What are the 5 Fastest Cars in the World?

Updated on November 12, 2015

What are the five fastest cars in the world in 2012?

Ever wondered what the gas mileage of the fastest cars in the world would be? Ha! Of COURSE not, you want to know how many horses are rumbling under the hood of these transformer look alike, badass cars that should be only driven on the Autobahn.

So what do you think the fastest car in the world is? Lamborghini? How bout a Ferrari? Aston Martin? Sadly none of those iconic brands even made the top five.

These aren't just luxury cars, these are SuperCars, with a capital S and capital C. They reek of testosterone and steak stuffed with bacon. You won't find any faster cars in the world than these five. If you don't I sure as hell want to know what kind of demon mobile got lose to go faster than 267 miles per hour. Ha!

Enjoy.

5. Porsche 9ff GT9-R

If you think this looks like Arnold Schwarzenegger's Porsche then you'd be right (not actually Arnold's but you know what I mean). It'll go 0 to 60 miles per hour in 2.9 seconds flat. Based some what on the Porsche 911, the GT9-R is put together by the German tuning company 9ff (and what a 9ff they did!). They use an extensively modified 4.0 liter twin-turbo engine that produces 973 horse power.

How fast does she go?

They say it's capable of reaching a top speed of 257 mile per hour.

How much does this gem cost?

It starts around $695,000. Not bad at all when you compare some of the disgustingly beastly cars below.

4. SSC Ultimate Aero

The Ultimate Aero, manufactured by SSC North America (it used to be Shelby SuperCars) at one time this was the fastest production car in the world at a top speed of 257 mile per hour. When Bugatti's Veyron came out and in 2011 the Koenigsegg Agera R, both cars were mildly faster than the Ultimate Aero. Not that ultimate anymore I guess. Fourth ain't bad though.

Our third place loser still has quite the manly parts under the hood; a twin-turbo V8 Engine producing 1287 horse power. And she still does 0 to 60 mile per hour in 2.78 seconds. Yup, you might actually shat yourself.

How much does it cost?

A complete bargain starting around $650,000

3. Koenigsegg Agera R

Koenigsegg Agera R, say that five times over. A Swedish car manufacturer, Koenigsegg was only founded in 1994 and produced it's first super car in 2002. That's what Koenigsegg does, build super cars. The Agera R goes from 0 to 60 mile per hour in 2.9 seconds. They use the engine they developed in house, a 5.0-litre twin-turbo-charged V8 engine that produces 1,140 horsepower.

What's the top speed? The company claims the 2013 models will hit 273 miles per hour.

How much does it cost?

The price hasn't been announced yet but experts are speculating around $1.6 million. Yeah, just chump change hey?

2. Hennessey Venom GT

The second fastest car in the world as of 2012 is the Hennessey Venom GT. Speed Racers weekend car, the Venom GT goes an incredible 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, that'll blow your hair back. What's under the hood? A 6.2-liter turbocharged V8 with 1,200 horsepower. 1200 thoroughbred horses that like to go fast.

So how much do the Venom GT cost? A cool $1 million. Sounds like a car for Dr. Evil (get it? one MILLION dollars! No? Nevermind). This rocket on wheel will hit a top speed of 260 mile per hour on a good day (from the company, they say it can go 275 but hasn't been tested and actually hit 275). 260 is nothing to shake a stick at and good enough for our number two spot.

1. Bugatti Veyron

This beast is the fastest car in the world. What a title, verified by several sources, the Bugatti Veyron is the fastest car in the world. Pushing an enormous 1,183 horsepower (870 kW; 1,167 bhp) this is a special version of the Veyron boosting the horsepower and includes an advanced aerodynamics package. It can hit a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph), which makes it the fastest road car in production. Of course for reason unknowns to the Ricky Bobby inside us all, it's electronically limited to 415 km/h (258 mph) just to protect the tires from disintegrating, yeah that's right, you can tell people at parties that your car has to limit it's speed electronically because the tires at one point will just disintegrate. Wow.

So how much does it cost? The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport costs 1.7 million GBP ($2.66 million). So if you have a cool $2.66 million sitting around you better hurry up, only 30 of them will be made. You're guaranteed to be the one who has the faster car on the block if you invest in this ridiculous car on steroids.
