With 1,800HP, This Albanian Hypercar Aims To Become The World’s Fastest

It seems like every few months now a new car claims the title of the world’s fastest, with companies like Bugatti, Koenigsegg, and SSC usually trading the top spot with each other. But now a new challenger from Albania is looking to upset the cart with a hypercar capable of reaching over 500 km/h (311 mph).

The Arrera Automobili SD+ is a planned hypercar designed by company CEO Qendrim Thaqi, and it boasts some pretty eye-popping specs. The car will utilize its own software and a custom-built 7.0L V8 engine from Wolfgang Kizler to produce 1,800 horsepower and 1,106 lb-ft of torque. Weight is expected to be between 1,150 and 1,230 kg (2,535 – 2,712 lbs), thanks to a body and chassis that are fully constructed of carbon fiber. Thaqi was inspired in his design by Formula One cars, and as a result, every piece of the SD+ serves a function in the name of speed — even the small logo on the back serves as a cooling system for the engine. Arrera is expecting to launch the SD+ in 2022 and achieve its goal of becoming the world’s fastest hypercar by breaking that elusive 500 km/h barrier. Here’s hoping they pull it off.
