People have different requirements when they’re looking for a used car in Abu Dhabi. Some prefer looks, some usability, whereas some just love the noise of a high-revving car. If you have a thing for the latter, the experts at CarSwitch.com have put together a list of some of the highest-revving cars ever manufactured.
The Lexus LFA is underpinned by a 4.8-litre V10 engine which produces 553 horsepower. The V10 features dual-stage intake, dry-sump oil system, and 10 throttle bodies. Moreover, it doesn’t have a lot of internal weight, which helps with the rpm. Speaking of which, it can rev to 9,000rpm. So, if you have a thing for engines that make a lot of noise, you will love this one.
Well, first things first, this car by the Japanese automaker offers 9,000rpm, which is incredible. Its 2.0-litre VTEC engine allows it to rev this much. Of course, the subsequent models did lower the rev limit to the dismay of many, but if you want a high revving car, the early Honda S2000 is a good pick. The car churns out 237 horsepower and 153lb ft of torque. It can go from a standstill to 60mph in just 6.2 seconds and offers a top speed of 150mph.
Porsche 918 Spyder
The Porsche 918 Spyder does marginally better than the previously mentioned cars and can hit 9,150rpm. It features a 4.6-litre V8 that is capable of churning out 612 horsepower and sounds glorious. The engine of the hyper-hybrid also gets help from the electric motors on the front and back.
Now, let’s spice things up more. One of the best limited edition supercar, the LaFerrari is underpinned by a 6.3-litre V12 engine. It can rev to 9,250 and produce 789 horsepower. And not just that, thanks to the 161 hp KERS system, this is the most powerful production Ferrari ever made. The car can go from 0 to 62 mph in under three seconds and from a standstill to 186 mph in only 15 seconds. It offers a top speed of 217 mph.
Ariel Atom V8
The Ariel Atom V8 can rev to a dizzying 10,600rpm. It has a 3.0-litre V8 engine under the hood that cranks out 500 horsepower and 284lb ft of torque. The engine was manufactured by Hartley by combining together two Suzuki Hayabusa motors. Other than that, the car can accelerate pretty fast and it also has an impressive power to weight ratio. Only 25 examples were made and each had a price tag of more than $200,000 or AED 734,580.
These will give you a pretty good idea as to what you need to look for in a high-revving used car in Abu Dhabi. Whether you’re buying or selling a car, CarSwitch.com can make the process easy, fast, and hassle-free!
