given but there’s no way that this doesn’t cost the highest.

2. Laraki Epitome - $2 million

From Casablanca, Morocco, the Laraki Epitome is the creation of Laraki Automobiles. It is owned by (Abdeslam Laraki) who was designing and creating luxurious yachts before he started making cars. Dr. Peter Tutzer, the director of the company, used to work for Bugatti.

The Laraki Epitome is built on the chassis of a Corvette C6 using carbonfiber for most of its bodywork. It is powered by the same V8 as the C6, but with twin turbochargers added as a plus.

It combines the qualities of bat mobile, an airplane and a spaceship and it was first unveiled at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance back in 2013. It is equipped with two fuel tanks: one that fills with regular fuel to produce up to 1200hp and one exclusively for high 110-octane race fuel aimed to produce 1750hp.

3. Zenvo ST1 - around $1 million

The ZENVO ST1 is comparable to the Marrusia B2 as the power from these two cars isn’t in the same category as the others in this countdown. However, these two definitely compensate for it with their mean looks and presence.

ST1 is powered by a 6.8 V8 supercharged and turbocharged engine that delivers 1104 hp at 1430Nm of torque. It is able to accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in about 3 seconds and it reaches a top speed of 375km/h.

It comes with three power modes, which are wet (650hp), sport (850hp) and race (1104hp). Customers can choose between a 6 speed manual and a 7 speed F1 paddle shift gearbox, and of course, its interiors are completely customizable.

4. W Motors Lykan Hypersport - $3,400,000

Lykan Hypersport is a limited production hypercar by the Lebanon-based company W Motors. This is the very first sports car to ever be produced by a Middle East company. It even has Hyper on its name.

This hypercar is powered by a twin turbo flat-six 3.7 liter engine that delivers up to 740bhp at 960Nm of torque. It is supposedly able to sprint from 0 to 62mph in 2.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 386km/h. W Motors launched the first pre-production Lykan Hypersport at the International Dubai Motor Show back in November 2013, and they are aiming to produce only seven units.

It is $1 million more expensive than the Veyron due to its luxury lights made up of titanium LED blades with 420 diamonds. The buyer is also given the opportunity to choose rubies, diamonds, yellow diamonds or sapphires to be incorporated into the vehicle.

5. Koenigsegg One:1 - $2,500,000

This car gets its name after its power-weight ratio of 1bhp/kg. This incredible ratio was thought to be impossible to reach before. To make it even more incredible, this is the very first homologated production car in the market capable of working with one megawatt of power.

Hence, it is the first series ‘‘Megacar’’ (another relatively new term in the auto industry) built in the world with 610 kg down force at 260 km/h thanks to its advanced active body aerodynamics, 20% lighter carbon chassis and body, fully active aero with independent right and left flaps and hydraulic dual plane rear wing; 3G and GPE controlled Predictive Active Chassis; 3G connectivity for telemetry, performance, lap times and an exclusive smartphone application.

This is probably the fastest homologated car, with a top speed of 440 km/h. Only six of these engineering masterpieces will be produced but you won’t get one because they have all been sold.

6. Hennessey Venom GT - WFE - $1,250,000

To celebrate Hennessey Performance’s recently recorded top speed run of 270.4 mph of the Venom GT, the American company has decided to build a limited run of World’s Faster Edition Venom GTs.

Made from the base of a Lotus Elise (but keeping very little from it), this vehicle offers a 7.0-liter V8 Twin turbo that produces 1244 bhp.

Weighing as little as 1244 kg, this car has a power-weight ratio of 1hp/kg. The WFE on its name stands for World’s Fastest Edition.

7. 9FF GT9-R - $1,570,000

Honoring their motto ‘‘We don’t just build any car… we build your car’’, the German manufacturer/tuner company takes Porsche cars as their base and upgrades them by changing their components with even better ones.

This process results in a brand new and totally different car from the one they started with. However, they kept the Porsche headlights.

Their top product is the GT9-R, which reaches a top speed (437km/h) almost as high as half of the speed of sound (0.5 mach). It is able to sprint from 0 to 300km/h in 13 seconds thanks to its 1400hp engine (3.6 boxer) transmitted to the rear wheels.

8. Spania GTA Spano - $725,000

After having been in the motorsport industry for two decades, Spania GTA took on the challenge of creating a hypercar that tips the scales and also bears an incredible style. This Spanish car made its first appearance at the Geneva Motorshow 2013.

Top quality materials such as carbonfiber on the bodywork, titanium alloy, carbonfiber and Kevlar at the chassis were used in the production of this car.

Its impressive engine with 7.990 cm3 V10 Twin Turbo Intercooler is capable of delivering 925hp of power at 6300Nm of torque, allowing the car to sprint from 0 to 60mph in just 2.9 seconds and to reach a top speed of 350 km/h. Spania GTA will only offer 99 of these cars to the market.

9. Marussia B2 - $130,000

This is only the second car offered to the market by Marussia, which is based in Moscow, Russia. This vehicle is the successor of the first one Marussia ever created (the B1). It has two different versions, one powered by a 2.8 V6 turbo engine, and the other one that is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.5 V6.

The power of the B2 ranges between 300 and 420 HP. The B2 is capable of sprinting from 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds and it eventually reaches a top speed of 190mph.

Don’t let its skeletal weight and high-performance make you think this is a road-racer stripped of comfort and convenience, for the B2 also offers its users a wide range of equipment including advanced infotainment system, air conditioning and electric windows.

Marussia sold all the 500 units before the production even started. This fact along with its beautiful looks, allows the B2 to secure this spot in our top 10.

10. Mazzanti Evantra V8 - $890,000

Founded in Italy (nearby Firenze) by Luca Mazzanti and Walter Faralli back in 2000, the Mazzanti automobili company offers us their deluxe exclusive tailor-made Hyper Car -- the Evantra. Just five units are produced every year, offering each customer a completely personalized and unique product.

In ancient Etruscan language, Evantra means ‘‘unique, eternal and exclusive’.” This is the name by which Etruscan people called their goddess of immortality.

This car is powered by an aluminum V8, 7.0 L engine able to deliver 701 HP, allowing the Evantra to reach 62mph in 3.2 seconds. If this does not impress you, then maybe its gorgeous suicide doors will.
