2 Cars in the 600 Horsepower Club

For racing enthusiasts one of the most important specs for a car is the amount of horsepower it is able to produce.  While most production cars have been rising in the horsepower category for the last couple of decades today’s exotic supercars have completely blown away anything the traditional vehicles offer.  Here are two cars that offer 600 horsepower or more.

Dodge Viper SRT-10
The Dodge Viper SRT-10 is relatively cheap for a supercar boasting 600 horsepower.  At $85,000, it is within many enthusiasts reach.  It features an 8.4 liter cam in block, V10 that has two valves per cylinder and a relatively traditional engine (whopping 512 cubic inches) that uses brute force to create spot on 600 horses.

The Bugatti Veyron
If you are looking for something more exotic and you are incredibly rich, you might want to get on the list for the Bugatti Veyron.  The Veyron is pretty much the top of the food chain with a price tag of 1.5 million for starters.  The Bugatti Veyron has incredible specs that will just about blow any enthusiast away.  To start out, the 16 cylinder which is actually a twin off set of V-8 engines that utilizes all 16 cylinders creates an incredible 1001 horses.  These two huge engines actually share a common crankshaft and include four turbochargers.

Some other stunning facts about the Bugatti Veyron is that it can easily reach 0 to 60 in less than 3 seconds- 2.5 seconds to be exact (in case you had time to count).  As for top speed- how is 250 mph.  However, in order to reach this insane top speed you need the special “top speed key”.  As for gas mileage, don’t expect this beast to be fuel efficient.  In fact at the top speed of 250 mph, you can probably eek out about 2.46 mpg- we are approaching military tank fuel efficiency.

    Here’s my question… I need to know the absolute fastest most street lethal weapon on 4 wheels, a modern-ish (90’s & up) that can be bought and built for roughly 60-70K. Or less. Must be capable of 12’s on streets if the need arises. I’m a SHO guy, I love 6’s overall, but anything with a high rev range that will get me to where I’m going in the loudest, angriest way possible. No holds barred. I love engine transplants. THE MORE SUGGESTIONS THE BETTER!!!! Thanks
