While the cars we drive to work and to the shops are really fine examples of the automotive industry, for the pinnacle of technical excellence you must turn to races and sports cars in their many forms. Check out five examples of the very best.
Red Bull RB7 racing car. During the Formula 1 season 2011, it was the dominant car, the absolute best racing car on the circuit, that won both the individual driver's title and also the designer's championship.
The RB7's performance was the result of constant development and innovation, such as the introduction of its exhaust blower diffuser, the addition of floor holes and special electronic engine maps that squeezed every ounce of power from the car's 2.4 liter engine. Often, these technical improvements have to be refined in one to two week window between breeds.
Bugatti Veyron Supersport. In just a few short years, with its stunning style and stunning performance, this magnificent road car has become a legend. For those who are brave and have room to do so, Veyron can release a top speed of not less than 267 mph and reach the goal of 60 miles per hour in just 2.4 seconds from a standing start. Recognized as the fastest route ever made to buy one of these phenomenal vehicles, you would have to share £ 1.6 million!
The McClaren F1 road car is widely regarded as the ultimate supercar, which darkens them as legendary names like Ferrari and Lamborghini. It first went into production twenty years ago and some say it is still the most beautiful car ever built. With a top speed of just 241 mph, it can't match Veyron's pace, but with a price tag as high as $ 2.5 million, in terms of cost, it leaves Veyron standing.
The Audi R18 e-tron Quattro is the first of a new hybrid that hybridizes in the world of motor racing, winning the world's best-known endurance car race - Le Mans 24 Hour. To achieve success in a race that can take over 3000 miles, Audi engineers and drivers must balance the pursuit of speed with careful handling of fuel, tires, engine, transmission and brakes.
The Citroen DS3 WRC can be the closest to this list for the vehicle you and I drive, but in the hands of his driver, eight hours of world champion, Sébastien Loeb, is anything but. Unlike the other cars, which are designed to run on road or flat circuits, the DS3 must combine speed, endurance and robustness to cope with the carelessness it comes from melting along narrow, unbuilt forest tracks thrown around the hairline bends and Impact of landing after taking over bridges!
And even though these high-performance cars may seem far away from the family salon, the technical effort that goes into them ripples the cars we drive, safer, better, and more efficiently.
