Privé International is always on the lookout when it comes to the latest yacht, private jet or in this case supercar. Here is the next vehicle that claims to be the world’s fastest street-legal sports car – the Weber Sportcars Faster One.
Reportedly, the car can go from 0 – 62 mph in 2.7 seconds, 0 – 124 mph in just 6.6 seconds, and has a top speed said to be over 248 mph! Which would beat out the Bugatti Veyron. The twin-blown eight is mated to an in-house-developed 6-speed sequential gearbox. Power is directed to an intelligent AWD system (also developed in-house) that can send a maximum of 36% of power to the front wheels.
For around $1.5 million, you get a 900-horsepower / 774 lb-ft twin-supercharged V8 engine and a set of 12-piston, 15-inch ceramic brakes.
“Favorable aerodynamic properties are absolutely elementary in order to attain a top speed of more than 400 km/h. The car body of the WEBER SPORTCARS (Faster One) is 204 centimeters wide and 115 centimeters high. It is made entirely from ultra-light yet super-strong carbon fiber. State-of-the-art aerodynamics computer software and wind-tunnel testing were employed to trim the carbon-fiber shell for maximum directional stability at the highest speeds.”
