Bugatti Veyron 16.4 joined the league of supercars with a series of superlative modifiers such as the ´fastest, most powerful and most expensive´ street-legal production cars in the world. The ever powerful Veyron engine is capable of yielding 1020 to 1040 metric HP, and so the Veyron 16.4 supercar is now better known as the ´1001 horsepower´ car.
The famous sports car manufacturer, Bugatti Automobiles SAS, a subsidiary of Volkswagen AG, owns the prestigious title for manufacturing the super performer of the world. The name ´Veyron´ is attributed to the French racing driver Pierre Veyron who won the title ´24 hours of Le Mans´ in 1939 for Bugatti. Bugatti, with its long years of experience in making the traditional racing cars since the early ´90s, tries the track in the modern era with a well-advanced version of their technology applied in the Veyron 16.4.
Bugatti Veyron is an exclusive sports car for the 21st century. It exemplifies the perfect blending of design with technological concept.
Offering a high performance with serious measures to ensure safety was the major concern at Bugatti while yielding a maximum performance speed of 252.3 mph (406 km/h) to this leader of the modern era racing cars. Thanks to the single-piece carbon-fiber monocoque technology that absolutely suited the Bugatti Veyron supercar and scored the maximum points at various crash tests. Adding to this perfect body structure are other safety measures such as the airbags and the PAX system applied on the wheels and tires.
Another innovative safety measure applied is the rear spoiler of this sports car that performs double action – it provides the necessary downforce at high-speed driving, and it acts as a ´parachute brake´ during sudden braking. It helps to add additional air resistance to the brakes and thus reduces the braking distance of this supercar to great extent.The W16 alloy engine is an important feature of the Veyron 16.4. The 16 cylinders are arranged in 4 banks of 4 cylinders. The engine uses four turbochargers that are capable of a displacement of 8.0L with an 86X86 mm bore and stroke. The dual-cultch DSG computer controlled manual transmission system sets the Veyron sports car to have full automatic transmission. The system is provided with seven gear ratios through the shifter paddles situated behind the steering wheel, and they offer 8ms shift time.The wheels and tires are also modified to facilitate an improved performance of the new supercar. The all-wheel-drive helps to transfer the power efficiently to the road while speed driving. The Michelin run-flat tires used in the Veyron meet all the safety standards and suit the adventurous driving situations and racing conditions.The brake system consists of a cross-drilled and turbine-vented carbon rotors. Each caliper is provided with eight titanium pistons. The braking system of Veyron supercar is so effective that it can produce a deceleration of 1.3g on road tires.The interior of the Veyron 16.4 sports car features an exceptional design that exhibits the creativity and the aesthetics of the designer. The superb quality leather, the metallic trim, and the ergonomically set instrument panel add to the touching cockpit experience.

F430's 90-degree engine design derived directly from designs used in the Ferrari's Formula 1 engines. In fact, car name F430 came from its 4308 cc mid-engine which can produce 490 hp (an astonishing 114 hp per liter).
F430 supercar comes in two versions: a Coupe and an open top Spider, the latter being approx. £20,000 more expensive.Pagani Zonda F

Top Speed: 214 mph / 345 kph
0-60 mph: 3.6 seconds
Engine: AMG 4 valve V-12
One of the fastest supercars that ever was, Pagani Zonda F is a winner from the stable of famed Italian sports car manufacturer, Pagani. The mind-blowing finish and fit is made possible due to the modern carbon fiber construction which has been Pagani’s forte in supercars for a long time now. The superior styling of the Pagani Zonda F sports car means that it is real competition to its counterparts manufactured by other leading automobile giants such as Ferrari and Porsche.
The Pagani Zonda F is a special edition car that takes on the modifications of another sports car from the home of Pagani, the C12-S Monza. The entire packaging though is vastly superior and the packaging more appealing. The result is a more powerful and yet lighter supercar that incorporates the best of technology and styling. The secret of the incredible speed of this fast car lies in its aerodynamic design. Every minute aspect in the design has been done with aerodynamics in mind. Even the relocated mirrors are a good example for attention to detail. The windows are placed in such a manner so to as to facilitate undisturbed flow of air. The rear diffuser and the large front splitter means that the stabilizing ‘wings’ on the sports car create a powerful down force. This enables this fast car to be so stable even at high speeds. The use of cutting–edge technology is evident when it comes to the braking system of the sports car. The low center of gravity and flat design of the car is designed in such a manner that the supercar comes to a screeching halt even when traveling at high speeds.
The Pagani Zonda F sports car zooms from 0 to 60 mph in a matter of 3.6 seconds. This amazing sports car is designed to achieve a top speed of 214 mph / 345 kph. All the amazing power inside the Zonda F is generated from the potent Mercedes–Benz V 12 engine. The 7.3 liter engine is capable of generating a whopping 620 bhp of pulsating power. There is also a ‘club sport’ version of the Pagani Zonda F sports car which is available. This model comes allows for 650 bhp. The larger brakes in this fast car means instant braking whether on the highways or inside the city. The wheels come with the latest titanium wheel nuts. This apart you can also find that most of the trimmings in the supercar are made up of carbon fiber. All these specifications reduce the weight of the sports car substantially. The car weighs around 1230 kilograms with an empty fuel tank.
The chrome-molybdenum alloy and other aluminum alloys used in the sports car make for the superior styling that is on offer. The upholstery features selected leathers. Fine craftsmanship has gone into making this racing car light, luxurious and fast. Once you tweak the keys and the engine comes alive, you will feel that the Pagani Zonda F sports car literally slices through the air. Apart from the speed, care has been taken to incorporate the latest safety features in the fast car. The user-friendly instrumental panel, which is ergonomically designed and placed, is one good example for the attention to details. Yet another good example for this aspect would be the ‘Nardi’ steering wheel. Anyone driving this car will feel as though his/her hands are directly in contact with the surface with this steering system. A fantastic combination of aesthetics and power is what you get with a Pagani Zonda F.Porsche Carrera GT

Engine: DOHC 4 / valves 5.7-liter V-10
This Porsche's sports car is an open two-seater that comes with an easy to use roof made of lightweight carbon.
Originally Carrera GT was built for the street, however it is obvious that it is a racing car. It produced such monstrous amounts of horse power from its V10 engine that labeling it a simple street car is totally inappropriate. It easily qualifies to be named a super car. Carrera GT extends the possibilities of road driving and racing to the whole new level. It features an engine that easily tops the charts of the most powerful and fastest road cars.
With its imposing rear wing, this super sports car is easily spottable from any angle as a powerful and fast presence on the road.
Carrera engine has an incredibly low (even for a supercar) gravity center, a sixty-eight degree V angle and 4 valves for each head of cylinder. It's engine weights astonishingly only 214 kg.
911 model has been Porsche's top selling car for over three decades, however when the new Carrera GT with its specific style and substance came out, it quickly took the crown of top selling Porsche sports car. As of May 2006, 1,270 Carrera GT's had been sold.
