There was a time when the fastest cars were simply classified as supercars. The first car to carry the supercar tag was the Bentley Speed Six in 1920 when its levels of performance were unmatched in its era. Since then, the fastest cars have been called supercars.
However, today there is a new breed of expensive high-performance sports cars that offer speeds that are unmatched by any of the traditional supercars. These hypercars push the boundaries of technology to bring the performance of racing cars to street-legal vehicles.
Koenigsegg Gemera: 249 MPH
The Koenigsegg Gemera is the family-friendly cousin of the Koenigsegg Regera. Cars built by Koenigsegg have traditionally been two-seaters, and the Gemera is the first four-seater vehicle built by the company.
Surface Transforms plc (LON:SCE) are experts in the development and production of carbon-ceramic materials and the UK’s only manufacturer of carbon-ceramic brakes for automotive use. Koenigsegg nominated SCE as a tier one sole supplier on their Gemera car.
