TOP 1: Hennessey Venom F5: 301 MPH The Venom F5 beats the previous top speed by more than a school zone speed limit, with a claimed top speed of 301 mph. Carbon fiber chassis and bolted to a 1,600hp 7.4-liter twin- Turbo V8. The results are absolutely amazing as the car was able to go from 0 to 249 at 0 mph in less than 30 seconds overall.
It’s the fastest car in the world, but Guinness hasn’t confirmed it yet TOP 2: KOENIGSEGG AGERA RS: 278 MPHagera RS is the true king of speed. 27119 mph in the second, a 277.9 mph average. TOP 3: HENNESSEY VENOM GT: 270 MPH Hennessey recorded a 270.4 mph run at Kennedy Space Center in 2014, but only in one direction.
Record attempts generally require one run in each direction to be considered legitimate and average wind conditions are taken into account. World Records has yet to recognize Hennessey’s Monster as the world’s fastest car. TOP 4: BUGATTI CHIRON: 261 MPH No list is complete without an iconic Bugatti Performance Car.
The Veyron was a spectacular feat of engineering, a supercar whose performance was so fantastic. After 10 years of production, the Volkswagen Group presented the successor to the Veyron, the Bugatti Chiron. When it comes to super sports cars, the Chiron is king.
TOP 5: BUGATTI VEYRON SUPER SPORT: 268 MPH When Volkswagen bought the brand from Bugatti, it had one goal: to build the fastest car in the world. That goal was achieved by the original Veyron, priced at $1.7 million and a 1,000-horsepower quad. supercharged W16 engine. The SSC Ultimate Aero soon dethroned the Veyron, so Bugatti returned with the Veyron Super Sport.
That pace brings a staggering 1,200 horsepower and various aerodynamic tweaks designed to help gain a few extra miles per hour. The Veyron Super Car was once recorded by the Guinness Book of World Records as the second fastest car in the world with a top speed of 268 6mph recorded at the Volkswagen race track. TOP 6: SCC ULTIMATE AERO: 256 MPH Helby Super Cars had nothing to do with the fame of Cobra’s Carroll Shelby, but Ultimate Aero was the fastest automaker in the world today.
TOP 7: TESLA ROADSTER: 250 MPH The original version of the Tesla Roadster was indeed a high-performance car, based primarily on the Lotus Elise, and while its performance was certainly impressive, it’s best known for making Tesla a legitimate player in the automotive world. The new Roadster is something completely different. This second generation roadster boasts the most impressive spec sheet of any EV type: 0-60mph in 1.9 seconds, 0-100mph in 4.TOP 8: SALEEN S7 TWIN TURBO: 248 MPH The Saleen S7 is iconic among certain performance junkies: rare and exotic styling, rare performance and increased tuning potential, to name a few. But much of the vehicle’s appeal is actually historic. Produced between 2000 and 2009, the S7 was America’s first mid-engine supercar. The vehicle could reach 60 miles per hour in just 2.8 seconds and produces 750 horsepower before crushing the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds. Its most amazing stat is its top speed of 248 mph, making it one of the fastest cars ever paved. TOP 9: KONIGSEGG CCR: 242 MPH The Swedish super sports car manufacturer Koenigsegg briefly held the title of “world’s fastest”. His CCR in 2005 reached 242 mph at the Nardo Ring in Italy. Despite his impressive stats, CCR’s moment in the spotlight was as brief as his claim to the world. The CCX soon replaced it, then the current Agera. TOP 10: MCLAREN F1: 241 MPHThe Mclaren F1 is more than just the fastest car in the world. With its carbon fiber body, gold-plated engine compartment, 6.1-liter BMW M V12 and central driver’s seat, it could be the coolest car ever made. Years before McLaren tried to take on Ferrari and Porsche with the MP4-12C, McLaren was only known in Formula 1 as a successful racing team and in the defunct Can-Am series. His first road car wasn’t exactly an amateur feat, however.
F1 continued its remarkably successful racing career, winning the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans.
