The 8 highest revving Production cars to this day! (Car news)
Thought I would make something interesting! So here are the top 8 factory stock cars that have the biggest rev limit! Let's begin! No. 8: Audi R8 V10 Plus This car has a surprising amount for a german car, with the 610hp 5.2 L V10 engine making over 8.700 rpm! Not bad for a car that accelerates from 0-60 in 2.7 seconds.
No.7: Honda Integra type R For it's time, it was probably one of the highest revving car. At 1990's, the amount of 8.800 rpm made from the Honda B18C was a mind-blowing number, and it's still one of the highest revving production cars ever made.
No.6: Honda S2000 Ah, the legendary Honda S2000. How could we forget the small and famous Japanese sports car that can make around 9000 rpm with the F20C under its hood? What a car that is, still to this day!
No.5: Ferrari LaFerrari Here is the most powerful road car by Ferrari and the 5th highest revving production car. This beast, with the help of a 6.3 L V12 that makes 789hp, can reach an impressive amount of 9.250 rpm. Ferrari hasn't failed us a lot of times, but this time they perfected their engineering.
No.4: Honda S600 It is 60 years old, yet it beats a Ferrari and an Audi R8 on revving, the S600 made 9.5K rpm. An unimaginable amount of rpm for the 60s. And all that rpm comes from only a 92hp engine. Who said you have to pay a lot to have a ear-breaking car?
No.3: Mazda RX-8 type S Another famous Japanese car, the type S was a different edition of the RX-8. This edition though, fitted with another rpm-thirsty wankel engine, makes 9.5K rpm, matching the S600. Japan sometimes finds surprising ways to impress us.
No.2: Lexus LFA Why do I put the LFA 2nd while it has 9.5K rpm as well? It makes one of the best sounds coming from an engine while making 9.5K rpm. The 2010 Lexus LFA has impressive performance, and holds the record for the highest revving V10 to this day. Lexus went all-out to reach that rev limit, making any improvement possible on that V10.
No.1: Ariel Atom V8 500 This thing is on it's own category for now. This is what happens when you combine 2 Hayabusa engines and put them into a 550kg body. You have the Ariel Atom V8, making over 10.5K rpm (10.6 to be exact!). Now this, is a true rev-happy car
Thanks for reading through all this! Hope you liked it, and tell me what else could I do for y'all? I'm interested in your opinion!
