Top 10 Fastest Cars in the World Today
 
 

We are talking street cars here. What are the fastest rides you can get if money is not a problemo. You can dazzle German Police on the German Autobahn with a top speed of 268mph in a Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 Super Sport.

 

There are so many measures to evaluate a car like price, fuel economy and durability, but the most common question among the car enthusiasts is “How fast is it?” And to answer this we have done a lot of research and made a list of 10 fastest cars of the world, however it was not easy to find cars with a top speed of 200 miles or more per hour. These cars are not only super fast but also very expensive too because to achieve such high speeds a car need more power and dynamic body style. These all cars are production versions, we have not included the cars, which are either a prototype or not available on mass scale and limited to a small number. As the half of the year has been passed, so, our list of top tens include the cars which are already there and some are ready to launch by 2013.
