Highest Revving Production Cars!!!
We love low-end torque, but there’s something undeniably fantastic about a production car that screams like a race car. These are some of the highest Revving production cars ever built. Coincidentally, these are also some of our favorite cars ever built:
9. Honda Civic Type R (FD2) – 8600-rpm:
Reflecting its early roots as a motorcycle manufacturer, Honda were the kings of the high-revving four-cylinder. The previous generation Civic Type R remains the highest revving Civic, with an 8600-rpm redline in JDM trim. Now that it has joined the modern era and embraced turbocharging in a big way, the days of 8000-rpm Hondas are probably over. Don’t be sad they’re over; be glad they happened.
8. Audi R8 V10 (First Generation) – 8700 RPM:
The current R8 is a delightful screamer with its 8500-rpm redline, but the first V10-powered R8 has it beat by a nose. Its 5.2-liter V10 redlined at 8700-rpm and loved to be hammered on. Interestingly, this R8 revved higher than its close relative, the Lamborghini Gallardo.
