If you didn’t know before, now you do. There is an auto club dedicated to recognizing some of the most powerful cars in the industry, and that’s the 700hp club. Not long ago, that number was just 600hp and 500hp before that. Technology has brought the future to now, and some of the cars on this list surpass 700hp by quite a mark. Innocence is truly bliss in this case because how could you not want to get into the driver seat of some of these raging beauties? Here is the top five among the newest members of the 700hp auto club. You better buckle up!
Aston Martin Valkyrie
This is the hypercar from the future—it looks like it, feels like it, and probably even drives like it. This Formula 1 car is hardly one that you can drive on the street. It is legal on the roads, but from one glance you’ll know that it just doesn’t belong there. Boasting 1,000 hp, this machine is a 6.5-liter V-12. It is sleek and it is sexy. It’s no wonder Aston Martin has partnered with Red Bull in design of this vehicle. It may very well have wings on its own. They’re set to release 150 road-going versions of the Valkyrie and 25 AMR pros that tops at 225 mph. Aston Martin has already sold the first 25 of these AMR beauties before it even hits market on 2020. So even if you have the budget to spend over $4.2mil on the car, you’re out of luck as of now.
Bugatti Chiron Sport
When Bugatti first released the Chiron, it didn’t quite live up to expectations. This year, they’ve introduced the Chiron Sport, an improved version that offers 1,479 hp. In addition to that, it’s also improved many other things under the hood and outside of it. If you want one of these cars, you won’t have to wait as long as they’ll be available for purchase by the end of this year. The only thing is you’ll have to fork out is at least $3.67 million to own one of these. We’ll have to say it’ll be well worth your money.
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1
This list will not be complete without a Corvette. Of course it’s no ordinary Corvette—it’s the ZR1. It’s stylish, powerful, luxurious, and everything else that a supercar could be. This model was actually first seen in 2014 and is expecting a redesign soon. The ZR1 looks speedy enough with its massive wing, but under the hood, you get a 6.2-liter V-8 engine that’s capable of 755 hp. That’s not a bad Corvette, especially when priced at around $120k to start. Matter of fact, the ZR1 is Corvette’s fastest, and if Corvettes are known for one thing, it’ll be speed. If you want a sports car driven for performance, this is the one for you.
Dodge Challenger SRT Demon
Designed and manufactured with a drag strip in mind, the Dodge Challenger Demon really took it to the next level with this new release. The Challenger Demon can go an impressive 60 mph in 2.1 seconds. That’s awesome and scary at the same time, and you might wonder if you’ll ever need a car like this at all. But while the car may be made for the strip, you can drive it on the streets just as well, safely and legally. At just $86k, the Challenger Demon is a steal as it gives you 840 hp. Dodge is releasing only 3,000 of these speedsters just this year, so act fast if you’ve got your eyes set on one.
Ferrari 812 Superfast
And super fast it really is. What else would you be driving a Ferrari for if not for speed? Okay. Style, sophistication, and power may all play a part, but the Ferrari 812 Superfast is built for the fast life. It can go at top speeds of up to 211 mph and go 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and hit 128 mph in just 8 seconds. That’s not all. Powered by a 6.5-liter V-12 engine, this Ferrari gets 789 hp. While pricing has not been announced for this Italian marvel of engineering, the Ferrari 812 Superfast is expected to go well beyond $320k.
