What is the most powerful (peak hp) car ever produced in mass quantity (over 50 cars) in the world?
I would guess the Bugatti will take that title, but its not in production (is it?)

Well there were 100 McLaren F1s made and they have 627HP stock..... I don't think anything has ever beaten that as a production car.

Re: Most powerful production car ever? (QkShift)

ok........ supercars.net shows
clk-gtr as 25 produced making 612hp. I thought they had to build 100 to meet the lemans production rules....oh well.
but how about the Dauer 962, yes only 10 were made but at 730hp!
Over 50 built would probably go to the M F1 then.....

Did the TVR Speed 12 ever get produced? That had an 800hp V12...

I don't know how many were produced, but this Koenig F50 pumped out 830 or so hp.

I'm pretty sure a production car (maybe by an aftermarket company) hit 1000 hp. But I can't remember.

Production = going to a dealership and buying one stock.
No trips to the tuner allowed.

Koenig built a Testarossa with 2 turbos and 1 supercharger that put out 800hp. They also built a twin turbo Testarossa with 1,000hp. But again, these are just modified production cars.

Unless there is some wacky homologated Group B rally car out there that I can't think of, I would say that the McLaren F1 currently takes the trophy.

I know that Germany considers RUF an independent auto manufacturer

Of course not, the 1.8T is exempt from such nonsense rules.[HR][/HR]​
Well than we have a winner because we all know there is nothing has more HP than a chipped 1.8T.
A273 + (RT534 - C/12) = Z where Z is the wheel HP of a chipped 1.8T

What about the Vigen or that one British supercar that I can never remember the name of? It was supposed to put out around 1000 hp.

S2000..... on a per liter basis, for a normally aspirated, mass-produced car.
