Top 10 Fastest Cars in the World

We have heard of cartoon characters such as Speedy Gonzales and the Road Runner, but did you know that the top 10 fastest cars in the world contain some vehicles that are pretty damn quick as well. They zip down the road with style and sophistication and make the crowds on the sidelines feel left out from the thrill of the chase. So here we present before you these cars from the fastest to the fastest in that ascending order:

10. Lamborghini Aventador – 217 mph

A sports car with a mid-sized engine, it is an Italian product of beauty and boldness. This car was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show about seven years ago. Two years ago, this car had 5000 units churned out of the parent company’s factories. Keeping with the traditional image of Italian culture, this vehicle is named after a fighting bull. It is a two-seater. Also, it has a 7 speed ISR semi-automatic transmission system. The topmost speed is 217 mph.

9. Ferrari LaFerrari – 217 mph

It happens to be a limited production hybrid sports car that is the definitive and categorical vehicle that also is quite superspeedy. This roadster was the costliest of cars that got auctioned off last year. The rate was $7 million. It is a two-door car and has a special powertrain to boot. The top speed is 217 mph.

8. Aston Martin One-77 – 220 mph

A two-door, two-seater, this is a British beauty. The first time, it was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show about a decade ago. A carbon fiber monocoque chassis exists in the context of this car. It also has a manually created aluminum body. The torque amounts to 553 pound-feet. The engine is the most powerful of its salient features. The top speed is 220 mph.

7. Noble M600 – 225 mph

A car that is hand-built, it is composed of stainless steel and carbon fiber. Also, a twin-turbocharged V8 engine lies beneath the bonnet. It costs approximately $450,000 in the US of A. There is even a left-hand model which costs a whole lot more than the nominal price. This car has a six-speed manual transmission. Its topmost speed is 225 miles per hour.

6. Pagani Huayra – 230 mph

This car is one that hypnotizes many. It is a novel branded vehicle from Italy. The car enthusiasts are falling head over heels in order to own one. One among the top ten, it sports a twin turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine. The total horsepower amounts to 730. As for the torque, it reaches 738 pounds-feet. Going up to 230 mph, it is a muscle monster vehicle on the road.

5. McLaren F1 – 240.1 mph

This is not just an ordinary speedster. Having a carbon fiber framework, its engine is partially gold-plated and thus the 6.1 liter BMW M V12 makes this a cool and classic car. Much earlier than Ferrari and Porsche presented any competition, McLaren was tearing up the F1 racing track. The first production car which was a racer had professional engineers behind it. It was not a novice effort. The F1 is known to have set a record in the mid-90s on the Le Mans racing track as well. Its top speed is 240.1 mph.

4. SSC Ultimate Aero – 256.14 mph

The acronym SSC stands for Shelby SuperCars. This used to be the speediest production car in the world once upon a time. That is not so anymore. Reaching a topmost speed of 256 mph about a decade ago, it narrowly defeated the Veyron. All this is thanks to a 6.3-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine. It pumps out 1287 hp. Besides all this, there are no driver assistance facilities thereby making driving this car a raw and realistic experience in itself. Its top speed is 256.14 mph.

3. Hennessey Venom GT – 270.4 mph

This is a wonderful car which achieved a 270.4 mph topmost speed at the Kennedy Space Center about four years ago. The record was made in a unidirectional manner though. The problem is that to be legit, a lap or two in each direction needs to be covered on the racing track. It may not exactly be a production car since it has been crafted manually. The Guinness Book of World Records, however, refused to pay tribute to this car as the fastest in the world so it is not at the top of the list.

2. Bugatti Veyron Super Sport – 268 mph

VW bought the Bugatti brand and the rest is history. It went on to manufacture the second fastest car in the world. Bearing a price of $1.7 million, its quad-turbocharged W16 engine lends it 1000 hp. The Veyron Super Sport is quite a rejoinder by VW to other cars. The various aerodynamic features allow this vehicle to excel even more so as regards its speedy nature. The topmost speed is 268 mph on the test track that VW has specially created for this express purpose.

1. Koenigsegg Agera RS – 301 mph

The specifications of this roadster are such that it lies below the Hennessey Venom F5. Yet it is the fastest of them all and is a winner that takes it all. The topmost speed is 301 mph. It buries the competition hands down. This car not only takes the cake when it comes to speed, it is actually meant for adrenaline junkies who cannot get enough of the exciting feeling that accompanies zooming down the racing track.

So with that, we have come to the end of the list of speediest cars in the world. They include some pretty fast models which will surely spice up the dull and boring lives of many postmodern citizens with some cash and a whole lot of curiosity. Thus these top 10 fastest cars in the world make the global village a more interesting place to live in.
