What is the top speed of a formula 1 car?
In Top Speeds
During races they reach a top speed of around 190 mph. Honda set the speed record at 257 mph in a fully legal car set up for speed on a straight road.
Current regs are a V-8 engine, 2.4 liters, normally aspirated,limited to 19,000rpm, weighing no less than 95kg. Cylinders musthave 4 valves, single spark plug and single injector, and variablevalve timing is not allowed. Cylinder blocks must be aluminumalloy, crankshaft and cams iron alloy, and pist…ons aluminum alloy.Composites are not allowed in the engine structural elements. Thestarter system is not part of the engine system- external removablestarters are required. Engines may have anti stall devices, butmust shut down within ten seconds after an accident. regs change.Answer Basic specifications include that the engine has a capacitylimit of 3.0 litres and must have ten cylinders. However, there isa host of other regulations concerning height, width, weight,braking systems etc, plus many more. F1 cars in for more then 10 years used 3.0 litre V10 engines thatvery capable of producing 980 to 1000HP. After the FIA startedtaking notice F1 car engines were limited to 2.4 litres producing750HP.

The top speed ever acheived by a formula one car during a race was 369.9 km/h (229.8 mph) set during the 2004 Italian Grand Prix at Monza, Italy by driver AntÃ´nio Pizzonia of the BMW Williams F1 team driving the FW26 powered by a BMW 3.0 litre v10.
Answer . Micro cars, that is, 2 seat cars with sub 1.3 litre engines, about 140 kph (85 mph). Small cars, 4 seats such as Toyota Corolla, 170 kph (106 mph). Medium cars, 5 seats such as BMW 318i, 230 kph (142 mph). Large cars, for example, Lexus IS 500, 250 kph (155 mph). Sports cars, such as… Aston Martin DB8, 280 kph (174 mph), BMW M3 285 kph (178 mph) Chrysler Viper 273 kph (170 mph). Supercars like the Porsche GT3, 305 kph (190 mph). Hypercars such as Pagani Zonda, 370 kph (235 mph) Bugatti Veyron 407kph (253 mph) Ultima Aero 412 kph (257 mph). 99% of every day cars fit somewhere between 170 kph and 230 kph so the average top speed of most cars would be 200 kph (124 mph). Suvs, popular in the USA would average around 190 kph (118 mph) as they have large frontal areas and high drag. This is despite large power outputs.. The true top speed of any particular car would occur on a smooth, flat, straight road with no wind and cool conditions. The engine needs to be freshly serviced and be able to produce maximum power. The tyre pressures need to be the maximum for that vehicle. All windows need to be wound up and the air conditioning off. Drive safely and within the law at all times! (MORE)
The cars are constructed from composites of carbon fibre and similar ultra-lightweight (and expensive to manufacture) materials. The minimum weight permissible is 605 kg (1334 lb) including the driver, fluids and on-board cameras. However, all F1 cars weigh significantly less than this (some as litt…le as 440 kg ) so teams add ballast to the cars to bring them up to the minimum legal weight. The advantage of using ballast is that it can be placed anywhere in the car to provide ideal weight distribution. (MORE)
Answer . The strict regulations mean that the teams inevitably end up with very similarly sized cars. As a typical example, the 2007 season Toyota TF107 is 453cm long, 180cm wide and 95cm high.. Hope This Helps..
IT is more than 300km/hr! it could be as high as 360 -380 kph depending on there gearing
In 1996, Paul Tracy recorded a trap speed of 256.948 mph (413.52 km/h) at Michigan International Speedway.
The current engine size for Formula One cars are 2.4 Litre V8's. This rule has been in place since the 2006 Season.
If its a race car your talking about with a Yamaha 1200 or 1250cc motor and 5 speed transmission, they can run about 120 or 125 depending on the rear end gear. but they usually would never get close to this because their either running on a 1/4 or 1/2 mile track. The bigest track I've ever ran mine …on is a road course. I cant remember how big it was but we could get up to about 90. (MORE)
depends completely on the cars aerodynamic setup, gear ratios, ect. The highest recorded speed however of an F1 car was by the 2005 Honda F1 car which reached a flash reading of 400km/h at Bonneville however because it could not reach it on the way back its official speed record 397km/h. The quickes…t F1 car speed of the 2011 season was 350km/h by Sergio Perez at Monza though on average the top speed of an F1 car at an average circuit would be around 315km/h (MORE)
Cars are designed to have a top speed for safety reasons. An engine can only spin at so many RPMs before things start to fly off or destroy themselves. The same holds true for the rest of the moving parts on a car. Tires can only handle so many RPMs before the rubber starts to come apart. The faster… things spin the greater the centrifical force.

US car production was dealt a setback because of World War II. In 1940 pre World War II the US produced 4,680,000 cars. Although each decade in history is different the decade of the 1940's is by far the most unusual in U.S. automobile history. This was the only period of time when automobile produc…tion stopped for a period of 3-4 years. No cars were manufactured after 1942 due to the advent of World War II. Production for civilians did not resume until 1946 .Early 1940's saw the first time luxury cars started rolling off a production line. A car showed the wealth and status of its owner. Cars like the Delahaye 135 convertible whose top speeds reached 95 mph , the Delahaye was the ultimate 1940 luxury car. . Source: http://www.anythingaboutcars.com/1940scars.html. _ After World War II, Toyota was kept busy making trucks, but by 1947 it began making the Model SA, called the Toyopet. The Toyopet was not powerful and had a low top speed -- 55 mph from a 27 horsepower engine -- but it was designed to be cheap, and to handle the rough roads of postwar Japan.. source: "http://www.anythingaboutcars.com/1950scars.html" (MORE)
An Formula One cra with a full tank is capable of maintaining its top speed (220mph) for precisley 16minutes 7.56 seconds. This is only possible if there is enough straight road.. Answeered By F1 Genius.
EDIT: A Newer crown Victoria Police Interceptor will max out at 120 because of the speed limiter. The older models had drive-line failure during high speed (130-140mph) driving so they added a limiter. (police interceptor crown Victoria's made before 2006 have a speed limiter set at 140 mph) All… true Police cars should have a tire speed rating of W (168 mph) so that is not a factor in its top speed. the charger based police cars come in 2 flavors, The wild and crazy 5.7L Hemi V8 and the calm 3.5L V6. The V8 has the speed limiter set at 146mph. The V6 at 137 mph. Also The Chevrolet Tahoe SUV (some areas have them, I know mine does) Has a max speed of a 133mph and i think this is drag limited The Chevrolet Impala police car has a max speed of 139mph with the 3.9L V6 But needess to say it is the wrong idea to run from the cops because if they catch you the circumstances will be worse for you than if you just stopped in the first place. But at 145 mph cops can't read your plates...so just keep going (in 5 sec you will be more than 2 miles away already). (MORE)
F1 cars and the cutting edge technology that constitute them produce an unprecedented combination of outright speed and quickness for the drivers. Every F1 car on the grid is capable of going from 0 to 160 km/h (100 mph) and back to 0 in less than five seconds.. Below is how fast a F1 car can rea…ch 300 Kmph.. 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph): 1.7 seconds. 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph): 3.8 seconds. 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph): 8.6 seconds. Most F1 cars have a top speed of over a 300 kmph with some cars reaching 330 kmph in fast straight circuits like US, Japan etc. (MORE)
This depends on whether the car has been set up for a track or for experimental purposes. Monza is currently the fastest F1 track on the calendar. After Parabolica, a long 180 degree turn where most of the downforce is needed, cars speed up to about 355kph, which is about 220mph. In terms of s…peed on a straight line, I dare not say how fast an F1 car goes because I believe it hasn't been tested with the current F1 V8 engines. I believe there was a team (Honda V10 at the Bonneville Salt Flats?) who tried to beat 400kph, and as I recall didn't succeed. I recently saw an episode of Top Gear, with James May explaining that Bugatti asked the former Sauber F1 team in Switzerland if they could use their wind tunnel to simulate aerodynamics on the Veyron at 400kph, but Sauber had to disappoint Bugatti because their wind tunnel doens't go up to that speed. So, kind of unexplained territory! Top Gear also set the indoor Formula 1 speed record. A 2006 Toyota F1 V10 did 81mph. It couldn't deliver its power to the wheels properly because the indoor surface was far too slippery. I reckon that under ideal circumstances and without major changes to bodywork or engine a 2008 Formula 1 car could go up to 370km/h. I'm not sure how the 2009 cars would perform. (MORE)
Most Formula One cars have a top speed of over a 300 km/h with some cars reaching 330 km/h in fast straight circuits like Monza, Japan etc. The highest speed ever to reach by an Formula One car is 368.16 km/h and without the wings are capable of reaching over 400 km/h.
It depends on the car and the equipment used to drive it. . Most muscle cars lack a governor or a speed-control device, which allows the car to reach its max speed potential. The typical top speed of a muscle car during their prime era, was around 130-135mph. This is all the engine could push the c…ar with the stock transmission without over-revving and damaging the motor. The cars were not meant for top speed as much as they were made for quickness and throttle response. (MORE)
A Honda Formula One car, running with minimum downforce on a runway in the Mojave desert achieved a top speed of 415 km/h (258 mph) in 2006. According to Honda the car fully met the FIA Formula One regulations. Cars in races reach speeds of up to 350 kph (220 mph) on some circuits. 251mph for Ferrar…is, a bit more for Mclaren and a bit less for Red Bull (MORE)
buggati veryon goes 407kmh max and it is record. . That's the current record for an unmodified production vehicle, Top fuel dragsters and funny cars currently reach speeds around 330 mph (531 kph) and the world land speed record for a wheeled vehicle is 763.035 mph (1227.986 kph). There is no real… answer to the question because the top speed of a vehicle is determined primarily by power output, aerodynamics, wind resistance and weight, and that varies with every vehicle and varies every time you drive it.

in 2010, the race grid was going to be expanded to 26, but a couple of teams withdrew their applications (USF1 if i remember right) so the grid has been 24 for this season and the previous season
they do not have ABS, or anti-lock brakes since 2008/9. they were removed because of a belief in the FIA that it was getting too easy to race a F1 car.
it is around 40 mph slow ain't it u must have had foot on brake not accelerater. try 91 mph
bugati veyron has the top speed in the world. it has speed of 497 km/hrs
It cant just accelerate to the endless, at some point a car's power wouldn't be powerfull enought to go faster, because the air gets thicker the faster you go, and the car looses grip, this is why high performance cars needs a powerfull engine, great aerodynamics and good tires.
It depends on the car, because different manufacturers will build different cars and use different designs. A car has to weigh at least 605kg to enter a race, including the driver, fluids and on-board cameras. The overall weight will be determined by the starting weight, fuel and the drivers weight.… (MORE)
A F1 car is streamline because teams spend millions working out how to make the car efficiently with low drag.
Mach 1 means the speed of sound. The speed of sound is 343meters per second, 1,126ft/sec or 768mph.
The 'top speed' of a car generally refers to the maximum speed (in either miles per hour of kilometers per hour) that a car can achieve based upon the manufacturer's original design specifications. Any car's top speed is limited by a number of factors, including electronic limiters, aerodynamic forc…es acting on the car and tire speed ratings. The top speed of a car can be increased or decreased by altering any or all of these factors. It is critically important that the tire speed rating is matched to the actual top speed of the vehicle to prevent 'blow outs' at high speeds. (MORE)
have it in top gear, drive along at 1000rpm, note the speed, then drive up to 2000rpm, just say 25mph increase, now depending what rpm your limited to multiply 25mph by how many revs you have. e.g 6500rpm multiply by 25mph = 162.5mph
Typical F1 car of 700 horse powers will make noise at ~145 decibels. This means you can hear at the distance of 6 miles.
1000 mph to 3000 or it will explode in your face and you will die or get very very hurt !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
F1 cars never really get up to their absolute top speed as even inqualifying, they wouldn't get to their max speed. To get to highspeed at tracks like Monza and SPA during a qualifying race weekendsession. Low downforce with aero stream can help to get a F1 car toit top speed at the track. For off t…rack, it those with a longenough road bearing in mind tyres can explode and to have enoughfuel to get to speed without effecting performance. (MORE)
You can change the differential gear ratio but you will sacrifice quickness on the lower end unless you have sufficient horsepower.
Very good question, i know plenty of car racers and car lovers who wouldn't be able to start an f1 experience car on the first try. This is how it goes: First, a huge 'Prod' like is plonked/plugged in quickly into the back of the car, where the gearbox is usually, with the driver being already in th…e car, he ignite the engine, and start clutching and revving the engine. This is very hard to do, usually with normal drivers the car will just stall. Once a Formula One car's engine is started its need to move becomes very urgent. As they are designed to operate at high speed (where there is a good supply of cooling air flowing over surfaces) modern Formula One cars have very little in the way of cooling - and the heat created by running engines while stationary puts enormous strain on the mechanical parts of the car.

The Bullet Buckeye 2.5 EV went 307.7 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats on 8/27/2010.
The Ford J4 factory cars at LeMans in 1965 was about 230 mph down the front straightaway. A J Foyt and Andretti were the drivers.
Actually this value depends on the season and on the car. In the previous season 2010 the top cars (Ferrari, Red Bull, and McLaren) had top speeds in excess of 320 kmph. The midfield cars were a bit slower than this and the tail end teams (new teams) like Hispania, lotus and virgin were much slower …and were around 300 kmph range. (MORE)
The top speeds reached during the F1 2010 season were in the range of 320 kmph
The speed of an f1 car depends on many things. It's engine capacity, gear shift ratio, aerodynamic efficiency of the car body etc. Since different f1 cars are made by different teams, they don't essentially have the same features. So cars from one manufacturer is faster than the other. Driver tal…ent is also equally important. Two drivers, given the same car may drive at different speeds (MORE)

An electronic measurement device, usually deployed at the fastest parts of the circuit, to indicate the (maximum) speed the driver is achieving.
Its the spoiler and the light carbon fiber body. Also the gas tanks are small and light too like a plastic grocery bag. They are very light and agile race cars that can easily do over 200 I go to the grand prix
Honda BAR went 257mph at Bonneville salt flats, but the actual race record is around 230mph Monza.
The efficiency of an engine depends on the quality of the fuel that is injected into it. This is the case with all engines. For example, running a sports car on regular unleaded petrol will effect its efficiency, and by extension, its speed. Cars with higher performance engines (such as F1) normally… have much higher RPMs, and therefore potentially higher power. Hope this helps Feel free to clarify this answer (MORE)
The fastest speed of cable cars were produced by Aerial Tram andGondola, which has maximum speeds of 12.5m/s (45km/h) and 8.5m/s(30km/h) respectively.
Honda F1 car set a land speed record 2way average at Bonneville at 397km/h or aprox. 247mph. It did top out at 413km/h oneway.
Varies by what engine era. V10, V8 or the new V6 turbo. Like witany other F1 car, it is down to set up and tyres. Typical top speedof the V6 engine is about 210 based on the circuits in F1 calendar.The maxium top speed is 249 mph with FIA regulations of the year itwas done or 257mph based upon set u…p for pure speed and minimumdownforce.
