The speed is as American as the Constitution, Taco Bell and the Super Bowl. It is in our DNA; In fact, it puts any American, regardless of age, behind the wheel of a fast car and watches their faces light up with pure, unadulterated joy as they step on the accelerator. It’s just what we are. Sure, Europe can claim the supercar, but they could never in their wildest dreams begin to match the pure vandalism of a great V8, a foot of lead, cheap gas and hundreds of kilometers of straight and flat road.
And with technology increasing power and maximum speeds, while emissions and prices fall, American automakers are in the midst of a golden age that dates back to the days of powerful and powerful muscle cars in the 60s and 70. Only now, we have discovered how to handle Europeans and, as a result, our best high-performance cars are also among the best on the planet.
Americans have not only been able to defend themselves on the international stage when it comes to speed, but they can also claim the fastest cars in the world. And after several generations of design and engineering adjustments, speed has been democratized and is now available to almost all users with a driver’s license. And although our daily drivers have been faster, our performance cars have gone completely crazy.
These 10 fastest vehicles manufactured in the United States are a sight to behold, and are a rarity in themselves. If you take a look at one, be sure to have the camera ready, as it is very likely that they have gone in the blink of an eye. As a reference, we have compiled them here into an easy-to-read list.
Yes, the P90D is limited to a maximum speed of “only” 155 miles per hour, just like a full-size Mercedes SUV. But unlike other cars in the 155 club (a common maximum speed for limited cars), the P90D has 762 horsepower and can run from zero to 60 at a watering of 2.8 seconds. The maximum speed will be condemned, the P90D is simply fast.
