Horsepower only shows one side of the story when it comes to a car’s speed – if you really want to know how fast a car is check out the weight-to-power ratio. Just like golf, lowest number wins.
Following are the top 10 Production Cars with the Best Power to Weight Ratio:
10. Pagani Huayra: 4.14 lbs/hp
2980 lbs : Weight
740 hp : Power
If this list is starting with a wild 740 hp Pagani you know it’s going to be interesting. The Huayra is staggeringly light for a car with a V12.
9. Porsche 918 Spyder Weissach Package: 4.08 lbs/hp
3616 lbs : Weight
887 hp : Power
The 918 barely edges out the Huayra, but only if equipped with the stripped out Weissach Package, otherwise the Pagani would just have it.
