Fastest Cars in the World

by | Dec 21, 2018 | All About Speed

Ever since we were kids, we loved to brag about how far the numbers on the speedometer of the cars go.

Moving into the 21st century, we have gone way past the 110mph era and now let’s see the dream machines that rule the law of physics in the world today. The fastest cars of the word!

1. Hennessey Venom F5 (301 MPH)

The giant tuner company from America is famous for taking dream machines and tuning them to leave the speed of sound behind.

But taking an opposite path, they have announced the Hennessey Venom F5 with a claimed top speed of 301 mph.

Hennessey started with an off the ground new, 2,950-pound carbon fiber chassis and bolting a 7.4-liter twin turbo v8 that can put out an off the charts 1600-hp.

The fruits of this labor is 0 to 249 mph in less than 30 secs which will make it the fastest production car among the fastest cars to ever hit the market!

Hennessey has yet to confirm these figures since customer cars haven’t rolled out yet. But if the promises are kept, this will be the king among the fastest cars in the world!

2. Koenigsegg Agera RS (278 MPH)

The Koenigsegg brand is well known for it’s off the Earth hypercars. The latest egg from the company in Sweden is the KOENIGSEGG AGERA RS.

The current record holder of the fastest production car speed record and new variations rolling out every day, the Koenigsegg Agera RS will comfortably sit on its throne for a very long time.

The company derived 5-liter twin turbo v8 can turn out 1160 hp. Couple that with carbon fiber with aluminum honeycomb chassis, this thing is fast!

On an 11-mile stretch of Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump, the 1,160-hp Swedish supercar hit 284.55 mph during its first run and 271.19 mph during the second, which averages out to 277.9 mph making it the ruler of fastest cars on the market today!

3. Hennessey Venom GT (270 MPH)

Hennessey’s quote of “hold my beer” to Bugatti in 2014 when they tried and succeeded in doing a 270.4-mph run at the Kennedy Space Center.

Although number 3 in the list, the Hennessey Venom GT did not earn a place in the record books due to its low production numbers, a noteworthy car in the list of fastest cars in the world.

4. Bugatti Chiron (261+ MPH)

Through its comfortable decade of the king among hypercars, the Bugatti brand had one goal in mind; to turn out the fastest possible cars in the world!

The new feat of this the Bugatti Chiron has a speedometer that goes up to 300 mph which will make it king among the fastest cars!

Although locked for safety until solid tires are made, customers of this unique car can enjoy speeds up o 261mph. They outdid the Veyron with 1500 hp (500 more) and a ground-up redesign.

Bugatti promises the Chiron is sportier than the Veyron! But we know one thing for sure; it definitely is fast!

5. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (268 MPH)

When Volkswagen acquired the name Bugatti all they wanted was to make the fastest car on the planet. They did that for some time with the original Veyron but was kicked off the titles by America’s SSC Ultimate Aero.

To claim the throne back, Veyron came up with the Bugatti Veyron super sport.

The Veyron super sport has 200 hp more than the original Veyron and is equipped with extra cosmetics to match all the ump!

The new beast made 268 mph, and a made a world record and became the leader among the fastest cars back then!

6. SSC Ultimate Aero (256 MPH)

Briefly dethroning the Veyron as the fastest production car on earth, the SSC Ultimate Aero made a name for itself in the record books.

In 2007, the SSC Ultimate Aero went ahead to claim 256 mph. Shelby SuperCars (SSC) Aero came with a 6.3-liter twin-turbocharged V8 boasting 1287 hp!

It was also true to the blood hypercar with no driver aids whatever. Those who succeeded achieved 256 mph and others a friendly encounter with death!

7. Tesla Roadster (250 MPH)

The first car on our list that’s electric. Tesla claims the fully electric Tesla Roadster will do 250 mph thanks to 200 kWh battery pack.

The roadster comes with an impressive spec sheet of 0 to 60 mph in 1.9 seconds, 0 to 100 mph in 4.2 seconds, and a claimed top speed of 250 mph.

We have yet to see if this promise is delivered when the production cars are ready to be delivered and tested! But undoubtedly one of the fastest cars the planet will see!

8. Saleen S7 Twin Turbo (248 MPH)

Among the petrol heads, the SALEEN S7 TWIN TURBO is a legend!

The insane styling of the cosmetics and the massive 7.0-liter twin turbo V8 750 hp engine was able to rocket the Saleen from 0-60 mph in 2.8 secs and a top speed of 248 mph!

It definitely is one of the fastest cars to walk the face of the earth.

Final Thoughts

So there you go, the fastest production car available on the market up to date.

We don’t want to go further because newcomers such as the McLaren P15 and the Devel 16 are coming 2018!
