What is the Second Fastest Car in the World?
When it comes to fast cars, there are a few names that immediately come to mind – Bugatti, Lamborghini, and McLaren, to name a few. But which car is the second fastest in the world? Let’s take a closer look.
The Current Title Holder
At the time of this writing, the second fastest car in the world is the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut. This Swedish supercar has a top speed of 330 miles per hour, just shy of the current record holder, the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, which can reach speeds of 304 miles per hour.
The Jesko Absolut’s Features
So, what makes the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut so fast? For starters, it has a five-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 1,600 horsepower. It also has a lightweight carbon fiber body and a specially designed 9-speed transmission that allows it to reach its incredible speeds.
Of course, the Jesko Absolut isn’t the only car vying for the title of second fastest in the world. Other contenders include:
- The Hennessey Venom F5, which is targeting a top speed of 311 miles per hour
- The Rimac C_Two, which has a top speed of 258 miles per hour
- The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which has a top speed of 267 miles per hour
While the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ currently holds the title of fastest car in the world, the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut isn’t too far behind. With a top speed of 330 miles per hour, it’s an impressive feat of engineering and a worthy contender for the title of second fastest car in the world.
