Top 10 Most Powerful Vehicles Available in Canada in 2024

The automotive industry is accompanied by a plethora of data like cargo space, fuel consumption, and the number of USB ports found in a single vehicle. All this to say that numbers hold significant importance as they allow us to compare one model to another without having the chance to drive it. Among all the numbers provided by the industry, horsepower is undoubtedly one of the most important.


Of course, the number of horsepower in a vehicle alone doesn't mean much. 500 horsepower in a gasoline car and 500 horsepower in an electric car are not the same. It all depends on the torque and especially the speed at which this power can be accessed. Additionally, the number of driven wheels and the tire grip must be considered. Finally, the weight of a vehicle can have a massive influence on its performance. However, few people consider all these factors and often get carried away by the horsepower number. That’s why I decided to present to you today the Top 10 most powerful vehicles currently available in Canada in 2024.


10 — McLaren 765 LT 2024 – 755 horsepower


McLaren has managed to build a solid reputation in the exotic car niche for the general public. Therefore, it's no surprise that one of its cars appears on this list. It’s the 765 LT with its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 755 horsepower, nothing less.


9 — Ferrari 812 Superfast 2024 – 789 horsepower


The Ferrari 812 reached the end of its production this year, and its replacement has already been unveiled. Nevertheless, it remains a legendary car for the brand with its 6.5-liter V12 engine producing more than 789 horsepower.


8 — Ferrari 296 2024 – 818 horsepower


We halve the engine compared to the previous car as we find a V6 here. Of course, this one is not alone since it is accompanied by two turbochargers and an electric motor, giving it a combined total power of 818 horsepower. Some might say it's not a real Ferrari because of this, but I can tell you that the model is currently a sensation.


7 — GMC Hummer EV SUV 2024 – 830 horsepower


SUVs are becoming increasingly powerful, and there are more than one on this list. The GMC Hummer EV SUV is just entering the market. Remarkably, the American manufacturer's SUV boasts a power of 830 horsepower in its ultimate configuration.


6 — Pagani Utopia 2024 – 852 horsepower


This car lives up to its name as I have yet to see one on Quebec roads. Nonetheless, it is theoretically possible to purchase the model in Canada.


5 — GMC Hummer EV 2024 — 1000 horsepower


A few years ago, it would have been unimaginable for a vehicle to exceed 1000 horsepower on this list. Today, we find ourselves in the 5th position with such power, and it doesn’t end there. The vehicle boasting this power is not a high-level super sports car but rather a pickup truck.


4 — Lamborghini Revuelto 2024 - 1001 horsepower


The Lamborghini Aventador was one of the most iconic cars of its generation, which is why the Italian manufacturer went all out with its replacement. The Revuelto is equipped with a 6.5-liter V12 engine and three electric motors for a total power of over 1001 horsepower.


3 — Ferrari SF90 2024 – 1015 horsepower


I hope you are not surprised to see a third Ferrari in this Top 10. We complete the trio with a V8 and an electric motor this time, providing a combined power of 1015 horsepower. It is currently one of the brand’s most desirable cars.


2 — Tesla Model S/Tesla Model X 2024 - 1020 horsepower


I decided to combine the Tesla Model S and Model X under the same number since they essentially use the same mechanics. 1020 horsepower is enormous, even if we’re talking about electric power. This allows the Model S sedan to complete the 0-100 km/h sprint in less than 1.99 seconds.


1 — Lucid Air 2024 — 1234 horsepower


One might have imagined the most powerful car available in Canada as an exotic model that resembles a fighter jet more than a car. However, it’s quite the opposite as the most powerful car currently available in Canada is also one of the most ordinary and quiet. It’s the Lucid Air, a modern and elegant sedan. The starting price of the electric sedan is $96,800. However, you will need to spend $327,300 to get your hands on its ultimate version, which is surprisingly affordable for a car of this caliber. With a 0-100 km/h time of less than 2.0 seconds and a top speed of 330 km/h, the Lucid Air Sapphire is capable of leaving most sports cars, even the most exotic ones, in the dust.
