This list of the fastest cars can help you give an idea on finding the best sports car for you. In looking for the best production car, make sure that you go for one that satisfies your craving for the fast lane. Take a look at the fastest cars in the world available right now.
Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+
The “fastest car in the world” list would be incomplete without the Bugatti. Similar to its predecessor the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, it has the “standard” Chiron that is said to be a mind-blowing piece of engineering among the fastest cars.
The Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ is a special version of the Chiron Super Sport to create a modified Chiron, becoming the first car to have the top speed record of 300 miles per hour (mph) on the track. The top speed of this production car is capped at 273mph, but racing driver Andy Wallace took a final record of 304.773mph on the Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien track in Germany.
The Chiron Supersport 300+ is a quad-turbo, has an 8-liter and 16-cylinder engine with an aerodynamically-optimized body and extensive weight-saving measures. Only 30 of these will be produced for a price of $3.9 million a piece.
Rimac Automobili boasts its Rimac Nevera to disprove that an electric car is only fast at a certain speed. Nevera has four electric motors that can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in under two seconds and can go to a top speed of 258 mph.
This car is made almost entirely of carbon fibre to make it lightweight. Its interior is also amazing, making it as luxurious as you expect this car to be. The Rimac Never costs $2.5 million.
SSC Ultimate Aero TT
Shelby Supercars (SSC) North America bagged the Guinness World Record for the fastest production car for three years with the 2000 version of the Ultimate Aero TT. This fast car even destroyed the top speed record of the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport of 257 mph. However, the car in question was a 2007 model.
Since then, SSC upgraded the Aero which now includes a twin-turbo 6.3-liter V8 engine making 1,287 horsepower and giving the the car a theoretical top speed of 290 mph.
The SSC Ultimate Aero TT was discontinued in 2013 after several limited-edition models. However, SSC is working on a new contender for the world’s fastest production car – the SSC Tuatara.
The Tuatara has been the talk of the town as one of the fastest-production cars in the world. On October 10, 2020, SSC Tuatara claimed the title of the “world’s fastest production vehicle” by running at an average of 316.11 mph; it also claimed the title for the first production car to break the 500 kph barriers. The record was not official and SSC conducted another run in January 2021. It officially had a record of 282.9 mph.
Tuatara is powered by a twin-turbo 5.9-liter V8 engine producing 1,350 horsepower.
Every fast car fan knows what a McLaren could do. Launched in 2020, the McLaren Speedtail has a jaw-dropping design that has a claimed top speed of 250 mph, which is faster than the legendary McLaren F1. It has a hybrid powertrain with a twin-turbo 4-liter V8 paired with an electric motor to have a 1,035 horsepower output.
The Speedtail is designed to be a “Hyper GT” that is comfortable in everyday driving. However, the Speedtail is still not a street-legal race car in the US, McLaren has proven several times its top speed.
According to McLaren, the test prototype of the Speedtail called the XP2 reportedly hit 250 mph more than 30 times. The test runs were part of the automaker’s testing procedures and were conducted at the Kennedy Space Center runway in Florida.
Hennessey Venom F5
Hennessey Performance Engineering has been modifying their fastest production cars – from Ferrari to Dodge Vipers. The Hennessey Venom F5 has a carbon fiber chassis and is powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V8 good for 1,600 horsepower.
The Venom F5 is the successor to the Venom GT, and it claims to have a top speed of 301 mph, which is set to be the world record of the next fastest-accelerating car in the world. However, Hennessy has yet to prove this claim by doing a full top-speed run.
There are only 24 of these fast cars are being made, priced at $1.9 million.
Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut
This sports car is claimed to be the world’s fastest car and it claims to beat world records with its release. However, Jesko Absolut’s top speed is theoretical and based on calculations by Koenigsegg. However, this Swedish company is confident that Jesko Absolut will perform based on its claims and vows to make another road car than this.
The Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut has a twin-turbo V8 that can generate 1,600 horsepower at a minimum on special E85 fuel. It is also equipped with the proprietary “Light speed transmission,” which is a 9-speed multi-clutch transmission for lightning-fast gear shifts.
The company claims to have projected high speeds. Jesko Absolut is expected to have a top speed of 350 mph. While this is not the official record holder, this is a car to watch out for.
Aston Martin Valkyrie
Among all the fastest cars in the world, Aston Martin Valkyrie is a road car and you can drive it on the street. It was first shown in concept form in 2016, and the first customer car was delivered in early 2022. It showed the technical challenges Aston needs to overcome.
This road car uses a 6.5-litre Cosworth V12 that can produce 1160 horsepower. The Valkyrie has a kerbweight of 1,130 kg and it produces more than 1PS for every kilogram it weighs. Aston Martin Valkyrie is also capable of pushing its speed limit from 0-60mph in around 2.5 seconds.
The Roadster has a 200 kwh battery pack that can provide up to 620 miles of range. It also has three electric motors, propelling this road car to 60 mph in almost 2 seconds. So, the quarter mile is in your rearview in less than 9 seconds.
Another car from the Koenigsegg, the Regera is a Swedish speed car that also comes with a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine mated to three electric motors that produce 1,500 horsepower. It also has a special “Direct Drive” gearbox that is lighter and more efficient than the traditional gearbox in
The company claims that the Regera is designed to be a “luxury Megacar alternative” to its “traditional extreme, light weight, race-like road cars.” It is also made from carbon fibre and Kevlar, weighing the car at around 1600kg.
It’s also claimed to be a record holder that can go from 0 to 249 mph and back to 0 again in 31 seconds. There will only be 80 examples of the Regera and will cost around $1.6 million.
Pagani Huayra R
Pagani is relatively young in the supercar-making industry, yet it has also surprised its audience with its astonishing production cars. Pagani produces high-performing vehicles, and none of its models are slow.
The Huayra R is among the quickest cars Pagani has made. It has a track-only R variant that relies on a 6.0-liter twin-tubo V-12. Its engine comes from AMG which can rev up to 9,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). These features are enough for a top speed of 238 mph.
The Huayra R is mostly made of carbon fibre to keep it lightweight and more rigid. It’s also covered in active aerodynamics to help slip through the air easily.
