Future of Supercars The true definition of a supercar is a car that is very expensive, fast and powerful. Supercars don’t have good fuel economy. They only average about 10 MPG.Some ways supercars are becoming more fuel efficient is that the Car companies are cutting down on the weight of the car by using composite materials to make the car with. materials they are using are carbon-fiber material which is strong and lightweight. Using these lightweight materials also make the supercars quick as lightning and the ability for the companies to develop new engines that have more horsepower and less weight. The best and most powerful supercar is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport. The reason the Bugatti is the best supercar is because it has 16 cylinders generating 1200 HP. The top speed of the Bugatti is over 280 MPH. This supercar has a seven gear clutch transmission producing 1,250 Newton meters of torque. The Bugatti reaches velocities that would lift the car off the ground, due to the ingenious aerodynamics it is firmly held to the ground at full speed. The Bugatti’s brakes slow the car faster then the car can accelerate. The Bugatti can go from 0-60 in a mere 2.3 seconds and 4.5 seconds from 0-100. The Bugatti is made from the lightweight materials such as carbon. The Bugatti is 100 percent carbon. The Bugatti is built with formula one safety standards, so the car is safe to drive at the top speed of 280 MPH. The Veryon’s Fuel economy is about eight MPG in the city and 13 MPG on the highway. The air resistance on the Bugatti is a mere 0.39 of drag. The reason the drag is so little is because the car 2 is so flat which makes the air just flow over the hood and the roof of the car. The curb weight if the
