Formula 1 racing is a very high-end and expensive endeavor. The cars are considered things of beauty and engineering marvels. Currently, all F1 cars run the same motor - a V6 capable of 850 horsepower at 16,000 rpm!
They may not be the absolute fastest, but add in the cornering ability and braking that can create enough g-force to hurt a driver, and they become automotive marvels.
