By "racing car," we can understand a very broad spectrum of vehicles. We will not focus on professional racing cars but rather on modern supercars and hypercars that were introduced in 2021-2022. Each of them has become a true sensation, and we invite you to take a look at these beauties to see for yourself why they deserve to be in this ranking of the best of the best!

1. Tesla Roadster

Despite the financial crisis and the decline in stock prices, Tesla continues to gain momentum and work on new models of its electric cars. It's no wonder that electric motor vehicles are becoming so popular. In Europe, more and more buyers are opting for eco-friendly cars.

Thus, the Tesla Roadster became the latest model to date. Its expressive design (detachable roof, aggressive "wings," a yoke instead of a steering wheel) is not the only thing that has impressed buyers. Inside the electric car is a powerful setup. The motor has a power of 1341 hp and allows acceleration up to 400 km/h. And this is while having a range of about 1,000 km!

In general, the Tesla Roadster is about to be released for sale, and it is expected to make a real splash. The base version starts at $200,000.

2. Audi R8 Decennium

Technically speaking, the Audi R8 is not a new model from the famous German corporation. Nevertheless, the limited edition Decennium is already presented, and it significantly differs from the first models. This coupe is a specimen of luxury combined with power and speed.

Thus, the V10 engine with a capacity of 5.2 liters and 332 hp can accelerate this supercar to 332 km/h. At the same time, both the driver and the passenger will feel as comfortable as possible. And why be surprised? It's an Audi after all!

A total of 222 units will be produced. The price in Germany will start from 220,000 euros.

3. Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS

Porsche does not stop in its quest to create various and unique sports cars. Thus, the long-known Cayman continues to appear in various variations. At the end of 2021, the company introduced the novelty: the updated and improved GT4 called RS. The model immediately became the flagship of the entire 718 lineup.

Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS turned out to be slightly lighter than its "donor" (1415 kg) and slightly faster. The six-cylinder naturally aspirated engine with a volume of 6 liters and 500 hp allows the car to accelerate to 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds. And the maximum speed is 315 km/h.

The price in Europe for this beauty starts from 141,000 euros, which is quite good for such luxury. It was expected that the model would be more expensive.

Aston Martin Valkyrie

This track car impresses with its unique appearance and technical characteristics. The chic hybrid fully meets the definition of “racing” due to its aerodynamics and level of downforce. Aston Martin Valkyrie is a real car, embodied in luxury and a comfortable interior.

Light weight (just over 1 thousand kg) and a powerful 1100 hp naturally aspirated V12 engine. With. makes the Valkyrie the ultimate performance hypercar. It can easily cross the 400 km/h mark, and it accelerates from 320 km/h in just 10 seconds. Interestingly, the stop occurs very quickly: in 5 seconds.

The car was released in 2021, with 150 examples of the regular version priced at $3 million and 25 examples priced at $3.5 million selling out almost immediately. In 2022, Aston Martin announced the possibility of an additional release.

Mazda RX-9

This announcement has been hanging on the Internet for a long time: Mazda has been talking for several years that it is about to present a new version of the sports car to the suffering viewers. A kind of updated RX-7, which at one time became a cult car - not only due to its technical characteristics, but also the popularity of computer games in the NFS series.

In 2022, the company finally revealed what the RX-9 will look like. In addition to this, particularly persistent journalists managed to find out that the car will weigh 1.3 metric tons and have an engine with a power of about 400 hp. It is expected that this supercar will be valued at no less than $80,000, which will be an absolute record for Mazda.

Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut

Koenigsegg regularly releases limited editions of elite supercars, and each time it intrigues with something new. The Jesko Absolut model has a V8 engine with twin turbocharging and a power of 1603 hp when using racing fuel.

Interestingly, this car is expected to set a new speed record. In theory, it can reach a speed of up to 532 km/h, which will currently be considered an absolute record. So far, no tests have been conducted, so the hypercar simply enters the ranking of the fastest cars.

The limited edition implies the production of 125 units at a price starting from $3 million and above. In 2021, all cars were sold out on pre-order.

Hispano-Suiza Carmen Boulogne

Perhaps, until this moment, you haven't even come across the name Hispano-Suiza if you weren't interested in vintage cars. Because Hispano-Suiza released its first car in 2021 after an almost 90-year hiatus! And it must be said that the result impressed everyone.

The Carmen Boulogne model is a fully electric coupe, which has quite decent characteristics. For example, the car can accelerate to a hundred in 2.7 seconds, which puts it on par with the highest-speed cars of more well-known brands. At the same time, the maximum speed is limited to 290 km/h.

There are only 5 units in production, each of which will cost the future owner less than $2 million.

Porsche 911 Hybrid

Another novelty from Porsche in our selection. The 911 model with a hybrid engine is not so much a desire to present something new as it is a necessity. The whole world is slowly "transitioning" to electric vehicles, and hybrids are an easy way to smoothly switch to more environmentally friendly cars. That's why Porsche decided to make the new 911 not only more modern but also "greener."

The prototype was presented in 2022, and at the same time, the chief engineer spoke about some design features of the hybrid. However, the main technical characteristics are still unknown. Porsche claims that this "secret" will be revealed in 2023.

Aston Martin Valhalla

Valhalla is the brother of Valkyrie, but designed more for ordinary roads than for tracks. This is evident both from its exterior and from its more modest technical characteristics. It reaches a speed of 330 km/h thanks to an engine with a power of 1,000 hp, which is still impressive.

This rear-wheel-drive hybrid is perfect for those who appreciate maximum comfort and bold, open style. The price of the hypercar starts from $1 million, and a total of 500 units will be produced.

Koenigsegg Gemera

Koenigsegg regularly makes it onto the list of companies producing the fastest and most powerful supercars. And it's not surprising: almost every year, Koenigsegg delights the world with its novelties. In 2022, the Gemera model attracted attention, immediately becoming number one in many ratings.

The reason lies in its versatility. The car is designed not only for high-speed driving on tracks but also for comfortable everyday use. For example, there is an entertainment system for children in the back of the car! In what other sports car can you see such a wonder? Also, the car reaches 403 km/h, and it accelerates to a hundred in a record-breaking 1.9 seconds.

Production of 300 units started in 2022, which will be sold in 2023. The cost of one Koenigsegg Gemera car will start from $1.6 million.
