Hennessey Venom F5
Hennessey Venom F5 (301 mph) – The Venom F5 may have the most impressive spec sheet of all time. It produces 1,600
horsepower, can go 301 mph, and costs $1.6 million. Nothing will ever be the same.
Koenigsegg Agera RS
Koenigsegg Agera RS (278 mph) – The Agera RS may not have the highest figure on this list, but according to the Guinness
Book of World Records, it’s officially the fastest car in the world. If Hennessey is able to verify its performance claims,
though, Koenigsegg won’t hold that title for long.
Hennessey Venom GT
Hennessey Venom GT (270 mph) – The combination of a Lotus Exige chassis and 1,244-hp 7.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 gives
us the fastest production car in the world. Depending on your definition of “fastest” and “production car,” that is.
Bugatti Chiron (261+ mph) – The Bugatti Veyron was a monumental feat of engineering, a supercar whose performance was so
marvelous, Top Gear presenter James May compared it to the automobile equivalent of the Concorde. After ten years of
production, the Volkswagen Group has unveiled the Veyron’s successor, the Bugatti Chiron.
(250 mph) – Elon Musk has a knack for unleashing surprises, and he did just that when he revealed the
second-generation Roadster after the unveiling of the Tesla Semi. With a claimed top speed of 250 mph, the Roadster is one
of the most impressive cars in the world, electric or not.
Saleen S7 Twin Turbo
Saleen S7 Twin Turbo (248 mph) – Produced from 2000 to 2009, the S7 was America’s first mid-engined supercar. And it’s one
of the best ever made.
Koenigsegg CCR (242 mph) – Swedish supercar builder Koenigsegg briefly held the “world’s fastest” title before being bested
by the original Bugatti Veyron. Its CCR reached 242 mph at Italy’s Nardo Ring in 2005.
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport
Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (268 mph) – When Volkswagen purchased the Bugatti brand, it had one goal: build the fastest
production car in the world. The original Veyron achieved that goal, and with a price tag of $1.7 million and a quad-
turbocharged W16 engine producing 1,000 hp, it also boasted the most superlatives of any production car.
McLaren F1 (241 mph) – The F1 is more than just a former world’s-fastest car. With its carbon-fiber body, gold-lined engine
bay, 6.1-liter BMW M V12, and center driver’s seat, it just might be the coolest car ever made.
SSC Ultimate Aero
SSC Ultimate Aero (256 mph) – Shelby SuperCars (SSC) has nothing to do with Carroll Shelby of Cobra fame, but the Ultimate
Aero hit 256 mph in 2007, beating even the Veyron.
Pagani Huayra BC
Pagani Huayra BC (238 mph) – Lighter and more powerful than the standard Huayra, the BC’s engine produced 789 hp, while
total curb weight was a paltry 2,645 lbs — effectively the same weight as a Civic Coupe with five times the power.
Zenvo ST1 (233 mph) – Assembled in Zealand, the Zenvo ST1 exhibits the height of Danish engineering prowess, as the car
combines a 6.8-liter V8 with both a supercharger and a turbocharger to create 1,104 hp and 1,054 lb-ft.
Noble M600 (225 mph) – The M600 proved incredibly difficult to drive (it had very few electronic driver aids onboard), but
performance spoke for itself — 650 hp, 0 to 60 in 3.0 seconds, and a top speed of 225 mph.
Apollo Arrow (223 mph) – In early 2016, the Apollo Automobil brand rose from the ashes of Gumpert, a lovably unhinged
manufacturer. And even though it’s been given a makeover, underneath the skin the Arrow is as crazy as ever.
Lamborghini Veneno (221 mph) – Sometimes you get what you pay for. The Lamborghini Veneno proves it by appearing on our
Most Expensive Cars list too. That’s right, this $4.5-million supercar is actually a bargain.
