Two of the most powerful and expensive hypercars – a SSC Ultimate Aero and a Mosler Raptor GTR – headline the CF Charities Super Car Show.
SSC Ultimate Aero or Mosler Raptor GTR (#001 of one, by the way)? Left or right?
Ah, but this time there’s more to choosing between one 1287hp 6.3-litre supercharged V8 and one 838hp 7.0-litre twin-turbo V8. And yes, it’s not just down to 0-100kph in 2.8 seconds and a 439kph (projected) top speed on one side, and 0-100kph in 2.6 seconds and a 386kph top speed on the other.
The above two hypercars for instance are part of the first annual CF Charities Super Car Show, an event that donates 100 per cent of its proceedings to charity. More specifically the CF Charities, which help disadvantaged youths with dental disease.
Showcasing the world’s most luxurious and most powerful supercars, the CF Charities Super Car Show boasted banner supercars from Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, McLaren, Lotus, and even the world of Formula 1 and NASCAR. Those who missed this year’s show can catch the second instalment in June 8 next year.
Okay, this might be a little too ‘public service announcement’ for crankandpiston.com, but when was the last time you saw two Bugatti Veyron baiters in the same line-up?
