Here are 11 of the most fastest cars in the world

Updated on August 16, 2022 14:59 PM by Dhinesh

The 1894 Benz Velo, which could reach a top speed of only 12 mph, was the first mass-produced vehicle to be measured at speed. Since then, there aren't many confirmed records, however, in or around 1950, the Jaguar XK120 achieved a production car speed record of 124.6 mph (not to be confused with the tuned prototype that managed to hit 133 mph) After this, conducting one's top speed test for car periodicals turned to become a fad.

Car & Driver even evaluated the venerable McLaren F1, and in 2005 we received our first official government speed record, set by the Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 and confirmed by German inspection officials. Only a few vehicles have come close to breaking the record since the official challenge between manufacturers began at that exact moment.

Top speed, the most irrational, no holds barred, balls-to-the-wall stat a supercar can have, is the best overall rating element. Massive amounts of engineering brilliance are required to create pieces of metal (and carbon fiber) that can drive themselves swiftly and safely down a strip of pavement without disintegrating.

The top 11 fastest cars in the world are covered on this list, which is arranged in order of speed.

Bugatti Veyron: 253.8 MPH

The regular Veyron, the fourth Bugatti on our list, was the first mass-produced vehicle to achieve 250 mph. And it did it in 2005 when it ended McLaren's illustrious record set in the F1 that year. On April 19, 2005, the Veyron, powered by an early 8.0-liter W-16, reached a top speed of 253.8 mph. Its record stood for two years before the SuperSport model and then the Chiron, its replacement, broke it.

This Bugatti is the only one on our list with less than 1,000 horsepower. 987 horsepower and 922 pound-feet of torque are produced by the W-16 engine that propelled the original Veyron.

SSC Ultimate Aero: 256 MPH

The Ultimate Aero briefly surpassed the Bugatti Veyron's record. Before the Veyron Super Sport showed up to get it. The vehicle's twin-turbo version was utilized by SSC to set its record in 2007. Somewhere in West Richland, The Ultimate Aero reached a high speed of 256.1 mph, and it kept that record until 2010. After numerous limited-edition iterations, the Ultimate Aero was terminated in 2013.

The Tuatara, a new contender for the title of the fastest production car in the world, is currently being developed by SSC. The record car had 1,183 horsepower and 1,094 pound-feet of torque, but SSC increased power to 1,300 horses after manufacture. In addition, the original 6.3-liter V-8 engine was changed for a 6.9-liter unit.

Agera RS:260 MPH

The Agera R isn't too far behind the Agera RS, which might be the fastest car in its class. The iconic 5.0-liter V-8 engine from the firm, with a maximum output of 1,124 horsepower and 885 pound-feet of torque, was installed in the 2011–2014 Agera R. A few production car records were set in 2011 by the Swedish company with this vehicle, but the Agera RS subsequently surpassed them.

The Agera R reached a top speed of 260 mph, which was almost as fast as the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, while not breaking any records. By meeting this standard, it moves up to the fifth spot on our ranking and becomes the second Koenigsegg to crack the top 10.

Bugatti Chiron: 261 MPH

One of the four Bugattis that made our list was the basic Chiron. The quad-turbo W-16 engine was carried over into the Chiron, which was unveiled in 2016 to replace the Veyron. However, output was increased to 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque.

Compared to the Veyron Super Sport, the Chiron's top speed is limited to 261 mph. With a top speed of almost 300 mph, the Chiron Super Sport tops the list, so we know there is plenty of power available.

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport: 268 MPH

Despite being 16 years old as of 2021, the Bugatti Veyron is still one of the fastest cars ever produced. Since Bugatti set the record in 2010, the Veyron's top speed of 267.8 mph places it in fourth place. This level was achieved utilizing a reinforced Veyron Super Sport model.

To commemorate the occasion, Bugatti produced a limited run of 30 automobiles known as the World Record Edition; however, these cars are only capable of 258 mph to protect the tires. The 8.0-liter W-16 engine of the Super Sport was also the Veyron's most potent model, producing 1,184 horsepower—197 more than the standard model.

Hennessey Venom GT: 270 MPH

2011 saw the release of the Venom GT, which was produced up until 2017. Despite the apparent length of the run, only 13 cars were produced. The heavily modified Venom GT, which is based on the Lotus Exige, has a twin-turbo, 7.0-liter V-8 engine under the hood. The engine produces up to 1,244 horsepower and 1,155 pound-feet of torque and is based on General Motors' LS7 V-8.

In February 2014, the Venom GT reached its peak speed of 270.4 mph on the shuttle landing strip at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Despite exceeding the world record at the time, Hennessey's single-direction run prevented it from being entered into the Guinness Book of Records.

Koenigsegg Agera RS: 278 MPH

When Koenigsegg reached an average speed of 277.9 mph in November 2017, the Agera RS, the most potent model of the Agera, overtook it as the fastest car in the world. The Agera RS still retains additional records, such as those for 0 to 200 mph acceleration, 200 mph braking, and 0 to 200 mph and back to complete stop, even though the record was beaten in less than two years.

There were only 25 manufactured in all, but Koenigsegg, unlike Bugatti, did not produce a limited-edition Agera RS to honor the record.

SSC Tuatara: 295 MPH

Top speed records frequently spark debate, especially when it comes to breaking the 300 mph mark, which used to be a magical and unattainable goal. According to reports, the SSC Tuatara was the world's fastest car in October 2020 when it purportedly hit a high speed of 331 mph. What would have been a record-breaking performance was simply impossible to verify once people started pointing out flaws in the movies within hours. SSC made another effort to prove that the SSC Tuatara is the fastest car on the entire planet.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS was knocked out of second place and the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ became the world's fastest car as a result of that second effort, which sadly wasn't as successful as the first. Although there have been many disputes in the past regarding the SSC Tuatara's top speed, it appears that we have finally resolved them. The company decided to put all doubts to rest by attempting one final run.

It is an improvement over the 282.6 mph, even though it isn't a run of 316 mph or even above 300 mph. The Tuatara surpassed its speed record and rose to third place on this list of the world's fastest cars when it achieved 295 mph.

Bugatti Chiron Super Sports 300+: 304 MPH

With a top speed of about 261 mph, the ordinary Bugatti Chiron is already one of the fastest cars in the world. However, the French company wanted to break the existing record, so it developed a vehicle that was even more powerful. The Centodieci's engine was modified by Bugatti to produce 1,578 horsepower (99 more than the Chiron's standard rating), the transmission's gear ratios were lengthened, and the car's aerodynamics were redesigned to add about 10 inches to its length. On August 2, the modified vehicle reached a top speed of 304.7 mph. To commemorate the occasion, Bugatti is producing the Chiron Super Sport 300+, a production version based on the prototype. There are only 30 of these cars in existence, which is enough for the Guinness Book of Records to certify the speed record.

Hennessey Venom F5:311 MPH

Hennessey is known for its wild builds, so the Texas-based tuner wanted to try his hand at building a vehicle from the ground up. In 2011, it introduced the Venom GT, which was produced until 2017 but of which only 17 were made.

However, it wasn't until 2016 that we learned Hennessey was developing a model to replace the GT that would be even better. In all honesty, the replacement wasn't a letdown. The fastest car, known as the Venom F5, had a brand-new V-8 engine that produced over 1,800 horsepower and nearly 1,200 pound-feet of torque.

A seven-speed automatic was used to transfer all of the power to the rear wheels. The tuner-automaker boasts that the Venom F5 has a top speed of 311 mph and can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds. Every run has seen improvement, with the most recent one at NASA's runway in Florida reaching 271.6 mph.

We won't rule it out just yet, either, as Hennessey still has work to do to accomplish its 311 mph objective. Do you anticipate the Hennessey Venom F5 will surpass the 311 mph mark?

Koenigsegg Jesko Abolut: 330 MPH

When you thought the Jesko was the Swedish automaker's pinnacle creation, it decided to create a hyper version of the supercar with the suffix "Absolut." To make the Jesko Absolut "unbelievably fast," the manufacturer worked on its aerodynamics and high-speed road characteristics before it was unveiled in 2020.

Due to modifications including an enlarged rear hood, covered rear wheels, and a lowered suspension, it sports a drag coefficient of just 0.278. While the front hood air ducts are likewise closed, it is missing the enormous rear wings and the front wheel louvers. The $2.8 million, 1,600-horsepower Absolut Jesko has a top speed of 330 mph. This is a theoretical top speed, and the car hasn't reached it yet, it should be mentioned.

Since the prototype was taken out of the oven in May 2022, we may presumably expect to see it in the open soon. All things considered, if this ends up being another Tuatara-style disaster, we will undoubtedly be dissatisfied. However, for the time being, we'll accept Koenigsegg's claim that it is the world's fastest car.
