Ahh cars… they are a way of life for the average American. If you live in Arizona you likely own one since no one wants to ride a bike in that heat! You can even cook breakfast going from Gilbert to Mesa under that solar oven we call the sun! Ok, maybe not exactly. Either way, cars have become an essential part of life for many of us. We use them every day. With this frequent use, over time a very important spark begins to flicker out of the deep, dark corners of the farthest reaches of our minds and it asks one very important question:
How fast can this thing go?
Some of us know the answer that question… and hopefully if was by looking it up on the internet and staying safe on the road! You might own a pretty fast vehicle yourself but most likely there is something out there even faster, especially if it’s a supercar. According to GlobalCarsBrands.com, the current fastest supercar known to man is the Koenigsegg Agera R clocking in at a top speed of 273 Mph! It’s pretty fast. It’s not the typical vehicle you would find at your Glendale Peoria auto repair shop. So how does that compare to the other fastest land speeds out there?
A quick Google search will show that Usain Bolt has run at a speed of 28 Mph, a cheetah can get up to 75 Mph, and Formula 1 cars have been recorded going at speeds of up to 225 Mph while on a circuit (racetrack). If you’re faster than a Formula 1 car, you’re going pretty fast. And the best part is...the Koenigsegg Agera R is available for purchase! Now you and all your neighbors can own one! That is, if you and all your neighbors pitch in for the price of just one. This puppy will cost a pretty dime at a little over $1.1 million. Mortgages are so last month!
While the 273 Mph is the current supercar record, there is no doubt that it will soon be surpassed by future supercars. We might not all get to experience that kind of speed firsthand and likely some of us are perfectly happy that’s the case. Of course, there’s no shame in being safe. With that, this has been your Phoenix, Gilbert, Mesa, Glendale Peoria auto repair shop keeping it real! Stay safe!
