Cars have come a long way in terms of features, comfort, safety, and everything in between. The more that we can put into a car, the more that we’ll use it. People are driving everywhere they need to go, preferring it to air travel sometimes because they’re able to control the experience in a different way. Not to mention that it’s great to have a car with features you can brag about to your friends. Below are just a few of the latest advances in auto technology that are on the horizon.
1. Self Driving Cars
We would be remiss if we didn’t include something about the self-driving car. Google has poured a ton of research into making sure that we can ride around while the car does all of the work. There have been some accidents, sure, but they’ve been collisions caused by other drives. Gosh, sounds a lot like real life right?
This technology amazes us because it could severely cut down on fatigue while getting from one place to another. It would also prevent accidents as people wouldn’t have to dose themselves with caffeine just to stay alert enough to drive. There are some obvious health benefits to this.
2. Biometric Locks
Biometrics is already here to stay, but it just gets better and better over item. Imagine going to your car and opening it without a key. You could have a fingerprint reader that will only unlock the vehicle for you and anyone else that you add to the reader’s file. You see this in the movies a lot with retina scanners more than hand or fingerprint machines, but hey, anything’s possible right? Continue reading “4 Great Features of Today’s Tech-Enhanced Cars”
Imagine a world where you could fly down the open road in the car of your dreams, where money and speeding tickets aren’t a problem. Wouldn’t that be amazing? While you can’t do that in real life, there are some incredible cars that truly earn the title of “fastest car around”. Ready to dream with us? Here are a few cars to check out!
1. Hennessey Venom GT
This car dominates the list at 270 miles per hour, or 435 km/h. This sleek car can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds, making it the stuff of dreams for many car enthusiasts around the world. It has a world class V8 twin turbo engine that can produce over 1200 hp. Of course, all of this engineering comes at a high price: over a million dollars! It’s the fastest car around today, with plenty of muscle under the hood to keep things interesting.
2. Koenigsegg Agera R
This beautiful car is designed for speed more than roominess. SO if you were hoping to take the kids out for a spin in a fast car, you’re out of luck. The Koenigsegg Agera is built for speed with twin turbos that have the power to put out almost 1100 hp. For 1.6 million dollars, you can put one in your driveway. The current top speed for this beautiful engineering marvel is 260 mph. Not bad, even though “theoretical” speeds place it higher. If you manage to test one, let us know!
3. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo
Want something a little cheaper? The Saleen S7 starts at just 555 thousand dollars, a discount compared to some of the other cars on the list. You get to go from 0 to 60 in 2.8 seconds. This All-American beauty sports 500 horsepower from the beginning. Definitely a car to keep on your list.
4. McLaren F1
The McLaren brand is familiar to anyone that’s watched more than their fair share of action movies. It’s the type of car that the ultra-rich playboy drives…when they aren’t involved in a drug heist, a car bust, or something equally dangerous. This car can go from 0 to 60 in 3.2 seconds. Not as fast as the Venom, but it’s definitely a headturner nonetheless. It starts at 970 thousand dollars and climbs up from there depending on what extra features you want to add, or any fine-tuning you want to do under the hood. The coolest thing about the F1 is that the doors open up from the sides like wings, rather than the traditional way.
So, out of these picks, which one is your favorite? We’re crazy about fast cars, and we’ll definitely hit you with some more cool picks. Stay tuned!
