Dream cars. Film-star style and record fig­ures

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - CARS -

Raise the bar. A few more horse power, slightly lower con­sump­tion and emis­sions, be­cause the laws say so: we need to re­alise that the seg­ment of the world’s most pow­er­ful cars, over the next decade, will be pe­nalised eco­nom­i­cally, but also in terms of free­dom of cir­cu­la­tion. For those who can af­ford it, it is worth con­sid­er­ing the idea that the dream of pos­sess­ing a fab­u­lous su­per­car to­day is more than ideal: along­side the best me­chan­i­cal and elec­tronic tech­nol­ogy of the mo­ment, a con­tem­po­rary top model is prob­a­bly un­ri­valled in terms of the plea­sure of driv­ing a mul­ti­cylin­der en­gine, es­pe­cially if as­pi­rated, which, in ad­di­tion to sin­gle de­liv­ery, of­fers sound that is mu­sic to the ears. Vol­ume and noise are in fact the first pa­ram­e­ters to come “un­der at­tack”. Long live, then, the search for the max­i­mum per­for­mance that man can get out of car while still keep­ing it road le­gal, be­cause over this amount even an ex­pert driver would find it dif­fi­cult to ex­ploit the car’s po­ten­tial, even on the track. We’re talk­ing about per­for­mance that is sim­ply terrifying. Koenigsegg “pro­tag­o­nist at Geneva, leads the way. From its name it’s easy to de­duce that the one to one ra­tio is horse­power per kilo­gram. The tech­ni­cal data sheet speaks of one Megawatt, i.e. 1341 hp, with over 1371 Nm of torque, 0-400 in 20 seconds, 400-0 in 10. Just one sud­den brake is some­thing you’ll re­mem­ber all your life. It’s sim­ply a car that would cre­ate a good im­pres­sion at Le Mans, even aes­thet­i­cally, but it is also road le­gal.
