SSC Tuatara

Top 10 Fastest Cars In The World (2023)

Zero to 60 is probably the most realistic, everyday performance benchmark, but there’s no better ultimate ranking factor than top speed – the most no holds barred, balls-to-the-wall stat a supercar can have. It takes lots of engineering genius to move so quickly down a strip of pavement without falling apart.

Here is a list of the 10 fastest production cars in the world ranked by top speed. All the cars you would expect are here, ranked from fastest to slowest (though calling any of these slow is blasphemy.) And to clarify, yes, all of these cars are street-legal.

#1: SSC Tuatara

SSC Tuatara

Top Speed: 282.9 mph
Engine: 1,750 horsepower

We’ve been hearing about SSC’s Tuatara since at least 2011. Created by American supercar maker SSC (formerly Shelby SuperCars, no relation to Caroll Shelby), the Tuatara not only beat the next fastest supercar on the list but blew it out of the water (or salt flats, as it were.)

On October 10th, 2020, the SSC Tuatara managed to claim the title of the world’s fastest production vehicle by clocking an average run of 316.11 mph (508.73 kph), also claiming the title for the first production car to break the 500 kph barrier. But that record wasn’t official, apparently, so they went back and did another run in January 2021, this time officially grabbing the record at 282.9 mph.

The SSC Tuatara is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.9-liter V8 producing 1,350 horsepower using 91 octane gas and 1,750 horses if you slip in some E85 juice.

#2: Koenigsegg Agera RS

Koenigsegg Agera RS

Top Speed: 277.87 mph
1,341 horsepower

The Koenigsegg Agera RS is a hybrid of sorts (no, not that kind of hybrid). It’s an Agera R at heart, with some of the advanced tech of the One:1 and some of the Agera S sprinkled in for good measure.

There were only 25 examples of the Agera RS produced. Powered by a 5.0-liter twin-turbo V8, the “normal” Agera RS produces 1,160 horsepower (on regular pump gasoline, mind you). However, 11 lucky owners were able to (theoretically) hit the top speed of 277 due to checking the “1MW” special package when ordering theirs, which increases the ponies to 1,341.

Koenigsegg said goodbye to the Agera in mid-2018 with two final examples named Thor and Väder.

#3: Hennessey Venom GT

Hennessey Venom GT

Top Speed: 270.49 mph
1,244 horsepower

This hypercar from Texas-based Hennessey is an impressive machine, to say the least. Sporting a twin-turbo 7.0-liter V8 producing a massive 1,244 horsepower, the Venom GT beat a world record set by the Koenigsegg Agera R as the fastest accelerating production car in the world when it did a run from zero to 186 mph in 13.63 seconds.

This beast can go from zero to 100 mph in 5.6 seconds (a world record) and hit 200 mph from a stop in only 14.51 seconds (also a world record). Hennessey claims the Venom GT can reach a top speed of 278 mph if given a bit more room to do it. As far as Hennessey goes, all eyes are now on the Venom F5 Revolution, which has the potential to shake things up on this list. 

#4: Bugatti Chiron

2017 Bugatti Chiron

Top Speed: 261 mph
 1,479 horsepower

Bugatti, never one to back down from a top-speed fight, built the Chiron as a successor to the already world-record-breaking Veyron Super Sport (below). The Chiron carries over the same 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine as the Veyron but is modified to produce (quite a bit) more power.

But here’s the interesting part. The top speed of the Bugatti Chiron – 261 mph – is electronically limited due to safety. Simply put, nobody’s built a tire that can handle speeds in excess of 280 mph. Michelin says they’re working on it, but until tire tech can catch up, don’t expect top speeds to go much past 280 mph.

So, how fast can the Chiron go? Nobody knows for sure (or dares try), but the speedometer goes up to 500 km/h (about 311 mph). Since the much less powerful Veyron SS below hit over 268 mph with the speed limiter removed, we’re going to just fudge it a little bit and pretend the Chiron is officially faster.

#5: Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Top Speed: 267.81 mph
1,200 horsepower

To beat SSC’s Ultimate Aero, Bugatti slapped bigger turbos and intercoolers on their previous world-record-holding Veyron to produce a seriously impressive 1,200 horsepower. The Veyron SS still houses the same 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine but with 200 more horsepower. To handle the extra speed and power, Bugatti also had to revise the chassis and suspension.

Only 30 Veyron Super Sport models were produced. Electronically limited to 258 mph for the production cars, Guinness World Records said even though the speed limiter was removed, the top speed was still valid. We just wish they would have let the Chiron above do the same.

#6: SSC Ultimate Aero TT

SSC Ultimate Aero

Top Speed: 256.18 mph
1,183 horsepower

Boutique supercar maker Shelby SuperCars (SSC) unleashed the Ultimate Aero in 2007, destroying the more expensive Bugatti Veyron’s top speed record. The car in question was a 2007 model – since then, SSC has upgraded the Aero to include an all-new twin-turbo V8 engine, producing 1,287 horsepower, giving the car a theoretical top speed of 290 mph.

SSC says given a long enough road, they could get the car up to 270 mph. That would break the Veyron’s record again, so let’s see if they ever get around to it.

#7: Koenigsegg CCXR

Koenigsegg CCXR Edition

Top Speed: 249 mph
1,004 horsepower

The Koenigsegg CCXR is a more “eco-friendly” version of the CCX. Powered by the same 4.7-liter twin-supercharged V8 engine as the CCX, it was modified to run on E85 gasoline, bringing the horsepower output up from 795 to a whopping 1,004.

Although the Koenigsegg CCR broke the top speed record in 2005 on a circular track, the updated CCXR has a better engine, aerodynamics, and, well, pretty much everything else. We would love to see the Swedish company get this out on the VW test track, which is the same track on which the Veyron was tested (and a straight line, not a circle.)

#8: Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo

Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo

Top Speed: 248 mph
750 horsepower

Saleen’s first car was not based on an existing model, but the S7 supercar grabbed a lot of attention when it was released in 2000. An updated Twin-Turbo model followed shortly afterward, providing 750 horsepower and a 248 mph top speed. Saleen offered a competition package increasing horsepower to 1,000, which brings the top speed up to a rumored 260 mph.

Interest has dropped for the S7, but if they can come back and claim a top speed close to Bugatti, Hennessey, or SSC, we might see some more of Saleen’s supercar in the future. There was the ’80’s retro-cool Saleen S5S Raptor Concept that came out in 2008 but that never saw the light of day.

#9: McLaren F1

1995 McLaren F1 1

Top Speed: 240.14
618 horsepower

The McLaren F1 first appeared in 1993, and it’s still one of the fastest cars in the world. It’s also one of the most sought-after. Produced from 1993 to 1998, any F1 will sell today for top dollar, as is evidenced by this 1995 McLaren F1 road car. In August 2021, it set a record auction price of $20.465 million during Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auction.

The amount of “firsts” that McLaren introduced to road cars via the F1 is far too long to list, but suffice it to say, the British company blew everyone else out of the water at the time. With just 64 versions of the road car ever made, only a lucky few will ever have the honor of driving one.

#10: Pagani Huayra

Pagani Huayra

Top Speed: 238 mph
 720 horsepower

The Pagani Zonda is still one of our favorite cars of all time. We are not huge fans of the Huayra’s styling (or name) when compared to the Zonda, but we have to admit it’s an incredible car nonetheless.

The Huayra’s AMG-sourced 6.0-liter twin-turbo V12 produces 720 horsepower. With the help of a seven-speed single-clutch sequential gearbox, the Huayra hits 60 in only 2.8 seconds with a top speed of 238 mph. It won’t be long before Pagani lands on this list again – perhaps higher up – with its new Utopia hypercar

Honodable Mention: Ferrari Enzo

Ferrari Enzo

Top Speed: 221 mph
651 horsepower

Another one of the few naturally-aspirated cars on this list, the Ferrari Enzo is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 producing 651 horsepower. Only 399 Enzos were built for sale, and as usual, all were sold to existing customers via invitation. There was one more Enzo built, but it was donated to the Vatican for charity.

Interestingly, Enzo’s successor – the LaFerrari – is only able to hit an approximately similar top speed despite being significantly more powerful. However, the LaFerrari is quicker, with a zero to 62 mph time of 2.4 seconds, compared to the Enzo’s time of 3.2 seconds.

How Top Speed Is Calculated

Considering how coveted the “Fastest Car in the World” title is, it’s no surprise there’s a pretty rigorous process involved to get there, at least if you want to be official. The de facto list is from Guinness World Records, which has some specific requirements in place to be considered.

First, the test needs to be witnessed by an independent third party. Next, the car makes its first run at whatever location is chosen for the test. Preferably somewhere with a long, flat road, such as VW’s private Ehra-Lessien test track in Northern Germany. This track has an uninterrupted straight for 5.6 miles, which is so long you can’t see the other end due to the curvature of the Earth!

Then, the car makes another top-speed run in the opposite direction because there may be some differences in weather, elevation, or other factors that could alter the measurements in one direction or the other. The average of the two runs is used. For example, if a car hits 220.7 mph in one direction and 219.1 mph in the other, the top speed recorded is 219.9.

    1. the peel p50
      no reverse, no safety, bone hard mean machine
      considering the fact it doesnt go above 60 mph
      its also kinda expensive

      1. The hummer h1 and humvee are the coolest cars in the world. Who likes those disgusting sports cars?

  1. Dude whoever added the Bugati Veryon your wrong the bugati Can go over 402kmh . Its stopped by the speed limit set in the car

  2. course theyre electronically limited… if they werent the engine would overheat and the car would explode…

  3. Can you give us some info on the Lamborghini Concept S, a new prototype, i think if we both try and work on it we can get more info. i already know that it has a V10 303 displacement cu and 500 HP with and 369 Torque with all wheel drive.

  4. hey! u missed out the gumpert apollo, which should be in the 4th or 5th place. also the brabus tkr which supposedly is the fastest car in the world…

  5. Have you ever seen the DEORA II? If not look it up right now, it's this sweet truck that can additionaly come with surfboards secured on the trunk, this truck has a spoiler that goes towards the cabin. My Dad thinks one of these would cost $500,000.00.

    who could afford that?!

  6. the brabus tkr is only supposedly the fastest car in the world, it hasnt actually been tested and proved yet. Whereas the bugatti has been proved to reach its top speed. If i said my car can do 270 mph then that doesnt mean its true, i doubt the brabus will be able to top 250

  7. this the good cars. i like toyota cars. i like nissan cars. i think nissan skyline is fastests car with sunroof and spoiler. 2 liter engine can get chicks.

  8. You guys say the Bugatti can only reach 252 mph but it can actually reach 258 mph if it wasnt electronicly limited. But even if it is limited it can still reach 253 mph!

  9. hehe, you guys are right, the Veyron can go faster than the 252mph given, but we're going on manufacturer specs here, as always. They set the speed limiter to 252mph for a reason, like makof98 said a few comments back.

  10. Hi Z, thanks for the comment. 70mph seems a bit low. While it is true that many police now have rules where they can't chase you if you're going too fast, it varies depending on what region you're in. If them chasing you would be considered too dangerous to civilians around, they won't chase you, but I've been chased while I was going 86 in a 55 before. Nasty fine, btw.

  11. Now let's say you were speeding in your Bugatti – why would the cops need to chase you? They simply look up who in the area owns one (there aren't that many of any of the cars on this list owned in the average neighbourhood) and sit waiting in front of your house until you get home…

  12. DNA: I wrote this article on March 30th 2007; way before the SSC broke the record. I'd like to do an updated list next year.

    Joe: The Dodge Tomahawk is awesome, but: 1. It's not a car, and 2. It's not a production vehicle.

  13. @jeeza: The speed shown in here is being displayed in MILES per hour, not kilometers. 252.2mph is the same as 405.8kph which is the number you are arguing over.

  14. R1: The Ford GT's official top speed (production model) is 205mph, falling in just below the SLR – source

    anthony: Callaway Sledgehammer is not a production model, just like the Lingenfelter Corvette isn't. Please read the article before making judgements like that on the quality of the list. It was well-researched.

  15. @ makof98: Acctually, they’re limited because the tires they come with are not rated for such high speeds. there limited so that the driver doesn’t drive so fast as to have the tires implode on him.

  16. What about the Ultima GTR?

    This is a production car with a top speed of 231mph.

    It also famously holds the world record for a zero-100mph-zero run at 9.4secs, as well as several other records.

  17. This list is completely false! My 1990 Geo Prizm is the fastest car in the world! Get you facts straight, buddy!

  18. Everyone – Last week in DIGG the Gumbert Apollo was named fastest car and it is. i actually think that the Veyron is 3rd fastest now!

  19. The slowest car in the world I believe was the Metropolitan granted you don't include cars that were available before go fast technology was available.

    I think this car had something like a 15 second 0-60 time

  20. Im sorry but the fastest car is the 1972 Voxel Electra with 2,200 HP but if you still doesn't believe me try Barabus TKR

  21. Si: McLaren and MB manufactured this car together, it wasn't outsourced to a third-party.

    The RUF is built from a Porsche by a third-party tuning house, how could you even try and include that one?

    The Ultima GTR is 1.) Built on top of a Chevy, and 2.) Built individually by customers who requested one. Not production.

    However, you're right about the Bugatti. It was a production model, and had a top speed equal to the Carrera GT, and even higher for the SS model. Congrats on pointing out the first qualifying car that I missed.

  22. If you’re talking about cars in ‘production’ you need to remove the Carrera GT and the XJ220. the Lingenfelter is in more of a ‘production’ state than those two

  23. JB: Perhaps we have two different definitions of “production.” While the definition is arguable, “production” cars have to be created and sold by the manufacturer – Strike one against the Lingenfelter. Strike two: the car has to be unmodified by anyone except the manufacturer. The Lingenfelter is extremely modified, and it wasn’t Chevy who did it.

  24. pretty sad really , when you realize the 1970 dodge daytona charger did 200.447 mph in 1970!!! and 3740 lbs almost 2 tons!!

    , doesnt make the bottom 3 look all that technologically advanced

  25. Im sorry but the fastest car is the 1972 Voxel Electra with 2,200 HP but if you still doesn’t believe me try Barabus TKR

    The Voxel Vectra is a one-off (not production,) and the Barabus TKR is not yet in production either

  26. So if your definition of production is unmodified other than by the manufacturer, the McLaren Mercedes SLR is out seeing as the McLaren tuning house does the finishing touches. It also disqualifies the various AMG and Brabus variants that easily top the SLR’s speed. There’s also the RUF Yellow Bird (208MPh), Ultima GTR 640 (231, higher with taller gearing) and the Bugatti EB110 (210, maybe a couple more for the GT, 217 for the crazy SS). All production cars, all faster than the SLR, none on this list. I think this is more like the “Top ten fastest production cars that my mother has heard of”.

  27. Beautiful cars. I'm still in love with the XJ220. 🙂

    >> Dude whoever added the Bugati Veryon your [sic] wrong the bugati Can go over 402kmh . Its stopped by the speed limit set in the car"

    Do the math – 402kph/1.6093 (approx.) = 249.8mph

    So you are correct. The quoted speed of 252 is above 402kph. 🙂

  28. Great List!! I must admit for the money my ZO6 at 184mph is a screaming deal and should be worth at least an asterisk note at the bottom. But I will look forward to your next publication.

  29. Dude Your wrong Bugatti does 208 @ top. And The engine in the ccx already fills its engine bay if they beef it up they'll have to re-build the whole car.

  30. I thought I heard somewhere that the Mutsubishi LAncer was the fastest production car. Though I figured there had to be more to it, anyone heard of this?

    Also, Ruf and SLR are third-party tuners, AMG is part of Benz.

  31. I thought I heard somewhere that the Mutsubishi LAncer was the fastest production car. Though I figured there had to be more to it, anyone heard of this?

    Perhaps in it's class, but I couldn't see it going further than that.

    1. lol, koenigsegg agara R is so much better than the ccx, plus the Agara R is much faster

  32. lookat the acura nsx with the viel body kit and it looks like a ferrari enzo with lambo doors

  33. I'm partial to the SLR overall but I've got to tell you the Saleen runs a close second in my book. I also hear their new turbos are capable of more than twice the boost in production today so expect them to contend in the 260+mph record setting arena.

  34. can someone give me a car as a gift? i am crazy for one 😛

    ….joking. just wanted to say that the bugatti is my favourite one !

  35. What do you think is best overall Ferrari or Lamborghini?

    I read on a book ( published not to long ago) about the Mclaren being the second fastest car in the world with a speed of 249Mphs.

  36. javier: It really depends on your preference and what you're looking for. Personally, my favorite Ferrari is the 360 Spider, and favorite Lambo is the Diablo 6.0 VT. As far as performance though, so far the fastest Ferrari is the FXX Evoluzione, but it's not a road car, just track.

  37. isn’t the Barabus TKR the fastest car in the world

    It's still a concept car, it's not in production.

  38. Good list. I like it. But there are also Weineck Cobra and Barbarus TKR , but these not production cars. On my website there is also a list of 85 fastest cars in the world.

  39. DUUU the slowest car in the world is the toyota corrola!! how many times have you gotten stuck behind those crapy turtles!

  40. Egon, I've heard of the muistibishi lancer, I just can't rember waht I heard, I thout it was supposedly the fastest car in the world

  41. if you make it of 07 then it will be Bugatti,CCX,Chrysler Me 4-12, Mclaren F1,Lambo Reveton and some more cars

  42. hey people, you keep on saying that the bugatti veyron is the fastest car but is it really on roads with lots of corners such as a verry cornerful race track? All I’m saying is it’s a verry heavy car and that means more inertia, can’t that makes it slower on race tracks?

  43. Great List and im tired of people saying the barbarus trk. ITS NOT A PRODUCTION CAR AND ITS NEVER BEEN TESTED. My favorite car on the list is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 and my favorite overall is the Lamborghini Reventon.

  44. Bugatti veryon isn't the fastest car in the world. its SSC Ultimate Aero 257mph made by americans

    1. nope, there are 3, the Koenigsegg agara R at 272, the ssc tuatara at 276, and the henessy venom at 270

  45. I know that veli, this post was made way before the SSC broke the record. We’re updating this post as best we can as new cars break the record 🙂

  46. The Bugatti Veyron may no longer be the world's fastest car. Today — following a number of teasers and leaks — Barabus officially unveiled the TKR: a new 1005 horsepower supercar the automaker says is capable of doing zero to 60 mph in 1.67 seconds. What's more, the car reportedly has a top speed of 270 mph — nearly 20 more than the Veyron. Power comes from a 6.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged with dual intercoolers. The car has a full carbon fibre body and chassis. Further details remain sparse, but the automaker says it will sell the car for £360,000, which should translate to around $500,000, using typical automotive market conversion rates.

  47. There is also a new hennessy viper thats faster than the veyron, i know that its not soley manufacturer mods but it still is. There is also the new Lingenfelter C6 Z06 twin-turbo too, but like i said, these are not production cars, i just wanted to point them out.

  48. The best car all over the world is Koenigsegg CCXR its last model,it beats Bugatti Veyrons record.It has 1018 hp,and its redline,i mean top speed is 420+ km/h.Now get your choise,dont you think that KOENIGSEGG CCXR is the best car?

  49. Wind tunnel testing indicates that the Ultimate Aero could theoretically reach a top speed of 273 mph (439 km/h) given appropriate transmission gear ratios, although the supplied transmission would result in 260 mph (418 km/h) at the car's redline.

  50. Ok so you people think that the JAGUARXJ220 is really grate, But to me it is ugly.I think that the Lamborghini Murcelago looks better , and I think its faster too.

  51. UNK, Tyler, and all the other than keep saying the SSC is the fastest car in the world. I know this, look at when the post was made – March of 2007 – before the SSC broke the record. So read the full post before you make yourself look stupid.

    Here's an update we did in November about the fastest cars –

    There you'll see the SSC as being in first.

  52. I'm pretty sure that hte SLR would not make the list if the Ultima GTR was list here and the Buggati Veyron would not stand a chance against it as well

  53. Check out the Tesla Roadster. All electric car at 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds. 300 miles per charge. All 2000 of the 2008 models are sold at $99,999 but the higher volume 2010 models will be reduced to only $44,999.

  54. Chuck, the Tesla is awesome. Where did you hear the info about it being $45K in 2010? I know their plan to cut the price was coming, but is it official?

  55. dodge hennessey venom viper 1000 twin turbo is faster. 255 mph top speed. might want to fix that.

  56. the veyron is an engineering marvel,its unbeatable,would prefer it to an ssc or a tkr anyday,you could leave the steering and brake from 400kph and it wont stray from its line,amazing…….

  57. OKAY, we do have the world's fastest cars on display. Then which is the world's most beautiful car?

    I mean i wouldn't love to have a very fast car i cant race. So which car catches the eye and makes us lust for before we get to know all the details like speed, performance, etc.. (THE BMW CONVERTIBLE M6)

  58. Here's the 5 fastest cars I ever found to be true in surveys (online & reader's choice): 1. Bugatti Veyron 16.4, 2. Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo, 3. Koenigsegg CCX, 4. McLaren F1, 5. Edonis. Porche's new supercar was not included because it can be levelled as street-legal race car (like Mercedes Benz CLK-GTR), but can reach 254mph. Of all the magazine surveys I had read, Saleen S7 is the fastest at 253mph. Watch for the promising 18.4 of Bugatti, it may be the ultimate of all. Edonis was in concept production bred by Bugatti engine, but it can challenged McLaren F1. Lingelfelter Twin Turbo Corvette was theorize to reach 250mph but it's engine was adrenalize & customize.

  59. The barabus is now the worlds fastest car and it can go from 0 – 60 in 1.67 seconds , it can also go 270mph whith1005bhp and a v8 6Liter engine . The best thing is that it is much cheaper than the Buggati Veyron which cost £600,000 ($1,100,000) when the barabus costs $360,000.

  60. What the f-ck..???? The Dodge Viper Venom 1000 is faster then the Buggati! Go look it up you Spanner!

    Dodge Viper has got 255MPH

  61. this s bit dated.lambhorghini reventon must be surely faster than murcileago atleast.i think what si said about the topic s right-"fastest cars that my brother heard of"

  62. who ever made the list is so off, for one the bugatti can go 407 km/h not 402, secondly the fastest production car is the ssc ultimate aero, this can 411.2 km/h and has 1183 bhp, whoever wrote this is a complete moron



  64. the asshole who should rewrite this thing is giving wrong information thus saying should not go to this site anymore for he cant take the time to correct it so why should we go to this website and i speak for 23000 people who agree on my site



  66. Ok guys here. All these other cars that are claimed to be faster than the veyron are with the prime intention of the beating the bugatti veyron. The veyron is an engineering marvel and is not only fast but extremely luxurious. It costs around 5 million to make each veyron and they are selling it for 1.5 million, there are only like 300 or so i think in the world.

    more over, the bugatti veyron can actually rise above the grown. By engineering and other down-force methods it is able to restrain from rising

  67. sorry boys the bugatti veyron pur sang edition wins it with an intire body composed of carbon fibre and another light weight allow its lighter than the original veyron pushing it past the 257mph mark making it faster than the ssc

  68. So what about the 1988 Corvette Sledgehammer? It reached 254.8 mph / 409.9 km/h. had a L98 tuned port motor, not bad for a 350ci i'd say.. but i guess if u define production… hmm

  69. the lamborghini cant go 213 fyi, motortrend tested it and it barly reached 200. the slr would smoke it. and your stupid no matter how fast your car can go your never going to out run a radio.

  70. Wow, I really wish people would stop leaving these comments about the SSC and non-production cars. Read the whole article!

  71. yeah, the blue devil, hasn't been made yet and does not have enough aero work to hit 273. Look at the body, it is too similar to a regular corvette which does what, 180 tops? So much aero work was put into the Veyron just to keep it on the ground. If you show me the link from a legit source that says it hit 273, then I'll believe it. And the Veyron is governed for the tires. The tires will literally shred from the heat if you dont know what your doing. And the don't make the sledgehammer anymore, besiedes thats not a regular vette its customizied by calloway who works especially with vettes.

  72. The Porsche Carrera GT can actually go 216mph and the bugguti veron can go 253mph or 407kmh and the McLaren F1 can go 247mph

  73. if anyone has even bought the 2009 guinness book of records you will see that the ssc ultimate aero if the fastest prodution car full stop. dumb asses

  74. Helo guys.. !!! Veyron go 0-60 only 2.5 sec..

    and look at the body detail .. also interior.. it's called combine art and speed .. 5 stars for Veyron..

  75. SSC Ultimate Aero: 257 mph+, 0-60 in 2.7 secs. Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, base price is $654,400. Tested in March 2007 by Guinness world records, The SSC Ultimate Aero takes the lead as the fastest car in the world beating Bugatti Veyron.

    SSC Ultimate Aero specs

    Top Speed: 273 mph / 439.5 km/h

    0-60 mph: 3 seconds

    Engine: Supercharged V-8 1046 HP

    The Ultimate Aero is best known for its stability and endurance at speeds greater than 250 mph. In fact, it is estimated (in wind tunnel tests) that the supercar’s top speed is closer to 273 mph.

  78. Im 15 and i can see that not all of these are accurate, so dont have a cow over it..chill out but these are pretty BA cars my favorite is the McLaren F1!

  79. Even if though the SSC Ultimate Aero is the fastest car, I still prefer the bugatti if i could buy one.The SSC cant beat the bugatti in looks, I think that the SSC looks like crap too and the interior is boring. If you ever saw top gear were they tested the bugatti on the VW test track you'll see it that the car goes to 407km/hr, no joke. At over $900,000 pounds, I think its worth it.

  80. no doubt no doubt the fact is that ye the buggati is the fastest car in the world at the moment but on looks it always has to be 100% is the porshe carrea GT no doubt end of dicussing done finito comprenda

  81. the fastest car is the ultimate aero no other! it is fastest than the bughati! shet! back 2 u suckers!

  82. The Koenigsegg SSC is the fastest car street legal, but it doesn't go 270, the highest recorded is 257. And the

    mclaren f1 is not a production car.

  83. the top 11 fastest cars are here – #1 SSC Ultimate Aero TT, #2 Bugatti Veyron, #3 Koenigsegg CCX, #4 Saleen S7 Twin-Turbo, -#5 Mclaren F1, #6 Ferrari Enzo, #7 Jaguar XJ220, #8 Pagani Zonda F, #9 Lamborghini Murcielago, #10 Porshe Carrera GT, #11 Mercedes Benz SLR Mclaren

  85. I have some information about the SSC Utimate Aero TT here they are

    1.SSC Ultimate Aero: 257 mph+, 0-60 in 2.7 secs. Twin-Turbo V8 Engine with 1183 hp, base price is $654,400. Tested in March 2007 by Guinness world records, The SSC Ultimate Aero takes the lead as the fastest car in the world beating Bugatti Veyron.

  86. I have information about Bugattis's price here they are

    Bugatti Veyron $1,700,000

    The Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is the most powerful, most expensive, and fastest street-legal production car in the world, with a proven top speed of over 400 km/h (407 km/h or 253 mph). It reached full production in September 2005. The car is built by Volkswagen AG subsidiary Bugatti Automobiles SAS and is sold under the legendary Bugatti marque. It is named after racing driver Pierre Veyron, who won the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1939 while racing for the original Bugatti firm. The Veyron features a W16 engine—16 cylinders in 4 banks of 4 cylinders.

  87. About the mercedes mclaren slr – there are 3 versions. the normal slr, the slr 722 – about 5mph quicker and the 722gt another 2/3mph quicker then the 722…

  88. i know its not production but, i think the 2007 Lingenfelter Corvette Z06 427 Twin Turbo would beat any other car. it has 1132.0 kw / 1518 bhp, 1898.15 nm / 1400 ft lbs of torque

  89. NAAA Hek NAA! i think everyone should believe that the Lamborghini Reventon should be first on the list.

  90. Hi to all.

    The updated list of world's top ten fastest cars is very accurate and nice.

    And a massage for ferrari team: please built a car that can beat ssc ultimate aero!!!


  91. aero is not on the list causs they dont want it on the list but yeah reveton is cool

  92. Duude the speed you have written for Buggati Veryon is wrong.It means that some mercedes cars are having 260mph.And SSC Ultimate Aero is the fastest car in the world.

  93. even now ferrari cant become top rank but i believe 2010 ferrari fiarano is the best car of year……hehe…….ferrari still the best sport car…trust me



  96. SSC Ultimate Aero is the fastest car according 2 da guinnes world record n bugatti is second u cunts

  97. You said if you had the cash you would buy the f1 then the koinegsegg. You're an idiot normal people would have the veyron wich is the best and before you could reach the top speed of the koinegsegg it would brake or blow up. Bugatti can be proud of the technological human achievment they have achieved.

  98. the SSC Ultimate Athe SSC Ultimate Aero TT,[1] is currently the fastest production car in the world, with a fastest recorded speed of 413 km/h (257 mph).ero TT,[1] is currently the fastest production car in the world, with a fastest recorded speed of 413 km/h (257 mph).

  99. i build race cars and we have a lot of fun on the track

    why do they, and why would they build cars for the road, that are not built to take the sort of speed that they can do , apart from that i think they only place than can try them out is in germany on there freeways, every where else in the western world you have , silly speed limits , but these limits save lives , i have nothing againts fast cars just the idots that drive them beyond there limits , tony

    FERRARI is the best

  102. guys the ssc ultimate aero is by far the fastest production car in the world im 11 and i know that wat r u talking about the bugatti veyron that is numba 2 all the people that said that the ultimate aero fastest good on you cuz u r right if u din't lets just say you r wrong ok:)

  103. Yea' Bugatti Veyron Is On The Top of the Record List, Bugatti Veyron The Fastest Car In The Intire Universe… and It Rules 4ever! ;D

  104. my dear bro in the world fastest car is-:SSC Ultimate Aero EV- world's fastest electric car

  105. gallardo is a load of rubbishthere just a waist of money they break down so easy and all the time i know some one who has one

  106. I dont say that the Bugatti is not an extremelly fast car, but the SSC Ultimate Aero has 257 MPH and the bugatti has 254, and I think three numbers ahead might make difference in a race.

  107. lets have a vote

    say the car either ssc altimate aero or bugatti

    say one of them lets see wich one gets the most

  108. I appreciate you people who made this list but there are some other cars like the 911 gt1 which should also be in the list.

    1. BRo r u serious ok half of yall r alll naming super cars so you cant say that they are the fastest cars. the 911 gt1 is a frekin racing car ment for racing a bugatti is just itself stock a beast car and fastest… plus it looks tha best THANK YOUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  109. i would want to oppose the list above because barabus TKR SHOULD be ranked first position in the world.its acceleration is from 0-60 in 1.67 secs.Top speed 270 MPH.THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  110. Ferrari,Lamborghini,Koenigsegg,Saleen,Mclaren,Porsche and Bugatti are going to throw SSC into the dust

  111. actually, you missed the ssc ultimate aero TT, i know its just a Ford but it is the fastest car in the market, it could reach 256 mph if im not wrong, what i do know is that its only 4 or 5 mph faster than the veyron

  112. it dosent matter if the ssc is 1 mile faster or 10000000000 miles is atleast 4-5 miles faster and it would make a difference in a race

  113. The Ferrari Enzo replacement has been revealed not unveiled.It is none other than the F70. Ferrari said this car will have Twin Turbo Charged V8 Porwerplant producing 660 hp and weighs just 1000 kg (2200 lbs) with good power to weight ratio it will be more focused,faster,smaller and lighter than the Enzo.It’s production is also limited to 399 cars at around 1million dollars when it goes sale in 2012.It also has been hailed Bugatti Veyron beater.It going to be Ferrari’s most advanced and fastest production car ever made by them also aiming for top speed record.The will never back down they are the best.

  114. the bugati is fast but it is a car youd see hot chicks driving and what kind of jackass would by a car for 1.8 fucin million dollars dam it

  115. who is underistimating bugatti veyron it is the fastest car of them all it has 1oo1 hp and 407.738 kmp and 253 mph I have owened this car for 1,764,907 million.

  116. murcelago is in the list…bt the high end model of lambhorghini —reventon is not there…whoever made this list is a fool…

  117. Rehan, this list was made before the Reventon came out. You’d have known that had you read the article.

  118. Dude, there is not "slowest car in the world" but the fastest car is the Barabus TKR, the the SSC Ultimate Aero then the Bagutti… But the ssc has the Best body kit…

  119. Dude you’re all wrong!! The fastest production car is the Weber Faster One that can do 260mph!! Beat that!

  120. these cars rule the are so good that my balls come in my mouth i have never seen cars like that.i have a bmw of my own but its no good compared to these cars.its my dream to own a bugatti which will never happen

  121. motorbikes are faster then cars because if u go to google and type in worlds fastest motorbike 2010 it will come up with the motorbike that goes 300mph with a v8 engine. anyway the suzuki gsxr 1300 got more exeleration then any sports car. lol

    if you don't agree then send me an email at?

  122. yer but motor bikes if u crash then u get hurt heaps on cars u don't get hurt as much and if u have a motorbike than when it's raining u get wet and when it's cold u get cold i love motorbikes but i just wish they had like a invisable barrier that when it was raining the u don't get wet

  123. ya there may be faster cars than the bugatti veyron, but that's not really hard to do if you have a car that's super light. bugatti weighs 1.9 metric tons dry. 😉 but bugatti doesn't belong on the page of "fastest cars in the world". it belongs in its own category somewhere between the above and "most luxurious cars in the world". there's no other car, no matter what you say that has that kind of luxury. remember, the veryon's production costs ca. 7 mil. EUR. it's sold for 1 mil. before tax. it was never intended to make money. it was intended to overshadow all other hyper sports cars for generations to come. and no matter how fast the next fastest car in the world will be, there will never be another veyron.

  124. oh, and an acceleration from naught to 63 mph (100kmh) of under 2.5 sec. won't be beat very soon either. no human can shift as fast as that sweet sequential. you can let the mclaren f1 accelerate up to 160 mph before starting up the veyron and it will beat the f1 to 200 mph. (fun fact)

  125. The ultimate aero should be first.The bugatti should be second.The ultimate aero goes 257 while the bugatti goes 253 miles per hour. Look on Tell me that because I know your wrong. But every thing else is in order. Tell me how a mercadies goes faster then 257 miles per hour.

      1. stop telling people what to do wtf get off peoples ass man what the f-ck is wrong with you what are you a control freak or something what you the bad word police lay off we can say what ever the f-ck if we get blocked we get blocked and dont be like oh well i was just trying to save him from getting blocked no you werent you were just being a bitch

  126. im going to be the richest person in the world haaaaaaaaahaaaaah and im going to buy all of these cars so you cant have any so you can suck it.

    1. yes it is!

      is that why they just took off the Porsche Carrera GT and the McLaren Mercedes SLR of the top 10.

      which car is the fastest then?

    1. no the Bugatti veyron is not the fastest the ssc ultimate aroe is the fastest

  127. well that vcar need to step he's game up because the buggatti…… sssssssssssssssssssssssuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkssssssssssssss

    GO V-CAR

  128. the ssc ultimate areo is the fastest car in the world at 257 mph beating the bugati veyron at 253 mph.

    1. you are wrong there is a new a german car called the bugatti veyron super sport with 267 mph so that is the worlds fastest prodution car in the world

  129. You all are wrong Bugatti Veyron is not the fastest car neither is the SSC Ultimate Aero.The new fastest car is Bugatti Veyron Super Sport with a top speed of 268 mph achieved on the Volkswagen proving grounds of Ehra-Lesien.The engine just has enlarged turbos and intercoolers to give 1200 Hp and also this version has shredded a lot of weight.

  130. Alright everybody the list has been updated. Sorry it took so long. New pictures, new stats, new info, and current data.

  135. I got to say bugatti veyron is really very fast but if they can put saleen 27's style i would like it even more

  136. My spouse and i surely need to think far more in that direction to see things i can do regarding this.

  137. The Second Fastest Car is Dagget Gt is a 2000 Horse Power Engine too! Top Speed is 314 Miles Per Hour too! It is Street Legal to On Roads Or Highways too! Or Salt Flats in Navada State too!

  139.  I’m not surprise that Bugatti Veyron get the no. 1 spot. Thank you for posting such great writes about the fastest cars in the world. But it will be more helpful if you will add more information about the external, internal body of these cars.

  140. i think bugatti is the most expensive cars all of cars and i like bugatti it is very fast and it speed is 268 mph this is my dream car i want o buy it i learbed very well and hard working for do i buy it hehehehhehe i hope so.

  141. 1. New Bugatti Vernon Super Sport Second New #2: the Speed rcord 462 KL/N Per Hour to; or 286.44 Miles Per Hour too! Fastest Legal Supercar in the 50 States too!

  142. 1995 RUF CTR2 (sister car to porsche 993 911, but a separate production model
    by the manufacturer Ruf. – think camaro and trans am).

    217 mph top speed – 3.6 sec 0-60 – $250k msrp.
    John Lamm’s supercars magazine has it rated at 217 mph.
    Ian Kuah drove a CTR2 up to 218 mph, but 217 mph is posted everywhere else

    1. “Think Camaro and Trans Am”. Nothing t do with that. It’s more like “think a standard car and a heavilly tuned one”.

  143. This was list was published before the Nissan GT-R touch the road. So I can understand its exclusion.

    1. Hey there, the Nissan GT-R’s top speed is only 193 mph, so I’m afraid it does fall this list!

  144. you need to update your site the Hennessey Venom GT is the fastest “In 2014, a Hennessey Venom GT was recorded as exceeding 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h), but as the run was in one direction only, and only 16 cars out of a planned total of 29 have been sold, it does not qualify under the Guinness Book of Records or this list’s criteria as the worlds fastest production car.”

    1. Good point Kyle, I’ve updated the list, even if Guinness doesn’t recognize it.

    1. Good point! I’ve added the EB110 SS, thanks for the correction. Maybe I just didn’t want to push the awesome XJ220 off the list, haha.

  145. If you’re talking about cars in ‘production’ you need List of Hyundai performance specsList of BMW performance specs. the Lingenfelter is in more of a ‘production’ state than those two

  146. Mercedes C Class is the best car so far I own. I owned this car from Shaman Wheels, they have the best collection of Mercedes Cars & great after sales service too. This car is also the best car ever in my history of cars I own. This car is not the fastest but the best as consider in performance, aeverage etc.
