A Koenigsegg Agera RS attempting to break the World Production Speed Record (previously held by the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport) on a closed road in Nevada.

Observe what happens after the car hits 180mph.

Koenigsegg Agera RS Achieves Multiple Production Car World Speed Records (Koenigsegg)

Behold: the fastest road car on Earth – the Hennessey Venom F5.

A lightweight carbon fibre body powered by a twin-turbo V8, 1,620bhp engine that can accelerate from 0 to 400km/h (249mph) in 30 seconds and on to a frankly outrageous top speed of 484km/h (301mph)

Behold the low-slung, gull-winged curvaceousness of the Owl electric supercar – a working concept debuted at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show by mysterious Japanese technical consulting firm Aspark.

Watch the frankly ridiculous 2 second 0-100km/h acceleration of its chassis (minus the swanky shell above) here.

Behold: the Kode O by Japanese industrial designer Ken Okuyama (who had a hand in the Porsche 911 and Ferrari Enzo) – an actual 700bhp, V12 carbon fibre supercar modelled along the pointy, slanty lines of 1970s Lamborghinis and Lancias.

There are currently no production plans for the Kode O so, in all likelihood, this is the only one that will ever exist.

Limited to 66 vessels with jacuzzi, fire pit, champagne bar, hot tub and more polished metal, suede and carbon fibre than you can shake a trust fund at.

Specifically built for racing, the Ford GT Competition Series is a lightened, lowered, stripped of creature comforts carbon fibre and acrylic perspex version of its flagship road racer, which ceased production in 2006.

Behold the Nio EP9 electric supercar. With a frankly alarming 1MW (1342bhp equivalent) powerplant, it will accelerate from 0 to 200km/h in 7.1 seconds and top out at 313km/h (195mph). Custom brakes and active wings deliver the downforce of an F1 racer.

Also, it looks like that.

A new exhibit at the Gallery of Steel Figures in the Polish city of Pruszków – four iconic racers (a Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, a Bugatti Veyron, a Maserati GranTurismo, and a Lamborghini Aventador) built to scale from scrap metal with scrupulous attention to detail by 50 artists over the last five years.

The influential 300hp V8 Maserati Boomerang, designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro.

Debuted at the 1971 Turin Motor Show, it went on to inspire the lines of many iconic cars, including the DeLorean DMC-12, Lotus Esprit and Mk 1 VW Golf.
