The World’s Fastest Car Will Debut at the Geneva Motor Show
The Italian-designed Corbellati Missile is a hypercar that can hit a top speed of 310 m.p.h., beating out Koenigsegg’s Agera RS and Hennessey’s Venom F5
To be the world’s fastest in any category—sprinter, cyclist, roller coaster—means that heads will turn in excitement. But to be the fastest car in the world? That’s a distinction many hold in the highest echelon of being the world’s fastest. Which is why the recent news of the Italian-designed Corbellati Missile debuting at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show in March is so exciting.
If we are to believe what the company is claiming, then we are on the cusp of history. According to the Corbellati family, their upcoming prototyped hypercar will feature a 9.0 V-8 engine that can churn out a shocking 1,800 horsepower and a top speed of more than 310 m.p.h. If all of this turns out to be true, then yes, history will be made as the Corbellati Missile will far surpass the lightning fast likes of Koenigsegg Agera RS (top speed of 284.5 m.p.h.) and Hennessey’s Venom F5 (top speed of 270 m.p.h.).
Although no one has actually seen the Corbellati Missile in person, pictures of the vehicle suggest the exterior aesthetic is much less menacing than the two aforementioned cars it’s looking to outpace. The angular body of the Missile measures 15.3 feet long and nearly 6.7 feet wide. The fact that almost all of the hypercar is made of carbon fiber, the engine is shockingly powerful, and that its the aerodynamics of the front promise significant downward pressure (keeping the wheels securely fastened to the pavement), means that the Corbellati Missile very well could soon become the world’s fastest car.
