According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Veyron Super Sport is currently officially the fastest car in the world. On the company`s high-safety test track in Germany, it reaches an average top speed of 431 km/h. To achieve such speed, the power comes from an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine with 883 kW and 1500 Nm. Everything is wrapped in a smooth carbon fiber body. If you start thinking that only the British build fast cars. Well. So far, you are right. But five cars and another country is finally on the list of fastest cars. The latest Ford GT pays homage to the original GT40 that won Le Mans in the 1960s.

This GT also won Le Mans in a full race version with a combination of lightness, a twin-turbo V6 and aggressive aerodynamics. The road version sends 660 horsepower to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission This recipe takes the GT to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and through the quarter mile in 10.8 seconds, while reaching a top speed of 216 mph. “Murrica! The short-lived era of the Koenigsegg CCR as the world`s fastest production car began in February 2005, when it reached 241 mph on the Nardo Ring in Italy. Just two months later, the Bugatti Veyron broke the 250 mph barrier and won the crown at a speed of 253.8 mph. The 959 jostled with the Ferrari F40 for bedroom wall properties and had many features that the automotive world had never seen before. These days, 215 miles per hour is nothing, and Hennessey, who didn`t want to settle for average, created this beast of a car that was once the fastest in the world. Here are four of the fastest legal cars in the world, according to ABB. Remember when the Bugatti Veyron was the fastest homologated car in the world? Of course, overpaid football players bought them, and they were the most desirable cars in various racing games. At a demonstration at the Dubai Autodrome in the United Arab Emirates, where the Battista made its dynamic debut in the Middle East, the all-electric hyper GT celebrated a number of recently set world records in the final homologation phase. The new speed builds on its previous record of 282.9 miles per hour and catapults the American supercar into the list of the world`s fastest production cars.

When the Volkswagen Group first announced its strange plans for the Veyron, many thought the bosses were crazy. However, it seems that with enough money and willpower, you can achieve anything, and in 2005, Bugatti unveiled the finished Veyron, with an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine and 1,001 horsepower. At the time, it was the most expensive and powerful car in the world and it quickly became the fastest, reaching 253 miles per hour. Despite all the efforts and claims that attract attention, it is difficult to draw up a definitive list of the fastest production cars in the world. The waters are marred by endless discussions about what exactly counts as a production car, whether speeds were recorded on one or two passes, as well as many brands claiming theoretical but unproven top speeds. When engineers from Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing come together, the world benefits. The Valkyrie, or AM-RB 001 as it was known in development, is a fantastically wild hypercar. Behind your seat, a 6.5-liter Cosworth V-12 develops 1,160 horsepower, more than enough to compress your bowels for the 2.3 seconds it takes to hammer at 60 mph. And it has recently been spotted during road tests. First place in the world`s fastest super sports car went to Bugatti.

In 2019, driver Andy Wallace drove an optimised version of the 1,600hp 8.0-litre Chiron Super Sport on the Ehra-Lessien track. The changes included the 10-inch body extension, lowering and a new rear aerodynamic kit as well as a new exhaust adjustment. However, the real heroes were the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, which were x-rayed before assembly to ensure perfect structural integrity. See how the Chiron reaches 304 mph below: The LaFerrari is considered one of the ultimate legal road cars. The company didn`t intend to break top speed records, it simply created a hypercar that combines wild performance with advanced hybrid technology. Yes, you read that right. The LaFerrari is a hybrid. It uses a 6.3-liter V12 engine paired with a powerful electric motor and develops a combined output of 708 kW. Surprisingly, all this is then sent to a rear-wheel drive system.

An official top speed has not been recorded, but Ferrari insists it will accelerate to over 350 km/h. A somewhat hollow victory, this one. The Velo was the first true production car, making it the fastest by default. But following this logic, it was also the slowest. And at the same time, the most and least likely, say, to become confident and enslave humanity or to train as an architect. BEDFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM – MAY 6: The Bugatti Veyron participates in the Sharnbrook Hotels Charity. [+] `30k in one day` event in Bedfordshire. The Veyron is named after racing driver Pierre Veyron. The supersport version of the car held the world record for the fastest production car in the world, reaching an average speed of 408.84 km/h (254.04 mph). The Veyron was discontinued at the end of 2014. (Photo by Martyn Lucy/Getty Images) In November 2017, a Koenigsegg Agera RS with E85 fuel (1,360 horsepower) was driven by a factory driver at an average two-way speed of 277.8 miles per hour on an 11-mile enclosed lane of road in Nevada. The car, owned by a customer who suggested the performance, actually reached 284.5 miles per hour during the record attempt, which is breathtaking.

At that time, it also snatched the fastest metric from zero to 250 mph to zero (33.2 seconds), the highest average speed during flight miles (268 mph) and for the flying mile on a public road (276.3 mph). The title of “the fastest car in the world” is one that car manufacturers and racing drivers have been fighting for since the early days of the automobile. Today, with advanced aerodynamics, lightweight technology and electrification, these record-breaking speeds reach astonishing heights on the road, with some cars even starting to break the 300mph barrier. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport was produced in a limited edition of only 30 pieces. The Super Sport has 184 more horsepower and improved aerodynamics compared to the standard Veyron, allowing it to reach 267 miles per hour. This was enough to give the Veyron Super Sport a Guinness World Record in 2010 as the fastest production car in the world. Not all supercars over 200 miles per hour were produced in the 21st century. Let`s go back to the early 1990s, when Jaguar launched the fastest production car the world has ever seen.

Powered by a 542-horsepower turbocharged V6, the Jaguar XJ220 was able to reach 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, cover the quarter mile in 12.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 212 mph. It was astonishing numbers in 1992 that earned the XJ220 the title of fastest production car. until another British car manufacturer stole the show a few years later. As if the official top speed of the Agera RS wasn`t amazing enough, the average of two rounds was set on a closed section of public road with a customer car, rather than on the usual test track used for such tests.
