Top 50: Fastest Cars

Updated on February 15, 2009

Introduction

As humans, we have a fascination with speed. There's something hard wired into our brain to react to adrenaline, and we all know how much adrenaline is dumped into out system when we go fast.

Over the last 100 years, we've gone from very slow, to very fast, and every few years it seems, a new King of the production fast cars comes along. More recently there have been so many new "hyper-cars" that we often don't realise its faster. Take the Bugatti Veyron for example. This is one fast fast car, and many believe it to be the worlds fastest production car. That however is wrong.

Take a look through the list to see where your favourite Hyper-cars come.

This list does not currently feature the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (SS) due to the fact that it is currently not in production. When it goes into production in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2011 the list will be updated but until then, it's not a production car and therefore doesn't make it on to the list.

The Fastest Car In The World Is....

So we've gone through the top 49, and here is the fastest car in the world, the Shelby Super Cars (SSC) Ultimate Aero. The 1287 hp V8 powers this carbon fibre clad "Hyper-car" all the way to 257mph! It gets to 60 mph in 2.78 seconds, and will power it's way down a 1/4 mile strip in 9.9 seconds. This is one FAST car!

Interesting to know that SSC are working on (and will be producing) the Ultimate Aero EV. This will be the first 200mph+ electric car powered by a single 500bhp electric motor. It's worth mentioning that SSC are playing around with bolting 2 of their 500bhp motors together for a 100hp electric Hyper-car. Who says you can't have an economical Hypercar?

      Check out the Koenigsegg Agera R road car from Swedish manufacturer Agera R.

      Features a 1,124bhp twin-turbocharged V8 engine and a reputed mind-blowing 273mph top speed with a 0-62mph sprint of just 2.8 seconds.

      A bit steep at £1.1 million though lol!

      Great Hub; enjoyed your write-up.

      The BMW M5 is limited to 155 mph and if you took the limiter of the M5

      yes it will go up to 205 mph but again it is limited by the law at 155 mph. And also the list is wrong about the Porsche 9ff it is actually 257 mph tying with the SSC ultimate aero;

      My favourite car on that list is the Audi R8 V10 this to all of you people willing to by it, the price is £99,500 have fun.

      What about the porche 959 which did 198 full throttle and was the fastest production car for a while as well as most technologically advanced of its time and has history with the ferrari f40 by the way on the list where the reason to the f40s existence was in retaliation to porche for the 959 being created with ferrari saying porche get back in your box, know your place. These cars were said to be milestones in the world of supercharged cars all of which happening in a period of two years between 1985 and 1987.
