Highest revving cars

Top 40 cars with highest revving engines. Updated August 2022.

Power is product of torque and crankshaft rotation speed. Small engines can not produce high torque and need to achieve high power by increasing rotation speed.

Motorcycle and race car engines are common examples of high RPM engine designs, and truck, train or marine diesel engines are low RPM engines which produce power via high torque.

High revving lightweight engines are desirable for track oriented supercars because they reduce overall vehicle weight and allow for lower center of gravity and better weight distribution.

Following list shows RPM at which engines are producing maximum power. This is not to be confused with "maximum RPM" or "redline RPM" which are even higher.
